Chief Minister Andrew Barr is choosing to think positively, following the defeat of the Voice to Parliament.
The proposed advisory body was rejected by a large majority, with every jurisdiction bar the ACT voting it down.
Chief Minister Andrew Barr says, while he’s disappointed the vote didn’t get over the line, he’s pleased that Canberrans were willing to support it.
Barr took aim at the NO campaigns slogan ‘if you don’t know, vote no’, saying, if Canberrans didn’t know, they took the time to find out.
He says the new focus will be on responding to issues raised by the referendum, with progress being made on closing the gap in the ACT.
