Eye : Hey Eva Cheng, let's walk the talk
5 August 2009
South China Morning Post
What a splendid idea! Activists trying
to save the Kowloon Star Ferry bus terminus from government destruction
want transport secretary Eva Cheng to put her money where her mouth
is. Ms Cheng says it's no big deal to walk the 15 minutes from the new
terminus to the ferry pier. She says walking is good for you. The activists
want her to practise what she preaches - doing the walk herself in hot
weather. Go on, Eva, do it. Leave your chauffeur-driven car at home.
In fact, don't just do it this once. Give up your car for good. Tell
your government colleagues to do the same. It will help the environment,
ease traffic congestion and save taxpayers' money. You've talked the
talk, now walk the walk.
