Dam su­perb in­vest­ments

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

WHEN will the pow­ers- that- be re­alise that by com­mit­ting money now to build the in­fra­struc­tures like Hell’s Gates and the se­cond stage of the Bur­dekin Dam, will pay big div­i­dends na­tion­ally?

We have a crime rate se­cond to none sim­ply be­cause the lack of em­ploy­ment is so high. Can’t they see we need these projects now, and not put off for some fu­ture date?

They should re­con­sider their de­ci­sion to spend bil­lions of dol­lars on sub­marines that are re­dun­dant be­fore they are built.

Without nu­clear power and nu­clear weapons, they are use­less. Spend the money on dams now, not to­mor­row.

Which­ever gov­ern­ment can prom­ise these nec­es­sary projects at this time, will be voted in at the next elec­tion.

Don’t worry about bal­anc­ing the bud­get, this will get Aus­tralia go­ing and save our chil­dren from a life of crime be­cause of no work, and also think of the hy­dro power for the North cre­ated by these projects. ROY BASNETT, An­nan­dale.
