The CT is still carrying on as if the contamination of the Belconnen Naval Station is news. 10 years ago anyone who cared knew it was rife with PCBs. But there’s an election on so Jon Stanhope is suggesting that he’d quite like to buy up some of the land for a wilderness reserve to preserve the spotted newts and sun moths. On this issue the Greens would like to know if the deadly waste is on the move.
