Carmichael Mine / Abbot Point
I support the Carmichael Mine infrastructure with strict conditions attached: that they have trust funds set up to ensure all workers are paid, the environment is protected and tax payers are not left to clean up a mess in the event of failure. Great Barrier Reef
There is no doubt the Government needs to do what ever it can to protect and support the reef.
The first thing they can do is adopt the Glenn Lazarus Team policy to ensure Australian seafarers are working on all ships operating in our waters. Education
We support: Australian Government funding of schools and the higher education system, including the Gonksi reforms, stopping cuts to TAFE and standing against the deregulation of university fees; Health
The Glenn Lazarus Team will aim to reverse the freeze on Medicare rebates, strengthen Medicare and protect bulk billing. Tourism
We will establish an agricultural hub to attract new businesses and opportunities in the agricultural sector.
We will develop a new tourism plan for the sector to drive tourism growth and establish Mackay as the conference and events hub of North Queensland.
Key areas of the waterfront precinct will be redeveloped to establish a vibrant and bustling centre of restaurants, social activity and lifestyle options, ie BBQs, recreational options, etc, all of which will provide jobs, community engagement and improve the region’s liveability.
