Australians gamble more per capita than any nation in the world. Anything you can think of, you can bet on. While other countries are taking massive steps towards dealing with gambling related issues, our Government’s sit on their hands doing nothing. The City of Monash has a proud record of speaking out against this scourge on society. It does real harm to vulnerable people and families.
I’m also sick of being inundated with gambling advertising. It’s everywhere you go; on television, in the papers, online, at sporting events, on public transport - the list goes on.
When is enough enough, and when are our Government’s going to act in the best interests of its citizens instead of worrying about party donations?

Never have I seen pokies being advertised as it is illegal to do so in Vic. So the pix you posted have nothing to do with the ‘in your face’ constant gambling advertising that is totally legal ie Sportsbet, Bet360 etc that our governments makes millions out of on a daily basis
The government has most certainly done something in this area. In 2016, it became illegal to gamble online, taking away the ability to bet real money in online casinos, pokies and poker sites. That was a huge step in the right direction, though very annoying for poker players!
What involvement has the monash council had in enabling gambling venues in monash over the last 40 yrs?
Everyone knows that Basil & Macrina make amazing coffee (it’s my regular stop off on the way to Council), but did you know they make a terrific breakfast and delicious strawberry milkshakes? They’re also open on Sundays!
Every Friday night we get our Fish ‘n Chips at Macrina Fish & Chips just a few shops down as well. With Tarantino's Pizzeria and a local IGA, Macrina Street is the definition of a thriving local shopping centre

Great memories Stuart. Can I call you Stuart? Or should I say Mayor. Which Mr Men or Little Miss character best describes you? I’d describe myself as a Mr Cool 😎
The kids wanted to plant fruit and veggies, so out came the old rose bushes and in went carrots, lettuce, strawberries, bok choy, cucumber and corn. Now they need to learn how to tend to them 😀 ... See MoreSee Less

Today I wrote to my counterparts at East Gippsland Shire Council, Mansfield Shire Council, Wellington Shire Council, Rural City of Wangaratta, Towong Shire Council and Alpine Shire Council to offer the thoughts and sympathies of Monash Council and it’s residents
These are unprecedented times with extraordinarily devastating results. The City of Monash stands shoulder to shoulder with our friends from around the state and remain willing to assist in whatever way we can
If you’d like to contribute in some way, we’ve compiled a list of ways you can : www.monash.vic.gov.au/About-Us/News/Where-to-donate-for-bushfire-relief ... See MoreSee Less

Please keep us posted on practical ways we can assist. I've donated to Red Cross and am actively supporting woldlife carers. We have a climate emergency. and need Council policies, coordination, projects and other initiatives - good wishes should incline us to action.l
Well done Stuart What can they community do to help? What's the best agency or charity to donate to? (Btw it's = it is Its = of it)
Is there a way we can drop off food, toiletries etc, like the Sun Theatre in Yarraville is doing, to send to Bairnsdale and East Gippsland, or up north to Corryong?
Can we drop food donations at the council chambers
