We will be stronger

Mayor Lianne

Dalziel says

the world will

remember how

Christchurch

responded to the

terror attacks

THE TRAGEDY that has unfolded in

our city has touched all of us.

No one has been unaffected and

our city will never be the same.

But we will not be defined by this

one act of hatred. What we will be

remembered for is the way we have

rallied together in the wake of these

tragic events and shown love and

compassion towards each other.

The chalk messages of support

drawn on footpaths, the ever-growing

pile of flowers, soft toys and candles

placed outside the mosques and in

Rolleston Ave are the images the

world will remember of Christchurch.

What I will remember too is the

simple gestures of kindness – the

baking dropped off to welfare centres,

the donations that have poured in,

the hugs people have given to show

their support and shared grief. And

the way that our amazing people

have come together to honour the

victims of Friday’s shootings and to

show their intolerance for hatred and

violence.

This weekend there will be more

opportunities for people to come

together and to send a clear message

to the world that we are a city that

welcomes people from all cultures,

religions and backgrounds. That

we are a city that cares and stands

united.

There will come a time when we

come together as a city, and a nation,

with our Muslim communities. First

we must give them time to bury their

loved ones and a time to mourn. In

the meantime, the students who led

the Strike 4 Climate are now leading

a March for Love, which will begin in

North Hagley Park at 10am on Saturday.

And on Sunday night there is

the Remember Those Who Lost Their

Lives 15-3-19 vigil, a citizen-led vigil

in North Hagley Park from 5-7pm.

BEAUTIFUL HEART: Canterbury University student Manar Ibrahim said the shooter

who took her uncle’s life has only brought the community closer together.

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

“ALTHOUGH HE did so

much damage to us, he broke

so many hearts and ruined so

many lives, he has kept us all

united.”

That is the message from

19-year-old Manar Ibrahim

about the accused gunman

who took her uncle’s and many

of her close friends’ parents’

lives in the terror attack at the

Deans Ave mosque on Friday.

The Canterbury University

civil engineering student told

The Star she is not scared and

the shooter has only brought

the community together.

“He was trying to divide us

up . . . he thought he would

be the first person and many

more would follow but he has

put us in union. He has kept us

together”.

Miss Ibrahim said this shows

through the donations and

support flowing into the Muslim

community from people

of all different religions and

backgrounds.

She said while many of her

friends did not know a lot

about the Muslim religion she

could see how it had hurt and

upset them.

Miss Ibrahim was at Canterbury

University when she first

heard the news of the attacks.

“My reaction was dad, I was

screaming dad because I knew

he was in there.”

Soon after the news broke

she saw the live broadcast of

the terror attack online.

“To me they were innocent

people going to pray . . . all I

could really remember when I

saw the video was the one guy

who passed away saying hello

brother (to the shooter).”

“To me, in my eyes, that is

what Islam is, we do accept

everyone. There is no hatred

from us towards him.”

Since the attacks, Miss Ibrahim

has been keeping herself

busy by volunteering at the

crisis centre set up at the former

Canterbury Horticulture

Centre in Hagley Park.

“It helps me to be of any use.

Sitting at home the night it

happened, I felt so helpless.”

She intends to go back to

university today to ensure

she doesn’t get behind in her

course. While Miss Ibrahim

was born and raised in the city,

her parents moved from Egypt

in 1993.

She said when she was growing

up she went to the Deans

Ave mosque and would go as

many Fridays as she could.

“All the people in there

we all knew each other . . .

they are still my family in

there that passed away,” Miss

Ibrahim said. On Monday,

Miss Ibrahim spoke at the

university’s Band Together

service, which more than 4000

students attended. She went on

to share the powerful speech

by a Muslim woman who goes

by the Facebook name Jinghan

Naan and runs a blog The

Radiant Muslim. Ms Naan’s

open letter best summarised

how the Muslim community is

feeling, Miss Ibrahim said.​

Father and son buried

THE FIRST two people to be

buried after last week’s mosque

attacks were a father and his son.

Khaled Mustafa was 44 and

Hamza Mustafa was 15. Hamza

was a pupil at Cashmere High

School and was compassionate

and hard-working, according to

the principal Mark Wilson.

Hamza was an excellent

horse rider who aspired to be a

veterinarian, Mr Wilson said.

Hamza’s younger brother

Zaed, 13, sustained gunshot

wounds to the leg in the attack.

Mourners at Memorial

Park Cemetery in Bromley

yesterday carried the bodies to

a freshly dug gravesite, where

hundreds gathered around to

watch.

Some were invited to scoop

handfuls of dirt on top of the

bodies.

Authorities spent four days

constructing a special grave at a

cemetery which is designated for

Muslim burials.

The families of those killed

had been anxiously awaiting

word on when they could bury

their loved ones.

It is expected all of the victims

of Friday’s terror attacked will

be laid to rest at Memorial Park

Cemetery. More burials were

scheduled last night.

Sheik Taj El-Din Hilaly,

of Sydney, travelled to

Christchurch to attend or lead

some of the funerals.

Through a translator, he said

he felt compelled to support the

grieving.

A nationwide lockdown on

mosques has been imposed until

Monday, which Hilaly said had

upset Muslims whom he had

visited in Auckland.

POLICE commissioner

Mike Bush has commended

his “courageous” officers who

arrested the alleged gunman

Brenton Tarrant 21min after

they were alerted while he was

on route to another attack.

Mr Bush said it took 5min and

39sec for police to be armed and

on the scene ready to respond to

the attack. In 10min the armed

offenders’ squad was on the

scene.

“In 21min the person now

in custody was arrested from

when we were first notified to

when we intervened and he was

arrested, away from further

harm from the public,” Bush

said.

“We strongly believe we

stopped him on the way to a

further attack. Lives were

saved.”

The time line of events for

Friday’s attacks, which killed 50

Police continue to guard

mosques across the country.

Meanwhile, police have

formally released the first five

names of those killed in the

shootings yesterday.

They are:

•Haji Mohemmed Daoud

Nabi (male)

•Mohsen Mohammed Al

Harbi (male)

•Kamel Moh’d Kamal

Kamel Darwish (male, of

Jordan)

•Junaid Ismail (male)

•Mucaad Ibrahim

(male)

people and wounded another 50,

was about 40min.

Tarrant was arrested by

two officers on Brougham St,

following the shootings at both

the Deans Ave and Linwood

mosques.

Mr Bush said

this was “absolutely

an international

investigation.”

It involved New

Zealand police, the

FBI, Australian police,

and Five Eyes partners.

“To build a

comprehensive picture

of this person we will

put before the court.”

Mr Bush also

confirmed yesterday there was

just one attacker.

“A focus [of the investigation]

is to figure out if anyone else was

supporting him in any way. We

are still conducting that part of

MOURNING: The first burials were held at Memorial Park

Cemetery in Bromley yesterday.

Gunman had another target

the investigation.”

They were not looking at

anyone specifically.

At Tarrant’s next court

appearance, at the High

Court on April 5, there would

“undoubtedly be

more charges,” Mr

Bush said.

“We are working

towards, as you

can imagine, a

considerable number

of the most serious

charges.”

Regarding the

other people charged,

Mr Bush said one

was a lone man who

appeared at one of

the cordons with a firearm, and

the others were a couple – a man

and a woman.

The woman had been

released, while the man

had been charged with a

Mike Bush

firearms offence.

“We do not believe they are

related to the attacker in any

way,” Mr Bush said.

Mr Bush said there were

120 people involved in the

identification of victims process,

involving forensic experts from

overseas, with the focus of

“reuniting victims with loved

ones.”

While for police, the No

1 priority was victims and

families, on behalf of the chief

coroner it was to ensure absolute

accuracy in the identification

process.

The other responsibility was

prosecution.

“We must prove the cause

of death to the satisfaction of

coroner and judge. You cannot

convict for murder without that

cause of death.”

INJURED: Wasseim Alsati

with his daughters. Alin is on

the left.

‘Please pray

for me and

my family’

THIRTY PEOPLE who were

injured in the terror attacks on

Friday remain in hospital.

Two people have been

discharged since Monday.

However, there are still eight in

a critical condition in intensive

care.

This includes four-year-old Alin

Alsati who was shot up to three

times. She is currently in a critical

condition in intensive care at

Starship Hospital in Auckland.

The pre-schooler, who turns

five next month and should have

been starting school, has been in

critical care since Saturday.

Her father, Jordanian barber

Wasseim Alsati, was gunned

down beside her as they

worshipped at the Deans Ave

mosque.

Mr Alsati is now in a stable

condition at Auckland City

Hospital. He posted a video on

Facebook from his hospital bed

on Saturday asking friends and

family to “please pray for me and

my daughter.”

Canterbury District Health

Board chief executive David

Meates said people injured in the

mosque were a priority.

“We will be continuing to

postpone planned surgeries for

some time to come in order to

free up theatre space and surgical

teams. We apologise to anyone

who may have their surgery

postponed, but know they will

understand the extraordinary

circumstances,” he said.

Mr Meates said it was a

possibility that outpatients could

also be postponed.

“Most appointments at

Christchurch Outpatients are

going ahead as planned. If your

appointment has to be postponed,

we will contact you directly. We

are prioritising the time of the

clinicians needed to care for those

injured in last Friday’s attack.”

Insight into capture

• By Barry Clarke

AN ANTI-TERRORIST squad

leader involved in hunting

and shooting David Gray at

Aramoana has given an insight

into what would have happened

in the minutes leading up to the

capture of the alleged mosque

gunman.

Speaking to The Star yesterday,

Mike Kyne said the two officers

who apprehended Brenton Tarrant

in Brougham St on Friday

could have taken the easy way

out – and shot him.

Their credibility and moral

compass was such that they did

not do that. I was gratified these

two constables

did

not resort to

killing him,”

he said.

They

could have

killed him

and no one

Mike Kyne

would have

cared. If it

was overseas

he would have been dead.”

Mr Kyne, led one of the police

anti-terrorist squads sent in

to hunt down Gray after his

murderous spree in the Otago

coastal settlement of Aramoana

in November, 1990.

Gray killed 13 people including

Port Chalmers police sergeant

Stewart Guthrie, the first officer

on the scene.

