Two ducks scurry past annoyed and the sentiments unfolding and the words 'to be continued..' appear underneath. The woman explains "Our new Civic Precinct will be built where the duck pond now exists. It will have something for everyone: Artists, performers, readers, meetings etc, etc..." The ducks reply, "What about us??? quack!!".
