Comment on National Aboriginal art gallery: The horse and the cart by Ray.

Hardly a make or break item for the town. It might be a welcome addition, but if it is not built, the town will certainly not go broke.
Panorama Guth was a fascinating tourist destination, and displayed a massive range of Aboriginal artifacts.
Tourists flocked to it, but it was not the reason they came here. The proposed art gallery (which should be a cultural centre featuring Aboriginal art), will never be a reason people will come here, but it may encourage them to stay an extra day or two.
I have had many friends come here over the years and many of them say they wish they had booked for longer as they had no idea how much there was to see and do.
As far as the original topic goes, humbugging, youth crime, assaults and break ins are a far greater make or break subject than any art gallery will be. Get that under control and reap the benefits.

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.

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?

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.
