Tas Population Shrinking Thanks To Disastrous Labor-Green Experiment

Tasmania needs a strong, majority Hodgman Liberal Government to give the State the confidence and direction needed to grow and prosper.

Unfortunately, the disastrous Labor-Green experiment is having a devastating impact on Tasmania, according to Deputy Opposition Leader Jeremy Rockliff.

“ABS figures released today show Tasmania’s population is shrinking for the first time in over ten years.” Mr. Rockliff said.

“When our Government is shutting down the forestry industry, threatening to derail the mining industry and dominated by the anti-everything Greens then it’s no wonder people are forced to leave.”

“We simply cannot afford this job destroying, economy wrecking Labor-Green Government. Only the Liberals have a clear plan to grow our economy, create jobs and tackle the cost of living, which will encourage people to move to Tasmania, and Tasmanians to stay where they are.” Mr. Rockliff said.
