Get it done already – bulldoze the trees, kick out the wildlife.

Maybe the greens need to learn what in principle support means.

“It’s staggering and disappointing that the ACT Government will say they are supportive of the proposed arrangements without first undertaking any environment studies of the nature reserve,” Ms Le Couteur said.

It’s staggering and disappointing to hear that the ACT Greens could seriously be “shocked and dismayed” by anything said or done by the “Big Canberra”, development-at-any-price Government which they prop-up.

Seems you missed this paragraph in your eternal goal of whinging about every government comment or decision. .

“In an answer to a question from Opposition Leader Alistair Coe, Mr Steel said the car park had in-principle support subject to consideration of heritage and environmental impacts”

Canberra should set aside land to create a future Territory Memorial to our current government.

They have one in Budapest and it has become a major tourist attraction there: http://www.mementopark.hu/

Why are these people who weren’t elected getting a voice in the Legaslative Assembly question time? Can anybody just turn up and do that? She is a member of the public.

Unelected, so just a public servant. 🙂

That this had to come out by means of an FOI claim underlines how secretive this project has been at the ACT as well as the federal level. For background, see the campaign diary of Heritage Guardians, co-ordinating the community opposition to this unnecessary and ill-conceived project: http://honesthistory.net.au/wp/petition-on-change-org-against-proposed-war-memorial-extensions/
