Marriage Equality

I have noticed recently, that the Moree Champion have published a number of articles, which in my view lean towards been in favour of changing the definition of the marriage act to suit homosexual and lesbian couples. I have also noticed your paper publishes quite a few articles in the opinion section written by authors outside of Moree.  If you receive any, I would love to see more opinion articles authored by Moree locals, including, those which may not be in favour of marriage equality.  I think a balanced approach to reporting and publishing both sides of a debate is a sign of a healthy democracy and a healthy media outlet.

I would hope therefore, that the Moree Champion is not bias in what it allows too go to print, particularly in relation to the marriage equality debate and leading up to the plebiscite vote?

Pool problems

Too many young children under the age of 5 are drowning in backyard pools.  Inadequate pool fencing remains a major contributing factor to the issue.

The last thing Royal Life Saving wants to see this summer are devastating deaths.  They are urging people in your area to make this weekend a home pool safety weekend where people check out their home pool from top to bottom.  Too many people don’t realise that if a pool gate is faulty or a fence is faulty, it poses a clear risk to their children’s safety.

Pool gates and pool fences need to be regularly checked.
