Statement From The Premier

29 May 2017

History will record that a man named Anthony Foster quietly and profoundly changed Australian history.

This afternoon, I offered his family a State Funeral in his honour.

His wife, Chrissie, has accepted.

Anthony campaigned tirelessly for justice from the Catholic Church.

He fought evil acts that were shamefully denied and covered up.

He and Chrissie lost so much, but never their dignity, grace and strength.

Anthony won't be forgotten, and the fight for justice goes on.
