ONE Nation leader Pauline Hanson has declared she doesn’t believe “true Aboriginals” care about shifting Australia Day from January 26.

The senator, who hosted an open forum and celebration at the Buderim Tavern on the Sunshine Coast, said she felt it was not the date that mattered.

Ms Hanson said “the sentiment will be the same” no matter when the day was held and Australia had to deal with the issues.

She said we could not change what had happened in history.

“I don’t believe that true Aboriginals care about the date,” Ms Hanson said.

“It’s a minority pushing an agenda.”
