State Member for Pumicestone Simone Wilson has slammed accusations that a nuclear plant will be built on Bribie Island.
Whilst Ms Wilson is not recontesting the seat of Pumicestone at the state election on October 31, one of those contesting is Ali King, a Labor candidate.
“Ms King states on her Facebook page that “over and over again Bribie Island has been suggested by the LNP as a possible site for a nuclear power plant,” Ms Wilson said.
“This is an outright lie and shows the level Labour are prepared to stoop to win votes.
“Government conversations about power sources are one thing but spread bare faced lies that the LNP have repeatedly suggested Bribie Island as a site is shameful,” Ms Wilson said.
“Let me make this clear, the LNP have never mentioned Bribie Island as a nuclear power plant site and never will.
“In 2018 in the State Parliament I put this Labor lie to bed once and for all. There will never be a nuclear power plant on Bribie Island.
“Ms King needs to stump up the evidence on her claims or move on quickly as we are a sharp bunch out here and won’t be treated as fools.
“This type of blatant scaremongering needs to stop,” Ms Wilson said.
State candidate Ali King disagrees.
“Our community must stay vigilant about these pro-nuclear voices in the LNP," Ms King said.
“Ms Wilson may like to pretend concerns about the LNP opening the door to nuclear power in Queensland in places like Bribie Island are rumours but her own colleagues feel differently,” Ms King said.
