A little provincial cash for comment


John Laws has retired but cash for comment lives on. Up in Cairns John McKenzie has a talkback show on 4CA 846AM and The Cairns Post reports this morning that Cairns Regional Council pays $26,000 a year so Mayor Val Schier can have a chat with John on air every Friday morning. 4CA boss Steve Hirst said the council had entered into an agreement with the station and the mayor had been speaking on air for the past four to five weeks. But he said he could not comment further on the agreement.
