Daniel Andrews has ignored his own consultation process by imposing new restrictions on Victorian hunters in the 2018 duck season, says Coalition deputy leader Peter Walsh.
The Andrews Labor Government has taken no notice of advice from informed stakeholder groups that strongly argued against the restrictions.
“Victorian hunters legally taking part in the duck hunting season are being penalised by a Labor Government desperate to keep the Greens on-side,” Mr Walsh said.
“Duck hunting is a legitimate recreational activity that brings thousands of hunters and their families into regional Victoria and provides a healthy boost to our regional economies.
“Daniel Andrews has shown time and time again he will always put green ideology ahead of our regional communities.”
