The best news that our region's environment has received for many years was the 
scrapping of the amazingily stupid proposed Traveston Dam on the Mary River in 
SEQ. Peter Garrett, the Federal Environment Minister knocked it back on 
environmental grounds today at lunchtime. The main rteasons given were that the 
dam would threaten the endangered Lungfish and Mary River Turtle. It is good to 
see a Labour federal minister over-ride a Labour State Government......might 
even listen to an Oils album tonight!
