"...nowhere did the reporter mention the well-known merits of covenants in conserving natural assets like green spaces and trees, despite the clear mention of this to her in our interview and in the authoritative report from the B.C. Law Institute we supplied her on this subject. It was bizarre to exclude this well-founded perspective given that so many folks supporting the legal defence of the covenant cite the loss of big trees as a main concern."
I find this so interesting that they are doubling down on the tree preservation angle while at the same time are trying to enforce a private covenant that would allow four single family homes to be built which could cut down more trees than the townhouse project. The private covenant has nothing to do with trees, it has to do with preserving the area for expensive homes.
