Fast Buck$, Coorabell
When I read about Council’s ‘Sustainable Visitation Strategy’ and Council’s press release accompanying it, I didn’t know whether to larf or barf.
‘The aim… is to support a visitor economy that cares for and respects local resident, protects the natural environment, celebrates cultural diversity, and shares local values’. There we have it, Council’s media unit mercilessly and shamelessly cranking out a parallel reality for those of us who still believe in Santa Claus.
I only wish here to address the claim of ‘diversity’. I probably spend more time in the front foyer of the Council building than most people do and I’ve yet to see a wheelchair, or an Asian, or brown face among the staff members coming and going.
