"Brigalow Corporation". The short version.

Extract from speech given by Sue Mayne HERE.

Brigalow Corporation

"The Brigalow Corporation (of the State of Qld) originated in the old Qld Crowns Lands Act and came about through the Qld Government borrowing from the Federal Government funds to develop what was termed the “Brigalow Belt” (about 4 mil acres) out from Rockhampton during the 1960’s."

"The old Crowns Lands Act (Qld) has now been converted to the “Land Act 1994 (Qld)” and this is where you can find the “Brigalow Corporation” today. In essence the government of Qld has moved all the crowns land AND all crown land that was sold (fee simple) into the Brigalow Corporation through the Land Act,"

The “Brigalow Corporation” in not Listed as a “Public” company on the Stock Exchange, it is an “Exempt Public Authority”

"the State of QLD became a Corporation Government. Under the definition of ‘person’ in the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 (C’wth), section 22 (1)(a) expressions used to denote persons include a body politic or corporate as well as an individual" "

"The elected Members
of the sovereign people of the State of QLD have, since 29th January 1999 taken it upon themselves, (contrary to the Criminal Code Act 1995(C'wth) to which they are all subject under Chapter 7 - The proper administration of Government), to create for themselves, under the Constitution of QLD 2001, a corporation Government in which the sovereign people of QLD and their property are mere chattels of the State. This surely is a breach of the trust and faith which the electors of QLD placed in their elected members to uphold and respect the laws of the Commonwealth."

"The State of Queensland Australia is registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commissions under No. 0001244818. "

Government Tiers

"All Government tiers, including Local councils are now inside the Parliament of QLD".

"The Members of the Legislative
Assembly are clearly individuals and members of the corporation as defined in the Acts Interpretation Act 1954 sect 32 & 33.. "

"Members of the Legislative Assembly are paid by the Parliament of QLD
and are elected subject to the Election Act (Q) which is an Act enacted by the Parliament of QLD".

"All elections held in QLD since 6th June 2002 are elections at common law but the Election Act of QLD is subject to the Uniform Civil Procedures Rules 1999 of QLD, therefore any vote given in any State, Federal or Council elections since that time are votes in name only."

"The Acts Interpretation (State Commercial Activities) Act 1994 amended the Acts Interpretation Act 1954 to define "the State" to mean the Executive government of the State of QLD. Under the provisions of this Act, "the State" may carry out commercial activities 'without further statutory authority' and 'without prior appropriation from the public accounts' {s47C.(3)} Section 47C. defines 'commercial activities to include 'commercial activities that are not within the ordinary functions of the State' and these functions may be delegated by a Minister to an officer of the State who may sub-delegate delegated powers to another officer of the State. An 'officer of the State means a chief executive, or employee of the public sector or an officer of the public service'."

"The Second Reading Speech of the former Premier the Honourable Peter Beattie when he created the new Government of QLD, placed inside the Parliament himself as Premier (President), the Ministers, the Governor as a parliamentary secretary, the judges and justices of the Supreme and District Courts, the Supreme and District Court, the Local Government Councils."

"The public officials are not public officials of "the Crown" but public officials of "the State" of QLD. As all real property has now been taken back by the State and held under the State corporation, the Brigalow Corporation, the public officials are in fact now working for the owners of the land, the State Government of QLD."

"The only tenure that any financial institutions hold in land in QLD today, even though they may believe they hold an estate in fee simple, is in fact held by the corporation of the State, the Brigalow Corporation and is now the full property of the State. The lending institutions now only hold a statutory title and an interest only in the land by virtue of the Statutory Instruments Act 1992 under which the rules of the Supreme and District Courts are found under section 12 of that Act."

"The owners of that property
taken by the corporation can only hope that the corporation has not used your real property as an asset to borrow funds for the corporation for whatever purpose. If the independent State corporation fails or borrowing is too extensive, it will again be the sovereign people who will bear the financial consequences."

"Your Deed of Grant in fee simple is now a statutory title only
, and that title is upheld by Supreme and District Courts of the corporate Government of QLD the civil laws of the and the Judges of the Supreme and District Courts who are inside the Government."

  5. Thanks for shedding light on the Brigalow Corporation's origins! It's fascinating how these entities evolve from historical acts. Speaking of QLD bodies, has anyone had experiences with a QLD body corporate manager? I'm curious to hear about any insights or recommendations regarding their role in managing properties. Let's keep the conversation going!
