3rd Runway

Advisory Council on the Environment (ACE) will study the Environmental Impact Assessment Report of the 3rd Runway. It was reported that at least 2 members in the ACE disapproved the conservation plan put forward by the Airport Authority. Dr Hung Wing-tat, Deputy Chairman of ACE and Professor of PolyU, urged to create a marine park to protect the dolphins before the commencement of construction. Another member of ACE, Chairman of Greenpower Dr Eric Tsang said unless Dr Hung’s bid was taken by the Airport Authority, he will veto the EIA report.

Happy Birthday

Chief Executive CY Leung turns 60 today. HT wishes him good luck for the rest of his term but with the proposal of the 2017 CE election rolling out the end of this year, challenges to him are tough.