The following day Gray

emerged from a bach firing

wildly at Mr Kyne’s squad as they

cleared the area. Police returned

fire and Gray was mortally

wounded.

Mr Kyne said the two constables

who captured Tarrant would

have had been only seconds to

make life and death decisions on

Friday.

Police were operating under

standing orders which would allow

them to shoot to kill.

The constables had been training

with the armed offenders

squad at The Princess Margaret

Hospital on Friday afternoon

when the shooting spree began.

The squad was mobilised and

they headed in different directions

trying to find the gunman.

They were heading into a

very active and confused situation.

The gunman had travelled

at speed to Linwood (from the

Deans Ave mosque) and was now

mobile again.

The pressure would have been

ramping up. Everything is happening

at high speed,” he said.

The two officers travelled from

The Princess Margaret Hospital

to Brougham St looking for the

suspect.

Mr Kyne said by this stage

police would have had a registration

number and description

DANGER: (Above and below) – The moments when two police officers apprehended

Brenton Tarrant on Brougham St.

of the vehicle the gunman was

travelling in.

The two constables would

be aware of this. The passenger

would be talking to the driver,

telling him to turn here, turn

there.

“In that car the two guys

would only be concentrating on

the facts, the car rego, the make

and the fact they have a moving

offender.

They would be talking and

assessing options if they found

the vehicle. The boys would have

been thinking a million miles an

hour. ‘How are we going to deal

with this when we meet him’.

They would have made a commitment

that if they found him

they would have to stop him.

“You factor in the danger to

the public in how you do this,

and Brougham St is busy.

They would have considering:

‘If we get close enough do we

shoot him?, do we shoot his tyres

out?’”

The two constables decided to

ram Tarrant’s vehicle to a stand

still.

“Once that happens the decision

has been made. Everything

now is going to happen in what

could even be a half a second,”

said Mr Kyne.

They got out, armed with a

pistol and high powered rifle.

Again, they have split seconds to

make decisions.

Then one the officers then saw

explosives in the vehicle, heightening

the danger even further.

He rushed back to the police

vehicle to alert other officers on

their way, but then lost sight of

his partner. He then returned to

Tarrant’s vehicle to support this

partner.

They would have been

yelling at him to surrender;

making instant decisions

whether they needed to shoot or

not – we’re talking a few seconds

here only.

“Everything they would have

done is based solely on what is in

front of them at that time. They

would have had no fear, that

doesn’t come into it. You don’t

have time.

“It’s like when someone who

can’t swim dives into the water to

save someone. They just do it.”

Mr Kyne said the explosives

in Tarrant’s vehicle were “just

another hazard that had to be

dealt with.”

There’s no fear. You are

completely in the zone. Their

minds would have been crystal

clear. They would have been

talking to him (Tarrant).

‘Where’s the guns,’ demanding

he show his hands, telling him

to surrender. Then they went in

and grabbed him, away from

the bomb, handcuffed him and

apprehended him. Then they have

a crime scene. They wouldn’t have

touched the car and they would

have kept people at bay.

“That’s when you look at each

other (partner) and say ‘Holy

s**t!’

The heart slows down, and

then it starts to sink in what

you’ve actually just did. They

probably had a beer that night.”

Mr Kyne was involved in many

dangerous life and death incidents

during his police career.

Aramoana was one where he

was lucky to survive.

Hard up against a polite garage

wall, Gray burst out of the bach

front door several metres away,

firing wildly.

The wall was peppered with

bullet holes, but the rounds miraculously

missed Mr Kyne.

“How I survived I have no idea.

We had no option but to return

fire when Gray came out shooting

at us.”

Gray took a number of bullets

and was mortally wounded.

“But after he was secured we

administered first aid. That’s

what NZ Police do. We believe in

justice and fairness. No different

to the two guys on Friday.”

Gray later died in an

ambulance.

Ardern visits Cashmere High School

A TWO-MINUTE silence

will be held tomorrow to

commemorate the one-week

anniversary of last week’s

massacre.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern

made the announcement during

a visit to Christchurch yesterday.

In a separate event, state

broadcasters Radio NZ and

TVNZ will also play the Islamic

call to prayer.

Two minutes’ silence was chosen

over the usual one-minute

because of the magnitude of the

tragedy; a two-minute silence

also took place to commemorate

the Pike River explosions in

2010.

She confirmed 30 of the 50

bodies of those who died had

now been returned to their

families.

Many families have expressed

frustration at the length of time

it has taken for bodies to be

returned, and Ardern said she

shared that frustration.

That had nothing to do with

a lack of resources, she said, but

the complex process of identification.

She added that she wanted to

look at the international and domestic

thresholds that needed to

be met for formally identifying

dead bodies.

She also responded to reports

that Islamic State had called

for reprisals to Friday’s attack,

saying that the New Zealand

Muslim community had only

expressed “a rejection of extremism,

violence and hate”.

Before yesterday’s press conference,

Ms Ardern met with police

officers who were first on the

scene at Masjid Al Noor and

had to secure the mosque as well

as give first aid to the critically

injured.

She also met St John’s first responders

and thanked them for

their service on New Zealand’s

“darkest day”.

“I have no doubt you saved

lives,” she told them.

In the morning Ms Ardern

visited Cashmere High School,

where she was welcomed by a

passionate haka.

Cashmere High lost year 10

student Sayyad Milne and year

12 student Hamza Mustafa on

Friday.

Hamza’s father Khaled was

also killed. Hamza and Khaled

were the first of the deceased

from Friday’s shooting to be put

to rest today.

School in

yesterday

At the school assembly, Ms

Ardern shared an embrace with

Bri, a 13-year-old year 9 student,

who opened the question and

answer session by asking her:

“How are you?”

“I am very sad,” Ms Ardern

replied.

Asked about the gunman during

the session, Ms Ardern told

students to focus on the victims.

“You know some of the young

people who lost their lives on Friday.

It’s their names and stories

that we need to keep telling. It’s

them we need to honour.

“If I can request one thing,

don’t say his name, don’t dwell

on who he is.”

She said it was everyone’s responsibility

to fight racism.

Ms Ardern praised a vigil that

was held on Monday in Hagley

Park and co-ordinated by Cashmere

head boy Okirano Tilaia.

Ms Ardern said social media

could be used as a force for good

and referred to the fact that

thousands of students knew

about the vigil through social

media.

“Never underestimate the

power of just sending a message,

looking out for someone, performing

a haka. There is power

in that.”

But she also cautioned the

students about the perils of social

media, and dozens of hands shot

up when she asked the students

if any of them had had negative

experiences online.

“Racism breeds extremism . . .

I alone cannot do that by myself.

I need help from every single one

of us.

“Let New Zealand be a place

where there is no tolerance of

racism, ever.”

She told the students that help

was available, if needed.

“It’s okay to grieve, it’s okay to

ask for help.”

Face to face with the killer: He

ESCAPE: Khaled Al-Jammali gets a kiss from his son Mahmoud. His other son Hamoud and

daughter Tala are just as pleased to have their father home. PHOTO: ALAN GIBSON

KHALED AL-JAMMALI came

face to face with the killer in the

Masjid Al Noor on Friday. The

gunman raised his weapon and

pointed it at Al-Jammali, who

thought to himself – this is the

end.

But then, for reasons unknown

to Al-Jammali, the gunman

didn’t fire. Instead he swivelled

and shot the person beside

him, and then turned away and

opened fire in a different direction.

“I don’t know why he didn’t

shoot me. He shot the guy

beside me and killed him, and

then turned to the other side

to kill my other friends in the

other corner,” Al-Jammali told

the New Zealand Herald.

“I was one of the luckiest

persons . . . God just saved me

from the bullets and his machine

gun.”

Al-Jammali was a regular

visitor to Masjid Al Noor. Every

Friday, because of a leg injury, he

took a seat near the window to

pray. When the serenity of prayer

time was interrupted by gunfire,

he became confused.

“I never imagined that this is

guns because we are in a safe,

great country, a very safe country.

Normally I can’t imagine

that this would happen. No way.

“I realised the truth when he

came in front of me and start

killing the people. I realised . . .

I’m going to be dead.”

After Al-Jammali had been

spared, he jumped out of the

window. He cut his knee on

broken glass in the process – and

was then trampled by the rush of

people that crashed over him like

a wave.

“Everyone was just so scared

. . . many people trying to get

out, it was very hard. At the same

time, we could hear the shots

being fired.”

Al-Jammali pulled himself up

and joined the others running

for their lives through the backyard

and then jumping the fence

to the neighbouring property.

He found a spot to lie down

and hide, only allowing himself

to stand up and survey what had

happened after police arrived

and secured the scene.

“I saw two or three kids killed,

a small girl killed on the street.

There were a lot of bodies at the

mosque while they were starting

to move the injured people.

“He killed innocent victims,

my friends, kids and children,

just killed them in cold blood.”

As Al-Jammali had only

suffered minor injuries to his

knee and his back, he was one

of the last people to be taken to

hospital.

“I was shocked, very shocked,

so I can’t really remember.

Around the same time, his

21-year-old son Mahmoud was

distraught trying to find his

father.

Mahmoud was late to Friday

prayers that day, and by the

time he arrived, the gunman

had already left a trail of dead

bodies.

thought ‘this is the end’

“I saw the dead people in

front. I didn’t believe it. No way,”

Mahmoud said.

“If I see dead people like that,

I felt like my Dad might be one

of them. I went crazy. The police

tried to calm me down . . . [but] I

didn’t find him.

“I waited one hour outside,

looking everywhere. And one of

my mates came up to me said,

‘Your dad is alive but got shot

in the leg.’ So that got me crazy

more and more.”

Mahmoud went to the hospital

but couldn’t get in because of

tight security. He was desperate

and started pleading with police:

“Please, my dad got shot. I can’t

wait here.”

When police eventually let him

inside, the chaotic scenes made

it impossible to find information

about his father. But he found

comfort in other friends that

were also waiting anxiously for

news of their fathers, who had

also suffered gunshot wounds.

“I was so shocked and so scared

I was going to lose him.”

When Mahmoud was finally

reunited with his father, he ran

up to him with the words:

“Thank God you’re still here.”

Al-Jammali and his family

have been overwhelmed at the

response in the city and around

the country, having seen the endless

flow of flowers and poignant

words at the city’s memorial sites.

