• A petition to call for the immediate resignation of Christopher Pyne
    Over recent years, the Australian Parliament's integrity has been called into question on multiple occasions because of the way that politicians behave during parliamentary sessions. It has come to a stage where Parliamentary sessions should not receive even a PG rating for telecasting. Politicians should be the highest form of role-models with the highest level of public accountability. They represent the Australian people at home and internationally. With this in mind, the incident wherein Christopher Pyne used derogatory and violent language in a publicly televised Parliamentary session is absolutely intolerable. With this petition, we intend to call for Pynes resignation, and Tony Abbot's support for said resignation-- as Party Leader and Prime Minister-- in the interests of reinstating some public confidence in political accountability. Had a teacher in an Australian school used such offensive language they would be issued a severe reprimand. Pyne, as Education Minister, should receive no less. We the undersigned strongly believe that Christopher Pyne has demonstrated that he is not a fit representative of the Australian people and as such should be held accountable. His behaviour embarrasses Australia as a nation, and Tony Abbot should call for Pyne's resignation if he does not willingly volunteer it.

  • No Woolworths in Bermagui
    Bermagui is a ambiant little sleepy seaside village, our population is under 2000 and, we have small local family businesses here and a Foodworks, we don't need any more supermarkets, Our existing businesses find it hard to survive during the off season as it is. Having a Woolworths in town would destroy them, and the whole look of our town. The rate payers will be paying for all the infrastructure needed to bring their trucks in and widen the roads. Why would we want them to come into our village and kill our local businesses?

  • Gold Coast Cruise Terminal = Cruel Hoax
    1. Because the State Government and Councillors have allowed Tate to high jack the role of Mayor to work up this project without Councillor approval. This is in breach of Section 12 of the Local Government Act. 2. Because the Benefits as touted by ASF are a hoax by reference to other projects they have done worldwide like this. 3. Because the environmental costs, social costs of the public space giveaway, and the economic costs are permanent and irreversible .

  • Reduce retirement age to 65 NOT increase to 70!
    It gives younger people more options to work and earn. I think by the time you have worked to 60 you have contributed sufficiently to society and you should have the option of retirement! If you want to continue working you should have the option. Let's bring the retirement age back to 65 and ideally it should be reduced to 60. Please don't let any government whittle away at Australia's benefits anymore.

  • Mail Service to East Jindabyne, Tyrolean & Kalkite
    The area of East Jindabyne, Tyrolean & Kalkite continues to grow and there are more permanent residents than when the last Australia Post survey was done. I contacted Aust Post and they were unable to give me a date when the last survey was done or statistics. They recommended the residents of East Jindabyne and surrounds submit a petition. If you are a resident of East Jindabyne, Tyrolean & Kalkite you either have to go to the East Jindabyne service station to collect your mail or pay for a post office box in Jindabyne. Even though this option is offered at a reduced rate there would be no cost if we had our mail delivered. To get a mail service to our area we will have to have a high percentage of residents from all three areas requiring this service.

  • reopen 74 vacant beds at Glenmead Village Aged Care Facility
    There are presently 72 patients housed in hospitals around the region awaiting placement in an aged care facility. This does not take into account the fact that there are many people barely able to cope in their own homes. THis not only crowds the hospitals it is not a suitable place for aged people to live and it will only get worse as our aged population increases.

  • Let Ari Illingworth and her mother, Eunsil Park, stay in Australia
    Eunsil has been living in Australia, working to support her daughter, paying taxes and contributing to her community. I believe she is a model citizen and to force this mother and child to leave Australia and return to a country where she has no work or home will have devastating consequences to all concerned. It is inconceivable that as a result of a relationship breakdown a family must endure more heartbreak and expulsion from Australia. Ari is an Australian Citizen and you Mr Morrison, as Immigration Minister, must have a duty of care to ensure that this 4 year old child remains safe, secure and surrounded by the family she knows and loves.

  • Extend the proposed light rail beyond Hobart and MONA
    The Brighton and Kingborough Municipal Councils are two of the fastest growing residential areas in the state and both lie within 30 kilometres of the Hobart CBD, with existing rail infrastructure already running from Bridgewater to Hobart. Given that this rail infrastructure already exists, it only makes sense to use this for passenger rail. It will ease stress on the Brooker Highway and Main Road running through Hobart's northern suburbs, parking space and congestion in Hobart's City Centre will be relieved, and stress on the Southern Outlet between Kingston and Hobart will also ease. Also, given that a light rail vehicle will run on electricity, Aurora and Transend will have an additional main client to supply electricity to and they can afford to lower the unit price of electricity to residents, especially those on lower incomes. Tasmania is also a self-sufficient supplier of hydroelectricity, a clean and renewable energy resource, that can reduce commuter dependence on petroleum-powered buses and cars. An extended light rail system is a good idea for safer and cleaner transport, the environment and commuters on lower and higher incomes.

  • Pedestrian crossing at the Miller St-Devon St intersection
    To provide a safe place to cross Miller Street for children attending Bell Primary School and for children and adults accessing the Route 112 tram stop no 36. The Bracken Ave Reserve is a lovely track which more families with young children would use if there was a crossing.
