Brock­ovich to be an Aussie

Townsville Bulletin - - The Goss -

AMER­I­CAN en­vi­ron­men­tal cam­paigner Erin Brock­ovich has ap­plied for Aus­tralian cit­i­zen­ship.

Brock­ovich, 51, whose real-life battle to ex­pose a pol­lu­tion scan­dal was made into a hit movie star­ring Ju­lia Roberts, says she in­tends to pack up her Cal­i­for­nia home and move to Aus­tralia.

‘‘ I feel a kin­dred spirit here,’’ she said. ‘‘ The peo­ple are warm, gra­cious, and I feel a real sense of hope when I come here.

‘‘ From your beaches to your forests and wildlife, so much of this coun­try is pris­tine, and you have the chance to pro­tect it and get it right.’’
