ACT Labor Land Deal Scandal

The ACT Labor-Green Government paid $3.9 million to the Tradies Club for a building housing the CFMEU HQ, then rented back the building to the Tradies for $1 per year. In a recent scathing report by the ACT Auditor-General, it was found that the ACT government “relinquished considerable financial value to the Tradies”. The Auditor-General also said, “there is also a high risk that the Directorate sold Block 30 Section 34 to the Tradies in breach of the Planning and Development Act 2007.”

In the report it was estimated that up to $2.65 million of ACT taxpayer money was relinquished to the Tradies group.

Do you think these kinds of preferential deals are fair? Let us know.

Alcohol at the Multicultural Festival

The ACT Government has disallowed community stalls from serving alcohol at the 2018 National Multicultural Festival in Canberra. For decades, foreign beers and other drinks have been a feature of the Festival. Not only will this decision impact on the enjoyment of many attendees, it will also take away a major source of fundraising for dozens of migrant community groups.

Send a message to the Government that they’ve gone too far and the right for community groups to sell alcohol at the Festival should be restored.
