$8.8 Million from the feds. $3 Million from the state (so far).

Two days of shaking hands and smiling for the camera.

Two years of bloody hard graft to get here.

I'm doing the happy dance and will shortly collapse. Next comes the really hard work of proving 81% of the Cairns population wrong.

That we will be able to do. All of these programs have to be transparent with records publicly available.
Right now we're in a frenzy of planning.

I can imagine that use of helicopters will cost quite a lot.
