Man who breached kauri dieback rules gets $5700 fine
The West Auckland man was caught several times on camera in 2019 entering closed walkways in Titirangi.

It is the first prosecution of its kind.

Local iwi, Te Kawerau a Maki, delivered their victim impact statement to the court in which Te Kawerau a Maki Tiaki Trust director Robin Taua-Gordon said the "calling down" of the rāhui was not taken lightly.

It was not some quaint cultural activity without consequence but a means to heal and make safe, Taua-Gordon said.

"Rāhui is one of the strongest forms of environmental management used by tangata whenua, and is only applied in serious situations, such as death, risk of loss of food species, or threats to habitat."......

National leader Judith Collins sings Ngai Tahu's praise after the iwi 'corrects' her on water ownership
Collins brushed off Ngai Tahu's criticism on Tuesday, responding by singing the iwi's praise for not seeking co-ownership of water assets.

"I thought it was very telling that Ngāi Tahu said that they did not ask for co-ownership of all the water but that was clearly what the Government was offering……

Today, Collins brought into the House a document she says the Department of Internal Affairs recently presented as the Government’s preferred option for water reform to 23 mayors and Ngāi Tahu.

"Why did the Department of Internal Affairs present as a preferred option to 23 South Island mayors and iwi a document proposing co-ownership of South Island drinking water," Collins asked Ardern while holding a document.

Collins pressed forward with her claim, again holding up the document while asking: "Is the Prime Minister now telling the House that this document here that was presented to 23 mayors and iwi and says 'owners are the Canterbury Councils and Ngāi Tahu who are responsible for appointing members to the JGG,' is that not what it says?"…..

Govt advances plans to transfer 50 per cent of South Island’s public water assets to iwi ownership - Collins 
National leader Judith Collins says several South Island mayors are concerned by the Government’s advanced plans to transfer 50 per cent of the island’s publicly-owned water assets to iwi ownership.

The Department of Internal Affairs presented the Government’s preferred option for water reform to 23 mayors and Ngāi Tahu, Collins said in a statement.

This new mainland water agency would assume ownership of all water assets and some council debt.

Collins said National was of the understanding that four mega-agencies will be set up across Aotearoa as part of the Three Waters proposal to manage water assets. The agencies would be similar to Auckland’s Watercare.

"This means councils that have invested ratepayer money in pipes, wastewater and drinking water facilities for decades would have these assets taken away," Collins said.....
