Quake ob­ser­va­tions

Townsville Bulletin - - Text The Editor -

I can un­der­stand the Aus­tralian gov­ern­ment help­ing coun­tries around the world when nat­u­ral dis­as­ters hap­pen, but when nat­u­ral dis­as­ters hap­pen in Aus­tralia the gov­ern­ment seem very re­lu­cant to use the same re­sources and money. It would be nice to have our back­yard looked af­ter Re Ja­panese earth­quake: We can­not af­ford to give ex­tra help to for­eign­ers to what we al­ready give to the UN for In­ter­na­tional Aid when we have to levy our­selves to help our own flood disas­ter vic­tims... and many have yet to get that help.
