Limited bus services are due to resume on Thursday 3 March

Limited bus services are due to resume on Thursday 3 March 2011

Environment Canterbury is starting limited Metro bus and ferry services in greater Christchurch from Thursday March 3, which will operate free for two weeks.

Limited services will be offered for northern routes and for
western/southern routes between 7am and 7pm seven days a week. Eastern
surburbs will be serviced by Metrostar, the No.60 service and the
Orbiter. The poor condition of roads is limiting the number of services
that can be provided in eastern suburbs.

The northern services will operate from a terminus on Bealey Ave
(between Durham Street North and Montreal Street).

The western and southern services will operate from a terminus near
Christchurch Hospital (on Hagley Ave between St Asaph Street and
Riccarton Ave). Environment Canterbury staff will be based at both
locations to provide help and advice for people wanting to use bus
services.

A shuttle will operate between the terminus near Christchurch Hospital
and Bealey Ave so people can transfer between routes.

Bus services will allow more people to travel to access shops, medical
and support services, visit friends and family, as well as return to
work if possible.

The bus services will also help to reduce the number of cars on the
roads – particularly in the eastern suburbs – where significant
transport congestion is hampering access for emergency and service
vehicles.

Total Mobility services will continue to operate as normal with vouchers
available from the relevant agencies.

Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security: Inquiry Into GCSB Pacific Allegations

The complaints follow recent public allegations about GCSB activities. The complaints, and these public allegations, raise wider questions regarding the collection, retention and sharing of communications data.

“I will be addressing the specific complaints that I have received, in accordance with the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security Act 1996. But there is also a clear need to provide as much factual information to the complainants, and to the wider public, as is possible.”

“For that reason, I have decided not only to investigate the complaints but also to bring forward and expand the relevant parts of my ongoing programme of review and audit of GCSB procedures and compliance systems...” More>>

So New Zealand spied on its friends and allies in the Pacific – and has not only been passing on the results to the NSA, but has apparently passed on the details of the Pacific’s relations with Taiwan to our other best friends, the Chinese.