They have no intention of leaving

the city, and want to return to

Masjid Al Noor.

“We are going to go back.

Nothing is going to stop us from

doing our religion,” Al-Jammali

said.

“I will never leave New Zealand.

This is my home. This is my

country now after all these years

. . . New Zealand is the best country.

The people are very friendly.

Most of our neighbours came

and visited me and offered me all

the support that I need or want.”

Al-Jammali grew up in Kuwait

and moved to Auckland with

his family in 1996. He returned

to Kuwait for work as a sales

manager, but found a home in

Christchurch four years ago.

He was welcomed into the

city’s Muslim community, and

knew many of the deceased well.

The people killed or shot, they

are my best of friends . . . what

shall we do? It is part of the life.

We have to carry on.”

One of those who died was

Moshin Al-Harbi, who Al-Jammali

describes as his best friend.

Al-Jammali started receiving

confused phone calls yesterday

when global media reported on

Al-Harbi’s death, but in stories

that showed the iconic photo of

Al-Jammali pointing to the sky.

Al-Jammali reassured those

calling him that he was actually

still alive, and very lucky to be so.

He and his family realise that

‘I will never leave New

Zealand. This is my home.

This is my country now

after all these years . . .

New Zealand is the best

country. The people are

very friendly.’

– Khaled Al-Jammali

others in the tight-knit community

have not been so lucky, and

they are focused on supporting

those families. They have been at

the hospital every day since the

attack.

Al-Jammali said the silver

lining to this horrific ordeal was

that the whole world can now see

that Muslim people are peaceful,

loving and welcoming.

“Even when he came to start

shooting innocent people, the

first he killed told him, ‘Welcome,

brother’.

“Now all of the world knows

that Muslims are very friendly,

even when there is someone trying

to kill them.

“This is what we are. This is our

religion. I hope he can understand

this too.”

Student starts chain of love movement

Schools from

across NZ

and Australia

get involved

• By Julia Evans

SUJEAN IN was protesting

against climate change when she

and thousands of other students

were evacuated from Cathedral

Square on Friday.

The St Margaret’s College head

girl did not know what was going

on.

She just listened to the

instructions of a friendly female

police officer, and when she

found out about the terror attack

which had devastated the city,

she knew students would need an

outlet to help.

“Young people can often feel

lost as to what you can do when

this kind of thing happens.”

She started the Paper Chain

of Love and it has been added

to by students from around

Christchurch, New Zealand

and Australia – each link with a

message of support.

“It came from the idea that all

of us students are connected and

that love is stronger than hate

. . . everyone in Christchurch is

interlinked and we share a love

for each other in spite of the

ugliness of Friday,” Sujean said.

“I wanted to create something

to represent that. What they did

was try and tear our city down,

like it was made of paper, but it’s

stronger than that.”

Her idea has taken off.

Students from St Andrew’s,

Marian, Villa Maria, St Bede’s,

Catholic Cathedral, Christ’s

and St Thomas’ of Canterbury

colleges, as well as Selwyn House,

Middleton Grange, Avonside

LOVE: Sujean In

organised the

Paper Chain of

Love movement

for students.

(Above) –

The chains

have been

delivered to the

memorial at

Deans Ave.

Girls, Christchurch Girls, Rangi

Darfield and Shirley Boys high

schools are also making chains.

Support has also been shown

for the initiative at Auckland’s

Diocesan, Waimate High, St

Meanwhile, in Australia,

Loreto College in Ballarat,

Victoria, Melbourne’s Ivanhoe

Girls’ Grammar and Mentone

Girls’ Grammar, Our Lady of

Mercy College in Parramatta and

Meriden School in Sydney are

making chains.

The chains were delivered to

Nearly $40,000 raised

through memorial pins

NEARLY $40,000 has been

raised for those affected by the

terror attacks through the sale of

memorial pins.

More than 2600 of the

heart-shaped Kotahitanga pins,

which symbolise unity and

togetherness, have been sold so far.

All the proceeds from the sale

of the pins will go to the Victim

Support fund to support those

affected by the terror attack.

More than 2600 pins have

been ordered so far, which will

raise nearly $40,000 for victim

support.

Director of design studio

McCarthy, Stephen McCarthy,

said the number of sales

had definitely exceeded his

expectations.

There are about 800 left in the

first order.

Most of the orders had been

for more than one pin, with

some orders of more than 100

pins placed, McCarthy said.

The pins, in the shape of two

sides of a heart embracing,

represent everyone from

Christchurch being one.

The kotahitanga pin has been

designed to represent unity and

togetherness.

He hoped it would help create

and an ongoing conversation

that would last past the events

happening now “because

we’ve got to change our way of

thinking”.

“A lot of things happen in

the digital realm but having

something physical . . . lasts a lot

longer. It’s a pin that someone

will have forever so that this

conversation can keep going, it’s

vitally important.”

The pins can be pre-ordered

now from togetherasone.

co.nz, and are expected to arrive

from an overseas manufacturer

in about two weeks. McCarthy

said they would be shipped out

as soon as they arrived.

Paying our respects

ON SUNDAY and Monday we

took Vittoria to place flowers and

pay respect for those who were

killed on Friday.

People have lost friends, family,

parents, children, teammates and

colleagues.

Even if you did not know any of

those who were attacked in either

the Masjid Al Noor or Linwood

mosques, we’ve lost people who

were part of the city’s fabric of life.

People we saw on the street,

saw in the shops and played with

at the park, smiled at us as we

walked by. Some even shared

pleasantries with as we waited for

a coffee.

It will be hard to explain it to

Vittoria when one day she asks

me about what happened, that

people were murdered because of

their faith, a faith shared by some

in her own family.

But the city and the country’s

reaction has added to my pride in

raising Vittoria here.

Rather than politicise the event

or ignore the pain our Muslim

whānau are feeling, people got

straight on to helping, spreading

messages of love or working on

practical support for the affected

families.

There’s also a lot of

shoved it in her mouth.

I never thought duck poo

would look like mushed grass, but

as I fished the dark green gunk

out of her mouth it looked just

Her face did not look as

disgusted at it should have.

So far both her stomach and

mine have managed to stand up

to it.

Where were you when it happened?

Ramandip

Singh, 19, chef:

I was on my way

to the Terrace

Tavern. When

it happened

we closed the

restaurant and

were in lockdown. We don’t

accept these things in New

Zealand. It is bad for us. When

we opened on Saturday it was

too quiet. Most people were

too scared to come out of their

homes.

Tia McClure, 18, Hagley

College student: I had just

arrived home.

I was thinking

of staying at

school to study

but decided not

to. My mother

rang to check I

was home after

hearing my

school was in lockdown. I knew

there were people at the climate

change protest so I checked to

see they were okay. I also rang

my brother who was at Papanui

High School. He had gone to his

girlfriend’s, thankfully everyone

was okay.

Bev O’Brien, 70, retired: I

was at home in Linwood. I was

overwhelmed and

I turned on the

television. It was

the helicopters

that kept flying

over, you didn’t

know if they

were following

someone or

protecting us. We have been to

see the flowers at Rolleston Ave

and have been down to Linwood

Ave to put down flowers. We are

going over to Europe in May. I

thought if it was going to happen

anywhere, it would be at one of

the places we are going to, not in

our home town. It is at the back

of your mind.

Russell

Falcome-Price,

unemployed:

I was about to

go out and my

phone went off.

It was a friend

of mine who

said to stay indoors, there’s a

madman on the loose. I thought

this can’t be right, so I turned

on the news. Then when I saw

it, all I thought was, oh my god,

this can’t be happening so I had

to double-check and when I

found out it was real, I was lost

for words. For the last few days

I’ve been heartbroken. I went

to the memorial site and broke

down. A stranger gave me a great

big hug. It’s really unbelievable,

seeing all the flowers and

everyone coming together. My

phone hasn’t stopped going with

friends checking to see if I was

okay.

Alex Hart, 30,

painter: Me and

a friend drove

past Deans Ave,

we were driving

down from the

Blenheim Rd

overbridge and

we saw three

cop cars, they were blocking off

some of the streets. We thought

it might have been a hostage

situation.

My friend drove up

Moorhouse, I was a passenger

and then we saw 11 cop cars

plus three ambulances, we knew

something really bad happened.

We didn’t know but we were

driving past as it was happening.

My friend and I ended up

finding a takeaway that was

opened in Woolston. The biggest

memory I have from that day

was we were all talking and there

was a nurse from the hospital,

she was trying to be strong and

keep it together, but her face said

it all that she had not had a good

day.

Waitangi

Tuisuga, 18,

painter: I

was at home

with my mum

in Mairehau. I

have a couple

of siblings at

school and my mum got a

notification. One of my brothers

is at Casebrook Intermediate

School, my other brother is at

Shirley Boys’ High School. I have

a sister at Mairehau Primary

School and at Burnside High

School. My other sister was at a

volleyball tournament at Pioneer

Recreation and Sport Centre.

When I found out I started

texting my brothers and sisters.

It was pretty crazy, it didn’t feel

real. You wouldn’t think that

would happen in Christchurch

or New Zealand, but especially

Christchurch.

John Hind, 64, retired:

I was driving to the gym in

Rolleston at about 2pm when

I first heard the news. When I

came out of the

gym everything

was in lockdown.

I thought, oh

my god, what

is going on? I

was listening

to the news

with disbelief

and horror. I was absolutely

gobsmacked, this is not New

Zealand. My wife who works at

Lincoln University rang to say

she was in lockdown.

My sister also rang after

hearing all education facilities

were in lockdown to check on

my wife. Texts also were flying

in from overseas to check I was

okay.

What p****s me off is it

takes this type of tragedy for

politicians to have the balls to

change the gun laws. It should

have been done 15 years ago. My

heart goes out to the people who

have lost someone.

Nive Aiono,

26, freight

handler: I was

three blocks

away at home

in Addington

when I heard the

helicopters and I

saw it all on Facebook.

I was surprised, I didn’t think

it would happen here. I was just

having a smoke outside and I

wanted to go and see what was

happening. We were watching

the helicopters for a while and

went for a drive. We want to go

and pay our respects.

