Shooters and Fishers Party MLC Robert Brown visits Lismore
SHOOTERS and Fishers Party MLC Robert Brown has announced during a visit to Lismore today that the Party would fight to restore property rights to property owners across regional NSW.
Mr Brown said farmers and property owners across the State were having their rights taken away from them.
"Australia used to be a country where property owners had rights on their own land, but ever so slowly we're losing that," Mr Brown said.
"Over burdening regulations around native vegetation, environmental zones and now the new biodiversity management strategies which are being rolled out dictate to property owners how they can manage their own land."
Mr Brown said the Shooters and Fishers Party would work to restore the rights of property owners.
"It was the Shooters and Fishers Party who put forward common sense changes to the Native Vegetation Act that were knocked back by the both the Government and Opposition," Mr Brown said.
"Farmers won't forget that betrayal."
Mr Brown said the Shooters and Fishers Party were confident of recording their strongest result ever in the NSW Election.
"Everywhere I go, I am speaking with people who have had a gut full of empty promises from both the major parties," he said.
"Former Premier Barry O'Farrell promised to kick-start regional NSW, but instead has kicked them in the teeth."
"Regional NSW can't afford another four years of being forgotten about."
Mr Brown said that the Shooters and Fishers Party were strongly opposed to the sale of poles and wires and would also campaign against forced council amalgamations.
