Terror victims’

bogus doctor

hospital scare

• By Sophie Cornish

A WOMAN impersonating a

doctor trying to access March 15

terror attack victims has forced

additional security measures to

be put in place at Christchurch

Hospital.

Canterbury District Health

Board and police are working

together after concerns were raised

about the woman last week.

Said CDHB chief medical officer

Sue Nightingale yesterday: “We

have implemented additional security

measures and police were notified

last week. Our prime concern

is to protect the health, well-being

and privacy of our patients. Our

investigations are ongoing.”

The CDHB and police would not

answer further questions from The

Star.

However, The Star has learned

hospital staff have been told who

the woman is.

She is allowed to be on hospital

grounds, but if she is seen acting

suspiciously and if she is not there

for her own health reasons the

police were to be called.

The woman helped the Muslim

community after the attacks. She

has also claimed to be a victim

support worker.

Muslim Association of Canterbury

president Shagaf Khan said

his office had made aware of the

woman’s behaviour.

Mr Khan said he knew the

woman, who he had met at the

hospital following the attacks,

in which 51 people died after a

gunman opened fire at Al Noor

Mosque and the Linwood Islamic

Centre.

“She introduced herself and

said she was a Muslim . . . no one

knows her in the Muslim community

but if someone says they are

Muslim, we don’t suspect on that,”

he said.

“Basically she was working from

day one as a volunteer trying to

help out wherever she could. I

met her in the hospital after a few

weeks and she was there, helping

one of the families. She seemed all

right at that time.”

WORKING OUT how to avoid

potholes and bumpy roads will

soon easier with the development

of a website map.

The city council is working on

a new “roughness condition map”

which will show the condition of

each road, lane, street and drive

around the city.

Said city council planning

and delivery transport manager

Lynette Ellis: “The roughness

condition map will identify how

rough a road is, both as a measurable

number, and as a description

(eg good or poor).”

Ms Ellis said the technology is

used elsewhere in New Zealand

and there is no direct connection

between the map and the

earthquakes as the map will be

using recently measured data.

The driver for this is to share

factual information concerning

the transport network with the

community,” she said.

It will also be used to help

inform decision-making city

councillors and community

boards make with regard to

investing money and prioritising

infrastructure.

“Functionally this is using data

that council already holds, and

serving it onto the website via

new software that has been made

available via council’s geospatial

programme,” Ms Ellis said.

The map is intended to be live

on the website later this year.

The state of roads around the

city remains a hot topic eight

years after the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Last year’s city council Long

Term Plan was set to focus on the

“basics” – setting out to prioritise

improvements to roads and

footpaths alongside wastewater

infrastructure and drinking water

upgrades.

following police chase

A 29-year-old faces further

charges after he crashed into

a police car while fleeing. The

man failed to stop for police

at 3.30am on Saturday. The

chase was abandoned by police

due to the manner in which

the vehicle was being driven.

Shortly afterwards the vehicle

crashed into another police

car travelling to an unrelated

incident at the intersection of

Pages Rd and Rowan Ave. The

man will appear in the district

court on Friday facing charges

of operating a motor vehicle

recklessly, unlawful taking of

a motor vehicle, failure to stop

and failure to remain stopped

for an enforcement officer. Two

people were transported to

hospital. Meanwhile, a 19-yearold

was arrested after he crashed

a car during a police pursuit. He

appeared in the district court on

Monday facing charges of failing

to stop, driving in a dangerous

manner and driving when

forbidden. The vehicle crashed

at the intersection of Milns and

Would councillors take a pay cut for

Would city councillors

be happy to give

away a portion of their

salaries to increase

the remuneration of

community board

members? Louis Day

reports

SIX-FIGURE-earning city

councillors will have to consider

sacrificing some of their salaries

to boost the pay of community

board members.

The Remuneration Authority,

which sets the pay of city

councillors and community

board members, said if

community board remuneration

was to be increased, it would

have to come from the money

allocated towards the salaries of

city councillors.

After the elections, councils

around New Zealand will make

proposals on the allocation of

their governance pools, deciding

on the salaries of city councillors

and if any money from the pool

will be put aside for community

board members, which will be

finalised by the authority.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board members have complained

about what they are paid in

comparison to other community

boards.

FINANCE: The majority of city councillors say they would be open to discussing cutting

their own salaries to increase the pay of community board members.

They receive $9670 a year and

say it is not enough considering

the time and travel they put into

the work.

The current remuneration

model is set by population,

so community boards with

bigger populations get better

remuneration.

Half of the board say they may

not seek reelection because of

what they are paid.

City councillors are paid

$102,400 a year, Deputy Mayor

Andrew Turner receives $118,220

and Mayor Lianne Dalziel is on

$193,099.

The Star asked city councillors

this week what they thought of

the new pay system.

James Gough

David East

The majority said they would

be open to discussing a pay cut

to increase the remuneration of

community board members.

However, potential mayoral

candidate and city councillor

James Gough disagreed and

accused his colleagues of being

dishonest.

“Over election year you are

going to get people that are going

to give really politically correct

answers when what they are

wanting to say is no, but they

will go well I might consider it

because they don’t want to offend

anyone,” he said.

Cr Gough had his concerns

over cutting salaries.

“My only caution with that

is salary is going to be a factor

in attracting good quality

candidates,” he said.

“I would caution against low

remuneration for a councillors

role.”