Josh Hart, 22, fast food

worker/union delegate:

I was in the city centre by the

Christchurch Cathedral at the

climate change

protest. It was

something. A

policewoman

got on stage and

told everyone

they should leave

town. Nobody

moved because

they thought she was trying to

break up the protest. Everyone

was idling around. She got back

up on stage again told us again

and said if anyone was trying to

go to Hagley or Riccarton, not

to bother. She didn’t tell us what

it was about. My friend and I

went for a coffee at the Tūranga

library.

The same woman came back

and moved everyone to the first

floor and put us in lockdown.

There were about 2000 people in

the library, it was terrifying. We

were watching the police vans go

by, some would have been going

at 100km/h.

Belinda

Naish, 41,

metro and

school run

bus driver: I

was at home in

Kaiapoi, I had

taken the day off. I just ended

up being glued to the television.

I was in shock. I contacted

another bus driver because I

had heard all the buses had been

suspended.

He was fine from what I could

gather. I am shocked more

than anything. The fact this has

happened on our back doorstep.

Especially after what we

have been through with the

earthquakes.

Lynette

Marie Double,

49, social

worker: I was

with my mum

in Bishopdale.

I watched

the television

and kept it on

constantly. I was glad to be with

my mother. It is surreal and I feel

like Christchurch has changed.

Patricia Papuni, 16,

Hagley

College

student: I

was in the city

council building

with the mayor.

She was right

in front of me.

I was there for

the climate change protest. She

was very calm and very well

prepared. They told us to go into

the council chamber. We were

locked in there.

After a few hours we went to

the function room and chilled

there for a few hours. I called my

twin sister.

They were locked in the dance

room at Hagley College. I was in

disbelief, I thought someone was

making it up for attention but

then the news started coming

through.

My caregiver’s friend was

shot while another friend was

supposed to be going to the

mosque but got called into

work.

Plan to control quarry

dust with water criticised

• By Anan Zaki

WATER CANONS and

carts could be used to

control dust emissions at

Fulton Hogan’s proposed

quarry near Weedons and

Templeton.

Details on dust and air

quality featured in a

54-page document

presented to Environment

Canterbury and the Selwyn

District Council last week.

The information was

provided after the regional

and district councils

requested more details

about Fulton Hogan’s plans

to quarry at a 170ha

site bordered by

Curraghs, Dawsons,

Jones and Maddisons

Rds.

Quarry opponent

Simon Moore said

using water canons

and carts would be a

waste of water.

Mr Moore is still

against the idea of a

quarry near Weedons and

Templeton.

They are going to

require a huge amount of

water to do that [mitigate

dust],” he said.

Dust from trucks is also

another issue for quarry

opponents.

Mr Moore referred

to trucks leaving

the Miners Rd

quarry to highlight

concerns over dust

from trucks.

The issue is

when trucks leave

the quarry, they’ve

been water blasted,

and as they go onto

the road, they’re

leaving deposits of dirt on

the road. And as it drives

that turns into dust,” Mr

Moore said.

“Thursday morning after

a heavy dew, I was going

past there [Miners Rd

news online a

quarry] at nine o’clock in

the morning and you could

hardly see the trucks on the

road for the dust coming

off the road,” he said.

Mr Moore said “millions”

of litres of water would be

wasted on dust mitigation

if the quarry is approved.

Fulton Hogan also

addressed questions about

traffic to and from the

proposed quarry.

Based on modelling,

it said most of the traffic

would be

east-bound to and from

Christchurch.

Stage two of the $195

million of the Southern

Motorway is anticipated to

carry most of the traffic.

MOTORIST’S frustration with

traffic and delays on the new $20

million section of Manchester St

is being resolved.

A two-year upgrade to 850m

of the street by Otakaro was

finished in August and included

widened footpaths and new bus

lanes and stops.

However, following

a series of

complaints about

traffic backing up

on the new stretch

of road, city council

staff have made a

Deon

Swiggs

number of changes

to ease frustration.

The permanent

demand for pedestrian

and cyclists crossing the

street was removed, so lights will

go red only when a pedestrian

and cyclist trigger the signal.

The stop line on Manchester

St northbound at the Hereford

St intersection was set back so

more vehicles could get through,

the signal phasing was adjusted

so time is reduced for the

northbound bus lane and signal

detectors in the bus lane have

been reprogrammed to allow any

spare time to be distributed to

general traffic.

There was an unnecessary allowance

in the phase at the Lichfield

St intersection for the tram,

which has also been removed.

Central Ward city councillor

Deon Swiggs, who submitted a

notice of motion that changes

be made, said it was a “fantastic

result” for drivers.

“I’m very pleased that we’re finally

doing things to fix it,” he said.

However, a report from city

council staff said a “complicating

factor” that it was delivered by

Otakaro.

news online at www.star.kiwi

Plan to ease Manchester St frustration

“Although the road is open

to, and being used by the public,

it is yet to be accepted back by

the council. This initially limited

the changes Christchurch Transport

Operations Centre could

make.”

Cr Swiggs said he wanted to be

the one to sign the project off.

“I don’t want us to inherit a

liability,” he said. CTOC will

continue to monitor the road.

has made a

changes to

the traffic

lights along

Manchester

St in a bid

to ease

frustration for

motorists.

City council staff have

suggested other options for

improvements, including signage

to guide motorists onto the oneway

system, turning off the lights

that allow for buses to re-enter

traffic during periods of low bus

frequency, reducing the amount

of traffic entering Manchester

St, more signal changes and

reintroducing the east-bound

right turn into Cashel St.

Feedback

sought on

reserve toilets

FEEDBACK IS open on a plan

that could see two toilet blocks

installed at Roto Kohatu Reserve

at a cost of $1 million.

The popular recreation site

on Sawyers Arms Rd, which

currently only has portaloos,

would get two separate toilet

blocks due to the high number

of annual visitors to Lake Roto

Kohatu and Lake Rua.

The lakes are used for

watersports, swimming and

there is a picnic area. Each block

will have two cubicles and an

outside shower. The cost would

be $282,806 for each building

and $440,000 to connect them

up to services. The toilet blocks

were approved by the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board in July after the city

council discovered visitors

were defecating in the bushes

surrounding the lake.

The city council is also

proposing a new 100-space car

park. Depending on the outcome

of the consultation, the city council

aims to have the toilet blocks

completed before December.

Protect your

digital identity

Looking back over the past few decades, it’s amazing

to think how much our lives have changed in the

digital world.

These days email accounts are part of our everyday life. We use

them to communicate and manage all manner of online interactions and

transactions without a second thought.

Our email address has become our digital ‘identity’ – we use it to set up

and control our other online accounts. For that reason alone, it’s really

important that we protect it. One of the best ways to do this is to make

sure your email account password is strong,

and different to all your other passwords.

Protecting your email account from attack is

crucial. If someone gets hold of your account

password, they have access to a world of

personal and financial information that’s stored

in your email. This means they could:

• watch your emails to see when you’re due

to make a payment to someone and swap

out the bank account details so the payment

goes into their account instead

• download all your contacts and send them

an email that tricks them into clicking on a

link that downloads a virus

• use your email address to log in to other

online accounts, reset the passwords and

access those accounts.

Our email

address has

become

our digital

‘identity’ –

we use it to

set up and

control our

other online

accounts.

It’s very easy for them to do. It’s also very concerning because the impacts

of any of these cyber attacks can be significant and have serious results for

you, your family and friends, and your finances.

Because of this, it’s important that your email account is super protected.

And by super protected, I mean it needs to have its own unique and strong

password.

Chance to farewell

Linwood College

A CELEBRATION is

planned for April 5 and

6 to celebrate the past

65 years of educational

history of Linwood

College.

In mid-2019, the

school’s buildings will be

demolished in preparation

for a full rebuild on site.

At $44 million the

rebuild budget is one of

Students enrolled at the

Use different passwords for every account.

The key to protecting your digital identity is to set up different passwords

on each of your accounts. That way, if someone does get hold of one of

your passwords, they won’t be able to use the same password to get into

your other accounts. If you have trouble remembering passwords (let’s face

it, we all do), write them down but store them away from your computer

and phone.

Make sure your passwords are strong.

A long password is a strong password. A string of four or more words is

as strong as using a mix of numbers, letters and characters, and easier to

remember. eg. Frozencokeisdelicious

I cannot emphasise more strongly how important it is to have unique and

strong passwords for your online accounts – especially for your email

account as it is often the key to other accounts.

Protect your digital identity – change your email account password now so

it’s different to all your other passwords.

PS: Consider using a password manager to store your passwords. It’s an app

that stores all your passwords securely so you only have to remember one

password.

Rob Pope is the Director of CERT NZ. CERT NZ helps New Zealanders

to protect themselves by improving cyber security. www.cert.govt.nz has

HOW DO you get a 200kg

leatherback sea turtle from

Banks Peninsula to Wellington?

That’s the question the

Department of Conservation and

Te Papa museum had to solve

after a critically endangered,

2.4m male turtle washed up on

Pigeon Bay on Monday.

DOC ranger Derek Cox called

it a “logistical nightmare” after

he was called out to the beach by

luxury resort Annandale Villas.

“I drove down there just to

get some photos and some

measurements . . . then secured

it to the beach. On the way out

I talked to the farm manager

to take the tractor down the

following morning,” he said.

“But when I got back it had

floated off the beach, I had to

swim and wade to get it back.”

The turtle was secured to the

tractor and shown to pupils at

Duvauchelle School before it was

driven to Christchurch.

He was nicknamed

Tuesday’s Turtle after Mr Cox’s

stepdaughter called Tuesday.

A vehicle from Te Papa is

picking the turtle up and driving

it back to Wellington, he said.

The turtle’s skeleton will be

extracted to compare it with

20-million-year-old fossils found

in Central Otago.

Leatherbacks are the largest

sea turtle species and also one

of the most migratory, crossing

both the Atlantic and Pacific

oceans.

They migrate to New Zealand

to feed, mainly on jellyfish and

marine invertebrates. Some

waters, but don’t come close to

shore.

However, Mr Cox said

sightings are rare near Banks

Peninsula.

“It’s the third we’ve come

across in the 12 years I’ve been

out here.”

It is not yet known how the

turtle died.

They can get caught in nets,

or die from plastic. Because they

feed mostly on jellyfish, they

mistake plastic bags for jellyfish

or it could just be old age,” Mr

Cox said.

