Serious Questions About QVM Petition

Last week we posted an article about the latest petition to be presented at the market. It is a petition asking the Victorian Government to "withdraw support for QVM development".
The petition purports to be from the Save Vic Market Group convened by Dr. John Price but we have now been informed that group may not be involved. We have emailed Dr. Price seeking clarification, but haven't received a response as yet.
Social media is claiming it is a "trader petition" but no trader has accepted responsibility for the petition and the official trader representatives (QVMAC Representatives) discussed the issue at a meeting on Tuesday and confirmed they are not involved.
The format of this petition, its timing, its intent, and just who is behind it, are all aspects that need questioning.
