I AM so pleased and proud that I live in Cannonvale in the beautiful Whitsundays. I was appalled at the behaviour of a large percentage of people in Bowen who attended a community forum last night. A group of people travelled to the forum, to learn and put forward relevant questions.
We were booed, jeered at, and with people using bad language etc, then told to go home and mind our own business, which is exactly what we were doing.
We are supposed to be one shire and I am disappointed to have to be among such rude people and I know there must be good people in Bowen somewhere. I also know that people in our area at the beach would never be so rude to visitors as a huge percentage of us rely on tourism not just the mines.
