It was also lovely to catch up with Derryn Hinch in Canberra. He was very appreciative of the 10km walk I organised in Hervey Bay to raise awareness for his national sex offender register. He offered to come and speak at Parliament House on medical cannabis oil the following day at the Medical Cannabis Rally at Parliament House I attended with Jannean Dean who gave an excellent speech. Derryn Hinch also spoke to the crowd gathered saying ‘Free the Weed’!
I’m also pictured here with the new Federal Health & Sport Minster Greg Hunt who was the Environmental Minister when I had the Fraser Island Marathon debacle!
I saw the ceremony for the House of Representatives for their first sitting in Parliament for the 2017. Initial discussion was in relation to Centerlink, 4,000 (20%) wrong fines a month they are continuing to send out and not doing anything about it. Then I went over to watch the Senate saw Wong, Hansen, Xenophon, Hinch, Bernardi, etc.
We also rejoiced in the amazing news that the Fraser Coast Regional Council CEO Lisa Desmond had finally been dismissed by the Council and were excited for a better future!!
“Thankyou Jeanette for all your support. Here’s to an exciting fresh start with respect to the people of the Fraser Coast. Thank you everyone for standing strong, fighting hard and supporting us to bring accountability and transparency to our region.” – Jannean Dean
