A move by the WA Greens to ban balloons and other singleuse plastics drew plenty of debate from both sides of the issue.
Before you start condemning this attempt to stop balloons from polluting the oceans and waterways, Google the effects of those things and the damage done to sea life. We need to step up as responsible global citizens. Julie Pearse
Do you stupid people really think that banning the piddly amount of balloons and drinking straws that Australia releases compared to, say, China, is going to make one little bit of difference? Tony Lewis
We should be able to make such small changes without much
difficulty. Only an itty-bitty thing, but a start. No harm in trying and setting an example for other countries and organisations. Sonya Matheson
One only has to spend time on our coastal waters and beaches to see this type of rubbish in abundance. This is OK by me and this is also about the limit of the toxic Greens’ capacity to contribute to this country. Michael King
And not one job of any description will come from these decisions. Peter Evans
A proposal to put Karratha’s war memorial in the Red Earth Arts Precinct is one of several under consideration. The local RSL is not happy about it.
RSL. It is only a token monument where it currently is and the service hasn’t been held there since 2014. Let it be where it belongs. Surely one day a year isn’t a problem in the residential area. Or maybe let our Vets decide. Dianne Lockett
It should stay where it currently is. It is a memorial, not an “artistic” centrepiece. It has plenty of parking in its current place, central in town and can be seen by everyone coming through town. Klinton Flood