Leatherbacks can live between

50 to 100 years.

City council

applies for

NZTA funding

• By Louis Day

THE CITY council is applying

for funding for a section of the

Coastal Pathway.

The section between Shag Rock

and Sumner Surf Life Saving

Surf Club is estimated to cost

about $6 million.

City council planning and

delivery transport manager

Lynette Ellis said this section of

the Coastal Pathway would be

completed to schedule even if the

New Zealand Transport Agency

did not grant the funding.

“NZTA subsidise between 50

and 75 per cent of eligible parts

of projects. Construction on this

section of the pathway is already

under way,” she said.

Landscaping and lighting improvements

are also part of the

project expected to be completed

by mid-October.

Ms Ellis said the entire project

when completed would provide a

multi-functional pathway to benefit

the community and visitors.

The asphalt path will run

between Shag Rock and Gollans

Point, and will then transition

to a boardwalk along the front

of the car park and the Sumner

Surf Lifesaving Club where

it connects with the existing

memorial walkway.”

Who has missed the most meetings?

• By Julia Evans

REPRESENTING the city has

Hillmorton High School

Inspiring academic

excellence, leadership,

and a love of learning

Middle School

leads to

outstanding

NCEA results

Kia ora koutou, talofa lava,

warm greetings to you all.

Since 2014 Hillmorton High

School has had a Middle School

for students in Years 7 – 10, and

a Senior School for students in

Years 11-13.

With our first Year

7 cohort (2014) we

now have the data to

show how well they

achieved five years

later in NCEA in Year

11 (2018). For this

cohort the data is

clear, students who

started in Year 7

(rather than in Year

9) not only had a

higher pass rate

but also the quality

of their Level 1

qualification was

better in terms of Excellence

Ann

Brokenshire

endorsements than the National

Average.

In 2018, we had six Year 11

students with multiple disabilities

in our Upland Unit. We have not

included these students in our

2014 Year 7 Entry 2016 Year 9 Entry National

2018 NCEA L1 pass rate 97% 88% 70.5%

Excellence Endorsements 22.2% 20.9%

Hillmorton High School is

undertaking consultation on

implementing a new enrolment

scheme.

There are seven co-educational

state secondary schools

proposing new schemes

or amendments to existing

schemes, so we are co-ordinating

data as they do not participate

in NCEA but all are succeeding in

their individual plans.

Students who begin with us in

Year 7 are very settled by Year

9. They behave in

ways consistent with

our school values and

appear well motivated

and on track to

achieving our mission

of “inspiring academic

excellence, leadership

and a love of learning”.

They also help students

arriving in Year 9 to

settle quickly and these

students also achieve

well above national

averages.

Having a Middle

School choice in the south west

of Christchurch gives a real

opportunity and it is certainly

working well for those who have

made this choice.

Kapa haka impresses

Nga Puna Wai has already hosted us for our school

athletics sports, and more recently, our school kapa

haka were invited to join in with the site blessing for

Tennis Canterbury.

The students sang a waiata after the blessing of the

courts, and after the tree planting ceremony, they

sang the school waiata.

Staff at Tennis Canterbury were extremely impressed

with the respect, commitment and positive energy

that the students, staff and volunteers showed

during the site blessing.

They said: “The Kapa haka students performed

brilliantly and they made an extremely positive

impact”.

We hope to help with the planting that is to take

place at the venue.

We look forward to our continued involvement at

Nga Puna Wai.

Breakfast from a champion

• By Matt Slaughter

TOM WALSH may not have

been the champion shot putter

he is today if he hadn’t eaten

breakfast.

Shirley Primary School pupils

were delighted when Walsh

served them up Weet-Bix as

part of the KickStart Breakfast

programme, which has served 30

million breakfasts over the last 10

years to Kiwi kids.

Jorja Shearman, 10, was the

lucky pupil to receive the 30

millionth.

The school has been part of the

programme since 2015 and was

the only school to have Walsh

make a special visit.

Deputy principal Jo Meyrick

said the pupils didn’t know how

to react when Walsh greeted

them at the breakfast counter.

They were super excited. I

think they didn’t really know

what to expect.”

Mrs Meyrick said Walsh joined

pupils at the breakfast table and

talked about what he ate for

breakfast.

She said the pupils were left

with full tummies and a spark of

inspiration.

“I actually think the kids

have really taken on board

that breakfast is really, really

important and, if you’re a

sporting type, it’s a cool thing to

do,” Mrs Meyrick said.

SERVED: Jorja Shearman, 10, was served the 30 millionth KickStart Breakfast by champion shot

putter Tom Walsh.

“It makes us feel better as

people and achieve what we can

achieve each day.”

Said Walsh: “It’s awesome

to see the positive effect that

a healthy, nutritious meal can

have on the kids performance

both in the classroom and

news online at www.star.kiwi

NEWS 23

also in their daily lives. It’s so

important to start the day with a

healthy breakfast in order to fuel

the body and mind for the day

ahead.”

KickStart Breakfast is a joint

initiative between Fonterra,

Sanitarium and the Ministry of

Social Development which aims

to ensure pupils get a healthy

start to the day.

Volunteers help run 1000

breakfast clubs in schools

across New Zealand, serving

more than 30,000 children each

week.

Pier cash

should

go back

east

• By Matt Slaughter

CALLS HAVE been made to

make the $2 million saved on

the New Brighton Pier repairs

available for other projects in the

east.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board chairwoman Kim Money

has asked the city council to

consider it.

Ms Money was told by the city

council the $2 million had gone

back into its capital delivery

programme for the 2018/19

financial year.

The repairs to all 17 of the pier’s

support columns were completed

for $7.84 million, rather than

the $9.88 million originally

budgeted, a new report shows.

Coastal Ward city

councillor David East said

the savings within the capital

programme could not go towards

other projects.

However, Ms Money said

the city council should

reconsider its stance, starting

with the $2 million saved from

the pier repairs.

Clear safety message from expo

The Save Our Suburbs

Expo brought

residents in the

east together with

emergency services

and community

groups for discussions

on how they could

work together to keep

the community safe.

Matt Slaughter reports

on the key advice

given

EMERGENCY services and

community groups in the east

say residents

need to work

together to keep

safe.

This was

the message

that came out

of the Save

Darlene

Herd

Our Suburbs

Community

Safety Expo

held at the

former central New Brighton

School site.

Emergency services, Civil Defence,

neighbourhood support,

mental health professionals,

insurance, security, technology

experts, city council and Age

Concern representatives all came

together.

About 120 people, mostly from

the eastern suburbs, attended the

event which was organised by

North New Brighton residents

Darlene and Jeremy Herd and

South New Brighton resident

Soozie Bragg.

Houses and roading in the east

suffered major damage in the

2010 and 2011 earthquakes and

residents clogged roads when a

tsunami warning forced them to

evacuate after the 2016 Kaikoura

earthquake.

Mrs Herd said her home had

been burgled on Boxing Day,

which had inspired her to do

something to make the east safer.

She said the collective message

delivered by all of the organisations

was the importance of residents

knowing their neighbours

and the tools available to keep

themselves and others safe from

crime and natural threats out of

their control.

“After you get burgled or have

a tragedy, it forces you to think

about these things,” she said.

The core message was to take

some personal responsibility for

your own safety and see what

you can do as a person and also

a member of the community to

make some changes.”

Constable Nathan Wilson

said the first piece of advice

was how people could protect

themselves against crime before

it occurred.

“We were targeting on

burglaries and ensuring

everything’s all locked and

secure all of the time. It’s even

getting to the point where during

the day if you’re going out to

the back of your property to do

some gardening, make sure that

your front door is all locked.

With alarms, if you’ve got them,

make sure they’re being used. A

big one is getting to know your

neighbours . . . if you’re going

away, touch base with your

neighbours and let them know.”

Constable Wilson said the

best ways to help police when

crime did occur was the next big

topic of conversation. If people

felt they were not in immediate

danger, it was still important to

report any suspicious behaviour,

he said.

“When people don’t report

things, we don’t know

about it and we can’t get

out there to try and prevent

it from happening.”

City council head

of Civil Defence and

emergency management

Rob Orchard said

information was given on

how people could prepare

themselves for disasters,

particularly tsunamis, which had

posed a risk to the beach suburbs

in the east in the past.

“On display were the current

tsunami evacuation zones . . .

and where they could find the

tsunami evacuation zones.”

Bruce Irvine

“Emergencies can be anything

from not being able to get home,

to the impacts of natural hazards

like earthquakes, storms, or

tsunamis. It’s really important

that we get prepared for such

disruptions.”

Fire and Emergency New

Zealand senior fire

risk manager Bruce

Irvine said fire posed an

extreme risk along the

beach front.

“Our topic of discussion

was related to

occupied properties and

having an escape plan

with an identified meeting

place for when your smoke

alarm activates.”

Ensuring the safety of the

high number of vacant and

insecure houses in the east

was also emphasised, Mr Irvine

said.

“A request has gone out to

SAFE: The importance

of residents in the

east knowing their

neighbours, reporting

crime and preparing

themselves for natural

disasters, like the

evacuations after the

Kaikoura earthquake

in 2016, was the

key advice given by

emergency services

and community

groups during the

Save Our Suburbs

Expo.

property owners to secure their

asset with improved fencing,

other security measures

including boarding of broken

windows, along with managing

the vegetation on the properties

better to reduce the potential fire

risk.”

Mrs Herd said the Save Our

Suburbs Expo was just one of the

many steps needed to make the

east. She said she was already

in conversations about the

possibility of the expo becoming

an annual event.

In February, the Ministry of

Civil Defence and Emergency

Management community

resilience co-ordinators

participated in the South

Brighton preparedness day.

They talked to residents about

preparedness, in particular

about tsunamis and emergency

mobility alerts.

MORE THAN 20,000

households across Banks

Peninsula may have to

pay a targeted rate for pest

control.

Environment

Canterbury’s proposed

Pest-Free Banks Peninsula

strategy would affect

21,276 rateable properties

on the peninsula.

Public consultation on

the proposal has closed

and it will go to a hearings

panel next month before

the plan is finalised.

Different properties

would pay different rates,

depending on their size

and value.

“It would be based 80

per cent on land value, and

20 per cent on land area.

