I am very happy that Colin Barnett has gone into bat for the port at Oakajee. I believe that infrastructure should never become the property of forreign countries. This was about to happen under Labor with the Chinese Government being the major stakeholder. Geraldton has waited many years to have a decent port installed but previous governments have stalled that decision. We have a micky mouse port (as described by the Hon Wilson Tuckey) in Geraldton that can only handle small shipping. Well done Colin and not before time. This will open up the Midwest and encourage further investment in this region producing royalities for the state over a long period of time, something the Mandurah Rail will never do.
