Quotes

"The State Development Area has been dropped on us and now they've called for submissions about it."
"The company wants to gain the trust of the public, by showing the company is not just out for its own profits, but is out to help Australia as well."
"The offsets package is meant to be a measure of last resort if it’s not possible to avoid damage. The quantum of that should be determined by the environmental impact, you shouldn’t be able to haggle the amount down."
