Comment on LETTER: Should we dam the Todd? by Dan.

We already have several dams in the Todd – one at Schwartz Crescent, one on Undoolya Rd, Taffy Pick crossing, and immediately south of the Gap. Next time you drive across a causeway have a look at the levels of the river bed on either side of the road. I reckon if we lowered the causeways to the level of the riverbed on the south side, the river would push that sand out through the Gap and deepen the river naturally. A deeper river bed has got to be good for flood mitigation. Seems simple to me.

Back to the future with Warren Snowdon
Warren, there’s a clear ongoing demand for gas extraction from whom? For what?
Australia is the largest exporter of gas in the world so we clearly don’t have a shortage.
Who’s demanding we endanger our future? Why are you supporting this dangerous industry.


Price family were sole complainants against Cocking & Satour 
Not the kind of person we want representing us in Canberra.


A change in Lingiari? History holds some clues.
A vote for Labor is a vote for fracking, climate change and poisoned water.
Same unfortunately with CLP. Not a lot of choice in the NT.


Nationals in Canberra run Country Liberals media
So a vote for Snowdon is a vote for fracking, a vote to endanger our water supply and a vote for global warming.
A vote for the CLP is the same thing but they will never change. Labor might if they lose votes and don’t pick up the preferences.
They will definitely be chasing those votes / preferences next time.
Tell Wazza he won’t get my vote or preferences unless he ànd his party change their line on fracking.


Jacinta Price spits dummy
The sad thing about all this is that the way our system stands at the moment your vote is going to go to either the CLP or Labor.
The CLP is abhorrent but Labor is so crap that I feel I will have to put them below CLP in the hope that they will come to their senses at the next election.
One Territory or Greens then the cupla complete nut jobs, then CLP then Labor last.
I won’t be voting for Jacinta just more strongly against Labor and their support of fracking etc.
