hopefully i will find some good souls on this forum who will agree with me.
i feel very strongly about the proposed ban on greyhound racing.
i oppose the ban for the sake of those honest australians whom form a core of the greyhound racing industry.i feel for the people who will lose their livelihood and or their social outlet due to this ban.
cruelty to animals should never be tolerated of course. i am a dog lover and a punter.but its not about punting.
i believe the social costs to our society far outweigh the reasons for the ban.
regional nsw is dependent on a few industries. a local dog food cannery employs 11 people.where do these 11 people go with no employment,the village and local services will be diminished and disadvantaged.the local unemployment cues will be even longer.
mr baird and band of doogooders ,have you really thought through these consequences for regional australia.?if the state elections were next week,bairds government would be gonskiis.
regional towns like lismore,coonamble and moss vale have greyhound tracks which employ people.they also give honest australians the opportunity to race their dogs and mix socially .social interaction is important for mental health.
anyway,i think the whole thing is unaustralian.
thats what i reckon.
