Brown puts pulp mill opposition to Chandler

Media Release
Bob Brown 8 Feb 2012

Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown has today written to Mr Richard Chandler, the new investor in Gunns Ltd, recommending he look at better investment opportunities in Tasmania than the unpopular pulp mill proposal in the Tamar Valley.

"The polluting pulp mill cuts right across Tasmania's ‘clean, green and clever' branding and it is only fair that Mr Chandler knows at the outset that the pulp mill proposal is a dinosaur which should be extinct," Senator Brown said.

"I have suggested to Mr Chandler that we catch up so I can outline to him how the pulp mill process was corrupted, why it is so divisive and the much better options for investment and job creation in Tasmania."
