When Wei Dongying won the Zhejiang Local Hero Award, Hangzhou television asked her "why not let the factories keep going for just a few more years?" She replied: "Are you saying, if the police are after a murderer they shouldn't arrest him right away? They should let him keep killing for three more years, and then go arrest him? Because dumping wastewater is also killing people. And you want to let them keep going for three more years?"
