Action on Caloundra Road traffic congestion
84
31/10/2016
Queensland citizens draw to the attention of the House the main road in and out of Caloundra, Caloundra Road, experiences more than 30,000 commuters every day. By 2031 certain sections of Caloundra Rd is tipped to buckle under pressure from between 1000-24,000 extra motorists daily. An extra 50,000 residents will call Caloundra home upon completion of the mega Caloundra South Development Aura. Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to as part of the solution the Palaszczuk-Labor Government needs to: 1. Work with Stockland to fast-track the completion of the Bells Creek Arterial from Caloundra Rd to the Bruce Highway 2. Investigate installing traffic signals and exit slip-lanes at the Caloundra Rd/Nicklin Way roundabout.

End the 'Gay Panic' defence
130
31/08/2016
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the discrimination faced by LGBTIQ+ people in Queensland through the use of the provocation defence, section 304 of the Criminal Code, colloquially known as the "Gay Panic Defence". This partial defence allows for a charge of murder to be downgraded to manslaughter if it is alleged that an unwanted homosexual advance was made by the deceased towards the defendant. Such an interpretation of this law is completely archaic, has no place in our legal system, and affects the way LGBTIQ+ people live their lives day to day by curbing freedom of expression and association in the public sphere with the threat of violence. It is impossible to articulate just how offensive, dangerous and destructive it would be to allow this defence to remain unaddressed in our Criminal Code, upholding the precedent that a person can be panicked enough by a LGBTIQ+ person to justify murder. Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to remove the potential for provocation to be used in defence of an individual who has committed an act of murder, by enshrining in legislation that an alleged unwanted homosexual advance cannot be used as an application of the provocation defence.

No consumer protection rights exist for buyers who buy structurally defective residential property in Queensland
50
30/06/2016
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House, sellers of residential property in Queensland have no obligation to disclose structural defects. This allows unscrupulous sellers to sell defective and unsafe houses to unsuspecting buyers with no legal remedy for the buyer. These buyers can suffer serious financial hardship. Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to adopt, in principle, the well-established and effective ACT Act Civil Law (Sale of Residential Property) Act 2003 in Queensland to ensure that home buyers are better protected in the interest of justice.

Age-appropriate education for happy, healthy children and teachers
1588
05/08/2016
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that there are problems within our school system. Teachers are being forced to teach an age inappropriate and crowded curriculum which is pushing students too hard, too fast. Teachers have been turned into data collectors, administering a copious number of standardised tests and reports which neither inform their knowledge or understanding of each child's abilities or needs, nor enhances learning. Children are disengaging from learning in a system which sets many of them up to fail. The self-esteem of some children is being damaged and both teachers and children in the system are suffering from stress and anxiety. Children are the reason teachers go to work every day. No one seems to be listening to the very people who know how to remedy the situation - teachers. Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to: 1. Observe international evidence-based best practice and ensure: (a) children are six years of age or older to commence being formally taught an incremental age-appropriate national curriculum (b) all learning prior to age six, including prep, is play-based (c) the data collection and reporting burden on teachers is reduced to maximise engage teaching time. 2. Organise an independent investigation into the true depth of child and teacher distress in primary schools related to current age-inappropriate curricula and top down pressure to perform and assess too soon.

Save our Sparkies
2185
31/05/2016
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the unfair and unexplained plan by the Palaszczuk Labor Government to create a taxpayer funded body to provide unregulated electrical work in direct competition with established and effective private sector electrical contractors. Queensland is already well serviced by thousands of registered local electricians and contractors who provide effective, high quality electrical services as well as providing jobs, training and skills to apprentices in Queensland. There is no demonstrated need for a Queensland Government sponsored and taxpayer funded monolith corporation to compete with the many mum and dad small business electricians and local electrical contractors. The Palaszczuk Labor Government's unfair plan unnecessarily threatens the livelihoods and jobs of thousands of Queenslanders. Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to stop any Government plan to create a taxpayer funded corporation to provide unregulated electrical work in Queensland.

Vegetation Management (Reinstatement) and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2016
2435
16/08/2016
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House our concerns about the amendments contained in the Vegetation Management (Reinstatement) and Other Legislation Amendment Bill and the negative impact it will have on landholders' property rights, agricultural sector productivity and jobs in regional communities. Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to not support the Vegetation Management (Reinstatement) and Other Legislation Amendment Bill in its current form and reject any amendments that would water down existing property rights, remove opportunities for sustainable agricultural production, or jeopardise job creation in regional communities.

Advancing Eastern Standard Time by 30 minutes
243
15/06/2016
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that the Queensland economy is burdened with extra costs ($4.35 billion per annum as per CCIQ Report December 2010) when clocks on the east coast are not synchronised. Eighty six per cent (86%) of the combined Queensland (QLD)/New South Wales (NSW) population, including the citizens of the two state capitals, do not live within Eastern Standard Time (E.S.T). The QLD sector is from Yeppoon to the Gold Coast and west to Goondiwindi. Daylight Saving Time (DST) does not correct this anomaly. A similar situation existed in 1895 when Central Standard Time (C.S.T.) originally excluded Adelaide. In 1898/9 C.S.T. was advanced by 30 minutes to rectify this oversight. Had E.S.T. been corrected at the same time, DST might not have been introduced in Australia. DST is now superfluous and irrelevant in eastern Australia - it certainly has no applicability in Queensland. Apart from the confusion it causes at the QLD/NSW border there are many other inconveniences. Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure that: 1. clocks on the eastern seaboard remain permanently synchronised and, 2. there are no more than three time zones in Australia. We further request the House to seek:• a mandate to advance E.S.T. in Queensland by 30 minutes, thereby encompassing all population centres and cities including Brisbane, and • the contemporaneous agreement of their southern counterparts to legislate likewise and to abandon DST.

Thorough community consultation regarding proposed light rail route through Palm Beach
6
31/08/2016
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House a route proposal for light rail that would follow the Gold Coast Highway through Palm Beach. There has been very limited community consultation by Gold Coast City Council with the people of Palm Beach/Currumbin who will be directly affected by this proposed route. Parking both sides of the highway would be removed and there would be a negative impact upon all those who live along or near the Gold Coast Highway as well as many of the now thriving local small businesses. Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure there will be thorough community consultation with residents who live in this location before any decision to proceed with light rail in Palm Beach.
