Finally, and a nice piece to finish on, is Brendan Foster’s latest opinion piece on WA Today. Brendan has come along with Fremantle on this journey and been a key part of the discussion and debate.

    Congrats to you Mr Mayor for your vision in fostering and sponsoring the event and then having the bravery to stick with the idea as pressure was piled upon you from all angles (it is often the Mayor of Fremantle gains international press coverage). The ultimate endorsement was the attendance of so many indigenous people at the event and the tolerant and peaceful tone of the event. Thanks for your leadership. You are worth every cent of my rates.
