Cane toad fart­ing an­swer

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

AS YOUR editorial of Oc­to­ber 13 sug­gested, along with all the wail­ing and scream­ing from the lo­cals of Port Dou­glas about the high­way in­ter­sec­tion, this re­jec­tion of ac­tion is a trav­esty of ma­jor pro­por­tions.

Not only has it ma­jor safety im­pli­ca­tions - par­tic­u­larly for the lo­cal dick­ywack­ers who can’t read road signs and should not be driv­ing any­way - but it once again is an at­tempt by the au­thor­i­ties to sti­fle tourism.

The more en­light­ened of us had al­ready geared up with our fold­ing chairs and es­kies to tod­dle down and watch the pro­posed traf­fic lights change from red to green and take side bets on those lo­cals who “mis­cal­cu­lated”.

The chang­ing of the lights could have been a ma­jor boost to our lo­cal tourism in­dus­try, in­stead we are now back to the draw­ing board.

Sug­ges­tions please to the Gazette. To start the ball rolling I sug­gest a cane toad fart­ing con­test.
