Com­mon sense

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

WITH all the con­cern about the dredg­ing sludge, why not dump the sludge well out­side of the con­ti­nen­tal shelf where it is so deep that by the time it gets to the top it will do no harm to the bar­rier reef or our fish­ing or any­thing else?

Both ways, the jobs and no dam­age to one and all, but make the mines dump it miles out from the con­ti­nen­tal shelf. Think about it and it will work for all con­cerned. Not in­side the bar­rier reef if they do it will be an­other Glad­stone af­fair.

Use com­mon sense for a change in­stead of greed. Re­liance Lee PROSER­PINE
