The Canberra Times reports that the local chamber of commerce is warning noisy civic shop owners to stop annoying the mighty ALP owned mega corp QIC which now owns the town.
- While Mr Peters declined to comment on the majority of allegations against QIC, he did give some advice to retailers claiming the corporation was unfairly raising rents to push out existing shops to make way for further redevelopment of the city centre.
”Landlords will take the steps they need to redevelop centres and existing retailers are often in a strong position, whereby they can negotiate a good position inside [the building] when the complex is completed,” Mr Peters said.
”Stop fighting and negotiate a good outcome for yourself.”
Comrade Stanhope believes that a lack of complaints coming to his office indicates there is no problem.
