Just leave the flock of geese in peace
I write in response to the letter (June 24) of Tony Shaw, chairman of Gardens of Pauatahanui Inlet, in which to support its policies he alleged that my two given examples of anecdotal information implied Guardian ownership of the examples.
To suggest I was implying Guardian ownership of the examples to support its policies is to draw a very long bow.
I stand by my comments, which were prompted by the Guardian use of the more easily accepted word ‘‘control’’ instead of cull.
Today our communities are computer literate, owning computers, laptops and mobile phones. They are in touch with the world. They deserve information based on scientific fact rather than hearsay.
Let us leave the small flock of geese in peace. They will surely fly away once the Transmission Gully road project gets under way.
