Clar­ity needed on Du­rack mem­ber’s plebiscite po­si­tion

Pilbara News - - Opinion -

I am dis­ap­pointed that Mem­ber for Du­rack Melissa Price did a door-stop in­ter­view at Par­lia­ment House on Oc­to­ber 11, say­ing no one in Du­rack has ob­jected or is un­happy with the plebiscite.

Many in Du­rack have ob­jected or are un­happy with the plebiscite, but she has failed to lis­ten; we still aren’t clear ex­actly what her po­si­tion is.

It is an im­por­tant is­sue for many of us, my­self in­cluded. I am hap­pily in­volved with my part­ner of 14 years and am won­der­ing if we’ll be af­forded the same right as other Aus­tralians and be al­lowed to marry one day.

Stop de­lay­ing and let Par­lia­ment do its job and vote on this very im­por­tant is­sue to­day.

Same-sex cou­ples want to be treated equally be­fore the law; not too much to ask at all.

Peter Foster, Tom Price
