One Nation revealed its Pilbara candidate as Perth resident Andrea Randle this month. It then quickly changed its pick to climate change sceptic David Archibald, who is also not a Pilbara resident.
I can hear the locals saying what a bunch of muppets.
Makes you wonder have they even heard of the Pilbara.
Yep and they still get the vote.
Todd Corporation signed a State Agreement with the WA Government last week to progress the Balla Balla mine, port and rail project. If it goes ahead it will create about 3000 construction and 900 production jobs. The company signalled an intent to have a residential workforce.
It would be great if BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto also prioritised local workers and businesses!
There’s no way that’s going ahead with the price of iron ore. If you’d listen to the Premier he said it’s moving to the next stage and maybe to the construction stage. Just remember there’s an election coming up.
Hope the Whim Creek Pub is a sacred site.
We have been carting in there for many weeks and contractors bring dongas etc. in there. Best thing is Whim Creek will reap the big rewards out of this.
In theory sounds great, but those days of living in these towns are over. FIFO is the only way and it's still local to WA.
Pretty hard to expect people to invest in mining towns, just look at what happened down at Ravensthorpe and Hopetoun.
Good luck finding 3000 people to relocate to a residential town in the middle of nowhere.
Just another election hoax. There is no funding for this and I doubt anyone would with the current iron ore price risk.
If Oakajee port and rail won't go ahead in WA, what makes us think this will? Remember Barnett's "full backing" of Oakajee? I'll believe it when I see it.
Another fishing spot taken and to be ruined.
It got a bit windy and rainy in the Pilbara last week as tropical cyclone Alfred made its way down the coast.
Yes please to the rain! Hold the wind.
Glad I no longer live near Telfer, got stuck in Port Hedland last year for a week waiting for the river flooding to go down! It keeps raining here in Alice but at least I don't need to drive through numerous rivers.
In other parts of the country a cat 1 is called a very windy day.
Pilbarians once again showed they are excellent at naming animals. Project Manta has asked the public to name a manta ray found off the North West Cape.
Manta ray Cyrus.
Flying shade sail.
People are excited because there is a new restaurant opening in Exmouth this month and they will be brewing their own beer.
Well done lads. Awesome stuff, can't wait to come up and check it out.
Melissa Price, Durack
Awesome stuff, capitalising on future tourism etc. Always said why is there no brewery in the region.
That is good news for Exmouth, wish it was there when I lived in Exmouth.
There are some great boat names in the Pilbara. We posted two to Instagram last week, including the one pictured.
100 per cent.
Could this be the best-named boat in the Pilbara?
