Time for Labor to Step Up

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader

As disappointing as Lara Alexander and John Tucker's deal with the Premier is, the one thing it does deliver is an opportunity for the Parliament to vote on the stadium. 

Given the new so-called independents have traded away much of the power they would otherwise have had, the Project of State Significance Process may be the best opportunity Parliament has to sink the Macquarie Point Stadium in the public interest. 

With Parliament's role now crucial, it's time for Labor leader Rebecca White to step up. If she's serious about her opposition to the stadium, there's no reason she can't today make a commitment that Labor will not vote in support of this project in Parliament. 

If the Opposition Leader can't do that, perhaps Labor MPs should start peeling their "No Stadium" stickers off their cars.
