In the last few days something kind of became clearer for me.
Not in a good way.
In Whitehorse there is an idea that spot land application are BAD
with spot land application i mean, what it means to me:
residency in the the middle of nature...well it is already by law established you can't be right in the middle, you have to be close to an existing road.
The story goes, all these people wanting to live outside of the city limits, create a very large footprint on the environment. the story goes that they demand government services. Hence which would create a very large footprint.
As does our new water well here in the community, which i was dead set against.
I can only speak for myself, but i am sure there are more who think the same
I came to live rurally, to be without many amenities.
Like one thing of the problem is that the government feels it should provide all these amenities.
Like there is a statement "to give everybody clean water/ internet access" etc etc
I think they/we confuse two things.
There are people who are born and raised in poor conditions and are suffering because of that and yes, i do think my government has a responsibility to provide accessibility to education, water etc.
But hence, it seems to me, that now under that rule of looking after, they impose upon me that i be looked after.
I am not asking, i am not even wanting all these services.
I CHOOSE to live they way i do.
