WHY ONLY NOW?
It bewilders me no end why the DENR and the business association of Boracay are acting on the island's problems only now when the issue has become grave.
I am pretty sure they have learned from the the red flag signs years ago when the once pristine waters were infected with coliform bacteria, yet nothing seemed to have come out of it.
Now, there's the problem with the dump. Then the issue of who actually owns the island remains unresolved. Over and above these two, the original settlers - the Aetas - are being rounded up and pushed back inland.
Trouble's definitely brewing in paradise.
