Cynthia Lui MP
Member for Cook
While whopping bonuses may seem as a job well done for CEQ Executives, my communities are still heavily challenged by the high cost of living. The Cook electorate takes in a large number of small remote communities where CEQ is often the only option for food and essential goods.
I am absolutely outraged by this abhorrent decision because CEQ executive bonuses will do nothing to change the challenges relating to high cost of living affecting vulnerable communities who are already severely disadvantaged socially and economically.
Communities should rightly expect that every dollar of profit that CEQ makes should be used to reduce food prices in communities that have some of the highest food prices in the country.
I have today called the Deputy Premier and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnership to register my outrage and have sought an urgent briefing on the matter.
