Our Coalition announces with profound regret the sudden death yesterday of one our co-founders Owen McShane, at the age of 71. For decades, Owen has been a lucid, articulate voice of reason across a wide range of infrastructure and planning issues, always impeccable in the depth of his research and staunchly courageous in his willingness to question the rationale for centralisation. We join his many friends and colleagues around the world in conveying our deep sympathy to his wife Jenny, in a loss that we also feel so deeply of someone whose friendship and irreplaceable wise counsel we will miss.
