Short quote

“Modernity colonizes and colonialism modernizes lands, especially wetlands.” Rod Giblett;  2014

Longer quote

“The modern colonial city is made possible by a colonizing writing on the surface of the earth. It transforms wetlands to market garden and market garden into suburb, thus completing the transition from wetland through agriculture to suburbi-culture with the possibility of aqui-culture aborted. [ ] Modernity colonizes and colonialism modernizes lands, especially wetlands.” Rod Giblett (2014:151) Canadian Wetlands: Places and People; Intellect Ltd

“Half of the world’s wetlands have been destroyed in just the last 100 years”  Source
