Did you Need That Tree, Sir?

I have written in this space before that the Muqueam/UBC Golf Course deal was done entirely in back rooms without consultation of any kind between Premier Gordon Campbell and Musqueam chief Ernie Campbell.

Today, the Sun reports that Metro politicians raw screaming about a new provincial law that allows Victoria to seize land - particularly Pacific Spirit park - without compensation.

It's amazing how so-called democratic governments can subvert the very principles they vow to uphold and champion when no one is looking.
