another part to that—went viral on YouTube with 250,000 hits. I suggest you all look it up; it is a very funny thing. Juliet is the founder of the Fearless Comedy Gala, which will be held here in the Canberra Theatre on 18 August. The purpose of the Fearless Comedy Gala is to raise money for the Domestic Violence Crisis Service. We are all aware that this year’s budget provided a $21 million package, which has been supported by all members, to address domestic violence. But initiatives like the Fearless Comedy Gala are just as important as the government response.

I thank the sponsors that have assisted with this gala, being WIN TV, the Bendigo Community Bank and Capital Chemist. As always, without the assistance of the business community these things would not happen here in Canberra.

This is an effort to provide funding for a very important service in Canberra. It will be a comedy evening about a subject that is not very funny, but it will be opportunity for Canberrans to support efforts to change the way that domestic violence is viewed across the territory and to raise some money for that organisation. I commend Juliet’s efforts to the Assembly.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

The Assembly adjourned at 5.55pm.
