Tim Nicholls must tear up his deal with One Nation and abandon his plan for an LNP One Nation coalition government to keep One Nation's dangerous domestic violence policies from being implemented.
 
Speaking ahead of Tim Nicholls appearance at a forum in Townsville, Ms Fentiman said the real prospect of an LNP One Nation coalition meant One Nation's fringe domestic violence policies would come in to play, putting women and children at risk.
 
"One Nation's policy demands equal access to children for all parents, even if they are perpetrating violence," Ms Fentiman said.
 
"They want to dismantle the significant protections we have created for victims appearing in courts, and demand evidence of physical injuries before Domestic Violence Orders are imposed."
 
Today Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk will attend a White Ribbon Day event in Bundaberg and Ms Fentiman will do the same in Brisbane.
 
Labor MP for Townsville Scott Stewart, Mundingburra MP Coralee O'Rourke and Thuringowa MP Aaron Harper will not be at the Townsville forum, instead attending a White Ribbon Day event.
 
Ms Fentiman said Mr Nicholls must use today's forum to reject One Nation entirely, including its dangerous domestic violence policy.
 
"One Nation is already preparing its list of policy demands ready to form a coalition with Tim Nicholls' LNP," she said.
 
"You can't have a partnership with One Nation without the chaos that comes with it, and this domestic violence policy could well lead to serious injuries or deaths.
 
"The partnership between the LNP and One Nation could throw away all the progress we have made on tackling domestic and family violence.
 
"Mr Nicholls must scrap his terrible deal with One Nation and rule out a coalition today."