City councillor David East

said it was a “cop out” from the

Remuneration Authority.

“Would they [the

Remuneration Authority] be

happy to cut their salary to make

the remuneration of community

boards any better?” he said.

City councillor Tim Scandrett

said he would vote to keep things

the way they were.

He felt community board

members, including those of the

Banks Peninsula Community

Board were fairly remunerated.

“Although they [Banks

Peninsula Community Board

members] travel a lot they do

have less people deal with,” he

said.

Cr Turner said he would

support a decision to sacrifice

part of the salaries.

community boards?

NEWS 5

“I think the level of pay for the

Banks Peninsula Community

Board is not adequate and

is certainly out of line when

compared to other city boards,”

he said.

City councillor Sara Templeton

said she would also be open to

city councillor salaries

being used to better

remunerate the community

boards.

She said she is concerned the

current model was preventing

people from running for

community boards.

“We need to enable a wide

range of people to stand for our

community boards, not just

in Banks Peninsula but across

the city, part of that is better

remuneration,” Cr Templeton

said.

City councillor Aaron

Keown felt the current level of

remuneration going to the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

needed to change.

“It’s like mum and dad saying

they love you and your sister

equally but when they die your

sister gets 70 per cent of the

house and you get 30 per cent,”

he said.

City councillors Jimmy Chen,

Anne Galloway, Vicki Buck,

Glenn Livingstone, Pauline

Cotter, Raf Manji, Deon Swiggs

and Phil Clearwater also

Andrew Turner Sara Templeton Ali Jones

said they would be open to a

discussion after the elections

about sacrificing a portion

of their salary to supplement

community boards.

City councillor Yani Johanson

did not respond to calls from The

Star.

Ms Dalziel was unavailable for

comment.

However, city councillor Mike

Davidson said the remuneration

of community board chairs as

well as city councillor salaries

needed to be looked at.

“What I always think is

potentially the chairs may be over

remunerated when you see

that they get double what

community board members get,”

he said.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

earns $46,310 a year, while board

members are paid $23,155.

But Ms Jones said she would

completely reject a reduction in

her remuneration.

“I feel that what I’m paid is

appropriate for the number

of hours, the accessibility, the

knowledge and experience

that I bring to the role,” she

said.

However, Ms Jones believed

community board members

did deserve to be better

remunerated.

“You can’t rob Peter to pay

Paul, you need to remunerate

people correctly in the first place

and you should not be cutting

wages of city councillors who are

already doing a huge job for the

money they are paid,” Ms Jones

said.

ALERT: Additional security measures have been

implemented at Christchurch Hospital.

More security put

in place at hospital

•From page 1

Mr Khan said the woman

told him she had been “working

on her own for a long time”

and every time she went to

the hospital, someone would

ask her what organisation she

represented.

“She seemed very disappointed.

I told her our work hadn’t been

that organised, so we took her as

part of our volunteer team and

then later we found out she was a

bit of a problem.”

Mr Khan said because of the

enormity of the March 15 attack,

many people were needed to

provide support.

There were a lot of people

helping us in this time of panic

and chaos and we were just coordinating

with them.”

The woman is no longer

volunteering for the association

since they were alerted she

“wasn’t behaving properly,” Mr

Khan said.

He wasn’t sure about the

specifics of what the problems or

her behaviour was.

“It is a very sensitive time,

victim support can’t keep up.

Because the sensitivity is so high,

any small thing can hurt the

families . . . we do sometimes

have people get upset over small

things and we do apologise for

that, we didn’t intend to mean any

harm,” he said.

Gough wants to look at selling libraries

• By Julia Evans

POTENTIAL mayoral candidate

James Gough wants to investigate

the possibility of selling off

libraries and service centres.

Cr Gough said a conversation

should be had over whether

suburban libraries and service

centres, excluding Turanga, would

be a better asset if they were sold

to private investors, with the city

council as long-term lease holders.

The value of city council’s library

and service centre network

is $65.3 million.

“It would realise significant

revenue in the short-term to

assist with paying down debt

and reducing rates – but it would

also be essential that council

expenditure is significantly

reduced too,” he said.

However, Cr Gough said it

would have to be paired with

pared back capital and operational

spending to have the best

outcome to reduce rates.

The proposal would need to be

a hand-in-glove approach where

increased revenue in the shortterm

was coupled with a significant

reduction in capital and

operational spending as well.”

Cr Gough has been a proponent

of asset sales.

But in September the city

council voted against a proposed

review into how much could

be made from selling stakes in

ASSETS: (Clockwise) – Fendalton, Bishopdale, Shirley and Upper Riccarton libraries.

businesses such as the Lyttelton

Port Company and broadband

provider Enable.

It is a conversation starter echoed

by the Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce in its

submission to the city council’s

Annual Plan based off a similar

model in Perth.

“I think there are opportunities

for the council to take a

good, hard look at some of the

assets that they do own and work

out whether or not they need

to own them or whether there

is a different model for that operation,”

chief executive Leeann

Watson said.

Ms Watson said it should be

looked at it on a case by case basis

– there should not be a “hard

and fast” model, which was supported

by Mayor Lianne Dalziel.

“I used the example of the

Linwood Library being in the

Eastgate Mall and the fact that

we jointly own this building with

Ngai Tahu,” Ms Dalziel said.

“It is enabling of people to

access the library in the same

hours that the mall is open.”

