We are at aroud 4.5 million and our public infrastrutures are already busting at the seams. How realistic is it to have a future population of 6 million ?
Our goverment forecast has been way off mark in first telling us we will be overpopulated during the 1970s. Then within the same generation - we find ourselves underpopulated and need mass import of non-locals to make up for the numbers.
What happen if they are wrong again ?
Even Australia with its large land mass and natural resources is reviewing it policy to ensure a sustainable population.
It is time our government take a good look at what is happening at ground level and don't bull doze ahead to another disaster.
