Election fear mongering over fracking?

John Buxton, Bundalaguah


I NOTE a trailer billboard around town with a sign reading ‘No fracking, vote Labor’.

Given it has the candidate’s photo, I assume it is with his endorsement.

In Victoria, we have historically had 23 fracking licences approved — all under Labor.

We have also had 73 exploration licences approved — all under Labor.

None have been granted under the Liberal Nationals Coalition, and in fact it introduced the ban on fracking on coming to government in 2010, and continues to support it.

So, what is this all about?

Fear mongering to gain votes?