Cr Gough is considering running

for mayor .

“I’ll probably make an announcement

in the near future,”

he said.

The People’s Choice chairman

Keir Leslie, which opposes asset

sales, said libraries were a core

council business.

The ideal that we would sell

off libraries in our own city . . .

would be a bad deal for the ratepayer

in the long run.”

Chase Commercial real estate

agent Brendan Chase said the

buildings would be “highly

saleable and sought after” with

a reliable and safe tenant in the

city council.

The question to ask is are

those libraries going to be required

in the long-term, if they

are you’ll pay for them over and

over again,” Mr Chase said.

Cr Gough said the projected

rates increase of about 50 per

cent in the next 10 years is an

unsustainable “house of cards”

that would “epically fail.”

“Average incomes are not rising

anywhere near this quickly

so the system is fundamentally

broken.”

• By Sophie Cornish

A MAN hailed as a hero for

his role in the Port Hills Fires

has been convicted of nine sex

charges including rape and

sexual conduct of a young

person.

Nikora Martin, 37, made

headlines in March 2017 when

he shared videos via Snapchat

of him creating fire breaks in a

bulldozer close to the

wildfires, which burnt for 66

days, in order to stop the fire

from spreading and destroying

homes.

Martin got so close to the

fires, helicopters with monsoon

buckets had to dump water on

him so he could keep working.

At the time of the events,

Senior Constable Rod Fraser

called Martin “a hero.”

Following an eight day trial

in the district court which

ended yesterday, a jury found

Martin guilty of nine sex charges

involving two victims after 11

hours of deliberation.

Five charges were of sexual

conduct with a young person,

one of sexual violation of rape,

one of sexual violation by

unlawful connection and two of

sexual conduct of a young person

under 16.

The offending involved kissing

and touching one girl from age

of 11, and digitally penetrating

and raping her, and for touching

another woman.

Most of the charges were

representative, which indicates

the offending had occurred more

than once.

The jury found Martin not

guilty on 11 more charges which

were part of the trial.

These included three charges

of sexual violation by rape, six

of sexual violation by unlawful

sexual connection, one charge

of indecent assault and one of

sexual conduct with a young

person.

He was discharged on one

charge because the jury could not

agree.

The offending took place

between 2010 and 2016. Evidence

was called from 14 Crown

witnesses.

Martin was remanded in

custody until sentencing on July

10. Judge Paul Kellar said he

should expect a “long-term” jail

sentence.

In April 2017, Martin attended

Intersection

upgrade

brings in

feedback

• By Jess Gibson

A PROPOSAL to upgrade

a contentious Harewood

intersection has received more

than 172 submissions since it

opened on Monday.

Public consultation is open

until June 10 for two options to

improve safety at the Breens,

Harewood and Gardiners Rds

junction.

To compare, the city council

received 247 submissions on its

draft Annual Plan over a month.

Option one, which is the city

council’s preferred option, is to

make Gardiners and Breens Rds a

left-turn in and left-turn out only

by closing the median on Harewood

Rd. Option two is to install

traffic lights at the intersection.

City councillor Aaron Keown

has been campaigning to have

traffic lights installed at the

intersection for three years.

Cr Keown said the preferred

option would introduce major

issues by cutting off Harewood

Rd and forcing people to drive

around the block or make

dangerous U-turns.

FROM FLOWERS to poignant

notes and wreaths, tributes

in the aftermath of a tragedy

traditionally take tangible forms.

However, these days it is also

possible to express grief and

solidarity with someone else

through the click of a button.

University of Otago social

anthropologist Susan Wardell

is studying the phenomenon of

“online care’’ after the mosque

shootings last month, in which

51 people died.

“One of my areas is the

concept of grief and ritual,’’ she

said.

“[Online support] looks a little

different, but it is kind of a ritual

procedure.’’

The internet was no longer a

place where you just absorbed

what was going on around you,

but you made ``little choices’’ to

connect with others or indicate

your affiliations or views

through the click of a mouse.

Dr Wardell was hoping to

get a mixture of Muslims and

non-Muslims, but would speak

to anyone who wanted to talk

about how they had engaged

with digital media following the

shootings.

“I’ve deliberately left it broad

at this stage,’’ she said.

She was aware that the pain

of the attacks was still raw and

was initially unsure whether to

Attacks prompt online care study

RESEARCH: Social anthropologist Susan Wardell, of

proceed with the study.

“It’s not always the space for

us [academics] to play in and

analyse things,’’ she said.

However, anthropologists were

trained to try to understand the

social world, and she felt in the

end it was her role to study the

subject, Dr Wardell said.

She would focus on speaking

to 20 or 30 people, and she

wanted to “go deep” rather than

“go wide”.

Already people had

approached her saying they were

interested in the study, and they

were not the people you might

expect – Dr Wardell said while

she had interest from teens, she

had also had an 80-year-old

come forward.

She would get the project

concluded by November this

year, when she was to present

a paper at the American

conference in Vancouver,

Canada.

Stadium funding U-turn from Selwyn

• By Anan Zaki

A CANTERBURY mayor has

changed his tune over ratepayers

funding a new multi-use stadium

in Christchurch.

Last year, Selwyn District

Mayor Sam Broughton said the

district should

help fund

the stadium,

which is expected

to cost

between $384

million and

$561 million.

