Avoid world and live here

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil an­nounced its “Dis­cover Par­adise Re­lo­cate Re­sources Pack” with a not-at-all-veiled dig at the an­tics of Amer­i­can and Bri­tish pol­i­tics by ask­ing whether read­ers wanted to ‘exit’ thanks to Brexit and of­fer­ing help to get over the ‘hump’ that is Trump by mov­ing to Dou­glas.

“We’re not in­flu­enced by the pol­i­tics of Brexit or Pres­i­dent Trump, but we do see an op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote the op­por­tu­ni­ties in Dou­glas to those who may be look­ing to em­i­grate in these un­cer­tain times,” said Mayor Leu.

She ac­knowl­edged “some peo­ple might be a bit cranky” about the cam­paign at the re­cent Dou­glas Busi­ness Fo­rum, but said peo­ple talk­ing about Dou­glas as a im­mi­gra­tion des­ti­na­tion was the idea.

The asked some tourists if they’d move here. See page 17 for their an­swers.
