Western Australian State Government: Stop transport of live animal exports through City of Kwinana and its ports

The pristine and beautiful coastline of Kwinana and the Cockburn Sound should not be an automatic target as a dumping ground for industries not preferred elsewhere.
The comments by Wendy Duncan MLC, “I think you have to question the appropriateness of livestock trucks going through beautiful precincts like Fremantle.”, and that “Livestock smell. I think it is probably time to look at alternative places of export, and James Point . . . would be as good a place as any”, are not only offensive, but unacceptable.
Having existing heavy industry is not an acceptable excuse to automatically dump further industry deemed to unpleasant for others on the Kwinana doorstep.
Live animal transport is no more pleasant for the people of Kwinana than it is for those of Fremantle.
