Calvary Action Commences

Calvary Hospital has commenced legal action against the ACT Government seeking an injunction to restrain the Government from compulsorily acquiring the Calvary Public Hospital. 

ACT’s Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) Director, Rob Norman said “We congratulate Calvary for commencing legal action. It is critical that the ACT Government’s activities are exposed to the scrutiny of the legal process.

“The ACT Government has ignored due process and acted in a totalitarian manner, clearly motivated by its opposition to the religious ethos of the Calvary Hospital. The Court’s examination of this takeover will be very helpful”. 

The ACL looks forward to the Court’s decision.
