LEICHHARDT MP Warren Entsch has thrown his support behind Cook MP David Kempton in slamming The Wilderness Society’s claims of misrepresentation at the Cape York Forum.
“I was there and there is no doubt that The Wilderness Society representatives did participate in the forum,” Mr Entsch said today.
“TWS may not have liked the fact, but it was the first time in many years that I have seen an audience of predominantly Cape York residents actually discussing the future of Cape York.
“Very importantly, the group included the overwhelming majority of the elected mayors of Cape York’s indigenous communities.
“Any suggestion to the contrary that indigenous interests were not consulted yet again highlights the dishonesty of The Wilderness Society and their campaign.”
