On a point of order, Deputy Speaker, the member for Ferntree Gully clearly is getting right away from the MPI's issue of employment

I am certainly pleased to speak and follow on from the member for South-West Coast, who sadly wanted to talk down her electorate and what is happening in regional Victoria. When I heard her talking about the roads I thought, 'It is hard to believe how roads can deteriorate in just 18 months since this government came to office'. I suspect that the former member for South-West Coast — the former Premier — is very much responsible for clearly not addressing the roads in his own electorate during the four sad years of the former coalition government.
I have been delighted to visit several towns in Golden Plains shire this past week following the completion of a number of great community facility upgrades.
The Premier also visited Phoenix P–12 Community College on that day to be shown plans for the next stage of building works soon to get underway following a funding allocation from the first Andrews government budget. Again they were delighted by this announcement.
Friday, 5 August, marked another great day for my electorate. On that day the Premier came to Ballarat to formally open the Canadian Regional Park, securing this 641-hectare park for future generations of Ballarat residents.
