In outstanding news for Queensland, the International Olympic Committee has designated Brisbane’s bid for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games as “preferred bid status” meaning it is in the box seat.

The bid is based on a number of major infrastructure projects, which would provide a lasting legacy for the region.  If the Games bid is finalised in the next year as expected, it would provide a jobs and economic boom through the acceleration of infrastructure projects.

Last week the Palaszczuk Government announced that it was establishing a taskforce to recommend how best to legislate against coercive control as a form of domestic and family violence. Former Court of Appeal Judge, Hon. Margaret McMurdo will lead the taskforce and report within twelve months followed by the introduction of legislation early in 2022.

This was announced in the same week marking the one-year anniversary of the tragic murder of Hannah, Aaliyah, Laianah and Trey Clarke. This significant next step in legislating against coercive control is largely due to the campaign and awareness being raised by Sue and Lloyd Clarke. They, together with the Small Steps 4 Hannah Foundation, have worked tirelessly since that fateful afternoon in February last year to stop the scourge of family and domestic violence in all its pervasive forms.
