I can’t believe this is an issue: How can people be getting upset about the change of date? First Nations people are here and still suffering because of that day.
We have a chance to show we care; let’s change the date all over this amazing country. A friend of mine suggested Federation Day as a day of celebration, when Australia became an independent nation – on 1 January 1901 we became a Commonwealth. Now there’s a day to celebrate.
