Sue Arnold, Australians for Animals Inc.
Having had first hand experience of the complete lack of any environmental credentials espoused by Benjamin Franklin from the National Party, I urge voters who care for our rapidly disappearing wildlife, degraded rivers and forests to ensure they don’t under any circumstances vote National.
Over many months Australians for Animals witnessed first hand the appalling destruction of a nationally significant koala population as part of the Ballina Pacific Highway Upgrade. Our efforts to get a meeting with National Party minister for roads, Melinda Pavey were ignored.
The absolute rejection of any responsible environmental policies by the Nationals is a major cause for concern at a time when we’re perilously close to losing not only the koala but entire ecosytems as a result of the damage wrought by the Nationals.
Leopards don’t change their spots no matter how hard they try to disguise them.
