Reader contributions

Today, readers question who is in charge of tourism advertising, the need to axe century-old trees, and why councils should be involved in addressing domestic violence issues.

Commenting on the story: ‘Old Mate’ ad not our responsibility: Tourism Dept boss

The jury’s out ? No. The people who came up with this negative and depressing ad are the ones who should be out.

Sure, people may be talking about it (or laughing), but the overwhelming feel of the ad is depressing and negative. Scrap it.

Interesting to see all the usual bureaucratic ducking and weaving, Thought the Marshall Govt would have higher standards of accountability than this. Grant Petras.

Well, ‘where the bloody hell are you?’ whoever is responsible for the Old Mate disaster. – Pamela Attwood

Commenting on the story:Retaining historic North Tce trees impossible: Lot 14 landscaper

Perhaps we should be “giving the axe” to the landscape designer, rather than to the trees, if they think that retaining the trees is impossible? – Richard Tapp

Commenting on the story: Call for greater domestic violence awareness at city council 

The ACC is seeking to infiltrate into the lives of their workforce. Enough agencies already exist to handle DV.

What’s next on the ACC’s agenda; handing out speeding fines and arrest warrants? Mike Lesiw
