Police

close

in on

‘drown

him’ case

suspects

• By Andrew King

POLICE APPEAR to be closing

in the youths who chanted

“drown him” during a brutal

assault of a teenager.

The 15-year-old was viciously

attacked by a group in Rolleston

after a fireworks display on

November 4.

They dragged him to a water

race and held his head under

water. Some in the group chanted

“drown him.”

The Star has learned police

have been given names of

suspects and private Facebook

messages of apology to the

victim. The four suspects are all

teenagers.

But police are refusing to

reveal where the investigation is

at.

All Detective Senior Sergeant

Mike Ford would say yesterday

was that it was “ongoing.”

Many people have posted about

the incident online, including

friends of the victim who believe

they know who the attackers

were, his mother said.

A friend of the family posted

a message on their behalf, which

received more than 600 reactions

and a number of comments offering

support and condemning the

attack.

“It was amazing to see how

many people came up to us,” she

said.

EDITOR’S

DESK

News.................................... 3-14

PETER BROWN is one of

Christchurch’s good guys.

On pages 16-18 today,

we profile Peter, who is the

strength behind the families

who lost loved ones in the

CTV Building collapse on that

awful February day in 2011.

Peter retired from CTV

about two months before the

quake, and was called in by

authorities on the day to help

with the rescue and recovery

logistics.

He knew the building and

everyone who worked at CTV,

and his knowledge was vital as

the hours and days raced by.

Peter, of course, lost many

friends in the quake. He

has been there since for

the families as they battled

through the commission of

inquiry and now wait to see if

criminal charges will be laid

over the collapse.

In our interview, Peter also

tells of the quirks of fate which

led to people either being in

the building or not when the

quake hit.

Sad stuff.

Twitter’s quake research role

Student

analysing

emotional

reactions

• By Bridget Rutherford

EARTHQUAKE-related Twitter

posts are being analysed to

provide a new way of gauging

how people are coping, and

whether they need more

support.

Lincoln University PhD student

Prerita Gupta is developing

a recognition algorithm to

identify emotions based on keywords

in tweets from 2010-2016.

So far, she has collected more

than 250,000 tweets as part of

the research, which is expected

to take up to two years.

The Complex Systems, Big

Data and Informatics Initiative

student said people experiencing

upheavals often turned to social

media to express their feelings,

especially Twitter.

She decided to research how

people reacted emotionally online

when earthquakes struck.

“I thought it would be interesting

to know which emotions

they have gone through and

to know the trend of emotions

when they feel minor or major

disasters.”

The algorithm gauges intense

reactions from people, and how

they are coping. An example is

a tweet such as “Sharp lil jolt felt

in this morning!!!. Forgot how

much I hate them.’’

Ms Gupta said the tool could

be used by psychologists as a

new way of gauging emotional

states. She said it could be used

as a decision-making tool to understand

the collective state of

a group affected, and to provide

them better support or assistance.

The data had geographical

locations, so they could see what

area was impacted the most, she

said.

“This information is very

useful for health providers in

examining the relationship

between emotions and the use

of anti-depressant medicines,

helpful for the Government

to plan which affected area

needs the maximum health

benefit and for social welfare

departments to understand the

level of support they should

provide to the affected party.”

Ms Gupta said traditional

approaches such as interviews or

surveys may not be the best way

to collect data, as it reminded

people of the experience and

could be traumatising.

Analysing Twitter posts was

non-intrusive, she said.

The Ministry of Health is also

investigating whether Facebook

or Twitter posts about illnesses

or symptoms could be tracked

to see if there is a trend in a

particular area.

It was also looking at whether

school absentees, employee

sick leave, over-the-counter

pharmacy sales, tissue sales or

Healthline calls could be utilised

in preventing the spread of

illnesses.

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

LEGIONNAIRES’ SPIKE

A spike in Cantabrians with the

potentially deadly legionnaires’

disease is being blamed on a

boost in the use of potting mix

for spring gardening. Canterbury

medical officer of health

Dr Alistair Humphrey said 10

people had been diagnosed with

the disease in the last week. Two

of them were admitted to intensive

care. The particular strain in

these cases, legionella longbeachae

bacteria, is found in compost and

potting mix.

NEW FUEL TANKS AT PORT

Two new fuel storage tanks

are being built in Lyttelton to

improve capacity for the South

Island. Mobil is building the

petrol and diesel tanks on George

Seymour Quay to be completed

in 2019. They will replace the

ones damaged by a landslide at

Mobil’s Naval Point facility in

2014. Mobil country manager

Andrew McNaught said it was an

important part of the fuel supply

chain in the South Island.

VILLAGE TO BE EXPANDED

Summerset Group has bought

a further 2.1ha of land to add

another 71 units to the $100

million Casebrook village which

is currently under construction

on Cavendish Rd. It says will

expand the village to more

than 340 units, a rest home

and hospital-level care, and the

Summerset’s first dementia care

centre in Christchurch.

RED ZONE OPTIONS

Regenerate Christchurch will

consider 1871 responses from

people and groups as it refines

options for the future use of

the 602ha residential red zone.

It consulted on 10 possible

combinations of land uses for

the area. Chief executive Ivan

Iafeta said common themes were

support for ecological restoration,

flatwater and whitewater

facilities and eco-sanctuaries.

Reintroducing residential

housing received more than 400

responses, but a proposed landswap

with Avondale and Rawhiti

Kitchen Rules: ‘We’re not so awful’

• By Bridget Rutherford

THEY HAVE been labelled the

villains of My Kitchen Rules New

Zealand and been called nasty,

evil and “the worst word ever.”

But Christchurch’s Heather

Andersen, 30, and Mitch Mac-

Donald, 39, say they are not the

“awful” people viewers think

they are.

On Monday, the friends will

cook in the sudden death round

against two other teams before

judges, Pete Evans and Manu

Feildel, decide who will go

through to the grand-final.

But it has not always been

smooth sailing for the former St

Andrew’s College students.

Ms Andersen, a sales manager,

said they were portrayed as

the villains because they had

stronger opinions than the other

teams.

“I know what I said, but only

half the sentence ever made it

into the episodes,” she said.

“I don’t mince my words, I’m

not a horrible person. If you ask

me a question, I’m going to tell

you what I think because you

asked me.”

She said they may have gone

in a “bit hot” in the first episode,

but they knew they could back

it up in the kitchen and would

score fairly.

“Social media went crazy.

People got really personal about

how we look. Luckily, I have a

thick skin, these people don’t

know me.”

Someone said she looked like

she had jaundice, while another

said she had a beard, Ms Andersen

said.

“People talk behind your back.

I was in Pak ‘n Save Northlands

and someone said ‘there’s that

b***h from MKR’.

“Mitch got called the worst

word ever on the golf course

in Queenstown. They get so

invested.”

Ms Andersen said she had no

regrets. She received backlash

after she made comments about

the other teams.

But she said they were all good

friends and the other teams

thought it was funny.

There’s an ongoing situation

about Wanaka, but Chris

[Wright] called me and they

are trying to get us down there.

Everyone talks every day.”

The pair say their cooking style

was modern Kiwi cuisine with a

twist. Ms Andersen specialises in

desserts, while Mr MacDonald

takes the lead cooking the

protein.

Mr MacDonald, a real estate

agent, said they were humorous

people and, at times, their comments

were misconstrued.

He said they were a bit surprised

at the backlash, but at the

end of the day, they entered a

reality television show.

“For me, I’m more protective

of my children going to school

and hearing things.”

Ruby, 7, and Chloe, 8, liked

helping him in the kitchen and

learning how to cook, he said.

PRESSURE: Mitch MacDonald

and Heather Andersen

scored 61 out of 90 in

Monday’s elimination cook off

against Auckland mates Jaryd

and Ben.

“If you see Heather and I on

the street or out, come and have

a chat to us. We’re not that bad,”

he said.

“Christchurch has been

through a lot. We are Cantabrians

and are very loyal. To cook

well and make Christchurch

proud is a very big thing for us.”

If the pair end up being

crowned champions, they have

not decided what they would do

with the $100,000 prize.

$50m meth bust

TWO MEN have been

arrested after a two-week

joint police and customs

operation, which saw 49kg

of methamphetamine

with a street value of

$50 million seized in

Christchurch.

Police discovered the

drugs as part of Operation

Grandeur and said it

was the largest seizure of

methamphetamine in the

South Island.

The drugs arrived into

the city in an airfreight

consignment sent from

Mexico on November 1,

concealed in a shipment of

safety lights.

There were 40 separate

packages of about 1-1.2kg

each, which have yet to

be further forensically

examined to determine

the exact weight of the

product.

Police said the seizure

has prevented $60.71

million of additional

community harm.

Search warrants were

executed at a number of

addresses in Christchurch

and Auckland.

Two Christchurch men

HUGE HAUL: Methamphetamine seized by police

as part of Operation Grandeur.

were arrested and appeared

in the district court

yesterday facing charges of

importing a class A drug,

and possession of methamphetamine

for supply.

