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
