What a breath of fresh air from Dave McArthur (CSN 9 March). The use of the term ‘sustainable’ has not become standardized and usually reflects ‘green washing’. A good list of characteristics that would be truly sustainable in a housing complex is required if we are to come to grips with the challenges facing the future. Mr. McArthur’s suggestions are in that vein. They are not new, they have just been mostly ignored. Thanks, Dave.
