  • Morrison: Stop MPs spreading dangerous misinformation
    It's finally happened! Craig Kelly MP has been formally called out by the Prime Minister for spreading dangerous misinformation about coronavirus. After a 30-minute scolding on 3/2/21, Kelly conceded: "I had a meeting with the prime minister... I agreed to support the government's vaccine rollout which has been endorsed by medical experts. I believe that the spread of misinformation can damage the success of our public health response during the pandemic". On top of that, Kelly could soon be out of a job — with reports that Morrison is now unlikely to save Kelly from a preselection threat ahead of the next federal election! Here's how Emilie's feeling: "This is such great news! Craig Kelly finally being pulled into line sends a message to healthcare workers like me that we matter. A big thank you to everyone who supported my petition. I was blown away by the support. And it worked!"

  • Tugun Community Against GCCC Draft City Plan Increased Development Heights Proposed for Tugun Area
