Deep sea anger

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

YOU re­mind us that the La­bor Party has put off any de­ci­sion re­gard­ing the dec­la­ra­tion of a Co­ral Sea Ma­rine Park be­fore the elec­tion to avoid an­ger­ing the deep-sea an­glers.

This type of in­de­ci­sive spin is more likely to alien­ate ev­ery­one than ap­pease the few who fish be­yond the Great Bar­rier Reef.

Tony Abbott on the other hand, is very de­ci­sive - he is go­ing to rid us of all plans for new ma­rine parks.

This does not in­spire the rest of us in the elec­torate who de­pend on tourism for a liv­ing and/or care about the fu­ture of the planet and pro­tect­ing all that lives on it. It’s called sus­tain­abil­ity.

We are faced with a choice be­tween bad and worse this time around. I’m opt­ing out.
