Cansdell continues Pit Stop fight



Clarence Nationals MP Steve Cansdell is 'thoroughly unsatisfied' with the response he received from Woolworths CEO Roger Corbett over the supermarket chain's objection to the Palmers Island Pit Stop's liquor licence application.

"I wrote to Mr Corbett last month asking him to reverse his company's decision, however, he has refused to do so," Mr Cansdell said.

In his reply to Mr Cansdell, the supermarket boss 'rejects any suggestion that Woolworths is acting as a Goliath', stating his company and Pit Stop owners Graham and Kris Downing 'simply stand as equals' before the court.

Mr Cansdell speculated it must have been a long time since Mr Corbett had operated a small business if he thought the two firms enjoyed equal standing.

"It may be true that Woolworths' objections do not break the letter of the law, but as I pointed out to him, this attitude is not helping the company's reputation in the Clarence," Mr Cansdell said.