But he now

Sam

Broughton

says Selwyn

ratepayers

should

not contribute. Mr Broughton

told The Star this week the city

council “missed an opportunity”

when it approved $253 million

for the project in September.

The balance of the money will

be from the Government.

Mr Broughton said if the city

council wants help from Selwyn

and other councils in the region

that would have been the time to

raise it.

Mr Broughton revealed his

U-turn on funding the stadium

after he was put on the spot

about the topic last week.

He was asked by city councillor

Yani Johanson about the issue

at an Annual Plan submission in

Christchurch.

Cr Johanson asked if both

councils should work together on

the proposed stadium.

“So you’re happy for us

[Christchurch] to pay for the

whole stadium?” Cr Johanson

asked.

In response, Mr Broughton

said he could not answer the

question as the district hasn’t

been asked to pay.

He clarified his position to The

Star on Monday.

“At the moment

Christchurch and the [central]

Government can pay for what

they are wanting to build,

so there’s no need for extra

discussion.”

Mr Broughton said his viewpoint

was based on discussions

with ratepayers and believing

that some things could be done

better together as a region.

The Selwyn District Council

has no plans to discuss a contribution

as it has not been asked

for funding.

In response to Mr Broughton’s

comments to The Star, Cr

Johanson said he understood

from city council staff that until

an investment case is finished,

the city council would not know

what size or type of stadium will

NO GO:

mayor Sam

Broughton

and central

the district. ​

be the best to build.

Once that work is completed,

the city council would talk to the

other neighbouring councils, Cr

Johanson said.

“I welcome that [working

collaboratively] also in regards

to the multi-use arena as per

the current process through the

Mayoral Forum and the stakeholder

workshops which Mr

Broughton participates in,” Cr

Johanson said.

The Star spoke to other

district’s after Mr Broughton’s

comments.

Waimakariri Mayor David

Ayers said his council hasn’t

been approached about the

stadium.

“He said the district council

is ‘not interested’ in approaches

unless other councils from the

region are involved, he said.

The discussion needed to

be Canterbury-wide, Mr Ayers

said.

“It’s not just a matter for

Waimakariri and Selwyn.”

Hurunui District Council has

not been approached to discuss

the stadium either.

Its Mayor Winton Dalley said

in response to Mr Broughton

that his council is already “well

advanced” in its Annual Plan

process.

“It is unlikely that a request

[towards the stadium] would be

accepted at this stage, and it is

not included in our Long Term

Plan. In addition, this would

be an issue of significance and

would need full public consultation,”

Mr Dalley said.

Both Mr Broughton and Mr

Ayers said Environment Canterbury

was the only local body that

could set a regional rate to fund

the stadium.

But ECan has previously stated

it did not include the stadium in

its 2018-2028 Long Term Plan as

it was never asked for funding

by the city council and central

Government. Its next Long

Term Plan review is in 2021.

FOR THE last week or so, I’ve

one short nap a day now.

Gone are the days of regular

quiet coffee breaks or enjoying

lunch without the world’s cutest

magpie lurking about.

is incredibly easy to get down at

bedtime. Like “in-a-deep-sleepbefore-you-even

easy.

As I write this she is deeply

and peacefully asleep and got

same time as she normally does.

Call for better bird protection

• By Matt Slaughter

MORE NEEDS to be done to

protect birdlife around the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary.

The Avon-Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust says dogs,

drones and

people continue

to be a threat

to the 118 bird

species, which

call the estuary

home, including

godwits.

Tim Lindley

The Coastal-

Burwood

Community Board will now

investigate what it can do to better

protect these birds after trust

members expressed concerns at a

meeting on Monday.

The estuary became part of the

East Asian-Australasian Flyway

network last year, a network,

which protects migratory waterbirds

across wetlands in about 20

countries.

Trust member Tim Lindley

said the birds, which used the

estuary faced threats that people

may have not been aware of.

“Birds do see dogs as wolves

. . . it’s quite important that

they’re not disturbed by dogs.”

Mr Lindley said the estuary’s

proximity to the eastern suburbs

in both the Coastal-Burwood

and Linwood-Central-Heathcote

wards made protecting them

even more important.

The birds stop feeding for 10

minutes when they are interrupted

by humans.

“Because this international

flyway is in an urban area, it’s

only going to get worse.

“It’s dinner time for the

birds and we need to keep it

that way.”

Board members agreed the

signage currently in place telling

people to be respectful of birds

when around the estuary needed

to be improved.

Board member Linda Stewart

suggested signage should give

more specific information on the

types of behaviour and activities

that disturbed birds and how

this could be avoided.

now faces

driving charge

• By Sophie Cornish

A MAN who brutally killed a

policeman nearly 30 years ago is

facing a careless driving charge

over a serious head-on smash

which hospitalised three people.

Richard Thomas Lakich will

reappear in the district court on

May 23, following the crash on

State Highway 1 near Amberley,

in February, where one person

had to be cut free from a vehicle.

Lakich, now in his late 40s,

savagely attacked Senior Constable

Peter Umbers in May 1990,

beating him to death with his own

baton.

Lakich was seriously injured in

the February crash and had to be

flown by helicopter to Christchurch

Hospital, where he remained

for more than two weeks.

Two others were moderately

injured and were taken to hospital

by ambulance.

Police said a black Toyota,

which had been travelling north,

crossed the centre line and hit

a sport utility vehicle that was

heading south. The Toyota spun

around hitting a truck, which was

also travelling south.

