Either direction you decide to go in life, why not make a point to slow down and to explore and consider Canberra as the place for the change you need in life. Sure beats speeding down the wrong way.

You can expect warm to hot summers, clear, crisp winters, spectacular springs and balmy colourful autumns. Fact: Canberra enjoys more hours of sunshine than Sydney or the Gold Coast.

The French mother corrects the child with, 'Be wise.'
The Scandinavian mother says, 'Be friendly.'
The German mother says, 'Be in line.'
But the Hopi Indian mother says, 'That is not the Hopi way' (Raphel 2008)."
To do this, the copywriter would have to invest time with the client, one on one, and learn more, particularly the audience to be targeted for this campaign.
