Cadbury Job Losses

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens’ Leader

The loss of so many jobs and livelihoods at Cadbury is a devastating blow.

Loyal and dedicated workers have fallen victim to accelerating industry automation and State and Federal governments doing very little to mitigate the social and economic damage.

Transport Minister Kept in the Dark Over Rail Tracks Removal

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Member for Denison

In Question Time today it became clear that the decision to pull up rail tracks on the Macquarie Point site was made without the approval or knowledge of Infrastructure and Transport Minister, Rene Hidding.

Advocates of Hobart Light Rail are right to be concerned about the removal of rail tracks.  They should also be concerned that this took place without the Minister's knowledge.

Liberal Backbencher Sings to Donor's Tune

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens' Leader 

Liberal backbencher, Nic Street, is pointedly demonstrating what political influence decades of donations from the Federal Group to both major parties has bought.

Any time Federal needs political backIng, the Liberal and Labor parties rush to their defence.

Fresh from the Liberal Party's State Council meeting at a Federal owned casino, Mr Street is now having a crack at the Greens for pointing out how desperate the Farrell family must be to improve their image by holding a rock concert at their Sandy Bay pokies barn.

Labor in Step with Liberals on Cable Car

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Member for Denison

Labor Leader, Rebecca White, has confirmed her party supports the construction of a cable car on kunanyi/Mt Wellington.*

Again, the Liberals and Labor are together working against the environment.

Yesterday, Labor voted in support of the Liberals on fish farms, today it's the mountain.

Both parties want to scar Hobart's beautiful mountain back drop and compromise the natural values that set Tasmania apart from everywhere else.

Fragrance Group Skyscrapers On the Nose

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Member for Denison

The Fragrance Group's aggressive and obtrusive plans for Hobart have been dealt a near fatal blow.

Once the 'establishment' in the form of Simon Current and Greg Farrell are prepared to condemn a development, it's surely as good as finished.

The Greens rarely agree with Current or Farrell, but on this issue they are absolutely in tune with the prevailing public view.

The two skyscrapers planned for our city are grotesque and an insult to the character of Hobart.
