Public Place Names Amendment Bill 2021

Dr Paterson, pursuant to notice, presented the bill and its explanatory statement.

Title read by Clerk.

DR PATERSON (Murrumbidgee) (3.07): I move:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

I wish to acknowledge and pay my respects to the past, present and future traditional custodians and elders of this land, the Ngunnawal people. I wish to acknowledge and respect their continuing culture, spiritual and educational practices and the contribution that they make to the life of this city and the region. I would also like to pay my respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people here today and acknowledge Paula McGrady from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body. I also wish to acknowledge my respect for deceased persons, as I will be mentioning the names of persons who have passed on.

I was saddened to hear the news this morning and overnight that Aboriginal actor David Dalaithngu passed away. I was lucky to have met him a few times during my work in Arnhem Land. We will all remember him for the roles he played in some of Australia’s most iconic films, including his beautiful narration of Ten Canoes, world-famous films like Crocodile Dundee, Rabbit-Proof Fence, The Tracker, Walkabout and the moving film that I have very fond memories of as a child, Storm Boy.
