In the local paper stuffed right on the back page is a notice to sell land at Nicholls. block 17 section 73, next to the Nicholls shop to the CMC, Canberra Muslim Community.

Come and express your view’s.

[ED – Does anyone get upset when these deals are done for other groups?]

My view is that people who can’t use an apostrophe correctly have no business opposing the sale of land to anyone who (presumably) wants to use it as a site for a school, or possibly ESL resource centre.

If this becomes a redo of Camden, I’m leaving Canberra.

why not ‘spread the word’ too about sales of land to people who might want to build a house and rasie a family, so more people infesting the planet. shame on them.

what is your point – why is a muslim purchaser an issue? are you virginia hausseger in drag?

Would it be presumptuous of me to read deep into the wording of this article and draw the obvious conclusion?

I cannot wait to spread my “view’s”!

Brianh, what is the issue here? Did you take a similar course of action when the Catholic primary school went in a few blocks down the road? I could go on…

I wonder what kind of voice Brianh wants to hear. I hope it not a xenophobic bigoted voice he is after.

Maybe the OP was misread, I didn’t see ‘school’ in that post.

However, if there is to be a school there it will have to follow specific guidelines showing ability to support itself, sustainability (new criteria) and that it will not take numbers away from the existing schools within the same area.

Those reasons above are why several schools (irrespective of denomination or cultural background) were denied several years ago.

So long as this process is exactly the same as the process of any other community organisation accessing land, what exactly is the issue? Unless they put “terrorist training camp” on the land application. Then I give them points for high comedy.

Blocks of land in community precincts get sold to church groups, charities and the like ALL THE TIME.

I don’t like the sound of where this is heading…

sounds like it.

maybe the canberra muslim community want a place where they can meet with the rest of the canberra community and allow people to be able to interact in a friendly environment?

prior to 911, wasn’t the world a nicer place for muslims and other religious groups?

looks like those days are gone.

interested to see what the site will be used for. not to go and protest against it, though.

Virginia, are you seeing what a ban can do?

Aw gee… Muslims buying land for a school. What a travesty.

There seems to be a few people here from the school of ‘I’m not a racist… but….’

You guys should feel welcome to move to a whites only gated community and continue inbreeding.

You make me sick.

I can say for me personally I’m not for it on a traffic and parking side of things, but! the point of this post was to address the fact that it may happen, I did a quick door knock last night and people who live directly across the road didn’t even know. Doesn’t matter what gets put on the land the public should have a right to know and go to the meeting and say yes or no

Contact ACTPLA (details to do so contained within what you just read), have your say, go have a beer and win a meat tray at the local pub.

I wonder how many people who dispute this are members of the F-Off Were (sic) full brigade ?

Makes me wanna do a short run of shirts that just say “F##k On, We’re Empty”

Or Non “Xenophobe Aussie Pride”

Wow,
not once in the OP did Brianh mention he disliked Muslims or objected to any land sale. All the OP says is that few people in the neighbourhood have any idea what is going on at the site and they want to find out.

But hey i can read between the lines and i’ve got a pitchfork too, lets get him.
RACIST, RACIST, RACIST.

If I’m correct, this is probably land for a permanent site for the Muslim school currently operating at the old Watson High School by the CMC. If that’s the case I see no probelm at all. In fact whatver use the CMC has in mind would have my support. It’s the same process that other community organisations, including other non government schools, go through in gaining acess to land.

As to a “meeting to say yes or no”, what a rediculous idea.

We will never learn.

Brianh, why did you do a door knock? What purpose could that have served?

If CMC are planning to build a school, or a mosque, or any other building they will need to go through the normal planning process which includes providing notice at the site which then invites the general public to make comment on the proposed development. This is the same process that any other religion (or business or individual) has to go through for any development outside a standard house.

But considering this is the riot-act I’ll go grab my pitchfork and torch, and we’ll go show the CMC who’s boss. That’s what you want right?
