Quotes attributed to Inga Peulich MLC, Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs:
“The message that children should not be bullied at the start of the school year is an important message that should have been delivered via an education- focused 'back to school ad' with an anti-bullying message.”
“All Australians no matter who they are, are expected to be good citizens and the Government should lead by positive example and not by making divisive, political comments on multicultural issues.”
“The bipartisan support for multiculturalism must be protected especially by the lead agency, the VMC - not sacrificed for a political purpose or agenda.”
