One Year After Devastating Fires, Sluggish Response from Hodgman Government

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Parks spokesperson

Today marks the grim one year anniversary of bushfires that threatened Tasmanian communities and caused irreparable damage to ancient wilderness landscapes, yet the Hodgman Liberal Government continues to starve the Parks and Wildlife Service of the funds it needs to undertake effective fire management.

Premier Failing on Macquarie Island Travesty

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader

While his Federal Liberal colleagues first slashed jobs at the CSIRO in Hobart, the Premier was reduced to wringing his hands and expressing his disappointment.

Now, the Federal Liberals have forced the closure of the Australian Antarctic Division base on Macquarie Island, ending 68 years of Australian research on Macquarie Island, and the Premier is again 'disappointed'.

Really, Premier?  Is that the best you can do?
