Petition Tag - fraser
The City of Surrey took up the GO FOR 20 CHALLENGE in August 2005 to encourage residents to increase their physical activity.
Fraser Heights Community Center was built without a much needed fitness centre that should have included a variety of cardio equipment- treadmills, elliptical trainers, bikes, stairclimbers, rowing machines as well as a free weight area.
For years people from the Fraser Coast have had to travel to either Brisbane or Townsville to go and have fun Ice Skating... at least 4 hours each way!
For the real competive skaters, on top of training, they need to pay for accomodation, transport and petrol... (we all know how much that can these days).
But for us skaters that just purely enjoy skating, going over 4 hours to an ice rink is quite pointless unless we have another reason to be in that town. Please sign this petition... if not for the fact that ice skating is fun... just sign it for the fact that an ice rink is cool for those hot summer days!

"Thank you very much for the chance to publicly condemn the comments of Andrew Fraser. As a result, I believe we can be proud that we stood up against his comments, and hopefully show that racism will be not tolerated in society!"

This petition relates to the racist comments made by Professor Andrew Fraser of the Department of Public Law at Macquarie University, which appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald on the 16/7/05.
His comments advocated that there should be no non-white immigration into Australia on the basis that it will and does lead to an increase in crime.
