The article discusses the issue on the Brisbane river dredging in Queensland. It reports on the meeting conducted at the Mount Cosby State school. In the meeting, the consultant appointed by the Premier's Department defended the operation of the river dredgers, which are claimed to be the cause of bank erosion in the river. His opinions, however, were disregarded and his services were also terminated.
