Balancing The Environment and The Economy

Back to article »

  • I wonder if the “economy” side of the balancing act is fully understood by Nova Scotians. Much of our local news consists of a group or individual making a case for receiving a new or enhanced service from government. In other words, they are seeking a larger share of the wealth. OK, but unless it is taken from somewhere else (where an equally compelling case can probably be made), we need to create more wealth to afford it. Holding that “X is not worth the risk” should include realistic assessments of what we may not be able to afford without X.
