Letter to the Editor: Proposed BORR route affecting heritage sites, wildlife

It is interesting to see the double standards that apply in the State of Western Australia.

Rio Tinto although having approval (from a former State Government) blows up a cave that is an Aboriginal site of significance and the three top executives lose their jobs.

The Labor Government is appalled at this destruction. This somewhat mystifies me.

I support our premier and our State Government, I think Mark and his government have done an awesome job with the pandemic and I have fully supported him.

I also support their efforts to get our state back to good economic times.

However, this same government, who has the people at heart and supposedly values our Indigenous heritage, has decided to drive the Bunbury Outer Ring Road through the Gelorup wetlands, where significant Aboriginal heritage is located and rare wildlife species - along with trees of significant heritage - all exist, not to mention the massive impact of the home owners located here.

These things can never be replaced once bulldozed, but that in the governments eye is a rational decision.

May God help all the things that will be destroyed because the government will not.
