Comment on Art gallery: Door slammed on Desert Park by Local1.

What an absolute joke.
You say preferred location, but the last count shows that that location was favored by only 40% of respondents, and never proposed as a preferred site by the steering committee.
Now you are seeking leaders not based on ability or experience or leadership, but first and foremost by the color of their skin?
In the rush to bow down to the PC gods, this minister, and her government, have fallen flat on their face on this issue.
This decision and location will greatly affect the amenity of the town, and take away one of the major sporting and social facilities this town has.
Once the grass has been ripped up, and the grandstands give a view over nothing, it will be a fait accompli.
We will have a massive white elephant sitting where one of our best sporting venues used to be, for what?
A decision that affects Alice Springs made by people who are not local and have no intention of actually listening to the people.
A poor decision made worse by the fact that the local people who know why it is the wrong spot are completely ignored. Disgusting.

Agreed Evelyn, but some of these are. WHS laws have failed this person.
Let’s hope she takes it to Worksafe NT, as there are certainly some breaches here.
Every workplace needs a health and safety rep.

Wow, so many nasty and uninformed comments here. Even Joel Flemming, one of the most knowledgable people we have has said that Remote 4WD training should be a part of any worker’s training before they go remote.
Ultimately it is the bosses’ responsibility to assess the hazard and manage the risk, and yes, the worker has the right to refuse unsafe work.
Unfortunately it does not always happen in the real world especially the NT, and workers are often victimised when exercising their rights, especially as there has been a substantial review into OHS in the Territory recently.

She’s not the only one Erwin, you would be amazed at some organisations that do exactly the same thing, except they do have a satellite phone.

Karen: It is simply using a noun verses an adjective, either is accpeptable, neither is disrespectful. Are there not more important things to worry about?


Government backflip leaves Centre’s youth worst off
Evelyne, you have absolutely nailed it. Sadly the pandering virtue signallers that Matthew refers to will protect them from that and guarantee their spiral into a life of incarceration.
