Bendigo’s cats and bats are certain to distract | Bendigo Advertiser

News, latest news,

Carlo Sartori (Letters, 26/2) makes some rather alarming claims about Bendigo’s native bat population without providing any facts.

Neighborhood cats. I wonder how many anti-bat people have cats that allow them to roam wild and free to devastate native species and pollute the properties of their neighbors. I think the council could try to enforce a 24-hour curfew on cats and punish irresponsible cat owners to offset the cost of protecting our bats.

The tourism industry is doing its best

Without ideas, they can only say: “Let’s make another request.”

While it is clear that the completely reasonable lockdowns in Victoria had some impact on tourism, everyone (except the Liberal Party) knows that other factors had a huge impact.

The obvious thing is that overseas tourists are not allowed to enter Australia, which is the responsibility of the federal government. Second, all states and territories have banned travel in or out of their state at different times unless they have permission to do so.

To encourage tourism, especially in regional areas, state governments – including that of Victoria – regularly offer travel vouchers. As reported in the media, these were very popular. If the traffic jams at the end of Labor Day weekend were any sign of it, the Victorians are doing their part to help the tourism industry recover.

As a footnote, the B & B in Harcourt, where my partner and I stay the occasional night, is almost fully booked for March.

Our nation’s political sewer

A very simple statement to our Prime Minister on a very troublesome subject.

If you think the attorney general is innocent, say so. If not, put him down.

Another thing: how can you or someone form an opinion without reading the allegations?

Another very simple question for the Defense Minister. Her language was completely wrong for the victim of alleged rape and deserves the conviction she has received. Instead of apologizing to your co-workers, do the right and right thing and apologize to the “victim” of this dirty exercise.

What we’ve seen in the past few weeks is a bloody charge, not just against our political system, but against our treatment of people who are considered “available” and treated equally by their peers.

Can’t you see anything Christian about it?
