As chief minister he oversaw the creation of the Howard Springs Quarantine Facility. Lockdowns in indigenous communities. The corporate media and politicians insist they support it even though their COVID vaccine take-up is much lower than the national average.

In November 2021, he was accused of using the army to hold down Aboriginals and force injecting them with Covid vaccines and dragging infected people to camps. Gunner blamed this on "international trolls".[2]

“The BS that’s flying around on the internet about the territory is coming from flogs outside the territory – mostly America, Canada and the UK,” Mr Gunner told a media conference on Thursday.

If anybody thinks we’re going to be distracted by tin foil hat-wearing tossers sitting in their parents’ basement in Florida – then you do not know us Territorians”
