Why Jan­uary 26?

The Advertiser - - LETTERS -

I JUST looked out my Aus­tralian cit­i­zen­ship doc­u­ment.

My hus­band, me and our two chil­dren were adopted as Aus­tralian cit­i­zens on De­cem­ber 16, 1985, with Tea Tree Gully Coun­cil Mayor Tilly con­duct­ing the cer­e­mony.

It was a won­der­ful oc­ca­sion, and many were held each year to cope with the amount of mi­grants wish­ing to be­come Aus­tralian cit­i­zens. What’s the prob­lem?

JEAN HARNEY, High­bury and en­joy the many life­style stan­dards that are con­tin­u­ally of­fered for our fam­i­lies.

But Mr Mor­ri­son is also very cor­rect in stat­ing “we must do bet­ter”.

The “must-do-bet­ter” cat­e­gory surely has to be as­so­ci­ated with cli­mate change, power and en­ergy fac­tors be­com­ing ma­jor Gov­ern­ment chal­lenges, more fund­ing for health and for the ed­u­ca­tion of our chil­dren, and prop­erly fund­ing the NDIS scheme for the dis­abled.

De­vel­op­ing in­fra­struc­ture through­out the na­tion that will max­imise trans­port re­quire­ment out­comes, and rev­enue to the states are also some other ma­jor pri­or­i­ties which, in my opin­ion, are the more im­por­tant is­sues that should drive the Prime Min­is­ter to act on and not just talk about to ap­pease us.

DES KEMP, St Agnes is the gate­way to our main tourist precinct, it’s pretty poor.

I’m sure the wa­ter­ing sys­tems are still in place. and we’re not on wa­ter re­stric­tions so there’s no ex­cuse.
