Premier Anna Bligh has listened to the Greens and environment groups and committed to protect Bimblebox Nature Refuge from Clive Palmer's China First coal mine only a day away from the Queensland state election, heaping pressure on Campbell Newman to do the same should the LNP win Government tomorrow.
The Queensland Greens have strongly criticised the LNP’s short-sighted decision to defer land acquisitions needed for the cross-river rail project, saying it is further evidence of the old parties’ lukewarm commitment to public transport.
Protecting Mackay and the Whitsundays way of life means protecting Queensland’s farmers and food bowls. It means having healthy coasts and waterways. It means a better public health system with a greater focus on preventative care.
This is what the Greens are asking voters to consider when casting their vote tomorrow.
The Greens Candidate for Yeerongpilly Libby Connors today warned that the LNP had made no commitments as to what actions they would take in government with respect to Gladstone Harbour.
