Senator Matthew Canavan discusses mining and energy sector

Tuesday 10th of January 2017 01:30:14 PM



Senator Matthew Canavan who is based in Rockhampton appeared on Steve Price’s 2GB radio breakfast program this morning discuss the mining and energy sector hitting a record $204 billion this year.

"You get a lot of commentaries sometimes - particularly from people who live a long way from where these mines are - suggesting that we can just get rid of it and move on as if nothing has changed," Mr Canavan said.

"Well, if we did that, if we shut down our mining sector, hundreds of thousands of people would lose their jobs, and then there'd be massive flow-on effects of course as well.

"It's just what we need to do to make a buck. That's the real world, that's real life."

Mr Price is a familiar face on Channel 10/WIN, where he frequently represents the 'right wing' perspective on evening news program The Project.
