Another nail in the coffin for the environment?

Snorkling

Dr Kim Hames has been sacked as Minister for Tourism.  Barnett will take over until he finds a replacement. See this article in the West today

Dr Hames was an advocate for nature based tourism. What’s a bet we wont be hearing much of this sort of talk from Barnett or the next Tourism Minister going forward (see article Why WA is not on the tourist map)?

Beautiful natural locations are prime real estate to Barnett, to be sold off to private interests, to dig out for private canal housing estates and big hard edged concrete developments.
