Re: referendum on limiting second homes

This is such a hypocritical, sour grapes bunch of BS.
  • These same villages didn't object to receiving the taxes paid when the houses were built and sold.
  • The local land owners didn't object to making their big profits selling off the farm land that was in the families for generations to the developers.
  • The villages didn't object to receiving the funds to extend the power, water, telephone and cable infrastructures for the new developments.
  • The developers didn't object to fleecing the people who could afford their big markups to buy the finished properties.
Maybe this make sense in some places, but in Romansh areas where the question is the survival of their language in the community, people DID and DO and WILL object... but they are rarely really asked.
On the top of that: when an area has a large German speaking minority, the chances of actually seeing objections followed by effects get smaller by each new home built.

You seem to believe that as long as you can pay people off, they should shut up. This in not what I read in the Romansh media. At all.