Both were remanded

in custody to reappear on

Monday.

Detective Inspector

Corrie Parnell said if the

drugs had made it on to

the street, they would have

caused “significant harm”,

not just in Canterbury, but

across the country.

“Methamphetamine is

a destructive drug that

wrecks lives, breaks down

whanau and negatively

impacts on our community.

It takes enforcement

and a whole-of-Government

approach, along

with education, to reduce

demand and victimisation

caused by this drug,” he

said.

Detective Inspector

Parnell said drug use is a

driver of numerous other

crimes.

“Unfortunately, the

demand for illegal drugs

is fed by those who are

addicted and interventions

are required in order to

help these people limit the

harm they are causing to

themselves and others.”

Funeral home review cost $50k

• By Bridget Rutherford

IT HAS cost ratepayers more

than $50,000 for the judicial

review into a suburban funeral

home in Fendalton, prompting

calls for a budget to be used in

similar situations.

Independent commissioner

Philip Milne granted resource

consent for Bell, Lamb and Trotter

to operate a “funeral satellite

office” from a

house on Rochdale

St in April.

Residents

fiercely against

the plan formed

the Rochdale

Precinct Society

David East

and took the

battle to the

High Court for a two-day judicial

review last week.

Justice Susan Thomas has

reserved her decision.

City council head of legal

services John Higgins said it was

obliged to process resource consent

applications and be party to

a judicial review if there was one.

“So far the external costs

associated with judicial review

proceedings are $57,710.06.”

He said it did not include the

cost of last week’s judicial review

as the city council had not yet

been invoiced for that.

Originally, the city council

declined the application. But

Bell, Lamb and Trotter asked for

an independent commissioner to

rule on it.

It was approved under the

“home occupation” provisions

of the new District Plan, as Bell,

Lamb and Trotter managing

director Andrew Bell said he was

living there.

Regulatory performance committee

chairman city councillor

David East said the city council

did not budget for costs incurred

through resource consent appeals,

such as Rochdale St.

He said the city council was

looking into whether money

could be set aside in the long

term plan for those costs.

“We’re now looking at whether

we can increase the budget for

the building consent and resource

consent and enforcement

unit.”

Rochdale St resident David

Nicholls said it was now a waiting

game to see what Justice

Thomas’ decision would be

WAITING

Susan

her decision

on whether

house.

HUNTER

before the society decided on its

next step.

“We’ll just have to see.”

At last week’s review, the

society’s lawyer Prudence Stevens

QC said Mr Bell did not

appear to be living at the address

permanently, and it should have

been processed as a commercial

service activity.

Bell, Lamb and Trotter said

26 services for up to 10 people

would be held at the house, providing

a more “homely environment”

for people apprehensive

about funeral homes.

Rugby coach

complaint

dropped

• By Andrew King

A COMPLAINT about a

West Melton rugby coach who

grabbed a young Lincoln player

after an altercation on the field

has been dropped.

The under-14.5s coach Amanda

Tomlinson previously told

The Star she grabbed the player

by his collar after he kicked

someone from her team in the

mouth during a match in July.

A complaint was lodged with

the Canterbury Rugby Football

Union which investigated the

matter, but it has been dropped.

CRFU chief executive Nathan

Godfrey said he believes the

complaint has been withdrawn.

Ellesmere Rugby Union president

Stuart Boon confirmed

there will be no further action

against Ms Tomlinson.

Ms Tomlinson said she did

not want to make any comment

about the incident when

contacted yesterday, but said she

had been through hell.

Police have also dropped the

assault charge against her.

In July Ms Tomlinson said she

was upset a complaint had been

laid.

Have you checked your

underfloor repairs?

This is the sort of ‘repair’

we are finding.

Inner-city living: The pros and cons,

Last week, The Star

revealed a report

showing people don’t

want to live in high

density housing. Today

Bridget Rutherford

compares the cost of

buying in the central city

and the suburbs

FOR ABOUT $1.3 million, you

could buy a 964m2 property in

Northwood with five bedrooms,

three bathrooms, three living

areas and a spacious backyard.

Or, for the same price, you

could get a yet to be built innercity

apartment sandwiched between

Hagley Park and Victoria

St and less than a quarter of the

size.

Which would you prefer?

A study published in the Urban

Studies Journal by Canterbury

University transportation lecturer

Diana Kusumastuti looked

at the weight residents put on

buying a home, and what factors

were more important.

It found more people were

likely to buy a home in the city’s

outer suburbs because the properties

were larger, quieter, private

and often cheaper.

HANDY: This three bedroom, two-bathroom Dublin St home is for sale asking

for inquiries over $1,375,000.

have a goal of having

20,000 people living in the

central city by 2024. Post-quake

District Plan zone changes have

been made to encourage innercity

development.

Industry experts say it is a lifestyle

choice, and businesses need

a higher central city population

to succeed.

New apartments on the market

yet to be built could cost anywhere

between $300,000 to more

than $3 million.

Harcourts Gold senior sales

consultant Mark O’Loughlin is

selling a number of the central

city apartments.

He said there were about 160

apartments or townhouses either

under construction or being marketed

in the central city due to be

finished by the end of 2019.

Of those, about half were under

offer or had sold.

Mark O’Loughlin

Lianne Dalziel

Mr O’Loughlin said their

survey results had found the

biggest priorities for buyers

were the lifestyle, ease of living,

access to services and low maintenance.

The biggest market for apartments

were people aged between

60-85, who wanted a downgrade

or lifestyle change.

He said young couples who

were using their KiwiSaver grants

made up 25 per cent.

“Because a lot of younger people

today are more transient in

their jobs, they get married older

so they’re living with friends or

their partners for longer. Most

prefer the privacy of one or two

bedroom apartments.”

He said a lot of apartment

purchases had to be made off the

plans, but people were willing to

do that.

“Banks require 80 per cent of

the project to be pre-sold before

banks can provide funding for

the project.”

Near Hagley Park, Cranmer

Square and Victoria St would be

the expensive, larger apartments,

he said.

On the eastern side of the

central city near Latimer Square,

were the more affordable apartments

for younger buyers or

renters.

Mr O’Loughlin said there was

a broad range. He sold a one

bedroom apartment for $309,000

recently, and a two-storey 550 sq

m apartment on Park Tce for $5.5

million.

He said it was cheaper to live

in the suburbs. People could buy

a new four-bedroom home in

Rolleston or Rangiora for about

$600,000, he said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

and what you get for your buck

But to build an apartment

complex was a lot more expensive

to build because it had costly

engineering and building standards,

and requirements.

He said apartment maintenance

was cheap. Owners would

pay about $2500 annually to the

body corporate, which covered

maintenance and property insurance,

he said.

“It’s a lifestyle

choice.

We’re just

following the

rest of the

world.”

The central

city, Merivale,

Papanui,

Chris Wilkinson

Fendalton,

Riccarton,

LARGER: Homeowners could often get more space for their money in the outer suburbs, such as this five-bedroom Northwood

home for $1.2 million, or a Shirley three-bedroom home with a larger backyard for $359,000.

Addington and part of Linwood

were all classed as inner-suburban

areas, while the rest were

outer-suburban areas.

Trade Me Property figures

show the average asking price of

an inner-suburban property in

October was $573,950.

In comparison, the average

asking price of an outer-suburban

property was $467,650.

In the central city it was

$604,150, the figures show.

The East Frame, a Government

anchor project, is under

construction with 20 homes due

to be finished next year.

Originally, construction was

due to begin in October last year.

But it was delayed until April.

Eventually, the East Frame will

have about 900 apartments and

townhouses in the five blocks

between Manchester, Madras,

Armagh and Lichfield Sts.

They will range from between

$400,000 – $900,000.

First Retail managing director

Chris Wilkinson said there were

not enough living options for

people in the central city yet to

help businesses succeed.

He said businesses recognised

it was a “long game” in regards

to retail success, but many made

commitments looking at the

planned residential and tourism

growth.

“With the current hiatus

in development, there’s an

understandable anxiousness

among some retailers, hospitality

businesses and property owners

with exposure to these sectors.”

He said having a good balance

of people working, visiting and

living in the central city was “vital”

for long-term sustainability.

There needed to be demographic

diversity for “inner-city success,”

he said.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said the

research results were not surprising.

“We know that inner-city,

and particularly central city living,

will only appeal to certain

groups.”

She said it was interesting

people did not seem to mind

driving longer to get into town.

With that in mind, Ms Dalziel

said inner city living should be

targeted to those who valued the

benefits such as its proximity

to restaurants and the ability to

walk everywhere.

She said it had been “enormously

disappointing” the range

of properties had not yet been

developed as promised. Affordibility

was key, she said.

“Density can be countered by

quality design and great public

space. And we need a mix of

tenure – ownership, rental and

affordable options in both.”

