Spring is definitely 'in the air' which will be a treat for locals and visitors during the August/September school holidays. After a warmer than normal winter which saw people swimming through June/July, we can anticipate a bumper spring tourism season to further our reputation as the No. 1 Holiday Destination.
The Shadow Minister for Energy has identified that under Labor since 2015, the wholesale cost of energy 'has risen 70%' with the Palaszczuk Government gouging excessive dividends from electricity generators to fund fiscal shortfalls in other budgetary areas. It is no wonder small business is suffering under this current Government with exorbitant power prices eating away at slim profit bottom-lines for most businesses.
Cruise Ship Terminal
The ASF Casino / Cruise Ship Terminal (CST) proposal has folded under the Palaszczuk Government but Mayor Tom Tate still has the ocean side cruise ship terminal alternative to follow through on as a workable proposal. We await Gold Coast Council deliberations on the business case to make a Cruise Ship Terminal stack up but I am sure most Gold Coasters would like to see a CST built to take advantage of the booming cruising industry.Commonwealth Games Transport
