Daily Examiner goes all coy on name of Maclean Chamber of Commerce 'spokesperson' who actually said this......
The Daily Examiner on 17th April 2011:
“The chamber will argue the Fisheries must be relocated to a more appropriate location with the levee wall in the central business district also moved and replaced with open gates so as to not impede the views.”
Yep, screw with a reliable levee. Just the thing to bring regular visitors into town – the threat of a flood easily breaching CBD defences.
And I’m sure locals in low-lying houses will be thrilled at the thought of the extra risk and maybe less time to evacuate to higher ground.
What did the study named by the journo actually warn about?
