Protect the Harbour

Anyone who cares about people-powered paddling in Victoria will want to join tomorrow's protest in the Inner Harbour to voice dissent about a proposed large-scale marina for mega-yachts that would seriously disrupt kayakers and canoeists enjoyment of the area.

The good folks at Ocean River Sports are all over this issue and are coordinating the protests over a dumb, ugly proposal that will attract rich Americans' mega-yachts at the expense of everyone else.

I'm just worried that if things get more crowded in the Inner Harbour, the mega-yachts they bought before driving their hedge funds over a cliff might get scuffed up by a balloon full of paint and otter pee. Besides, with the whole blue world as their playground, wouldn't they have more fun cruising someplace wild and free... like, say, the coast off Somalia? Just a suggestion...
