Garland confirms Green credentials

So-called ‘independent’ candidate Craig Garland has confirmed his Green credentials this morning according to Liberal Senator Eric Abetz.

“This morning on ABC radio, Mr Garland confirmed he was opposed to fish farms,” Senator Abetz said.

“Fish farms employ hundreds of people in Braddon, including on the West Coast and in processing facilities on the North West Coast – hundreds of people who Mr Garland wants to see out of work.”

“Mr Garland also launched into what can only be described as a diatribe against the Liberal Party, while waxing lyrical about Labor.”

“Despite what he pretends, Mr Garland is just another anti-jobs Green, in lock-step with Labor, who would destroy jobs and try to purge our state back to the dark days of Green-Labor Government,” Senator Abetz concluded.
