The policies of T4T Tasmania …

I thought I might do a quick summary of some of our policies …

Mental Health … we would remove mental health from the surgical and medical of the RHH and build a purpose built facility for mental health patients. These patients have different needs to surgical and medical patients, and we believe the appropriate atmosphere contributes greatly to the recovery of these patients.

Foreign ownership of Tasmanian land … We are totally committed to any foreign entity, corporation or Government from ever owning Tasmanian land, and we will work diligently to return any land owned by foreign entities to Tasmanian hands….if you sell the farm off, we will become tenants in our own land, this MUST stop …

 Fish Farma  … T4T is calling for a cessation of any further fish farm leases and we are calling for a public inquiry into the practices, procedures and protocols of the industry.

Mt Wellington cable car … if the will of the people is to have a cable car we will support it, but not in its current format. We have had a meeting with the MWCC and it would seem that it’s their way or no way. We believe we have a viable option for the cable car, on the 150 acres of land that the Hobart City Council already owns in Glenorchy. We believe that we can achieve much more in adventure tourism (mountain bikes, slides, zip lines, bushwalks etc ) with our proposal.

 Trains  … T4T is fully committed to rebuilding and increasing the rail network in Tasmania to include passenger, freight and tourist/heritage usage, We believe that this will form the backbone of our policies for the next 3 to 5 decades and create employment for both the private and Government sectors.

Macquarie Point … we believe that Macquarie Point should be turned into a transport hub to service trains, trams and buses. This will be of benefit to not just Hobart but to all Tasmanians and tourists alike. Hobart needs and deserves a decent public transport system, and we intend to build it.

Inner City Trams … inner city trams will be introduced to service Sandy Bay/ Taroona, South Hobart and the Brewery, West Hobart and North Hobart out to John Turnbull Oval in Lenah Valley. It is from here we would run a shuttle to connect with the cable car.

It would be nice if the Tasmanian media actually paid an interest in us, we are not a “fly by night” group, rather we are Tasmanian people who are not willing to let politics divide us anymore. Tasmanian people have the answers to our problems, we just have to stick together to make it work.

We know that to be Tasmanian means many things, and that to be a good smart thinking Tasmanians we need to be a little bit of Liberal (the business side), a little bit of Labor (the Socialist side), and a little bit of Green (to look after our land) in all of us, what we don’t need is to be a divide people by politics …

    Well that’s a start, but the policies fail to address the major issues facing Tas, like the insane drive for population growth, establishing clean 21st century industry, climate change tactics and the removal of multinationals and monopolies from our shores. Proper education, the legal system and law enforcement and farming industry that will take us forward and not damage the environment.

    The banning of all pesticides and chemicals from our lands, and decentralising electrical energy with local grids supported by everyone having solar and personal storage would allow for extremely low cost energy for everyone, and provide cheap hydro energy for safe, efficient industry, and for major population areas.

    Decentralisation of health care would remove the strain on the RHH, and in the end save millions a year. The present approach is unworkable and will never cater for the growing health problems, so we have to use preventive and remedial health approaches. That would free up major hospitals so they can cope, and it would give the best outcomes for traumatic and genetic problems.

      We are not so up ourselves to say that we have all the answers right now, but we believe that the Tasmanian people do … and yes, you are absolutely right in what you are saying … we would like to see fluoride removed from our drinking water. So please, become a member, lend your voice and thoughts. Together as Tasmanians we know we have the knowledge, skills and acumen to achieve the best outcome for Tasmania and its people. We are you, never forget that. We Can, We Will.
