"Christine is a champion of Tasmania, and of the planet, and can be absolutely proud of her legacy."
"She will be sorely missed, but will no doubt continue to play a crucial role in the fight for climate and social justice."
"I will be taking the time to talk to my family and others before I make a decision on whether to seek preselection."
"When I make a decision I will confirm it publicly, but out of respect for Party processes I will not be campaigning for preselection through the media."
NOTE: Mr McKim will not be commenting publicly further today.
