Murray Darling Basin Plan
13 February 2018
South Australian Labor and Federal Labor’s moves to undermine the Murray Darling Basin Plan threaten to squeeze the life from our Basin communities.
There’s no question some Basin communities are at breaking point. We’ve endured a decade of uncertainty and we’ve lost vast amounts of water from parts of northern Victoria.
This must be about people, not politics. The future of our Basin irrigators, communities and the environment is at stake.
Victoria’s Labor senators have been completely silent, despite holding the future of northern Victorian communities and irrigators in their hands.
Lisa Neville has declared where she stands. The key to this decision now lies in the hands of Bill Shorten and Federal Labor.
