An interesting exchange

"Senator O'BRIEN---Were the community to be consulted, what level of resistance do you believe exists in the communities around the Clarence River to the proposal to dam the upper Clarence?
Mr. Dodd---At a rough guess, I would say about 90 per cent of the people in communities in the Clarence Valley would be against any damming and diversion proposals."
[Senator O'Brien, Senate Rural Regional Affairs and Transport standing committee member, and Brian Dodd, Chair of Clarence Landcare Inc., in Inquiry into options for additional water supplies for south-east Queensland - Traveston Dam,transcript,proof issue,Monday 4 June 2007,p.71]

I'm getting the general impression that the reason the Clarence Valley didn't know about this inquiry until it was almost over is because the Howard Government was well aware of how the valley feels about those damn dams.

Hands off our water! We don't need the Clarence to become an environmental disater.
