Call to put end to rangelands issue
The WA Government/Parliament needs to get off its proverbial backside and resolve the rangelands tenure problems in the State’s north, without further procrastination.
People trying to make a go of what must be marginal grazing country at best, have been living right out on the edge for decades.
What the future holds beggars belief.
This set-and-forget attitude must end.
Any government would not pull it on in an urban seat, because the constituent can walk round the corner and give the local member an earful.
The fact these people devote their life to the care of rangeland country, through drought, fire, cyclones and good seasons, without expecting a free ride is surely the credentials governments dream of.
Yet they are continually swamped with a barrage of bureaucratic paperwork, poor communication services, and an uncertain future.
Urban WA would not stand it for a minute; why should they?
