IT WAS THE OPENING of the Coal Loader Sustainability Centre at North Sydney and a crowd assembled for the official ribbon cutting by North Sydney Mayor, Genia McCaffery, the local MP and federal minister, Anthony Albanese who said it was an auspicious day to open what had been a coal loader-now-a-sustainability-centre, as his government had just an hour before announced the launch of Australia’s carbon trading scheme.
Also present were two special people in the history of Australian cities – Jack Mundy, who led the Green Bans in the sixties and seventies, and Whitlam government minister, Tom Uren. I recognised the real connection between these two pioneers and the buy cheap cialis land we stood upon there at the once-was-a-coal-loader.
Congratulations to North Sydney Council for having the foresight to create a new sustainability centre for Sydney and for repurposing what was once a BP terminal across the road into public open space.
