Dick Smith is supporting William Bourke of Sustainable Population Party in the North Sydney By-Election Campaign. Dick Smith said: In the past I’ve never given support in this way. However, I really believe it’s important that we give a message to the government that the general public realise it’s not possible to have perpetual growth in a finite world. I see the wonderful North Sydney that I knew as a kid, with lots of backyards and trees, being completely destroyed as we move to ever increasing population growth. I believe North Sydney will end up like Shanghai with not one backyard left, just high rise everywhere. For further details, see here for the Sustainable Population Party website.
