We’re now slow growers

By Kerces - 21 March 2006 6

Population growth figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics today show the ACT’s population boom has slowed.

The ABC reports Canberra’s population growth for the 12 months to September last year was only 0.5 per cent. This is three times less than Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania. The Northern Territory had the largest population increase with 1.7 per cent.

Previously the ACT has lead the country’s population growth rates.

And our official population (well, as of last September)? 325, 800

What’s Your opinion?

So they want us to go out and try for babies? If its for my government, I might just try to see what I can do.

As long as the one for the treasurer doesn’t have his ears or his boss’s morals and eyebrows.

I’m not surprised. I never had so many advances spurned as in the last 12 months. Maybe I should stop taking them to Maccas.