Urban Edge valuer Natalie

Edwards said it was hard to

compare buying apartments in

the inner-city with properties

further out.

They’re two completely

different products. You could

buy a one bedroom apartment

for $600,000 in the central city.

There’s just a wider market for

the quarter acre section.”

A lack of car parking spaces in

apartment buildings could also

be a turn off for many buyers,

and anchor projects were not yet

complete.

“People aren’t traditionally

apartment dwellers, that

market is always struggled with

Kiwis.”

Authorities meet over water

First catch up

about water

supply since

Port Hills fire

• By Bridget Rutherford

AUTHORITIES have met to

discuss the city’s water supply

network for the first time since

February’s devastating Port Hills

fire.

City council reticulation and

maintenance manager Rob Meek

said the city council’s reticulation

team and fire and emergency

authorities met regularly

to discuss the network.

However, this was the first

meeting since the Port Hills fire

and the amalgamation of the

New Zealand Fire Service and

the National Rural Fire Authority,

he said.

“After the Port Hills fires, staff

felt it was a good opportunity

to catch up with the fire and

emergency team to talk about

our water supply network and

reservoirs along the Port Hills

and Christchurch in general and

with regard to rural firefighting.”

He said the senior fire risk

management officer and three

other members of the fire and

emergency operational team

were present.

They spoke about the various

chains of reservoirs on the Port

Hills, including the flat and up

the hills from Westmorland to

Taylors Mistake, he said.

The various water supply

pressure zones in Christchurch

were also discussed, as were

reservoir sizes along the various

chains.”

He said staff gave fire and

emergency authorities the water

supply schematic plans of the

pump stations and reservoirs

showing how they link to each

other, their elevations and sizes,

and pressure zone maps showing

where pump stations were.

“Fire and emergency already

has access to the Christchurch

water supply network geographic

information system.”

Mr Meek said there were no

gaps in the water supply system

and they would continue to meet

as they had in the past.

IMPORTANT: City council and

fire and emergency staff have

met to discuss water supplies

for the first time following the

Port Hills fire.

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER &

ANDREW KING ​

The two Port Hills fires started

on February 13 and later merged

into one, burning more than

1600ha of land and destroying

nine homes. Pilot Steve Askin

was killed when his helicopter

crashed near Sugar Loaf on

February 14.

Rural principal fire officer

for Christchurch and Selwyn,

Darrin Woods, said he helped

organise the meeting but did not

attend.

He said it was more about

highlighting areas where “there

could be some limitations” for

water supply.

Plan to ease

building

consent costs

• By Bridget Rutherford

NOT-for-profit organisations

could get a helping hand to pay

for building consents if city

councillor David East gets his

way.

The regulatory performance

committee chairman has asked

staff to see if funding assistance

could be provided for not for

profit organisations wanting to

build a facility.

“Sometimes not for profit

organisations have to raise funds

and some of the consenting

fees can be quite a challenge for

them. So we’re looking to see

if we can have a process where

there can be an application for

a rebate of some of those fees,”

he said.

“It’s probably going to

have to be on a case-by-case

basis.”

Cr East said it could be in

the form of a funding pool that

organisations could apply for

money from.

“A few years ago I was involved

in a project with North

Beach Surf Life Saving Club.

The building works were going

to cost $20,000, and it was $4000

in building consent fees. That

was almost quarter of the total

cost.

“When you think about

community groups having to

fundraise significantly for a big

project, on top of that they’ve got

a fair chunk of building consents

as well.”

Peter Brown

Helping those left behind from

Peter Brown retired two months before the CTV

Building collapsed in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, killing 16 of his former colleagues.

Bridget Rutherford spoke to him about waiting for

a prosecution, the moment he saw the damaged

building, and helping the survivors and victims’

families

Can you tell me what your

role with CTV was?

I was the technical engineer.

CTV were looking for people to

help and my daughter had been

working as a camera person and

she said ‘my dad will fix it’, so

dad ended up fixing it. That was

in 1997, in Manchester St, and

from there I really just stayed in

that same role. We shifted all the

gear to Madras St in about 2010

and I did all the technical stuff. I

retired in December 2010.

You went to the site on

February 22, 2011, after the

earthquake struck didn’t you?

I was out in Oxford when the

earthquake struck because I’m

on the trust of Youth With A

Mission. But I got a call telling

me to come in. I was already on

the way. I was at the site helping

the police, drawing diagrams of

the building and where people

might be. We were trying to find

out how many people were in

the building at the time. From

there, I had a relationship with

the families and had meetings

with them in the weeks after

that. Then we had the funerals,

I spoke at many of the funerals.

This went on right up until June

until the coroner had declared

the ones who were missing

were dead. That was hard. I was

involved in the Royal Commission

giving names of people

who could be involved to help

with that and I testified. Then I

got involved with moving CTV

to Wairakei Rd and later into

Venture Pl then Lincoln Rd. I’m

helping with the Quake Families

Trust now, I’m not on it, but I go

along to the meetings.

When you arrived at the site

and you helped police, was it

like a switch flicked?

Yes it was. We lived in

Christian communities in

Christchurch, Oxford, and the

Marlborough Sounds, and we

were working with people who

needed support.

I think that prepared me for

a lot of the stuff that happened

in the earthquake. I was used to

dealing with people in all sorts of

situations. There’s a verse in the

Bible that says you were born for

such a time as this, and I often

think about that.


The Star Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Thursday November 16 2017 17

the CTV tragedy

I WAS the only one at the time

who knew all the families, apart

from Maryanne [Jackson]. So I

was that go-to person. Now we

have a tea or a get together every

month or two.

When you were driving in

from Oxford, did you know

what you would find?

I knew the building was down

and things weren’t good. The

satellite dishes on the roofline

were on the ground, and the

CTV sign. It was a horrendous

scene. People started ringing me

then because they knew I was

there. I would have been in the

building – I didn’t go out for my

lunch. I look back and think, if

I hadn’t retired before, it could

have been worse. Maryanne

had 5000 practice runs, she ran

out of the building every time

there was an earthquake. The

thing that saved her, though,

was she went to do the dishes

and the phone rang and, instead

of going around the back of her

desk, she answered over the

front, so she dropped the phone

and ran out the door. There are

a lot of miraculous stories. The

sales manager at the time, his

wife used to work at QE II and

someone was in trouble and

she jumped in the pool and got

them out. She rang Malcolm

[Harris] to ask him to bring in

some spare clothes. That was at

12.30pm. Rhys [Brookbanks]

was going to go out and do a

story, and Emily Cooper said

‘don’t worry I’ll go out and do it’.

Just things like that. People feel

that survivor guilt at times, they

feel why did I survive?

Did you help identify some of

the items from the building?

Yes, we were trying to identify

all the stuff that came out

of the building and peoples’

belongings. There was about

two containers of stuff, initially

they put all the stuff in the gym

beside the CTV Building. The

night we were there, it affected

your touch, your smell and

even your sight. On the street it

looked a bit like Armageddon,

because on the coffee tables

there were half-drunk cups of

tea and that sort of thing.

Why did you decide to retire

in 2010?

I’m an old bugger. I had stayed

on longer than I wanted to

because I went on an outreach

trip to China, I said to Murray

[Wood] if you let me go away for

two months I’ll stay on until the

end of the year.

How long did it take for CTV

to get back up and broadcasting

after the earthquake?

We got the first signal back on

air through Maori TV in about

April. But we got the channel

back up and running by about

June or July. A lot of people were

prepared to help, a lot locals and

a lot of my contacts like Telstra

and Kordia and we’ve got to be

grateful for that.

Was it helpful to try and get it

back up-and-running sooner?

It helped us all in the sense

you felt you were honouring

the ones who died, you were

carrying it on, and it kept

peoples’ focus on something

else.

In your job you were in

charge of fixing things. Do you

remember any big breakdowns

over the years?

The news went to air most of

the time. There were close times.

I know there was one where we

had a few seconds to spare. But

that’s part of television. We had

fun. We used to do football,

basketball and school sports.

It’s amazing the stuff we filmed

when I look back.

Our People

Supporting quake survivors, victims and families

Where did you work before

CTV?

I was in the post office from

1962-76 as an engineering associate.

We used to design telephone

exchanges, but that’s all changed

now. Then I went off and did

23 years of social work helping

people.

What do you do in your spare

time?

I’m still on the trust in Oxford.

At CTV, I was always fixing everyone’s

cellphones. I still do that

on the side and I’ve always got

my head in a computer. I spend

a lot of time with my family. My

wife Christine died in 2015 and

I’ve got six kids, 18 grandchildren

and two great grandchildren,

so they keep me occupied.

They live all over. My kids take

me fishing sometimes. I do a lot

of swimming, I try and go a couple

times a week – but sometimes

it happens; sometimes it doesn’t

(laughs).

How did you and Christine

meet?

There used to be a lot of church

dances. This one, it was a fancy

dress dance, I was in a skeleton

costume, or something like that.

