Gunns seeks Greens support for pulp mill

Posted on 10/11/2009  

Timber company Gunns, proponent of the $2 billion pulp mill in Tasmania, has held talks with Greens leader Bob Brown and The Wilderness Society. The Australian says both Senator Brown and TWS representatives have in recent months met Gunns management as the company seeks to reduce community opposition to the mill. Senator Brown met Gunns chairman John Gay at the Launceston Country Club and Casino several months ago, as the company sought to know what it would take to blunt the Greens' staunch opposition to the mill, the newspaper said.
