YMCA and dinosaur museum cashing in

Andrew Leigh has the slightly odd announcement of pork dollops for local bodies:

Federal Government tourism quality funding of $76,668 for the National Dinosaur Museum in Nicholls and $84,425 for the YMCA of Canberra was announced today by the Federal Member for Fraser, Dr Andrew Leigh.

Dr Leigh said the National Dinosaur Museum would benefit from new display cabinets and a new waterproof shaded decking area for visitors to rest and enjoy the environment.

“The YMCA of Canberra will also benefit from important redevelopment that involves the construction of additional accommodation rooms, some with ensuite facilities, new bathrooms and additional office space,” said Dr Leigh.

“I congratulate the National Dinosaur Museum and YMCA of Canberra for strongly demonstrating their commitment to improving the tourism experience and thereby winning funding from this highly-competitive grants program,” Dr Leigh said.