We had known each other from

youth groups and stuff. We got

engaged on April Fools Day

and married on Guy Fawkes. I

were allowed back on the site for a remembrance ceremony.

wondered about the method of

that, I think it was for my sake so

I didn’t forget those big days.

And you’re still waiting

on a decision regarding the

investigation into the collapse

of the CTV Building?

The evidence has got to be

far more thorough. The Royal

Commission was designed to

find out what went wrong and to

fix that.

The criminal investigation

is to convict someone. We’ve

just got to wait until they make

that decision. I’m hopeful

there will be something out

before Christmas, I’d rather it’s

thorough. If they do go ahead,

this will be hard for the families

involved and just as hard for the

people who survived because

they will have to give evidence

and you’ve got to relive the

whole thing. It’s hard to move

on in Christchurch, there’s

always something to do with

the earthquake every day in the

news.

What do you think of the new

landscaping plans for the CTV

site?

I think it’s good. We’ve always

wanted it to be a reflective site

where people can go and just sit.

It’s got the cherry blossoms for

the Japanese. We had to fight for

it to begin with but, once Canterbury

Earthquake Recovery

Authority got hold of it, it was

good.

Do you find earthquakes

frightening?

No, unless there’s a really big

one. I won’t say you get immune

to them. I remember when my

daughter visited, there was a

rattle and she got under the

doorway and the rest of us just

sat there and said ‘it’s only a 4.5

don’t worry’.

•A police spokeswoman

said she could not give a

date for when a decision

would be made on whether

charges would be laid for

the collapse of the CTV

Building. Police said the

investigation is in its final

stage.

Christchurch’s new Memorial Avenue Gateway Bridge

is open to traffic but we are not finished yet!

There will be speed restrictions and other traffic management on and around the bridge

over the next few months while the project team lay the final road surface and carry out

other work to complete the Russley Road Upgrade.

Please drive with extra care and pay close attention to the signage to ensure you are in

the correct lane to get to your destination. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Defining a sense of national identity

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Gregor Paul

FOR YEARS individual All

Blacks have spoken about their

pride in the jersey and been clear

about what they were prepared

to do to wear it.

The stories of sacrifice are

legendary, the commitment to

the cause beyond question. Yet

for all the emotion connected

with the jersey and all the desire

to wear it, there has been no unified

sense of what it means and

represents.

Being an All Black has meant

so many different things to so

many people and while virtually

everyone who has played for the

national side has been aware of

the significant history attached

to the team, there hasn’t previously

been a defined sense of

national identity tied up in the

team’s culture.

This was the conclusion

reached by former coach Graham

Henry and his assistants Wayne

Smith and Steve Hansen when

they took over running the team.

What drove that home was a

difficult day New Zealand rugby

endured at Ellis Park in 2004.

Not only were the All Blacks

well beaten by the Springboks,

but they came away from Johannesburg

with a sense they were

missing something.

The Boks had lifted emotionally

that day and the All Blacks

coaches felt that had much to do

with President Nelson Mandela

being in the stands.

The presence of Madiba had

been a powerful, galvanising

force, and seemingly the Boks

and the 55,000 fans at Ellis Park,

had a defined and clear sense of

national identity. South Africans

appeared to know who they were

and what the Rainbow Nation

was all about.

The All Blacks coaching

panel wanted something similar.

They wanted to instil a unified

understanding of what being an

All Black meant and use that full

weight of history and the legacy

of the jersey to guide, inspire and

bind.

UNIFIED:

The coaching

panel led by

Steve Hansen

wanted to

instil a unified

understanding

of what it

meant to be an

All Black.

PHOTO: GETTY

IMAGES

That process began 13 years

ago, but stepped up in early

2015 when Hansen decided

that if his side were to win

a consecutive World Cup,

they would need a greater

appreciation of themselves, who

they were and what exactly they

were representing.

We really challenged ourselves

prior to 2015 to identify who

we were because we used to

talk about it all the time,” says

Hansen.

“So we asked the question

what is it [our identity] – who

are we? As a result of that we

worked out that we weren’t really

that sure. We spent a lot of time

putting some stuff together and

challenge ourselves to ask some

questions.

“And really you know it is our

history and what that history has

chucked that up over the years

and who we want to be.

“When you are asking to identity

yourself as an All Black you

have to go really specific because

not every New Zealander is

going to play for the All Blacks.

So you are actually representing

the people that have and all the

people that are supporting you.

“What it is we are identifying

with has to come from our past

and that includes good, bad and

indifferent. It is so interwoven

with being a New Zealander, you

can’t really separate it.

“You can then look at other great

New Zealanders and even some

poor ones and ask if we are going

to be like that. It is an opportunity

to enhance what has gone before

us. I think we are very clear.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Wearing the All Black jersey with pride

•From page 21

The reason Hansen is adamant

the players are clear about identity

and what it means to play for

the All Blacks is because management

make it that way.

One of the key virtues Hansen

has instilled in his players is

gratitude – to respect and cherish

the opportunity they have been

given. And to feel like that, the

players need to know the scale

of the privilege they have been

afforded.

“Nothing is assumed and we

have an induction-type process

that we do with all the new guys

and there are various ways we do

that without going into it,” says

Hansen.

A big part of the current

climate is helping players understand

how their personal history

intertwines with the team’s

legacy.

“I think if you go ask a young

child in New Zealand who plays

rugby, nine times out of 10 they

are going to say they want to be

an All Black,” says lock Luke

Romano.

“From the time you are a young

bloke, to when you are in your

20s you want to be an All Black.

It is no different for me or any

other guy in this team. When you

UNDERSTANDING: Dane Coles, scoring here against France

last weekend, says the question of identity has been one

pushed to the front of his mind.

put on that All Blacks jersey it is

something you have been chasing

for 20 years and you don’t think

you are ever going to get there.

“But you have got there and

that just shows what it means to

New Zealanders because there

is that history in that jersey and

that want to get there and not

everyone gets there. So that is

what makes it so special - when

you get the jersey it is a chance to

play a test for your country and

you don’t want to let the jersey

down. It has so much history and

PHOTO: GETTY IMAGES

so much winning culture that

you don’t want to be the one that

inflicts a loss on it. “They are the

big driving factors . . . it is not just

a bit of black cloth with a silver

fern on it.”

For teammate Dane Coles, the

question of identity has been one

that has been pushed to near the

front of his mind since he made

the squad in 2012. It was maybe

not something he had considered

prior to making the team, but he

understands now that the more

the team understands themselves,

the better they are likely

to play.

“We know our identity,” he

says. “Who has worn this jersey

what they have done in it and

all the people who have worn it

before us. You learn you are only

a caretaker of the jersey. You

don’t own it. You try to leave it in

a better place than it was before

you wore it.

“It is huge because it is about

identity, what you play for and

what this team represents. I think

you are not going to learn all that

on your first tour.

If all the games the All Blacks

have played this year, none have

brought to the fore so pertinently

the question of national identity.

The French test on Armistice

Day, in the country where

hundreds of thousands of New

Zealanders gave their lives in two

world wars, creates an emotional

backdrop.

Adding to that is the fact that it

is 100 years since Originals captain

Dave Gallagher was killed in

action in World War 1. The test,

more than most, asked the All

Blacks to think deeply about who

they are.

“I think it is because it is easy

to tell that story because it is in

your face,” says Hansen. “And

it is in our face because on your

jersey is a poppy and the first

question you have is why? What

is the poppy. Why the poppy? Because

the first thing that grew on

the battlefields was poppys and a

lot of New Zealanders were killed

on those battlefields. And that is

significant because if you are going

to be true to your identity you

are going to know that, you are

going to know your history.”

I think if you go ask a young

child in New Zealand who

plays rugby, nine times out of

10 they are going to say they

want to be an All Black

– Luke Romano

Says Romano: “He and 13 of his

mates died at Passchendaele. It is

100 years since it happened and

that is certainly a big factor for us

to do that jersey pride. Because

they wore that jersey with pride

as we do now and what they gave

up for their country, they made

the ultimate sacrifice. They gave

up their life to make sure we

could have freedom.”

The journey of discovery will

never end for the All Blacks but

they have travelled deep within

themselves since 2004 to find out

who they are. – NZ Herald

Fire rages, homes at risk

The benefits of inner-city living

New research says

people are not keen on

I WAS asked whether recent

research on people’s preferences

for buying in Christchurch’s

outer suburbs creates a challenge

for our city’s goal to have 20,000

people living within the four

avenues.

I should remind people that

this goal was set before the

earthquakes.

A vibrant and dynamic central

city was always part of the vision

of the Greater Christchurch

Urban Development Strategy,

and inner-city living was always

part of making that happen.

Should we have been able to

hit the fast-forward button after

the earthquakes? You bet. Does

this research change this? No it

doesn’t, but it highlights the need

to target inner city living to a

much more diverse group than

revealed by the research. And

that means affordability, quality

urban design, great amenities

and plenty of public space have

to be part and parcel of the new

central city.

