A day of politicians on the Northern Rivers (again)

THE Northern Rivers will once again be visited by a number of politicians ahead of the looming federal elections.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has already called for a double-dissolution election in July, and it's looking more-and-more likely to happen.

The ministers visiting today include:

  • Shadow Minister for the Environment, Climate Change & Water Mark Butler, attending Q&As at the Channon -10am, Kyogle - 1pm and Lismore - 5.30pm. Topics up for discussion include Labor's 50% renewables policy, the Baird Government's anti-protest laws and keeping the Northern Rivers CSG free.
  • State Minister for Local Government Paul Toole will present funding to the Richmond River Gun Club this morning.
  • Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan will make a $3 million announcement to fix road Black Spots across the region at 10am, at the intersection of Union and Casino streets in South Lismore.
