Arborcide at St. Saviour's

Large, mature trees more than a hundred years old are being cut down at Saint Saviour’s.
See http://queenscrap.blogspot.com/2007/07/parkside-pinky-urge-violation-of.html for horrifying photos of this massacre.
The whole situation has gone over-the-top. The local Council member, Dennis Gallagher, who is currently being investigated by the police on charges of sexual assault, allegedly gave the developer permission to cut down the trees. It is known that CM Gallagher has been negotiating with the new owner to develop residential housing on the site while the community has actively requesting the site to become a park – a prospect that is put in jeopardy by this tree slaughter.
