Quoted from the article (online here):

Delta MP Carla Qualtrough says her position hasn't changed on Terminal 2.

Questions have been raised about the rookie Liberal MP's stance after she voiced concerns during last year's federal election campaign about the proposed three-berth container port at Roberts Bank, which is now at the panel review stage. ...

"This government has had a year to address the industrialization of the river and estuary and has done nothing more than talk about reviewing environmental legislation," said Against Port Expansion's Roger Emsley. ...

"The impact on Roberts Bank will be immediate and irreversible. Mitigation will be impossible. Whilst our MLA, Vicki Huntington, has spoken out strongly against T2, our MP for Delta, Carla Qualtrough, has remained silent, despite voicing concerns about T2, its viability and environmental impacts during the 2015 election campaign."