The targeted rate formula

would be approximately

$5 per $100,000 land value

plus $0.65 per hectare of

land,” said Maree Willetts,

ECan team leader of strategy,

planning, biodiversity

and biosecurity.

Ms Willetts said the

project would focus on

rats.

Retraining puts

new career within

easy reach

It’s never too late to completely change

career, as Reece Scott has discovered.

Calling time on his 17-year career in the

travel industry, he’s completely changed

path and is now focused on becoming

a chef.

“At the time I was the South

Island sales manager for The Travel

Corporation, which involved

representing the company’s award

winning travel products to travel agents

and consumers throughout the South

Island, from Invercargill to Nelson,”

Reece says. “By then I’d been in the

industry for a long time and I just felt

the need to challenge myself again.”

In order to forge a new career path,

Reece knew he needed to retrain. “I’ve

always enjoyed working with food and

have had experience in the industry

before so I wanted to brush up on my

skills and seek employment in cookery.”

Reece says he chose to study at Ara

Institute of Canterbury because of its

reputation as a world-class tertiary

training centre. “The cookery school

at Ara has a reputation for preparing

students to a high standard and giving

them the best skills for employment.

They also have great facilities and

inspiring, knowledgeable tutors.”

One of those tutors is Stuart

Goodall, who’s had a hand in

training many students who’ve

gone on to become top chefs,

both here and overseas. “He really

knows his stuff,” Reece says. “He

bestows his knowledge to us in

a very relaxed way that’s easy to

understand.”

While Reece undertakes his

cookery course, he’s getting

to put his training into

practice at Ara’s on-campus

restaurant, Visions. “It’s

great to see how it all works,

from when an order comes

in right through to producing

a saleable product for paying

customers. It’s giving me the skills

and preparation to be ready for

employment.”

Reece is keen to encourage others

– especially those who aren’t happy

in their current career - to follow

his example and study towards a

new career. “Definitely do it,” he

says. “Retraining has prepared

me really well for employment

in this industry.”

UNSAFE: The Governors Bay jetty has been closed since 2011 after an

engineering inspection found it to be unfit for public use.

Fete and music festival to

restore Governors Bay jetty

• By Louis Day

A FETE and music festival

will be held next week

in a bid to restore the

Governors Bay jetty.

The Governors Bay

Community Association

and Governors Bay Jetty

Restoration Trust have

joined forces to organise

the annual fete and a “save

the jetty” music festival on

March 30 at the Allendale

Reserve.

The Governors Bay

Jetty Restoration Trust is

currently raising money

and working with city

council on a project to

restore the jetty.

The jetty has been

closed since 2011 after an

inspection from engineers

found it to be unfit for

public use.

Trust secretary Louisa

Eades said $735,000

has already been raised

towards the project.

However, she said the

restoration project was

likely to cost $3 million in

total.

“We are working

with the city council to

get them to allocate more

money towards the project

in the Annual Plan. If all

goes to plan, we would

like to start the project in

the spring, but that totally

depends on fundraising,”

she said.

Proceeds made from the

fete and music festival will

go towards the restoration

of the jetty.

The fete will run from

noon-4pm and include

entertainment, stalls, a fire

brigade demonstration,

white elephant, a vintage

car showing, food and a

pop-up bar.

From 6-10pm, the trust

will hold the “jetty music

festival.”

Local bands will provide

entertainment and there

will be food stalls and a

pop-up bar run by Two

Thumbs Brewing Co. The

line-up will include The

In Crowd, 3KG and James

Constable.

Heartfelt performance from rocker

CHERISHED: Aaron Boyce’s role in Showbiz Christchurch’s

We Will Rock You will be one of his most poignant

performances. He and his mother Joycelyn (right) at a

wedding last year. ​

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

EVERY SHOW Aaron Boyce has

performed in holds a piece of his

heart.

But his role as an old hippy

rocker in a show celebrating

British rock-band Queen will be

one of the most poignant of his

career.

Last year, at about the same

time as Boyce found out he had

landed a leading role in Showbiz

Christchurch’s production of We

Will Rock You, his mother was

given between 12 and 15 months

to live.

It was discovered in November,

Boyce’s mother Joycelyn, 77,

had a brain tumour. While the

tumour has been removed, it is

malignant meaning her only option

is to have chemotherapy and

radiation to keep her alive for a

little longer, Boyce said.

It means We Will Rock You

could be the last show Mrs Boyce

will ever see her son perform in.

“Mum is the eternal optimist.

She is very positive about it all.

She knows there is no escaping

what is happening . . . she is an

incredible woman all round just

by the mere fact she is trying her

hardest to make sure us kids are

keeping intact,” he said.

He said his mother has been a

Freddie Mercury fan for as long

as he could remember and she is

“absolutely ecstatic” to be going.

The show tells the story of a

group of Bohemians who struggle

to restore the free exchange of

thought, fashion and live music

in a future where people think

the same.

Boyce said he had kept the

subject of his mother’s illness to

himself throughout rehearsals.

But when she told him to “go

for your life” and “lay it all out

there”, it inspired him to talk

about her. Boyce described her as

one of the most selfless people he

has ever met.

“She has always embraced everyone

. . . she has always been one

of the most caring people you

can find right to the point she is

the one with cancer and she is

still trying to support everyone

else through it.”

His mother and father Winton

formerly owned the Governors

Bay Wheatsheaf Tavern in the

1980s.

“Everyone in the pub used

to call her ‘Joycey Boycey’ or

‘Mumsie’ . . . everyone could

come there and talk to her about

her problems. She would always

be there to listen.”

Boyce said there would often

be about 15 kids lining up on

their doorstep on a Saturday

looking for food.

“If she was camping she would

meet people . . . all of a sudden

they would end up staying at our

place for a month.”

Boyce said he was a “late

bloomer” as he didn’t properly

start singing until he auditioned

for a band called Bubble Men at

22-years-old. He went on to tour

Europe which led to performing

in rock musicals.

GARDENING ADVICE

I have a lemon tree which is about 9 years old and it has produced very few fruits during this time. Only three lemons

in the past year. I have fertilised it well during this summer period and also added potash. It has grown significantly

Q and has produced heaps of flowers which developed into small fruit only to fall off the tree. Can you please advise

what would be the best solution?

Today’s winning question came from Terry Mundy. Congratulations!

A

A nine-year-old lemon tree should be

producing regular and heavy crops of fruit.

However, if the tree dries out substantially at

the very time when young fruit are forming,

the tree will naturally shed a considerable

percentage of young fruit.

This happens not only with lemons, but with many

other different fruit trees. To avoid this occurring in

future years, water regularly and deeply throughout

December, January and February (when fruit is

forming) and mulch the tree with crushed bark, pea

straw or compost to help retain soil moisture at a

constant level.

Unfortunately, with fruit trees, you only receive one

opportunity every year for the flowers to

set fruit. Therefore, it is vitally important

to be attentive to the tree’s needs during

these critical summer months.

Lancaster’s big impact on and off-field

From player

to rugby

executive

•Over the Super Rugby season, The Star

will look back each week at some of the

identities who graced the Crusaders jersey in

the past and discover where they are now

• By Gordon Findlater

STEVE Lancaster’s contributions

to the Crusaders and rugby as a

whole have been just as big off

the field as they were on it.

The lock played 26 matches

for the Crusaders from 1997-

2000. He is now New Zealand

Rugby’s head of participation

and development. While his

Crusaders playing days only

consisted of four years, his career

in rugby management has seen

him spend 13 years in total with

the franchise.

Lancaster was recruited as a

player following the end of the

Crusaders first Super Rugby

season in 1996, which saw them

finish last in the competition.

Before joining the franchise,

Lancaster was playing club rugby

in Auckland after returning

from a three-year stint in Japan

with Yamaha Júbilo.

“I finished university and did

the Kiwi OE thing. I thought

rugby was a pretty good vehicle

to play in Japan . . . this is before

rugby is professional, so I wasn’t

setting myself up like guys do

these days, but it was a great

experience,” said Lancaster.

While he knew he had joined

a team which struggled in their

first campaign, he was confident

he had joined a Crusaders

programme which had the right

tools in place to succeed.

“It was a pretty compelling

proposition actually in terms of

the set up, and the likes of Steve

Tew and Steve Hansen were

involved back then. It was clear

they had some ambition in what

they wanted to achieve with the

team,” said Lancaster.

After a sixth-place finish in

1997, Lancaster went on to win

three straight titles with the

Crusaders from 1998-2000.

“We felt something building.

We probably didn’t anticipate

we’d go on and win the next

three in a row, but there was

definitely a chemistry in that

group,” he said.

While he admits to keeping

the fact he was a born and raised

in Auckland quiet during his

time in Christchurch, the intense

rivalry with the Blues – which

peaked in the 1998 grand-final

– was special for Lancaster, who

now has strong Canterbury

allegiances.

“It was always special when we

came up against Auckland and

the Blues. I played for Marist in

Auckland so I coped plenty from

the Brooke brothers and other

guys who had played for Marist

whenever we met,” he said.

Lancaster also moved south

from Auckland at the same time

as former Crusaders No 8 Steve

Surridge. The pair spent their

early days in Christchurch sharing

a flat where they honed their

cooking skills.

“We had pretty limited repertoires

to be honest. I know

he rated his spag bol pretty

highly and I was the same with

meatballs, so there wasn’t a lot of

variety,” said Lancaster.

During his last year playing

with the team, Lancaster worked

with the Crusaders media adviser

at the time, Sonia Francis,

to develop the pilot for the

franchise’s personal development

programme. This would be the

beginning of a successful career

in rugby management.

“At the end of that season

when I retired, Steve Tew said to

me over a beer one night ‘before

you make any life changing decisions

come and have a chat’. I left

a coffee meeting the next week

with a hand shake on a new job,”

IN THE GAME: Steve

Lancaster played 26

matches at lock for the

Crusaders before going

on to spend a further nine

years with the club in

management roles.

said Lancaster.

After taking a role as the

Crusaders personal development

manager for three years, Lancaster

then worked for the NZRU

as a professional player, coach

and referee manager for three

years, before returning to the

Crusaders in 2006, where he held

the role of high-performance

manager for six years.

In 2012, Lancaster and his

family uprooted to Canada,

where his wife was born, to

begin a role as manager of highperformance

at Rugby Canada.

