The head of the Taxi Council of Queensland hopes that the upcoming 'Destination Q Forum" in Cairns will not be a 'talkfest' but will proactively address issues like violent crime.
The following statement is to be attributed to Benjamin Wash, CEO of Taxi Council of Queensland.
“In response to the alleged attack on a taxi driver at Aspley early Sunday morning, I condemn all violence against our drivers. Those that attack drivers who are simply doing their job are cowardly and this sort of behaviour must be viewed as unacceptable by the community and our courts. The Taxi Council of Queensland will be following this case closely.”
