Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

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.
