ONE YEAR AGO...

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS | WELCOME -

THIS time last year, we paid trib­ute to Casey Stin­son, the 19-year-old killed in a hor­rific bus crash on Shute Har­bour Rd.

Casey was one of 13 peo­ple on board the Whitsunday Tran­sit bus which left the road and over­turned on Fe­bru­ary 16, 2016.

As the elec­tion drew closer, we met first-time can­di­date for Whitsunday Re­gional Coun­cil’s Divi­sion 1, Mark Yore, who had a clear vi­sion for the town in­clud­ing pre­vent­ing Air­lie from be­com­ing a “con­crete jun­gle”.

Whitsunday Res­i­dents Against Dump­ing (WRAD) ex­pressed their frus­tra­tions af­ter they were re­fused an in­vi­ta­tion to an af­ter­noon tea with Prime Min­is­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull while he was in Mackay. Group mem­bers hoped it would al­low them to speak to the Prime Min­is­ter about pro­tect­ing the reef and the Ab­bot Point ex­pan­sion.
