Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 02 Hansard (Thursday, 25 February 2010) . . Page.. 798 ..


There is more to Mr Westende’s inaugural speech and his words deserve to be read. I commend his speech to you. But Lou Westende’s words of 18 years ago echo to us today, especially to us in the opposition, as these are the very words that we are trying to fulfil—a strong and united opposition that intends to push this government every step of the way until we take government in three years time.

I was very inspired by Lou Westende’s story and, when he celebrates his 85th birthday in August of this year, I hope we can invite him to visit the Assembly. In the meantime I certainly recommend his book to all, Fulfilment & Success: the Story of Lou Westende—a migrant.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

The Assembly adjourned at 5.04 pm until Tuesday, 16 March 2010, at 10 am.
