    On Tuesday's Backchat, we're talking about the $580 billion project to build three artificial islands off Lantau, to provide more than 200,000 new flats and a new central business district. 
    The Kau Yi Chau Artificial Islands project has been described by the government as a major solution to the city's land supply and housing shortage. But 11 green groups have jointly called on the administration to scrap the plan, voicing concerns about the environmental impact.
    What do you think of this project? Is it worth the cost to address Hong Kong’s land shortage? What about its impact on the environment?
    After 9:15am, we’ll look at a call on the government to stop using rat trap glue boards after it was found that at least 25 wild animals had also been caught in them.
