  • Public transport users neglected again

    Greens transport spokesperson Samantha Dunn says government promises of new trains and trams are off in the never-never and rely on this government being re-elected. 

     'Public transport users will receive next to nothing in tomorrow's budget,' Ms Dunn said. 

     'Dangerously overloaded trams are here to stay under the Andrews Government, who are offering little to boost capacity in this term of government. 

  • Vicforests off the hook, again

    Victorian Greens spokesperson for forests Samantha Dunn MP says it is no surprise that Vicforests are off the hook for again destroying protected habit.

    "Any direct evidence of illegal logging on the Errinundra Plateau has most likely already gone to the pulp mill.  It’s no wonder the Minister for the Environment says the evidence is inconclusive,” Ms Dunn said.

    "The problem comes from Vicforests doing the habitat assessments, while collecting the profits from logging as well. 

    "There's a clear conflict of interest. It’s putting the fox in charge of the hen house.

  • Mine Fire Inquiry needs to go further

    The Greens are calling for the reopened Mine Fire Inquiry to canvass mine rehabilitation, opportunities for the community post-coal, and allow for witnesses to speak anonymously.

    "The terrible disaster of the 2014 Mine Fire highlights the need to close down coal, and find alternative industries for the Latrobe Valley" said Ellen Sandell, Greens spokesperson for Energy.

    "Any inquiry must also look seriously at how we rehabilitate the mine to make it safe, decommission the plants and create new industries for when coal inevitably closes.
