A na­tion united

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

WHAT a unit­ing and up­lift­ing sug­ges­tion from an elec­tion can­di­date who sug­gested mov­ing Australia Day to a Wat­tle Day.

Yes, let us all cel­e­brate the green and gold and what is fab­u­lous about Australia while ac­knowl­edg­ing on Jan­uary 26 our First Na­tion's dis­pos­ses­sion and pain.

And while we are at it, let us have a new flag and na­tional an­them that rep­re­sents all of us. One day we will all be to­gether as a na­tion that is equal, fair dinkum and true blue.

Colin Hughes, Green­mount.