“I had worked for the biggest

fish in a relatively small pond,

so going to rugby in Canada,

you’re a small fish in a massive

pond. Rugby doesn’t even hit the

national conscience there.”

When Lancaster returned to

New Zealand in 2015, he held

his first position outside of rugby

as Netball New Zealand’s head

of high-performance. He also

briefly held the role of interim

chief executive.

He has been in his current role

at New Zealand Rugby since

2016. “I’m now responsible for all

rugby underneath professional

rugby in New Zealand. So that’s

clubs, schools and junior rugby.

It’s quite a broad role, but it’s effectively

overseeing the amateur

community game in New Zealand,”

said Lancaster.

His role comes with a number

of challenges due to the ever

changing landscape of the professional

game and competing

with the rapid rise in participation

sports such as basketball.

“I remember playing NPC for

Canterbury in front of 27,000

people. That’s just not the reality

anymore. We’ve got a 20-week

Super Rugby competition and

the All Blacks play 14 tests a year,

so there’s just so much rugby

content,” said Lancaster.

“We see the same thing in the

community game. When I was a

kid you could essentially choose

between rugby and soccer and

now the choices are limitless

. . . the onus is on us as a sport to

have a look at the way we offer

and deliver the game, ensuring

that it stays relevant particularly

to young New Zealanders.”

And while his playing days

with the Crusaders are now well

and truly in the past, he says they

can be summed up easily.

“I often tell people we won

three titles and then I retired in

2000. We finished 10th in 2001

so people can draw their own

conclusions about that.”

The Crusaders play the

Waratahs in Sydney at 9.45pm

on Saturday.

EXTREME EVENTS

often mean extreme

conversations need to

happen.

But how quickly one

of our darkest days as a

city resulted in a serious

conversation about the

name of our rugby team

seemed a little odd.

News headlines voicing

opinion on the Crusaders

name little more than 24

hours after Friday’s events

is an example of click bait

journalism at its absolute

worst. However, with the

flurry of noise being made,

it only feels appropriate to

give another take on this

growing debate.

In response to the terror

of Friday, there’s one reason

we shouldn’t change

the Crusaders name

and that’s because of the

beacon of positivity it provided

to this city during

another time of adversity,

eight years ago.

There’s no denying the

name is not a good look.

However, the timing to

change the name now after

little to no noise being

made about the meaning

of the term Crusaders

prior to last week’s event

would feel like nothing

more than a knee jerk

reaction.

Historically, the

Crusades were a series of

religious and political wars

between Christians and

Muslims fought in 11th

and 13th centuries.

Since debate over the

team name picked up

pace, the Crusaders have

stated they will consider

the issue which will include

conversations with a

range of people including

our Muslim community.

However, for many in

Christchurch the Crusaders

name means too much

to scrap.

Not because of their

legacy of success including

a record nine Super Rugby

titles, but because of what

they meant to the city in

it’s previous time of darkness.

To me the Crusaders

defining moment isn’t any

of their Super Rugby title

campaigns, but instead the

ray of light they provided

for those who experienced

extreme hardship following

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake. We didn’t

win the 2011 Super Rugby

title, but what that team

did for its people is their

greatest legacy. In a time of

darkness for many in the

region, watching our team

rally together without a

home themselves provided

a weekly escape from

hardship.

There’s no denying

what can be read into

the name Crusaders and

something does need

to change. Change the

emblem to something

that represents the type of

crusade we want to see in

Christchurch. A crusade

can be defined as to lead

or take part in a vigorous

campaign of any kind of

change – let a new emblem

reinforce one of an acceptance

of all races and

religions in our region.

But let the name live

on and let the Crusaders

continue to be a beacon

of positivity for our city

through these dark days

just like they’ve done

before.

DANIEL Whitehouse is

brimming with confidence about

the prospect of defending his Le

Race title on Saturday.

The 24-year-old Christchurch

rider dominated the 100km

classic from Cathedral Square to

Akaroa last year, leading from

the top of the first climb to the

finish line, and now he has his

eyes on the record books.

“I really want that course record,”

said Whitehouse, referring

to Michael Vink’s 2010 record

time of 2hr 31min 50sec.

The lightweight climber won

Le Race last year in spite of a

nightmare preparation when his

appendix was removed only four

weeks before the start.

After winning in Akaroa, the

British-born rider had a frustrating

season, even though he was

named king of the mountains in

the Spanish stage race, Vuelta a

Castillia y Leon, and surprised

himself by finishing second

overall in the Tour de Beauce, a

second-tier stage race in Canada.

Whitehouse moved to new

Irish pro-team EvoPro Racing

this season, which also has fellow

Kiwis Shane Archbold, Aaron

Gate and Luke Mudgway under

contract.

He has been impressed with

the new team’s professionalism

and will next month join the

rest of his teammates in Girona,

Spain.

Whitehouse said Le Race will

provide him with good, hard

racing, which will help him to

tackle some of the big mountains

that are waiting for him in

Europe.

news online at www.star.kiwi

SPORT 35

Whitehouse set to defend Le Race title

FOCUSED: Daniel Whitehouse has his eyes on a new

course record at Le Race on Saturday.

In spite of his confidence,

the 24-year-old knows he will

not have it all his own way and

points at the blistering form that

second-ranked Jason Christie

has displayed in recent weeks.

After winning the New Zealand

road titles in 2017 and 2018,

Christie recently took silver in

the time-trial and the road race

at the Oceania championships.

“And he’s a great sprinter, so I

do not want to arrive in Akaroa

with him,” said Whitehouse.

The other major threat will be

race record-holder Michael Vink,

who is always among the leading

riders and is able to use his

power on the Port Hills climbs to

compete with Whitehouse.

The 2017 winner Brad Evans

will also be rating his chances to

win his second title after finishing

third last year.

Another rider to keep an

eye on is Jake Marryatt, who is

regarded as one of the big Kiwi

talents after grabbing national

medals as an under-23 rider in

recent years and finishing in the

top-10 at this year’s elite race.

With his strong time-trial skills

and climbing ability, the young

Christchurch rider has the potential

to become an outstanding

all-rounder and could give the

more seasoned riders a run for

their money on Saturday.

If Christie manages to grab

top honours, the 2019 Le Race

could become a family affair

– his wife Georgia Christie

is the top-ranked rider in the

women’s field. She claimed the

national elite title in January and

performed well at the Oceania

The Star Thursday March 21 2019

championships.

The New Zealand champion

will be challenged by Kate McIlroy,

who was pipped at the post

in last year’s Le Race by Ella

Harris and also finished second

in 2017, so has some unfinished

business on Saturday.

McIlroy, who will be the

second-ranked rider in the

women’s field, has shown

great early season form and is

currently leading the Calder-

Stewart series.

Georgia has been ranked

ahead of namesake Henrietta

Christie, who is not related, and

finished third in last year’s race

at only 16. Henrietta recently

claimed bronze in the junior

Oceania time trial, is second in

the Calder-Stewart series and is

regarded as one of the brightest

female prospects in New Zealand

cycling.

The elite riders will be followed

by more than 700 riders of

all ages, shapes and sizes

testing themselves against the

tough course on cutting-edge

technology, as well as vintage

bikes and tandems. A large

group of weekend warriors will

take on the shorter version Le

Race Petite, which finishes in

Little River after 53km.

Rams sign former top

US college basketballer

THE CANTERBURY Rams

have signed a defensive stud in

the form of United States import

Isaiah Wilkins ahead of the NBL

season.

The 23-year-old is currently

playing for the Greensboro

Swarm, the Charlotte Hornetsaffiliated

NBA G-League team.

Last year he was named the

ACC defensive player of the year

while in his senior year at the

University of Virginia.

As a senior, Wilkins averaged 6

points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists,

1.2 steals and 1.4 blocks per

game, making him one of only 12

players in all of college basketball

to average at least 1.1 steals per

game and 1.3 blocks throughout

the 2017/18 campaign.

A year earlier, the 203cm

forward led the university in

rebounding, blocked shots and

steals as a junior. He was also

named in the ACC defensive

team of the year.

Said Rams head coach Mick

Downer: “We are really excited

to have Isaiah join our group. He

is a high-character guy, who was

a great defender on one of the

country’s most successful college

programmes out of the ACC in

his senior year, a team captain

and conference defensive player

of the year, who lead his team to

the NCAA tournament game.

It’s these qualities that have us

excited about the impact Isaiah

IMPORT: Isaiah Wilkins (right) will arrive in Christchurch next

month with an impressive defensive record. ​

can have on our community and

team.”

“He will really help us on

the glass and at the defensive

end. Isaiah is a very efficient

scorer, which is suited to the

international game, but the roles

he has accepted in the NBA G

League this season and at college

has seen him play part of a team

focused system, which will suit

the Rams style of play.”

Following college, Wilkins

joined the Houston Rockets for

the NBA Summer League and

then received a training camp

deal at the Charlotte Hornets.

Out of his training camp deal

with the Hornets, he was signed

to the Swarm roster.

The signing of Wilkins is

Downer’s 11th addition to

the team and third and final

import.

“We can’t wait to have him join

the team here in Christchurch

and help inspire us like he has

done with so many of his coaches

and teammates. The guy is first

class,” said Downer.

The Rams begin their NBL

campaign on the road when they

play the Southland Sharks on

April 14.

Canterbury United

face tough football

semi-final in wake

of terror attack

• By Gordon Findlater

THE CANTERBURY United

Dragons chances of making

their first national league

grand-final appearance in nine

years have been heavily affected

by last week’s terror attack.

Canterbury’s final roundrobin

match against Tasman

United was

cancelled due to

the attack. It was

agreed the points

would be shared

in a scoreless

draw, meaning

Canterbury

finished third

on 34 points due

to their superior

head-to-head

record over

Wellington.

They will now

play Eastern

Suburbs in

the semi-final on Saturday.

However, for many in the

squad their thoughts have been

elsewhere.

Atta Elayyan, 33, Tariq

Omar, 24, and Sayyad Milne,

14, all lost their lives in last

week’s terror attack. They

were all playing members

Willy Gerdsen

of the Christchurch football

community.

“We have many players

affected by it,” said Canterbury

coach Willy Gerdsen.

