The Greens’ plan to lower farm energy bills would greatly help farmers in the Maranoa electorate, says Greens’ local candidate for the Federal election, Grant Newson.
The Bruce Highway is a vital community and economic link for rural and regional Queenslanders and it deserves better than just more of the same thinly veiled pork barrelling and slogans from the ALP and LNP, say the Greens.
The Greens today released new figures that show how Queensland universities can be $480 million better off and Queensland university students can avoid a potential debt increase of $115 million over the next four years.
Greens candidate for Maranoa Grant Newson is concerned that areas which have been clear-felled inside the boundaries of the Bunya Mountains National Park could be earmarked for future development.
Mr Newson has posted screenshots taken from Google Earth on his Facebook page which show forested areas that have been logged inside the park since 2006.
The LNP is totally hypocritical claiming it doesn’t want to ‘slug’ shoppers with a cost for plastic bags but is happy to fork out $40,000 of taxpayers’ money to a multinational fastfood company.
