Centenary of National Parks Highlights Failures of Minister

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader and Parks spokesperson

On this weekend's centenary of national parks, Parks Minister, Matthew Groom, should admit Tasmania's protected areas are under unprecedented threat as a result of Liberal policies.

Mr Groom sure has a hide, trumpeting the State's national parks at the same time as his government is opening them up to far greater commercial exploitation.

Bushfire Inquiry A Whitewash

Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Fire spokesperson

The Bushfire Inquiry findings paint over the devastation of the summer bushfires in the World Heritage Area. It's as though they never existed.

Not one single recommendation in the Committee's report calls to review procedures or respond to climate change. These were two of the key reasons for submitting a dissenting report. *

Because of the Committee's membership, it was always going to be a whitewash but the denial around the need to change our response to bushfire management is mind-boggling.