Lakich pleaded guilty and was

sentenced to life imprisonment for

the murder of Senior Constable

Umbers.

Hollywood to Christchurch

New cinema

owner follows

his heart

• By Julia Evans

A FORMER writer for major

Hollywood film studios who left

the bright lights of Los Angeles

for love is getting ready to open

the new Arts Centre cinema.

Max Hoffman co-owns the

Lumiere Cinemas with cinephile

Nick Paris. It is expected to show

its first film soon

– although it was

planned to open

by Easter.

“It will open

very soon, within

the next couple of

months, but we

Max

Hoffman

really want to get

it right.”

The pair have

been hands-on throughout

the whole process, travelling

to China to work with the

manufacturer on every

centimetre of the Lumiere’s fit

out.

“We went over and sat in

the chairs. You can try and

order things online, but we had

everything custom done.”

But before moving to

Christchurch after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

Mr Hoffman worked as a

screenwriter for 20th Century

Fox and Disney studios.

He was not credited for the

work, which included re-writing

scripts. “I was an in-house writer

with the writers’ guild for 10

years . . . it’s hard work and, if I’m

honest, it was thankless.”

Mr Hoffman, who lives

in Redcliffs, said he left the

Hollywood industry five years

before moving to Christchurch.

news online at www.star.kiwi

AT THE MOVIES: The new Lumiere Cinemas will open soon

in the Arts Centre.

“I’d done it. It was a hard job

and, as a writer, I just didn’t have

anything else to say,” he said.

Then I met my husband, he

was a Kiwi travelling in LA.”

Mr Hoffman left his

home in LA to live with his

husband Sebastian Stapleton

in Christchurch after the

earthquakes.

“I said I’m going to move there

and help you. I’d never been here

before, I didn’t know where it

was, which is embarrassing to say

now.”

Mr Hoffman then fell in love

again.

“It truly is the best city in the

world. There’s no better city than

Christchurch.”

He met Mr Paris on a visit to

Christchurch’s iconic Alice in

Videoland, which is where the

idea for Lumiere Cinema was

hatched.

Mr Paris has worked in local

cinema for the last 40 years –

from being a cinema projectionist

to helping ensure the Isaac

Theatre Royal was equipped for

screen movies.

“I got to meet Nick, who has

this incredible passion for film

and my husband, and I knew we

had to get behind him,” he said.

“Christchurch is very fortunate

to have Nick running and

programming the Lumiere, as

his depth of knowledge in film is

most impressive and people who

love movies will be able to benefit

from that when they talk with

him.”

When it opens, the cinema

will feature two theatres and a

bar overlooking the Botanic

Gardens.

Mr Hoffman said it would also

host outreach programmes for

prospective film-makers.

They used to do that at the

Arts Centre, so we want to bring

it back,” he said.

THE CITY council has

apologised for failing to prevent a

Sumner street from flooding after

the heavy rainfall last week.

The apology comes after the

city council promised action

to prevent further flooding on

Marriner St.

In May last year, a city council

spokesperson said the drain

outlet, which is located on

Scarborough Beach, would be

cleared prior to future weather

events.

However, the drain was not

cleared on Monday last week,

which resulted in the flooding.

“Unfortunately, the action plan

was not followed correctly for the

Marriner St pipe outlet due to a

miscommunication between the

city council

and the

which we are

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham labelled the

city council’s inability to carry

out its own action plan as

“embarrassing.”

Dr Latham said this was one of

a series of flooding events since

the city council formulated an

action plan last year.

The current approach

of manually clearing beach

drainage outlets is costing

ratepayers thousands of dollars

and it appears to be not working

particularly well because

drainage outlets are buried in

sand or they cannot be located,”

he said.

“This approach is not

sustainable and given the recent

storm event, it is now time for

the city council to acknowledge

that the current methodology is

not effective and to investigate a

more effective plan of action and

solution to this problem.”

The city council currently

spends $20,000 a year to keep

the drains clear prior to weather

events.

Mr Mullen said it is

investigating whether the beach

level is likely to fall, meaning

sand is less likely to block drains,

or whether longer-term solutions

may be necessary.

Let the battle begin

Advertising

FeAture

vs

Bryan Staples

Claims Resolution

Service Ltd

Since the earthquakes there has been some buzz around

class actions. Recently Grant Cameron from GCA Lawyers

has been trying to bring what he calls a “Class Action”

against my company Claims Resolution Service Ltd. As a

result of GCA Lawyers media barrage on myself and my

company some people have asked questions about this

action. I thought the best way to answer these questions

and others would be to give my opinion of class actions,

particularly as they apply here in New Zealand. I will

endeavour to dispel some of the myths and give some

hard facts. If anyone wants to discuss this with me further

please email me at bryan@thestaplesgroup.co.nz so we

can arrange a time to meet.

Class Actions

First, let me set the record straight, there is no such thing

as a class action allowed in New Zealand. Many people

including lawyers that should know better use this term to

leverage off the back of media hysteria. What is allowed

in New Zealand is a Representative Action, this is very

different to a class action. Now I am not qualified to give

you advice on what is the difference between the two,

so I suggest you see an independent lawyer that can

explain the ramifications to your particular situation, both

the upside and the downside, before you register for any

supposed class action. If someone tells you to join a class

action, be on guard, they don’t know what they are talking

about, get advice from an independent lawyer before

you put your name to anything. No earthquake related

representative actions have ever succeeded in New

Zealand.

