"Tasmanians for a Better Future" Controversy

Immediately prior to the 2006 Tasmanian state election, CCTas ran a series of ads for a secretive group of businessmen calling themselves "Tasmanians for a Better Future". The ads attacked the Tasmanian Greens and advocated the return of 'majority' government, which in effect meant urging a vote for the incumbent Labor government. The ads were particularly controversial because CCTas refused to reveal the who had funded them.[2]

Personnel

CCTas no longer discloses who works for it on its website. However, a list provided on the company's website in 2006 listed the following staff.[3]

Clients

In 2003 CCTas won a PR Week Asia Pacific international award for their work on the "transfer of the environmental licence from the holding company of the former Tioxide site at Heybridge to Echo Tasmania".[4]
