Speech on Pig N Whistle pokies application

A couple of days ago I gave this speech in Parliament about the proposal for 45 pokies at the Pig N Whistle, Indooroopilly. The pub is a few metres from my office, close to childcare, schools, churches, and is part of the Indro shopping centre, a family-friendly hub. Community sentiment is absolutely opposed to this. Like me, the vast majority of people want the Pig to remain a place where people can gather to socialise in a fun and safe environment, not fall victim to addictive, dangerous gaming machines. I'm hopeful that we can defeat this proposal. Stay tuned.

I spoke in support of the bill to address discrimination against transgender people. There is still work to be done but this is a step in the right direction.
