Cansdell, Flanagan square off



AS with most issues, the RTA's Pacific Highway upgrade has left people on both sides finger pointing.

While protestors milled around vying for shade yesterday, the attention was focused on a confrontation between suspended Coffs Harbour State Member Andrew Fraser and Clarence Valley councillor Terry Flanagan.

Later, as Mr Flanagan took to the stage to tell protestors about Mr Cansdell's up-coming meeting with Roads Minister Joe Tripodi, things got heated again.

"You're a liar," yelled Mr Cansdell from the side of the stage, as Mr Flanagan told the crowd the State Member had known about the meeting for a week.

The predictable slanging match then continued to the side of the stage.

"I told them the extension was decided yesterday," Mr Flanagan said as he and Mr Cansdell clashed.

"Deadset you are full of crap," said Cansdell as Mr Flanagan walked off.
