I give notice that on the next day of sitting I shall move that -
1. The Senate notes: a) The Environment Minister Tony Burke’s intention to transfer responsibility for protecting our nationally threatened species and wilderness places to state governments by March 2013. b) That Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett is ready to sacrifice James Price Point for a gas hub.
That the Senate take note of the answer given by the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (Senator Conroy) to a question without notice asked by Senator Waters today relating to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and dumped dredge spoil.
Tonight I joined Simone Dejun - The Greens for Longman in Caboolture for “Together we can: Caboolture Conversations” to discuss how we can make our communities more connected and caring. We were joined by Tamara McMaster from Share the Dignity and Nooreen Harris from Multicultural Association of Caboolture and Surrounds as well as a room full of passionate and engaged locals keen to see the best for the Caboolture and Moreton Bay region. Thanks for having me Simone!
