Tasmania Shadow Minister for Mining Adam Brooks
Tarkine Decision No Thanks To A Weak Green
Victor P Taffa
Deputy Premier Bryan Green deserves no credit for the decision to keep the vast majority of the so-called Tarkine open for development, Shadow Minister for Mining Adam Brooks said.
“North-West Tasmanians have noted Mr. Green’s failure to stand up for jobs and investment and will not soon forget his willingness to sell-out to the radical environmentalists.”
“Last year, Bryan Green voted with the Greens against my motion ruling out any further restrictions on mining in the so-called Tarkine.” Mr. Brooks said.
“Today’s decision is a victory for those who stood up for this region, and its future. Mr. Green is not one of those.” Mr. Brooks said.
