Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 09 Hansard (Wednesday, 22 August 2018) . . Page.. 3489 ..


In conclusion, let me reiterate my support for the ambos of Canberra. They deserve better than what they are getting from Minister Gentleman; they deserve better than what they are getting from the Labor Party and the Greens. When light is shone onto the minimum crewing levels within the ambulance service, they deserve better than what we have heard from Minister Stephen-Smith and Minister Rattenbury. The ambos in Canberra deserve to have appropriate staffing and appropriate resources, and they are not getting them from this government.

Animals—dangerous dogs

MS LAWDER (Brindabella) (6.20): I rise tonight to pass on a story about a dog attack in Tuggeranong. I think the minister sometimes thinks I am exaggerating when I talk about the stories I receive from constituents. Perhaps she does not get the same mail I do.

Today I want to talk about a little dog called Jakk, whose owner, Corrina from Monash, has contacted me. Corrina writes:

I was out with my 2 sons at a regular playgroup we attend from 9:30-12, as we were leaving I received a phone call from our real estate agent (we are renting) that the dogs next door had gotten into our yard and attacked our dog. The status of our dog was unknown as all other neighbours who herd the incident did not want to enter our yard but could see our dog laying on the back porch not moving.
