The cost of dealing with Australia's nuclear waste only rises. Federal Resources Minister Matt Canavan is waving big money at anyone who'll take our waste, with latest figures indicating total funding of $31 million for the project. The current shortlisted communities have received Federal Government development grants totalling $4 million. Back in 2014, the Ngapa clans proposing Muckaty Station as a nuclear waste dump would have received a total of $12 million.

“This is a sensational result for the many Territorians who value our near pristine environment; it is a great result for access to justice; and it’s a great result for people who value government and industry accountability,” said David Morris, the EDO’s Principal Lawyer.
All four governments appear unwilling to sit down together and work out an equitable solution: the Commonwealth in particular appears reluctant to knock a few heads together and get the results needed.
Martin Hardie: "Actions like this by ASADA only serve to further undermine the public’s faith in the anti-doping system. We can only hope that the Federal Government properly reviews the operations of ASADA to restore faith in the anti-doping system and to create some semblance of fairness for athletes."
ASADA will fail Australian sport if it doesn't put in the hard yards to ensure that sports men and women are inside the tent, not just outside pissing in tin cups.
