If this does become the official Labor plan, we are left with a Devil's
Alternative: A monstous, lumbering pier and associated infrastructure
cutting right through the the Treatment Plant, or the potential
eco-disaster to Western Port if the Liberal's Hastings Plan is accepted.
Either way the murky world of big business and "progress" will cut a
swathe of destruction through internationally significant environments.
I shudder at the thought of massive oil tankers steaming past the
penguins, seals and shearwaters of Phillip Island, emptying their tanks
onto the pristine, fragile ecosystem of French Island ... yet the Point
Wilson idea is equally hatched from insanity. This whole idea seems
fraught with disaster, hopefully it will be elsewhere, somewhere with a
deepwater port and lesser environmental significance.