It should be remembered that

the research focused on homeowners,

and I think it’s important

to have students, renters and

people in need of a supportive

living environment. Diversity is

important to the city.

What I found most interesting

in the research was that people

Lianne Dalziel

don’t seem to mind long commutes

to get to town or to work

if they were getting a better

property for the same money –

for example, a three-bedroom

townhouse in the city as opposed

to a four-bedroom house with a

backyard in the outer suburbs.

That suggests to me that the

trade-offs need to be better defined

and we should target inner

city living to those who value

the benefits for example walking

distance to work, theatres,

restaurants, parks, inner-city life,

recognising that ‘inner-city’ living

isn’t for everyone.

One of the observations in

the article is that future studies

should investigate ways to make

high-density living attractive

through the careful and skilled

design of buildings and neighbourhoods,

that address people’s

needs for quietness and privacy,

while living in a mixed-use

neighbourhood.

Christchurch’s District Plan

has, for several decades, contained

policies to promote higher

density development particularly

around natural hubs – shopping

centres, major bus routes and

parks.

I think it is a good thing to

have density in the areas where

these things are within walking

distance. But there are downsides

when density is not accompanied

by quality urban design that

reserves amenity and that is the

challenge we are seeking to address.

•If you want to ask Ms

Dalziel a question, email

mayor@ccc.govt.nz. Put

Reader’s Question in the

subject line

inner-city high density

living, in spite of plans to

try and encourage it

Thomas Blair – I built and

have lived in the inner city

within the four avenues for more

than 20 years and would not

consider choosing to live in the

suburbs. The advantages are so

numerous that they outweigh

any so called benefits of the

suburbs – quietness, space,

safety etc. Extra time gained

through no lawn mowing,

garden maintenance and

travelling time is a bonus, so

central city living for me.

Police have been given

names of the suspects

who chanted “drown him”

during a brutal assault on a

teenager Rolleston

Perawai Hurunui – I agree

that is so wrong and, yes, I hope

they get there punishment, but

for those who are saying an eye

for eye, you guys are just as bad

as the bullies. What is the lesson

there? If you give them the same

treatment as what they gave that

boy your saying it’s okay to do

that.

Melanie McLean – Makes

me feel sick reading what this

innocent young man endured.

The disgusting act of his perpetrators

is sickening to say the

least. They should be charged

with attempted murder, regardless

of their ages, they surely

knew the seriousness and potentially

fatal outcome of their

horrific actions.

Fiona Jackson – How

disgusting that poor kid who

was attacked. I felt sick when I

heard about this, they need to be

thrown into big boys jail and see

how tough they think they are.

So glad to hear the young man

is recovering, sounds like a talented

kid and I hope he doesn’t

let this hold him back.

Vanya Cheri – You know

what – an eye for eye, I say. Will

teach thugs a lesson and they

will know how it felt for their

victim.

Urgent need for EQC inquiry

THIS WEEK, it was a real

pleasure to visit Kaikoura on

the one year anniversary of last

year’s devastating earthquake.

As someone who’s been

through it myself, I know it’s a

day of mixed emotions. There’s

grief for what has been lost, a

sense of hope for the future and

a bit of awe when you reflect at

what you and your community

have got through together.

As Minister responsible for

EQC, I spent much of the day

talking to people on the ground

who are still going through the

EQC and insurance process.

I wanted to reiterate our

Government’s support for them

and to let them know we are

doing everything possible to help

Kaikoura recover and help them

move forward.

Overall, we are making good

progress in getting people

settled. At the end of October, 91

per cent of all claims have been

assessed, with 65 per cent of all

building claims, 92 per cent of all

contents claims and 93 per cent

of all land claims being settled.

But for those whose claims

are still outstanding, the stories

I heard were all too familiar

– people feeling trapped and

unable to move on with their

lives.

As Minister, my priority is

getting those people sorted as

quickly as possible. That’s where

the work of the Residential

Advisory Service is so important.

THe RAS is a special service

set up in 2013 that helps people

navigate insurance and EQC

claims – often acting as case

managers to explain the process,

advocate for people and bring

the different people involved

together.

It’s helped resolve thousands

of claims since it was established

in 2013. What I heard loud and

clear from people yesterday

is that the RAS has been an

absolute godsend. One woman

told me she’d been at her wits’

end before she’d spoken to them

and that their help had kept her

going.

In the next few weeks, we’ll be

looking at ways to make sure this

important service is still available

for people. For me, these stories

also reinforce why we so urgently

need an independent inquiry

into EQC – to learn the lessons

from these events and making

sure we do better for people in

the event of future disasters.

Our Government knows we

owe it to the people who have

been through so much to make

sure their experience is heard

and the system is improved.

That’s why we’ll be working on

getting that inquiry under way as

soon as possible.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

HOW TO BARBECUE

PERFECT RIBEYE STEAK

Ingredients

Ribeye steaks, at least an 1.5

inches thick

Olive oil

Salt

Fresh ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat your grill to high heat.

If you have a sear burner and a

steak that is more than an inch

thick, get one side of the grill

going at about medium-high in

case you need to cook it through

a little more after the sear.

Remove the ribeye steaks from

their packaging and rub them

down with some olive oil and

then coat a generous amount

of salt and freshly ground black

pepper. The olive oil provides

just enough fat to help the salt

and pepper create a great, caramelised

crust.

Clean and lubricate your grill

grates with some cooking oil on

a rolled up piece of paper towel

(using tongs, of course).

Place the ribeye steaks on the

hottest part of the grill and then

stand ready with the tongs.

At this point, you are on flareup

watch. The fat dripping off of

the steaks could create a flare-up.

If a flare-up occurs and doesn’t

go away in a few seconds, simply

use your tongs to slide the steaks

away from the open flame until

the flame dies down and then

move them back over the heat.

Continue to grill with the lid

open for about 4-6min.

Flip the steaks over onto the

other side, still over the hottest

part of the grill.

Grill the ribeye steaks for an

additional 4-6min on the other

side, lid open, for a medium-rare

delicious steak.

Remove the steaks from the

grill and allow to rest for 5min

before serving. The resting

period is important so that the

juices don’t run out when you cut

into the ribeye, so be patient.

AVOCADO AND

CARAMELISED PINEAPPLE

SALAD

Ingredients

2 Tbsp Brown sugar

½ Pineapple, peeled

2 Tbsp Butter

3 Avocados, firm but ripe

½ Red onion

100g Blue cheese, creamy

½ Red chilli

2 cups Salad leaves, washed

Dressing

1 Orange, zest and juice

1 Chilli, finely chopped

1 tsp Ground cumin

4 Tbsp Avocado oil

1 to taste Salt & freshly ground

pepper

Directions

Prepare all the ingredients.

Core the pineapple, then cut

the flesh into 3cm cubes and

sprinkle with the brown sugar.

Put a frying pan on to heat, then

add the butter. When the butter

is starting to sizzle, add the pineapple

pieces and fry over a gentle

heat until they are caramelised

on all sides.

Cool. Cut the avocados into

2-3cm cubes. Break the cheese

into small pieces and slice the

onion paper-thin. Slice the chilli

into thin pieces. Make the dressing

by shaking all the ingredients

together in a jar.

To serve, line a flat serving

plate with the fresh salad leaves.

Toss the avocado, pineapple,

cheese, chilli and red onion

together on top of the leaves.

Drizzle over the dressing and

serve at once.

A stylish

lusitanica

hedge behind.

Left – This

is the winter

view of the

showing how

deciduous

hedges have

structure and

interest even

in the quiet

season.

• By Sue Witteman

HEDGES ARE an important

structural element in your

garden.

If you are considering planting

a hedge, in an ideal world, you

will have done your digging a few

months before planting day. This

allows the soil to settle before

you plant rather than after – it’s

amazing how much fluffy soil can

sink – and this gives the roots

more purchase in the settled soil.

You can then top up the soil level

if you need to.

It’s best to plant when the soil

is naturally moist i.e. in autumn

or end of winter/spring. But if

this is not possible, you can plant

any time of year but will need to

put in a bit more effort – avoid

waterlogged or frosty soil though.

If planting when dry, dig your

trench or holes, fill with water

and let drain. ‘Bubble’ your hedge

plants in a large bucket of water

so that there are no dry spots in

the root ball, plant, and water in

well.

Before planting, tease the

roots out or, if root-bound, slice

the bottom off the root-ball

and spread out the roots at the

bottom.

You may need to cut the new

roots up the sides if they are really

congested – roots that are circling

around the root ball never

untangle themselves. I am quite

hard on root balls.

Sometimes the top of the plant

also needs a trim. Cut it back by

a third to a half – I know, I know,

you don’t want to cut anything off

– but the aim is to have the plant

bushy down low, and this training

needs to start at the beginning.

If your plant is already suitably

bushy, then just nip the ends to

keep that bushiness continuing.

