On the Rugnut show today, Mayor Schier has shown the gloves are off and the wackjobs are being called out.
One of the Mackenzie regular hillbilly callers pushed Mayor Schier about the continued demand that a "ratepayers-only" referendum be called. Never mind that even renters are "ratepayers", and that excluding a class of voters is clear discrimination and violation of the constitution.
The Mayor finally made it clear - NO REFERENDUM will be considered by council on the new theater and cultural precinct. No referendum has ever been held on big projects in Cairns, and as many believe it is a deriliction of duty to call a referendum on such a matter.
Council is paid to lead the community forward. Sadly the hillbillies want to stay in the past. And their manipulation by Mackenzie on behalf of the developers who are lusting after the waterfront land for their own fat pockets is now crystal clear.
