You may have seen the large notice on pages 28-29 of this week’s Sentinel Times with information about the Phillip Island Nature Park Open Day on 27 March.

Many interesting activities have been organised. Of particular interest to Watershed members are the Shearwaters at Sunset event at 6.30pm and the two sessions about Little Penguins at Sea (11am and 4pm). The shearwaters will shortly be departing on their annual migration and the lights and structures of the desalination plant are particularly hazardous for young birds.

It should also be interesting to find out about where penguins are feeding in relation to the desal.

Dear Watershed Supporters

As you all well know, we have endured during these past four years a pig-headed cover-up Government that would not consult, explain, listen, engage, and thankfully they are now gone. We have been vindicated.

Here’s hoping the new Government brings a fresh approach to water, a sustainable water future.

There are published signs of change.

Premier Ted Bailleu on Stateline before the election, and the wider media afterward, has undertaken to release the full desal contract if legally allowed, and to examine if the project can be scaled back which would bring cost savings, environmental savings, and an opportunity for other water options to be advanced in the future.

I welcome too the appointment of Peter Walsh as the Minister in charge of water Statewide, a positive step away from factionalised city/country water policy and projects.

Thankyou to everyone who has helped bring this change about, and we look forward to a new era of politics with prospect of new water beginnings.

best wishes everyone for a merry Christmas, a happy New Year, and the end of a long drought in respect both of rainfall and inept Government.

Stephen Cannon

This website and rally have come to our attention, and we note that mention is made of the desalination plant among a number of controversial issues and projects within our State.

Your Committee did not endorse this reference, and accordingly we are not a sponsor of the rally or website in any way, or affiliated with all the interest groups cited.

As for the political sentiments expressed, we will leave everyone to make their own decision about how to vote on 27th November, and about whether to participate in the rally.

We have many times made note of the Policy misrepresentation by this Government leading to the last election, and their failure to answer our questions or explain their desal backflip, and that speaks for itself.

best wishes and we do hope you think carefully and make your vote count on 27th November, it seems the Government have not been listening to us this past 3 years.

Stephen Cannon on behalf of the Watershed Committee.

“Turning Off The Tap”

It never rains, it only pours
When contractors get their money-grubbing paws
On the common wealth of this once-great state
Oh, will the wastage never abate?
Not as long as John Dubbya & Company
Continue to have the outrageous effrontery
To take our taxes and haemorrhage them to
The greedy, never-sated few.

They can spot his type a mile away:
The type happy to pay and pay and pay
And say: “Look here, we’re taking action!”
Till their governments’ finances end up in traction.
And reluctantly, to stop further harm
The poor old voters hand over the farm
To people who impose economic rationalism
With all the subtlety of fascism.

There’s only one way to stop the drip:
Take the captain and crew of this ship
Truss them up with a length of cord
And throw the whole lot overboard.