Why are Representative Actions necessary?

Let me explain it like this, The Class Action phenomenon

is an American invention and still mostly only operates

in America. In New Zealand they are not allowed. The

idea behind bringing a Representative Action is so a

number of people who all have the same issues against a

government or a company can have their claims bundled

into one action. This is supposed to save costs and

time, however, in practice this is not always the case. In

practice, particularly with earthquake actions its usually

preferable for individuals to take individual claims as we

have seen in the action against Southern Response.

If I join a Representative Action (Class Action)

will it cost me anything?

The simple answer is YES. Whether you win or lose

the action, it will cost you money. Just like any legal

proceedings, even if you win, you can only recover a

portion of your costs. And if you lose you must pay all your

costs plus a portion of the costs of the winning party. So,

win or lose it will cost you. Get independent legal advice

before registering for any representative (class) action.

What if there is a litigation funder in place, will it

still cost me money?

Again, the answer is YES, it will still cost you money.

Nobody does anything for nothing. Most funders like

ourselves promote a “No Win, No Fee”. What this means

is if you lose your case, you will not have to pay the funder

their fee, but you could and very likely will be exposed

to the costs of running a case. If a lawyer running a

Representative Action (class action) cannot tell you what

costs you will likely be up for then you really need to

consider if it’s worth taking the risk.

If you win your case, you must pay the funder their

commission plus any costs they incurred along the way.

Remember the lawyer promoting the Representative

Action will always get paid, win or lose the case. You must

ask yourself, is it worth it to take the risk? Are you just

replacing our fee to fight your EQ claim with the fee and

costs of GCA Lawyers?

What if the company we are suing is not

government and not a large business like an

insurance company are there any different

considerations?

Yes, there are, most Representative Actions (class actions)

in New Zealand are against government entities or very

large businesses. However, when they are against a small

family owned business it is very important to ask your

own lawyer how this could affect the outcome for your

case. Representative actions against small family owned

businesses are almost unheard of in New Zealand and just

as rare in the home of class actions, America. However,

even in America there are examples of companies that

have gone into liquidation after losing a class action. The

result for the members after years of litigation there is no

money for anyone, and the members of the action are left

seriously out of pocket.

Will a Representative Action (class action)

address all my issues, or will I still have to take

individual action?

The answer to this question is very complicated. I can

point you to a Representative Action (class action)

Grant Cameron from GCA Lawyers took out against the

Government insurance company Southern Response

back in 2015. At the time Grant Cameron was quoted in

the media making claims to the effect, “it was a $1 billion

class action case, with potentially 3,000 claimants”. The

facts were far from that, only 47 people joined this action

initially and after three years there were only 24 people

left still fighting. After these three long hard-fought years

it was agreed by GCA Lawyers that it would be better for

individuals to mediate their own claims individually against

Southern Response. Remember GCA lawyers were paid

their fees all through those three years. I can’t say enough

how important it is to get independent legal advice before

registering for any Representative (class) Action. We know

of individuals involved in that case that are now in a further

legal fights with GCA lawyers and the funder over the

costs they are being charged.

Who is the real winner in a Representative (class)

Action?

It’s no secret that lawyers are always the winners in

any legal action, in Representative (class) Actions it’s no

different. I point to Grant Cameron for examples of this

only because he has been reported in The Press as a

“class action specialist”. Let’s look at his very first win for

a representative action back in the early 2000’s. Grant

Cameron won a reported $6.5 million compensation

settlement against the Government’s Lake Alice mental

institution. It apparently took eight years of court action.

Grant Cameron reportedly took $2.5 million in legal fees

and costs. It was reported in the NZ Herald in 2001 that

Grant Cameron

GCA Lawyers

at least one of the member of the action was not too

happy. NZ Herald reported in October 2001 under the

headlines, “Former patient of Lake Alice angry at legal

fees”. The article reported, “Mr. Perkins, who was given

electric-shock treatment at Lake Alice when he was 14 in

1973, was awarded $64,912.28 in compensation but had

to pay $25,949.90 to Grant Cameron Associates.” Grant

Cameron charged this poor man 40% of his win.

So again, I say, get independent legal advice before

registering for any Representative Action.

What if after a time I want to withdraw from the

Representative Action (class action), will I have to

pay any costs?

To answer this question, I again must turn to the “class

action specialist” Grant Cameron and the Representative

(class) Action he took against Southern Response back

in 2015. I know of two claimant’s that withdrew from the

action; one is still fighting the enormous bill she received

when she withdrew from the action. The Press reported

on 21 September 2016 that seven claimants withdrew

from the GCA Lawyers action against Southern Response.

One claimant a geography professor at Canterbury

University said to the Press, “He and his wife now bitterly

regretted not getting a lawyer to vet the agreement. They

had signed up for an earlier class action and assumed

the agreement would be in their interests.”. They further

reported, “a funding arrangement for the litigation has left

him with an “absurd” fee to pay”

Please, please get independent legal advice

before registering for any Representative (class)

Action, it will be money well spent. Get your

own lawyer to ask the hard questions of any

Representative (class) Action lawyer before you

register.

