Cumberland Mayor Steve Christou says his council’s Australia Day celebrations will be bigger than ever.
Christou took swipe at councils that talk down the national day.
“The decision by the Hills Shire Council to scale back Australia Day celebrations is un-Australian, lazy, and a perfect example of bed-wetting at its finest,” Christou said.
The Hills Shire Council voted last Tuesday to scale back its Australia Day celebrations next year at Bella Vista Farm Park over COVID-19 concerns.
“Australia Day is the biggest national holiday of the year and something we all should be proud of as a nation,” Christou said.
“Instead, every November, December we seem to have the doomsayers like Inner West Council wanting to trash Australia Day altogether.
“I am fed up with this kind of treachery.”
