Candidates for the Bass Electorate in the local paper. Make your vote count. If the Liberal Government are re-elected they will begin the development at Westernport.  We hope you will choose an alternative.  To find out who is running in your electorate visit ABC Victoria Votes and follow the links to find your area.

The Great Debate - Hastings Community Hub

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.
