I complained in a recent post about the lying flyers I was getting from those bastards -- big sugar interests.
They were saying that the job of restoring the Everglades was almost done -- note the word "Finish." In the flyer they show one puzzle piece left saying we are in "The Final Phase of Restoration". I know enough about the Everglades to know that IS NOT TRUE.
I asked Dawn Shirreffs, Senior Everglades Policy Advisor for the Everglades Foundation what was the scoop with these lyin' flyers. Here is her quote:
"No one believes that we are at the final stage of restoring America’s Everglades. It is disingenuous for the sugar industry to suggest otherwise. There is much to be done such as the implementation of the critical Central Everglades Planning Project which will help move water south from Lake Okeechobee. We also need funding for construction of the C-43 and C-44 reservoirs to help stem pollution in the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers.By the way Dawn, congratulations on your new job!
We look forward to working with everyone who cares deeply about protecting America’s Everglades – the water supply for 7 million Floridians."
