Merja Kyllönen, Minister of Transport in Katainen Cabinet 2011–2014, says her famous words:

”There’s 10000 residents and 70 hobbyist flyers against each other”

In Finland there’s a strict rule that one should not say that politician lied about something. So we must say that Merja Kyllönen was just talking about altered truth (muunneltu totuus in Finnish). The truth is that Malmi-Airport serves multiple purposes including search and rescue and in addition to that there’s over 7000 general aviation flyers in the area.