If you are planting when it’s

windy – especially if it’s a hot, dry

wind or a cold wind, then you can

cover the hedge with windbreak

cloth – use bent wire, tent pegs,

stones or what you have to hand

to weigh it down.

Keep the watering happening;

to see if it needs water, dig a small

hole with an implement to see

how moist it is.

I will just note here that

watering is crucial at this early

stage and, as usual, a deep water

is required rather than just a

lackadaisical sprinkling.

Mulch after planting – keep the

mulch away from the base of the

plants though.

For smaller hedges, such as

buxus, plant approximately 25cm

apart. For medium-sized hedges,

such as escallonia, plant about

60cm apart and for bigger hedges,

such as Portugese laurel, plant at

1m.

Hedges can be planted in a

single row or a staggered double

row (useful if a really dense hedge

or windbreak is required).

If you are planning on putting

in a longish hedge, then it would

pay to order your plants in

advance from a nursery, as come

planting time they may all have

been snaffled up.

This also means that they

will all be all the same size and

age, which is desirable. While

it is tempting to go for the

biggest plants – as when you

want a hedge, you want it now

– I suggest you go for a smaller

grade which will not only be less

expensive, but will also settle in

and start growing quicker.

If you are putting in a

deciduous hedge such as

hornbeam, then it is cheaper to

buy bare-rooted plants that come

into the nurseries in winter.

Warning – on no account let

the roots dry out before planting

happens, get the plants in the preprepared

soil as soon as possible.

hedges growing

In terms of choice, the

main considerations are

what height you want

the hedge to finally be,

do you want deciduous

or evergreen and what is

suitable hedge material for

your area.

As with planting trees, do

believe that innocent little

plant may indeed grow in

to the monster it says on

the label, and maybe choose

an alternative plant.

Also check what width

the hedge will attain – an

important consideration if

the hedge is by a flower bed

or vege garden (beware of

shade or hungry roots).

Think about whether

you want your hedge to be

formal (closely clipped) or

informal (lightly clipped or

not clipped at all). Hedges

can be also made into

interesting shapes such as

‘cloud’ hedges or have bits

cut out like crenulations,

or they could be multicoloured.

If you do opt for a

two-toned hedge, check

that the growth-rates of

the two varieties are the

same so that your hedge

grows evenly. Use your

imagination to create your

own unique hedge.

Find out if the hedge you

want to plant is a fast or

slow grower, so you know

what time frame you are

looking at to achieve your

mature hedge.

Most hedges don’t get

thought about much in

winter, but keep an eye on

your evergreen hedges as

they can get surprisingly

dry in winter – have a

scratch around every so

often to check whether this

is happening.

Feed your hedges at the

end of winter to set them

up for the growing season

to come. I use a granulated

slow-release fertiliser. I

don’t add any fertiliser

when I initially plant the

hedge, it doesn’t need it

until the roots get going

properly so wait a year until

you start feeding it.

Depending on the variety

you have planted, you

may be cutting the hedge

anything from one to six

times a year.

Usually the faster the

growth, the more it has to

be clipped. A rule of thumb

is to cut your hedge after

the first flush of growth in

spring when the leaves and

branchlets have started to

harden a bit. You can do

it again if needed in early

autumn. If you have a fast

grower such as Teucrium or

Escallonia, you will need to

cut more often so just do it

when you need to.

If your hedge is a

flowering one such as

a camellia, then prune

immediately after flowering

has finished. When cutting

your hedge, keep your

hedge wider at the bottom

than at the top – this lets

light into the base and helps

avoid bare patches.

Where I can, my choice

of hedge plant will be one

that can be cut back hard if

needed. I like the insurance

of being able to renovate

and re-shape a hedge that

may be in need of remedial

work.

If you do have a hedge

that has grown too big or

looks ungainly, you can

whack it right back, feed

and water it, and begin

retraining it with clipping

or nipping.

Nothing beats home-grown cucumbers

• By Henri Ham

I OFTEN hear gardeners

say nothing beats eating

home-grown fruit and vegetables.

In fact, I say the same thing

myself. And if I had to pick one

plant that this really rings true for

– I would pick cucumber.

The cucumbers we have grown

in the last few seasons have been

crisp, juicy, cool, delicious and

would, no question, beat storebought

cucumber by miles any

time.

So, if you only plant one

vegetable this season, though

technically a fruit, I strongly recommend

you consider cucumber.

And don’t stop with just telegraph

cucumber (the long, skinny one

most commonly found in the

supermarket), try growing a

selection of cucumbers. Lebanese

has tender, edible skin with sweet,

mild-tasting flesh.

Short-green is great for growing

in smaller gardens as it produces

a lot of fruit but only requires one

third of the space of other cucumbers.

And apple looks much

like an apple (opposed to the long

look of a telegraph cucumber)

and it grows really nicely along

the ground.

Once you’ve got your plants, it’s

time to find a place to plant them.

They like a warm, dry and sunny

spot to grow in. And most varieties

will need a bit of space.

SUCCULENT: Apple

cucumbers will grow along

the ground and are a good

companion plant. Telegraph

cucumbers (right) will need to

be staked.

Telegraph and short green

cucumbers will need to either be

staked or grown next to something

they can grow up – like

a trellis. Plant these varieties

around 1m apart so each plant

has its own trellis/area to spread

over.

Apple cucumbers will happily

grow along the ground and

are a good companion plant for

zucchini as they like the same

conditions.

For a regular-sized bundle with

three seedlings you’ll need an area

around 2m x 2m and each seedling

should be planted about 1m

apart. I like to imagine I’m planting

them in the shape of a triangle

and each seedling goes on one of

the points of the triangle, this way

the plants are grouped together

but have enough room to spread

out.

Dig in some compost or

leftover potting mix into the soil

to ensure its friable (breaks up)

before you plant.

To encourage fruiting it’s a

good idea to plant your cucumbers

(and zucchini) near some

bee-attracting plants like lavender

or borage. Doing this will help

ensure the bees pollinate your

plants and as a consequence the

fruit develop.

If the plants aren’t pollinated

properly the flowers will fall off

and no fruit will develop. If you’d

like to be really sure they’re pollinated,

try touching the pollen

on each plant with a paintbrush

– this will spread the pollen from

one flower to the next.

I was once told by someone

that you could do the same with

an electric toothbrush, minus the

toothbrush head. I’m yet to try

this approach but would love to

hear from anyone who has.

In around 10 to 12 weeks you

should be able to enjoy the cool

and juicy taste of home-grown

cucumbers.

Many different varieties of tasty basil

• By Henri Ham

THERE ARE a couple of plants

where growers regularly report

that they find a little tricky

to grow. Coriander is one.

Watermelon is another. And the

one that always surprises me is

basil.

Basil is such a great plant to

have on hand. And there are so

many different varieites available

to try, I thought this month I’d

share my advice on how to get the

best out of your basil and move it

off that ‘tricky to grow’ list.

Basil loves the heat. So my first

piece of advice, is look for the

sunniest spot in your garden and

that’s where you should put your

basil.

If the sunniest spot at your

place is in your home (for example

by a kitchen window), then

try growing your basil there. Basil

grows really well in pots and can

easily be kept inside.

When you’ve found the right

spot to grow it just dig a little hole

and plant. If you’re growing it in

a pot I recommend using a good,

general potting mix.

My second tip for successful

basil is, pick it regularly. If

you don’t pick it quick enough

it might start to go to seed. If it

does, just pick off any developing

flower heads to encourage it to

stick to leaf growing.

Next, basil needs water but its

very important you don’t overwater

it. Water it when you plant

it and then water it regularly to

encourage lots of leaf growth. But,

and here’s the important advice,

let it dry out between waterings –

don’t let it stay wet.

And my last piece of advice is,

don’t just stick to sweet basil – try

growing cinnamon, Thai, lemon,

or one of the other varieties. A

good way of sampling the other

varieties is by getting a mixed

basil bundle which will include a

selection of some of the different

basil varieties.

If you do all of the above, basil

will quickly move to your list of

favourite, low-maintenance, easycare

plants.

EASY-CARE: Cinnamon basil

has a distinctive taste.

Cosmopolitan Montreal – a city of style

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Mike Yardley

THE ISLAND metropolis of

Montreal prides itself on being

Canada’s most eclectic and cosmopolitan

city, a city of style and

elegance with a cracking culinary

scene, impressively bilingual and

where arts and culture thrive.

All of this is wrapped within

the venerable bones of a heritageproud

city where the past and

present overlay each other.

It shivers through winter but

shines in summer, with locals

flocking to the patio bars and

cafes that festoon Montreal with

fabled al fresco exuberance.

A great starting point is down

in Place Royale at the Museum of

Archaeology and History (Pointeà-Callière

Museum.) Hop in the

lift and head underground to the

foundations of the city’s original

French settlement of the 1640s.

