Liberals' Forest Farce

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

Legislation to allow logging in some of the most high conservation value, carbon rich forests on the planet was tabled in State Parliament today. 

The Bill is a recipe for destruction, conflict and lost economic opportunity as the Liberals try to force Tasmania in the opposite direction of where its future lies.  It was on this basis that the Greens’ MPs took the highly unusual move of voting against the Bill on its first reading. 

Liberals Refuse to Rule Out Logging in Wielangta Tourist Drive

Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens Tourism spokesperson

The Hodgman Government's plans to extend the Great Eastern Drive by upgrading Wielangta Road are threatened by their own political agenda. 

Resources Minister, Guy Barnett's, commitment in Greens' Private Members time that the Liberals will stand by their plan to log the same forest is proof that their political point scoring trumps good sense.
