  • My adjournment matter this evening is for the Minister for Public Transport. It concerns the platform interchange at Richmond station. This morning on my way in on the Sandringham line I had to change at Richmond station, as always, because the Sandringham line does not go through the loop and almost three-quarters of the people on the train get off and look for a loop train.
  • Greens health spokesperson Colleen Hartland speaks in favour of a supervised injecting centre in the Victorian Parliament, as MPs debate a private member's bill.
  • Last Wednesday I was pleased to attend a forum hosted by the Bayside Climate Action Group, which has just celebrated 10 years of advocacy for action on climate change. Speakers at the sold-out forum included Alison Rowe, CEO of the Moreland Energy Foundation and chair of the Future Business Council, and Laura Sykes, schools program coordinator of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition.
  • My question is for the Minister for Training and Skills. I have been contacted by a student at Sage Institute of Education who has been studying for a diploma of education and care, whose course is due to finish on 28 February and who has completed placements outside the institute. As you would know, Minister, the administrator has been appointed for Sage Institute, which runs courses in aged care, education, massage, child care and fitness. My constituent is concerned that if she is unable to complete her course, the fees that she has paid will have been wasted and she will have no qualification to show for the year that she has spent studying.

  • Has the Minister requested that VicForests assess the damage to tourism and Leadbeater’s possum habitat by logging Blue Vein coupe, which is adjacent to the 350 year old, 76 metre high, 15.7 metre girth Ada tree, which, as one of the largest living things in the world, is a major tourist attraction in the Yarra Ranges and Baw Baw?
  • It is so very disappointing that on 3 January the government announced that a full, 12-week, duck shooting season will go ahead this year with no reduction in bag limits and no restrictions on so-called game species that can be shot, except to exclude the blue-winged shoveler due to 'continued low numbers'.
  • The Victorian Greens are proud to submit this motion today. Electric propulsion is arguably the greatest innovation in automobiles since the mass manufacture of the Model T Ford, and now is the time to explore how the State Government should be shepherding a transition of Victoria’s vehicle fleet from fossil fuels to electric. There have been major issues with the dependence on internal combustion engines for powering vehicles. The damage done to human health, the environment, and the amenity of our cities by internal combustion engines in automobiles has been huge.