Revealed in 1989 following an

archaeological dig, this striking

museum has preserved the

foundations, walls and unearthed

artefacts of the 17th-century settlement,

all brilliantly illuminated.

Before wandering through the

remains of the six buildings, a

stirring multi-media show whisks

you through a potted history of

Montreal’s development, its highs

and lows over 375 years. It’s a

dramatic, poignant and uplifting

narration of the city’s back-story.

Place Royale is situated in Old

Montreal’s port district (Vieux-

Port De Montreal) gracing the

banks of the St Lawrence River.

Founded by the French in

1642, the cobbled harbourside

area of Vieux-Montreal stretches

back from the river for about

eight blocks, with hundreds OF

magnificently preserved heritage

buildings.

The most spectacularly sigh-inducing

street is Rue St Paul. I took

to the water on AML’s sightseeing

cruise, which provides superb

skyline views as you drift along

the storied St Lawrence River.

You’ll pass by St Helen’s Island

which was the site of Expo 67, and

where many expo landmarks still

linger. The United States’ expo

pavilion was a geodesic dome, like

Florida’s Epcot. It’s now home to

the Biosphere Museum.

You’ll also pass La Ronde, the

staggering amusement park built

for Expo 67 and still beloved for

its bone-shaking thrill rides like

Le Monstre, the world’s highest

wooden roller coaster. No thanks.

In honour of Montreal’s 375th

birthday this year, the iconic

Jacques Cartier Bridge, crossing

the St Lawrence, has been given a

dazzling touch-up, with thousands

of cutting-edge lighting

connections wrapped around its

ironwork.

The innovative digital light show

follows the seasons and has become

a new nocturnal riverside draw.

Further down the river, you’ll

get a fantastic view of Montreal’s

Olympic Stadium, one of the

most expensive stadiums ever

built in the world.

Mont-Royal backdrops downtown

Montreal and this 230m

hill literally gave rise to the city’s

name. Draping much of this lofty

mound is Parc du Mont-Royal,

a sprawling green space clad in

oak, maple and poplar trees. This

beloved urban oasis, which offers

great respite from the concrete

jungle and summer humidity,

was designed in the 1840s by

Frederick Olmsted, the same

fella responsible for New York’s

Central Park.

PROUD: (Far left) – St Helen’s

Island the site of Expo 67. The

United States’ contribution is

a geodesic dome. (Left) – The

iconic Jacques Cartier Bridge,

touched up for Montreal’s

375th birthday.

GETTING THERE:

•I booked my domestic

flights in Canada through an

award-winning travel search

engine, Skyscanner New

Zealand (skyscanner.co.nz).

It’s a fast and trustworthy

way to find cheap flights. The

more than 60 million global

travellers using Skyscanner

each month can’t be wrong.

It compares hundreds of

airlines across millions of

routes and is an excellent way

to score the best available

deals, no matter where you

want to go. Skyscanner also

has price-saving features like

‘Price Alerts’ which notify you

when the airfares increase or

decrease. What I particularly

like about Skyscanner is that

when I found the flights I

wanted and clicked to book,

Skyscanner links you directly

to the airline or travel agent

so there’s no hidden charges

or fees. In addition to sharppriced

flights, Skyscanner also

offers accommodation and

vehicle hire deals too. www.

Largest cast yet for Chch director

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NATALIYA Oryshchuk may

have set up her own successful

theatre company in the city and

had her original plays recognised

internationally.

But she has never had the

chance to direct a cast as large

as the Canterbury Repertory

Theatre’s new production of

Arsenic and Old

Lace.

The play has

a cast of 13

members, which

is one of the

largest used for

a 20th century

play. It was an

Nataliya

Oryshchuk

opportunity

Oryshchuk

could not resist.

The material

itself is a very strange comedy

with a dark twist and it is just my

cup of tea,” she said.

Written in 1939, the show is

about a successful theatre critic

who learns his aunts have been

poisoning old men for years.

The play was made famous in

in 1944 when it was turned into a

Hollywood film starring British-

American actor Cary Grant.

But Oryshchuk said she felt the

film was not Grant’s best work

and it was a little over the top,

she said. Her goal was to make

the humour more subtle.

“We found together with the

cast that sometimes it is funnier

when the characters are very

genuine about what is going

with their reactions,” Oryshchuk

said. The show finishes

off another successful year for

Oryshchuk.

Earlier this year, her original

play Token of Friendship made

the shortlist for the international

competition, Pint-Sized Plays, in

TROUBLE: The cast of the Canterbury Repertory Theatre’s new production of

Arsenic and Old Lace.

the United Kingdom.

Oryshchuk described it as her

most successful original comedy

show inspired by her experiences

of what it is like to be an immigrant

in New Zealand.

Born in the Ukraine, Oryshchuk

moved to the city about 15

years ago to escape the difficult

social and political situation

brewing in her country.

She said her show is based on

conversations she has had with

people who don’t understand

what it is like to be an immigrant.

“Particularly all these stereotypes

around immigrants

from Eastern Europe, especially

females with all the ridiculous

Russian bride assumptions.”

In 2012, Oryshchuk set up NO

Productions Theatre Collective,

which has since staged many

original theatre productions.

Although her most successful

play is a comedy, Oryshchuk is

a fan of Gothic material and is

working on a new play based on

Canterbury’s pioneering Deans

family.

Her theatre company is also

planning a new initiative to help

bring Canterbury playwrights

and actors together so they can

evaluate their own work and

use it in their professional development.

The initiative will be

launched next month.

•Arsenic and Old Lace will

run at Elmwood Auditorium

from November 22 to

December 2. To book tickets,

One more show for pop-up concert series

THE FINAL show for the year

from the Christchurch Pop Up

Concert Series is set to be staged

at the Isaac Theatre Royal.

Scottish-born urban, folk,

blues, jazz singer-songwriter,

Isabella Miller Bell, also known

as Ma Bell, will bring her pop-up

acoustic cabaret, Le Cabaret De

La Vie, to the theatre to finish the

series for the year.

The pop-up series is a six-year

artist-led music project launched

in 2011 to support performers

after the quakes.

Since 2011 the series has staged

more than 40 pop-up events

from sold out theatrical cabarets

to free outdoor concerts.

Funded by the Creative

Communities Scheme, the series

was started at the Redcliffs

Tennis Club.

For the final show Ma Bell will

bring together the vintage crème

of the crop from the acoustic

roots realm to tell the story of the

blues.

It will feature guitarists

including Jon Maxim Hooker,

James Wilkinson, and Radius

duo, Harry Harrison and Justine

S.

Jazz artist John Bevin, along

with other guest performers, are

lined up to take part in the show.

Andrew Lepper, owner of BPC Cars in

Yaldhust Road, Avonhead has been in the

motor trade industry since 1989, and over that

time has gained a wealth of knowledge and

experience.

“I started out at Team Hutchinson Ford, where I

worked for 10 years before going into business

for myself in 1999,” Andrew says.

“Up until recently I had a business partner but

he has now moved on to other adventures.

“Since launching the business we have sold

thousands of cars to people all over Canterbury

and New Zealand. There’s a lot of repeat

business and customers are always referring

their friends and families.

The business still trades under the same name,

but I am now the sole owner, while my righthand

man Jake is responsible for making sure

the yard always looks good and the cars are

clean and tidy.”

BPC Cars deals mostly in cars in the $4000

to $10,000 price range; however, they are also

well known for having a good selection of preowned

Fords, Andrew says.

“We predominantly stock Fords and Toyotas

with a good mix of New Zealand New and

Japanese imports, which I personally select

while in Japan.”

Andrew says he is a proud MTA member and

has always adhered to the values of the Motor

Trade Association.

“Buying a car can be a daunting experience,

so I’ve always tried to make it as relaxed as

possible – it should be an exciting and fun thing

to do!

“We arrange vehicle finance through Motor

Trade Finance in Hornby, as they are only a

few minutes away. They seem to have some of

the most competitive rates and they are great

people to talk to. We will also happily deal

with any other finance company that potential

customers may currently use.”

Andrew has recently installed a new automatic

coffee machine at the office, with customers

welcome to help themselves to a takeaway

coffee while they browse around the yard.

Away from the business, he follows Canterbury

Rugby and the All Blacks.

“I also enjoy watching motor sport and have

been involved with standardbred horse racing

at a club and ownership level.

“I also love live music and over the past five

years or so I have attended many concerts with

my three daughters, who are 16, 14 and 12. I also

have two sons, 10 and eight.”

BPC Cars is located at 198 Yaldhurst Road.

Holden covers bases with Astra sedan

• By Ross Kiddie

WHEN I look back through the

long list of vehicles I’ve owned,

it’s interesting to note that only

two of them weren’t sedans.

I guess that is some kind of an

indication that I like the booted

car, more so when it’s a sport

sedan.

