Ballarat Council considers supporting the U.N. Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons

Question raised as to why Ballarat councillors are discussing nuclear weapons, arms will be on the agenda at Wednesday night’s City of Ballarat council meeting, with one councillor labelling it a waste of time.

Councillors will vote on whether or not to support a treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons.

Cr Ben Taylor says it’s disappointing they are dealing with items that have nothing to do with Ballarat.
“We’re in the middle of a lockdown, people are worried about their jobs and their kids not going to school and Ballarat City Council seems to want to put their attention on the prohibition of nuclear weapons.”
“It’s got nothing to do with Ballarat and nothing to do with Australia,” Cr Taylor said.
