Trent Hawkins attended the HSC candidates conference and as reported in Green Left Weekly stated "that there was no need for further investigation and more taskforces." He said HSC had established the facts, we “now need to just build [the school]”. Hawkins linked the situation to the legacy of privatisation and the failure to provide public facilities. He said the $570 million of taxpayers’ money the government had earmarked for the controversial desalination plant would be better spent on community facilities such as a high school in Coburg.