Grant Cameron has engaged a PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR

to directly contact our clients to try to get them to register

for this action. He will tell you it won’t cost you anything to

register and even when you say “no, I’m not interested”

he will still tell you he is going to send you the documents

anyway. In my opinion this PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR is

illegally registering clients to the representative action

without their consent. It smacks of the use of PRIVATE

INVESTIGATORS by insurance companies. I also am of

the opinion that Grant Cameron is in contempt of court

by contacting our clients directly without approval from

the court. At the very least he seems to be breaching

everyone’s privacy. Be warned, do not register until you

get independent legal advice. Complain to the law society

if you are contacted by a PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR

from GCA Lawyers or simply email me directly bryan@

thestaplesgroup.co.nz

GCA Lawyers please contact me directly and I will

see if we can help resolve your issues.

Historic yacht for scrap heap

Kia Ora

far too

damaged

to save

• By Louis Day

A BADLY damaged historic

racing yacht stranded in

Lyttelton will not be restored.

The 121-year-old Kia Ora,

which has been sitting on

Lyttelton Port Company land for

more than 20 years on the corner

of Norwich Quay and Donald St,

will be destroyed.

LPC planned to dispose of the

vessel unless the owner came

forward and agreed to pay for its

removal.

Family members of Robert

Bryson, the last owner of

the boat, have decided not to

remove it because of its poor

condition.

They have salvaged pieces of it

as mementoes instead.

Ian Knewstubb, former

chairman of the now-defunct

Norwich Quay Historic Precinct

Society, said the vessel was of

high significance.

“A boat built not long after the

Kia Ora called The Rainbow in

Auckland has just been restored

and they spent $800,000 on

it. That is how these boats are

looked upon in other parts of the

country. Down here it is different,

I don’t think anyone gives a

hoot about maritime heritage in

Canterbury,” he said.

In 1898, Lyttelton joiner

John Collins built Kia Ora at

his business on the corner of

Canterbury and London Sts.

It was sunk in the 1960s and

was moved by Mr Bryson to a

years.

vacant section in Locksley Ave,

Dallington.

It was then gifted to the

Norwich Quay Historic Precinct

Society and relocated to its

current location where it has

deteriorated to a condition

beyond repair.

Mr Bryson’s granddaughter

Emma Graham said the Kia Ora

was well past the point of

saving.

“It was borderline 20 years

ago, so the ship has sailed so to

speak,” she said.

news online at www.star.kiwi

“I would love to have that

boat fixed and going again,

but it is just beyond repair. My

grandfather should have fixed

it all those years ago, but he had

so many other projects and also

heart problems to deal with.”

LPC port services and security

manager Tony Simpson saw the

boat as a potential risk to the

public.

“Our first step was to place

fencing around the Kia Ora, but

we believe this is an inadequate

long-term option to mitigate the

risk, as the stability of the way

it is propped up and the

condition of the hull itself led us

to believe that it could

collapse,” he said.

The vessel was designed by

Professor RJ Scott, head of

Canterbury College’s engineering

school and cousin of Antarctic

explorer Captain Robert Falcon

Scott.

The Kia Ora would go on to

win the annual regatta in 1900

against staunch opposition, such

as The Rainbow.

Lyttelton

cruise ship

berth

doubts

• By Louis Day

LYTTELTON business owners

are not convinced over the

economic benefits the new cruise

berth will bring.

It was announced last week the

Lyttelton Port Company’s new

cruise berth is scheduled to open

in November next year.

While smaller vessels

have continued to visit,

large cruise vessels have been

unable to berth at Lyttelton Port

since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake. With the new cruise

berth in place, LPC will be

able to welcome cruise vessels

which cater for more than 5000

passengers and 2000 staff.

However, business owners are

concerned tourists will bypass the

port town and go directly into the

central city.

“I don’t know if it will have

any impact because the ones that

currently come, they just ship

everyone to town anyway. On

days when cruise ships come we

notice no difference in business,”

said Shroom Room owner Koryn

Hope. Eruption Brewing coowner

Steve Leftly said cruise

ships currently brought little to

his business.

“We have only been exposed to

the smaller ones [cruise ships] and

they only tend to have a handful

of people that actually come into

Lyttelton,” he said.

ChristchurchNZ destination

development manager Anton

Wilke said it was working on a

bus schedule that would benefit

the local economy.

There is ongoing liaison

between ChristchurchNZ and

LPC with regard to how the

transfers could look.”

They were responsible for theft,

Senior Constable Bruce Ward

have now joined the core group

from Rolleston.

They congregate [in Riccarton

and the central city] and are

smoking cannabis and stuff like

that. Minor offending as well,

like shoplifting at Westfield Riccarton,”

he said. Police suspect

adults are supplying the group in

Riccarton with alcohol and drugs.

The youths were first spotted in

Riccarton about a month ago,

police said, and currently none of

them are attending school.

Police have been organising

Fendalton Open-Air School,

which came second with a score

of 94 points.

The St Martin’s School group

in third was not far off, with 93

points.

Selwyn House champions

Penelope Sutton, 8, Amelia West,

Penelope said the quiz was

“nerve-racking but fun.”

THEATRE/ARTS 21

Gender bending role for Phoebe

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

BEING THE first in the country

to land the leading role in a

highly-acclaimed production

exploring gender identity is a

“once in a lifetime opportunity”

for Phoebe Hurst.

The Christchurch-based

performer plays the complex

cross-gender role of Yitzhak

in the New Zealand premiere

of Hedwig and the Angry Inch,

which is debuting at The Court

Theatre on Saturday.

