If the past six years of a coalition Liberal National parties (LNP) government has taught us anything, it has taught us that it is time for change in the Page electorate.
Kevin Hogan MP and his party have failed to represent the Northern Rivers on climate policy.
Since 2013 the coalition has cut the Australian Renewable Energy Agency by $500 million; fully supported the Adani coal mine and in 2016 actually censored a UN climate-change/world-heritage sites report demanding the authors remove any reference to Australian threatened sites.
Do we need to see more?
One in three jobs in Australia’s renewable energy sector and over 450 CSIRO jobs of 4,832 positions are gone. Greenhouse gas emissions have risen for four straight years yet the LNP falsely claim emissions are going down.
Let’s turn them out in Page on May 18... for futures of our children and grandchildren.
