Last night a moderated debate took place between Ports Minister David Hodgett and Shadow Ports Minister Natalie Hutchins at the Hastings Community Hub. What has become clear is the lack of transparency on the part of government on the entire development. We need to start asking more questions. The dredging issue is of main concern. Here are some links to the video of the discussion for those who could not make it. Thank you to the Westernport & Peninsula Protection Council Inc for providing the videos. Westernport is NOT a natural deep water port. The dredging required will significantly effect the natural environment.