“We’re doing everything we

can to prepare best as possible

for the match, but if there’s

anyone who feels unable to play

this weekend I understand.”

Canterbury have

played Eastern

Suburbs twice this

season, losing on

both occasions.

In November,

Canterbury were

defeated 1-3 at

English Park and in

January they were

hammered 1-5 in

Auckland.

The cancellation

of the Nelson

match also means

Canterbury will go

into the semi-final

having played just two matches

in the last month.

The semi-final will kick off

at 2.35pm at Trusts Arena in

Auckland. The winner will

meet the victor of the other

semi-final between Auckland

City and Team Wellington.

Wild styling for

Ford Ranger Raptor

PIONEER OF the Ford

Motor Co, and mass

production, Henry Ford

once said: “If it ain’t broke,

why fix it?’’

We could say the same

today with one of Ford’s

best engines, the fabulous

3.2-litre five-cylinder diesel

that has given Ranger

ute, and its off-shoot, the

Everest sport utility vehicle,

such good service over the

years is now just an option.

The Everest now utilises

a 2-litre, four-cylinder

twin-turbocharged diesel

which is also going into

the Ranger Wildtrak and

Raptor double-cab utes.

It’s the latter vehicle this

evaluation focuses on, the

Raptor is an upgraded,

upmarket version of the

Ranger and it stands out

for its hugely wild looks

and aggressive stance.

There’s been a lot of suspension

development

work on Raptor and with

its huge tyres it looks as if

it could take on any challenge.

It’s the development work

that makes the Raptor

almost a different vehicle

from Ranger, it is more

comfortable to ride in, and

you can tell immediately

from being in the vehicle

that the suspension is a

step up. The ride is glorious,

bumps and ruts are

absorbed willingly, and

there’s very little jiggle

associated with vehicles

which utilise a load carrying,

live rear axle.

I don’t know that Ford

will get away unscathed

with the new engine, while

it is a beauty in terms of

output, performance and

refinement, educating buyers

that 2-litre is enough in

a 2300kg vehicle will be a

big ask.

However, I can report

that the engine is up

to task. Ford rate it

with 157kW and a

healthy500Nm of torque,

both outputs developed low

at 3750rpm and 1750rpm

respectively.

The engine drives

through a 10-speed automatic

gearbox. There is

an unmistakeable diesel

throb, but it is well isolated

from the cabin, and with

the smooth gearshifts and

seemingly endless supply of

ratios, driveline sophistication

has been a high manufacturing

priority.

Like all diesels, you can

also expect great economy

from the new four-potter.

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

FORD RANGER RAPTOR: Four-wheel-drive ute.

Bear in mind that the

Raptor is a heavy vehicle,

it carries a lot of kit, yet

it is still rated by Ford

with a 8.2-litre per 100km

(35mpg) combined cycle

average. I was pleased with

the results appearing on

the trip computer. The best

average readout was showing

9.4l/100km (30mpg),

with an instantaneous figure

of around 6.5l/100km

(44mpg) showing at

100km/h, the engine loping

over at just 1500rpm.

• Price – Ford Ranger

Raptor, $84,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 5398mm;

width, 2028mm;

height, 1873mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1996cc, 157kW,

500Nm, 10-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage –

8.2l/100km

At highway speed the

engine is fully responsive,

there was never a point

when I felt it went offboost,

the appropriate gear

was always selected, while

response to accelerator

request is instant.

In terms of acceleration,

the Raptor will reach

100km/h from a standstill

in 9sec, it is relatively quick

off the line and will haul

in mid-range speed with

strong boost.

The Raptor lands in New

Zealand in just one variant

and is listed at $84,990.

It comes with all the trick

gear Ford is building into

its utes these days, and with

the luxury and technological

specification it’s hard

to fathom it is a five-seater

ute based on rugged goanywhere

mechanicals.

That comment is based

on the complex four-wheeldrive

system, all options

can be initiated through a

centre console-mounted

dial switch.

Grip is supplied through

massive 285/70 x 17in

BF Goodrich all-terrain

tyres, and with an amazing

283mm of ground

clearance the Raptor is

a formidable off-road

challenger.

If you think the Raptor

is a vehicle which has the

looks but no substance, it

comes with special interior

trim – leather and suede

trim, keyless entry and

ignition, paddle-shift gear

selectors, special display

graphics and decals, and

stop-start engine technology

is all included.

I wouldn’t have been

happy if I hadn’t put the

Raptor to good use. I used

the deck area to take an

errant plant that had grown

out of control on the front

of my property to the green

waste depot.

That’s one of the many

reasons I like utes, they

are versatile and practical.

I also like the Raptor

for its functionality at the

other end, the new engine

is something that will filter

through other Ford product

in time.

The Raptor is certainly

a ute for someone who

likes to be noticed,

however, it is far more

than just a show pony. It

has by far class-leading

suspension, and with the

well-proven mechanicals

it is based on, it is another

model which will keep

Ford and Ranger market

leaders for considerable

time to come.

REAA - Disclosure rules

when selling a home

Real estate advertisements are designed to make

every property look like a dream buy.

That’s why they gloss over the

negative aspects and linger on the good

points, wanting you to be drawn in by

the sun-drenched location rather than

be put off by lack of garaging. It’s no

crime to gloss over a property’s quirks,

but lying by omission or design about

more serious matters is not allowed. If

you do this when selling your property

you may be at risk of being sued by the

purchaser.

When you’re ready to sell your

property it’s a good idea to get legal

advice about your obligations before

you sign an agency agreement. Most

of these agreements, which set out the

terms and conditions of your contract

with the real estate agent, require you

to confirm that you are unaware of any

undisclosed defects

in the property and

that you haven’t

withheld any

information about it.

As a seller, you must

also confirm that

your property has all

the necessary consents

and code compliance

certificates for any

building work. Any outstanding consents,

including ones that involve any works at a

neighbour’s property, should be disclosed

to the agent.

This is important for several reasons.

Licensed real estate agents have

clear obligations when it comes to

disclosure. They must not mislead a

seller or a potential buyer, or withhold

any information. While it’s not up

to the agent to uncover any hidden

defects in a property, they must tell any

prospective buyers what they know.

Under the Real Estate Agents Act

2008, if licensed real estate agents

suspect that a property may have a

defect then they are obliged to ask

the seller about it, or advise potential

buyers of any risks. For example, if a

property is next door to a proposed

new development, or if it’s in an area

that’s been subject to flooding, the agent

must tell prospective buyers rather than

turning a blind eye.

If your property may be prone to

weathertightness issues thanks to its

age or cladding, then the agent may

have to disclose this potential risk to

NEW LISTINGS

prospective buyers. If it doesn’t have

any weathertightness problems it may

be worth getting this confirmed in an

expert report by a qualified building

inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance, understands

the strict legal requirements of their

role and carries out their work in

accordance with the New Zealand

Property Inspection Standard. This will

help make the sale process as efficient

as possible.

If you know there are issues

with the property, whether

it’s something small like a

garage door not working

properly, or a bigger deal

like an unconsented deck, it’s best to

discuss them with the agent you are

working with. They can help you decide

how to manage the problem, whether

that means fixing it, or disclosing it to

potential buyers. However, a licensed

real estate agent must not disclose any

problems with your property to buyers

without getting your consent first. If a

seller doesn’t agree on a disclosure, the

agent is required to stop working for

them rather than disclose any defects

without consent.

These rules offer more protection to

buyers than the traditional attitude of

‘caveat emptor’ (buyer beware), which

assumed that the seller would always

know more than the buyer and any sale

was at the buyer’s risk. However, buyers

should always do their own research

about a property before signing a sale

and purchase agreement. Buyers should

also ask the agent about anything they

are concerned about, no matter how

trivial it may seem. It’s far better to get

an answer upfront than find out when

it’s too late.

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT ACT 1991 (RMA)

CHRISTCHURCH DISTRICT PLAN

PROPOSED PLAN CHANGE 1

WOOLSTON RISK MANAGEMENT AREA

Christchurch City Council has prepared proposed Plan Change 1 to the District Plan.

The Proposed Plan Change

Proposed Plan Change 1 seeks to provide updated District Plan provisions so that it:

(a) manages low probability but potentially high impact risks which may arise from

the location of sensitive activities, including preschools, in close proximity to the

two bulk fuel storage terminals;

(b) enables the ongoing efficient use of the two bulk fuel storage terminals and

prevents reverse sensitivity effects from arising; and

(c) requires other new discretionary or non-complying activities seeking to establish

in the area to consider the issue of risk and ensure they meet relevant risk

acceptance criteria appropriate to the nature of the proposed activities when

applying for resource consent but without the need to undertake individual

Quantitative Risk Assessments (QRAs).

Where to view the Plan Change

The proposed Plan Change and assessment required under section 32 of the RMA,

together with any supporting documents can be viewed during normal opening hours

at any of the Council’s Service Centre offices, Council libraries and on the Council

website: www.ccc.govt/planchange

Submissions

Any person may make a submission on this Plan Change. Written or electronic

submissions must be in accordance with the prescribed Form 5 of the Resource

Management (Forms, Fees and Procedure) Regulations 2003 or similar. Forms are

available from the Council Offices (hard copies) or from the Council website

(electronic) www.ccc.govt/planchange. For details of your nearest service centre or

library, please telephone 941 8999.

THE CLOSING DATE FOR RECEIPT OF SUBMISSIONS IS

WEDNESDAY, 17 APRIL 2019, BEFORE 5PM.

Process for public participation

Once all submissions have been received, they will be available for public inspection.

There will be an opportunity to make a submission in support of or in opposition to

any of these submissions but the RMA (Schedule 1, Clause 8) restricts who can make

a further submission. A Council hearing will then be arranged to consider all

submissions following which decisions will be made. Any person who has made a

submission has the right to appeal the decision to the Environment Court.

Note: The rules proposed in this Plan Change will have no legal effect until the Council

gives public notice of its decision on the Plan Change and matters raised in

submissions or the Environment Court makes an order which grants any rule

immediate effect (RMA, s86B).

If you’d like more information, please contact the City Planning Team at 941-8999 and

ask to speak to Marie Pollisco, Policy Planner, about Proposed Plan Change 1 or email

us at planchange@ccc.govt.nz