It would be an exaggeration to

classify Holden’s new Astra as a

sport sedan, but it certainly is the

latter. And full marks to Holden,

and Opel, for making the Astra

sedan available in New Zealand,

it joins a hatchback and wagon

range here and I certainly hope

it does well against the market

trend towards sport utility vehicles.

Until I drive the wagon,

which also appeals to me, I’d go

as far as to say the sedan is the

pick of the bunch.

One of the reasons is that its

extra load space is generous –

445-litres against 360-litres in the

hatch, at the same time losing

nothing in vehicle dynamics; in

fact, I think it’s handling is just

a little better, a few kilograms

towards the rear improves balance.

At the other end, the Astra

sedan utilises much the same

driveline as its stablemates, with

six-speed manual and automatic

gearbox options.

The test car was the

latter and it was coupled to a

four-cylinder, turbocharged

engine of 1399cc. Holden rates it

with 110kW and 240Nm power

outputs.

These figures are healthy

enough in themselves, but it

you also take into account the

areas where they are maximised

(6500rpm and 2400rpm all of the

way to 4000rpm) there is a solid

flow of energy all through the rev

band.

I particularly like the way the

engine picks up the gaps as it

flows from gear to gear; the shifts

are smooth, and with the low

and close ratios under immediate

acceleration there is a feisty type

of feel from beneath the throttle

HOLDEN ASTRA: Sedan fits well in comprehensive range.

pedal.

That’s also the case at all speeds,

when the journey necessitates

gentle throttle pressure, the Astra

also feels quite at ease.

For interest’s sake, the Astra

1.4 turbo will accelerate from a

standstill to 100km/h in 8.7sec,

and it will complete a 80km/h

to 120km/h overtaking time of

6.7sec.

On the subject of figures,

Holden claims a 5.8-litre per

100km (48mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage average which is quite

bold, but I would suggest quite

achievable nonetheless. During

the five days the evaluation car

was in my possession, the display

graphics were constantly listing

around 8l/100km (35mpg).

That figure is thanks to low

fuel use at highway speed –

4.5l/100km (62mpg) at a steady

100km/h cruise, with the engine

turning over very relaxed at

1800rpm.

I took the Astra sedan on a hill

road I don’t often use, one which

incorporates a lot of slow speed

tight corners, the endless twists

and turns certainly gave good

GENEROUS: The Astra sedan’s load space accounts for

445-litres.

indication of the Astra’s handling

dynamics.

Providing the grip in the first

instance are sport specification

and low profile Kumho tyres

(225/45 x 18in). By sheer nature

of their profile they have a wide

tenure with the road and high

grip levels. The tyres also help

promote strong steering feedback

and accurate turn-in.

Astra hatchback models have

the benefit of a Watts Linkage

system across the rear axle to

enhance stability; sadly, the sedan

doesn’t get that, but nevertheless,

suspension movement allows just

enough wheel freedom to absorb

the big hits along with arresting

body movement.

The entire handling feel is balanced

thanks to spring and damper

rates which are firm, but not so

much that they spoil the ride.

• Price – Holden Astra sedan

• Dimensions – Length,

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.7.sec

• Fuel usage – 6.3l/100km

The evaluation car was an LTZ

model which means it is high

spec and lands here at $38,490.

There are two other variants –

LS and LT – which are priced at

$29,490 and $34,490 respectively,

the base specification non-leather

model would probably be my

choice.

Nevertheless, the LTZ wants for

little, it has all the kit you’d expect

from a range-topper such as full

leather trim with heated front

seats, electric sunroof, Apple Car

Play and Android Auto, satellite

navigation and an extensive safety

package which easily meets the

five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program criteria.

Holden, on both sides of the

Tasman, is undergoing substantial

change with the recent closure

of the Australian manufacturing

operation.

That being the case, the company

is reinventing itself and has

a broad plan to fulfil its obligation

to the car buying public. The

Astra is just one part of an extensive

line-up of models which will

land here in the next year or so

– all badged Holden and landing

from many different global

plants.

If you add in a tempting threeyear

free service and roadside

assistance programme recently

announced by Holden New

Zealand, it would make a lot of

sense to buy into the brand, and

its good cars like the Astra, in

all body styles, that are there to

tempt.

The biggest range of vehicles in one location

Tongans set for quarter-final

• By Gordon Findlater

CANTERBURY fans will get

the opportunity to witness the

biggest talking point of the

Rugby League World Cup on

Saturday – Tonga.

The Tongans will look to continue

their hot run of form in a

quarter-final against Lebanon at

Christchurch Stadium (AMI).

For many, Tonga have brought

a refreshing change of unpredictability

to the tournament

which, only a few months ago,

looked destined to once again be

dominated by Australia with the

Kiwis and England looking to

throw a spanner in the works.

Queensland Cowboys star

Jason Taumalolo shocked the

league world by announcing he

would snuff the Kiwis to play for

his nation of birth, Tonga. Soon

after, fellow Kiwi hopefuls Manu

Ma’u, Sio Siua Taukieaho and

David Fusitu’a all followed his

lead.

If they beat Lebanon, Tonga

will likely face England in the

semi-final. After what transpired

in their match against the Kiwis,

it wouldn’t be wise to bet against

them going all the way to the

final in Brisbane on December 2.

First, though, they must get

past the Lebanese, who will come

in well-drilled by coach Brad

Fittler following their 0-34 loss to

Australia. There is no doubting

they have the quality to produce

an upset with eight players who

have NRL experience, including

skipper Robbie Farah, Mitchell

Moses, Tim Mannah, Michael

Lichaa, Alex Twal and Reece

Robinson.

Saturday, the awards celebrated

the achievements of a range

The award reflected Longo’s

commitment and dedication

to both the Football Ferns and

Pride over the last decade. She

brought up her 100th cap for the

Football Ferns on the recent tour

to the United States.

Longo says she was surprised

and humbled to win the award,

MOORE PARK will be the scene

Eight combinations from

Headland lives in the South

Australian desert and takes

more than 20 hours to travel

one-way to race at four different

tracks.

Many of the Australian contingent

will come to New Zealand

looking for revenge. Several

of the Kiwi team have ventured

over to Australia before, and the

Kiwi team ended up standing

on the top step of the podium in

Tamworth, New South Wales.

New Zealand will be led by

Derek and Aaron Ramsay, of

Home

& Property

What you need to know

when you’re buying to let

Buying a property is always a big deal,

whether you’re planning to live in it

yourself or not. Nearly 40 per cent of

New Zealand property buyers already

own multiple properties, according

to recent data from CoreLogic, but

that doesn’t make buying one as an

investment any less of a bold move.

If you’re thinking about buying an

investment property it’s crucial to do

all your homework about the ups and

downs of both investing in property

and becoming a landlord. There’s a lot

to take into account, such as the tax

implications if the property is re-sold

within two years (or five, when the new

Government implements its plans).

Some councils levy rates differently

depending on how a property is used,

which can add significantly to your

costs, and insuring a tenanted property

can cost more because rentals are more

subject to damage.

When you’re buying a property that

is vacant you are generally entitled to

one opportunity to a final inspection

of it before settlement (when you pay

the balance of the money to the seller

and get the keys). This inspection is to

make sure that it’s in the same or better

order as when you viewed it and agreed

to the sale. If you’re buying a property

with sitting tenants this process is more

difficult and can raise all sorts of issues.

To make sure you can still conduct a

final inspection, we recommend asking

your lawyer to ensure there is a ‘final

inspection’ clause inserted in the sale

and purchase agreement before you

sign it. If you’re buying a property by

auction, you will have to negotiate this

with the seller (through

the real estate agent)

before the auction takes

place. You’ll also have

to make this a condition

of the sale if buying by

tender or deadline sale,

if not agreed prior. Your

lawyer can help you

navigate this process.

You may also wish to

seek advice about getting

a methamphetamine test

included as a condition

of the sale.

E: mike@starmedia.kiwi

A change of ownership also doesn’t mean

you have the immediate right to ask the

current tenants to move out. Generally

speaking, under the Residential

Tenancies Act tenants must be given at

least 42 days’ notice to leave a property.

If you want the property to be empty

when you take ownership, you may

need to negotiate a longer settlement

period with the seller to enable this. If

you’re taking over the property with the

tenants in place for the remainder of

their tenancy agreement, the previous

owner must let the tenants know that

you are the new owner and give you a

copy of the existing tenancy agreement.

When you take over ownership, you

must tell the tenants your name and

contact details, and advise them how

their rent is to be paid. If someone else

is managing the property for you, let the

tenants know who to contact in case of

any issues.

Most tenancies require a bond to be

paid as security in case of any damage or

unpaid rent. When a tenanted property

is sold, the seller cannot make a claim

to any bond unless this is done before

the property changes hands. It’s a good

idea to check with your lawyer that any

bond conditions are spelled out in the

sale and purchase agreement.

Lastly, don’t forget to factor in that

buying an investment property also

requires you to become a landlord with

a long list of responsibilities to your

tenants. It’s your investment, but it’s

their home.
