Our record population growth is putting real pressure on our infrastructure which is one of the side affects of our immigration policies.

Victoria's economic dependence on building and construction to fuel economic growth relies on bringing in more and more migrants. This is in reality nothing more than a massive Ponzi scheme with Melbourne the fastest growing city bursting at the seams and with overloaded infrastructure.
