Get perspective right

'We must face the fact that we live in a small island and every inch of land is required for the living.'

MR KEVIN LEONG: 'I disagree with the letters in support of the conservation of Bukit Brown Cemetery.

We must face the fact that we live in a small island and every inch of land is required for the living.

Conserving a few pieces of broken tombstones of immigrants who came earlier than us but were neither national heroes nor great philanthropists is unjustifiable in our context. If we were to conserve Bukit Brown, what about Bidadari and other cemeteries? We have done a far better job of conserving history than many other countries in the region. We should have our perspective right.'
