NZCPR Weekly: Troubled Waters Ahead

Dear NZCPR Reader,   

In this week’s NZCPR newsletter we pay tribute to last week’s nation-wide protests and we highlight the dangers of Jacinda Ardern’s Three Waters plan for the unprecedented transfer of billions of dollars of ratepayer-funded assets to central government with control of fresh water given to Maori tribal interests; our NZCPR Guest Commentator Bruce Smith, the Mayor of the Westland District Council, shares his concerns about the Three Waters proposal; and our poll asks whether you believe local councils should hold a binding referendum of residents and ratepayers before deciding whether to opt in or out of the Government’s Three Waters proposal.
