Help us shape the future of the Rangitāiki River

Help us shape the future of the Rangitāiki River

17 June 2014

The Rangitāiki River Forum is drafting a document that will set the direction on how to improve the health of the Rangitāiki River and its tributaries over the next 50 to 100 years. The Forum wants those with an interest in the River and its catchment to have their say in what that future looks like and the pathway to get there.

Rangitāiki River Forum Chair, Bronco Carson, explained.

“This is an important document that will guide us and future generations on how we manage this incredible resource.

“The Rangitāiki has a lot of significance for different communities for a wide range of reasons from traditional food gathering, to farming and recreation. We want to hear about the future that people see for the river and help us build a path to get there,” Mr Carson said.

Several public open days are planned:

Murupara, Wednesday 18 June 2014 10am – 2pm at the Murupara Motor Camp on Main Road.
Edgecumbe, Friday 20 June 2014, 10am – 2pm at the Riverslea Shopping Mall, 14 College Road.

Gordon Campbell: On The Mana-Maori Party Deal

If the self-interest involved wasn’t so blatant, the electorate deal between the Maori Party and Hone Harawira would be kind of poignant. It’s a bit like seeing the remaining members of Guns’n’Roses or the Eagles back on the road touring the nostalgia circuit… playing all the old hits of Maori unity and kaupapa Maori politics.

Can the two surviving Maori Party MPs (one electorate, one list) credibly work together with the old firebrand who split up the group years ago, and still hope to rekindle some of that same old magic? More>>
