Moratorium on mining

GREENS Party candidate Christine Carlisle yesterday said she would put a moratorium on mining if she was elected.

Ms Carlisle said this would be the second time she ran for the seat of Mirani, after receiving 5% of the votes in the last election.

The retired nurse will contest the seat along with current member for Mirani, the LNP's Ted Malone, Mike Crouther for the Family First Party, Jim Pearce for Labor, and Bevan Pidgeon for Katter's Australian Party.

Ms Carlisle said the electorate needed to move away from the "last century mentality of digging", in favour of renewable energy.

She discussed numerous problems she hoped to address if elected, including the "two-speed economy" prevalent in mining towns, affordable health care, lack of housing and preventing soil dredging in Dalrymple Bay.

The Morning Bulletin could not obtain a photograph of Ms Carlisle yesterday and Mr Crouther could not be contacted.
