Govt’s kerbing of free speech about Coal

I thought that Hugh was amazingly patient with Canavan’s prevarication and dissembling- he did not mention his fracking plan brought from America to press for Shale Oil fracking here - the method is the dirtiest of all. He has interested 2 of the biggest fracking oufits here to start work.
The area that they wish to destroy is 3 times the size of Sydney.
I think that Hugh didn’t know about this.
