The Big Picture #60 explores the new meaning of service in Tasmania as evidenced by our revered infrastructure Minister, we recast a plea from a Victorian letter writer worried about the effects of GM canola, note that it isn’t only Tasmania that is leaving the public out of government decision making, recast an interesting article about Australia’s water wars, print an article from the US that describes the all too familiar lethargy that is affecting the West, and present the week’s stories linked and organised as you like them shaken over ice with Pimms Number 1 Cup and served with celery heart and grated nutmeg.
