Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 11 Hansard (23 September) . .
However, as I said earlier, I think paragraph (3)(c) is an unnecessary distraction in the context. Given the speech Mr Smyth has just made, he has clearly demonstrated that, in fact, he was not genuine about celebrating the 15-year relationship and he wanted to try and put Mr Barr on some sort of hook.
Mr Smyth: Ridiculous.
MR RATTENBURY: You have just made a speech entirely along those lines, Mr Smyth. So let us call it for what it is. I am quite happy to support Mr Barr's amendment and therefore support the motion that celebrates the 15 years of the sister city relationship.
That the amendment be agreed to.
The Assembly voted—
Ayes 8: Mr Barr Ms Berry Dr Bourke Ms Burch Mr Corbell Ms Fitzharris Mr Gentleman Mr Rattenbury
Noes 7: Mr Coe Mr Doszpot Mrs Dunne Mr Hanson Ms Lawder Mr Smyth Mr Wall
Question so resolved in the affirmative.
Motion, as amended, agreed to.
DR BOURKE (Ginninderra) (4.29): I move:
That this Assembly:
(1) notes the:
(a) wealth of cultures which make up the ACT community;
(b) importance of cultural awareness and celebration in promoting harmony, understanding and inclusion;
(c) contribution of members of the public, community groups, business leaders, social enterprise and political leaders to the success of multiculturalism in the ACT; and
(d) significant contribution of multiculturalism to enhancing the social, economic, cultural and civic development of the ACT and the wellbeing of all Canberrans;
