    Come on Dianne. The entire Green project is a farce. If Minister Johnson doesn't give a rats behind about the environment (Sandy Pond) why should your kids. People were giving their neighbourhoods 20 minute makeovers this week and the Minister is allowing the poisoning of Sandy Pond and surrounding area. Your kids are wasting their time..........sorry.
