CFA firefighters battling a house fire in Kialla Lakes this year.

We can honour history of CFA

Peter Walsh

Nationals leader

Each and every day CFA volunteer and career firefighters leave their families to fight fires, saves lives and keep us safe.

But as thanks for protecting our country communities, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has spent years trying to tear the CFA apart.

Most recently, Daniel Andrews and Labor’s Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp tried to ram through their flawed Fire Rescue Victoria bill while a known opponent was unwell and unable to cast her vote.

This followed Labor’s deceitful and manipulative decision to tie its flawed plan to the same Bill as cancer compensation for firefighters.

The Liberal Nationals blocked the legislation.

We promised Victoria’s 60000 CFA volunteer and career firefighters we would stand by them and that is exactly what we did.

On November 24, Victorians will have a clear choice — Daniel Andrews and his union mates at the UFU, or the Liberal Nationals and the CFA, with its long and proud history of volunteerism.
