GOVT’S LAX ATTITUDE TO PRC CYCLISTS AT WOODLANDS CRESCENT IS DISAPPOINTING

Are we changing our environment to accommodate foreign workers' habits? The location where the pictures are taken is a hot spot for cyclist (foreign workers) along woodlands crescent every morning and evening. A video was being uploaded recently.

The opaqueness of the palm oil supply chain make it possible for the big companies here to claim that they are not responsible for the burning. If their money does not fuel the activities occurring at the plantation level, how on earth these Singapore registered and listed companies generate billion of turn over and profits? This is the Govt's classic way of dealing with the problem without antagonising the foreigners! Taichi to the market players!
