In 1998 Colin Barnett as the then Education Minister Barnett acknowledged the problem of Asbestos in schools and a roof replacement was undertaken in schools.

However what has happened since?

The press reports of Asbestos problems at the Burswood Peninsula have seen little or no response by the WA Government.

The Public Health website has no release about the problems, and our call to the Health Ministers office as Joe Public was a 'do not know' and transfer to Health Department and a phone ring around.

The WA Cancer Council has released its wanted priorities for the WA 2013 election.

  • More specially trained cancer doctors, nurses and health professionals. There are simply too few experts to treat the cancers of today and certainly not enough for the future.
  • More money for health and medical research. Western Australia is falling sadly behind other States in Australia due to a lack of investment by the State Government. We want the next State Government to address this shortfall.
  • More action on asbestos. There is too much asbestos in the WA community, we know too little about where it is and there is insufficient action to educate those exposed, to safely remove, transport or dispose of it.

Wittenoom has been left with a legacy by Hancock, Wright and CSR of asbestos issues that still require fixing in the environment.

The #wa2013vote website will be kept online so politicians promises and statements can be checked until the end of next WA election in 2017, and after.