The show, which is described

by Rolling Stone magazine as

the “best rock musical ever” and

received four Tony Awards, tells

the story of German emigrant

Hedwig – a rock’n’roll singer and

victim of a botched sex change

operation.

Hurst’s role of Yitzhak is

the husband of the show’s

protagonist Hedwig – played by

Adam Rennie.

“It is not something I have

done a lot of (cross-gender

acting), but it is something I am

very excited to do because it is

quite a different energy, playing a

man,” Hurst, 29, said.

She said it is really exciting to

have a show that is important

to the queer community staged

at The Court Theatre, which

is one of the longest running

companies in New Zealand.

But she wanted to stress it is

a story anybody can relate to,

while it is about gender identity,

it is also about people learning to

be okay with who they are.

“It is about discovering

yourself and realising you don’t

necessarily need to have somebody

else there to be complete,”

she said.

Hurst has been on her own

journey, having opened up last

year about living with depression

and the difficulties of making a

career in the theatre industry.

“It is something (depression)

that a lot of people in the arts

industry particularly deal with. I

guess my approach is to be really

transparent and frank about it,”

she said.

While there were a number

of other factors which have

contributed to her depression,

she said it is common in the

theatre industry because of

the constant rejection, the

vulnerability performers

experience on stage and the

READY TO ROCK:

Phoebe Hurst

rehearsing for

Hedwig and the

Angry Inch. ​

financial difficulty.

But Hurst said she doesn’t

want to do anything else for

work unless she has to.

“I continue acting because I

love it. I love to sing, I love acting

and I love putting on different

people’s skins and working out

who they are,” she said.

She stresses the best way

to take away the pressure the

theatre industry faces is by

people actually getting out and

watching performances in the

city.

Hurst said there are lots

of great companies putting

on unique work including

Blackboard Theatre

Company, Orange Studios,

Little Andromeda and Two

Productions.

Originally from North

Canterbury, Hurst attended the

Hagley Theatre Company before

going on to Toi Whakaari, which

she graduated from in 2011.

She decided to move back to

the city in 2016 so she could

continue contributing to the

theatre scene and to be with her

family.

Inch runs at The Court

An evening of great music with the

The UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra presents

Worlds Apart

Saturday 11 May

Christchurch Boys’ High School Hall,

Featuring music by:

Lilburn, Gershwin, Greig, Tichelli

and Prokofiev

Tickets from Eventfinda

$20 adults

ARTC8330

There’s something very special about hearing

a full orchestra of young people perform

some of the great classics.

So come and join our young musicians,

conducted by Helen Renaud, in a concert

of wonderful music from around the world.

From the beautiful lakes and mountains

of New Zealand with Lilburn’s Aotearoa

Overture to the noisy and bustling streets of

Paris in Gershwin’s American in Paris this

will be a concert of wonderful melodies and

great contrasts.

Our talented strings will perform Holberg

Suite by Greig, a five-movement work based

on 18th century dances before the wind,

brass and percussion of the concert band will

entertain with a rollicking and humorous

jazz inspired Blue Shades by Tichelli. Finally

from Russia, one of Prokofiev’s most wellknown

works and his first foray into film

music, the Lieutenant Kijé Suite. A concert

not to be missed.

The UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra

was founded in the 1970s and is the senior

orchestra of the Christchurch School of

Music. The orchestra is a musically and

technically advanced orchestra for the city’s

musical youth to widen and develop their

musical and performing experience.

Each year the orchestra performs 3-4

concerts and can often be called on to

perform at corporate and community events.

Professional players from the Christchurch

Symphony Orchestra and the New Zealand

Symphony Orchestra regularly work with

students at sectionals to coach them in the

nuances of orchestral playing.

In 2015 the CSM signed a sponsorship

agreement with the University of Canterbury

for the youth orchestra which is an exciting

development in the orchestra’s history. This

sponsorship gives naming rights to the

university and ensures the players can have

access to interesting repertoire and essential

equipment.

The musicians of the UC Christchurch

Youth Orchestra under their conductor have

worked hard to bring this concert to life so

come along and enjoy a wonderful evening

of great music.

THE WEATHER has cooled and

days are shorter, but there are still

tasks to be done in the garden, so

pop on your gumboots and get

stuck in.

Preparing your garden

Because plants draw nutrients

from the soil as they grow, as a

general rule you should incorporate

fresh compost into your

garden before planting out each

season. This improves soil structure,

provides important nutrients

and food for vital soil micro-organisms

and helps plants develop

strong healthy root systems.

Vege patch

Stagger plantings for regular

harvesting rather than having

your vegetables mature all at

once. Keep planting out seedlings

of broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower,

spinach and silverbeet. Seeds to

sow directly into the soil include;

broad beans, onions, peas, radish

and spinach. Autumn temperatures

can drop suddenly, wiping

out young plants. A forecast of 4

deg C or lower means you should

protect against frost. Use a frost

cloth (or old net curtains) over

the garden or re-purpose plastic

bottles, flower pots or jars and put

them upside down over individual

plants (remove any coverings in

the morning).

Rotate vege crops and every few

years “rest” parts of your garden

their leaves.

by sowing a ‘green crop.’ This

helps provide organic Nitrogen

naturally and protects beds over

winter. Sow common lupin and

mustard directly into the soil.

Once 30cm high (and before

flowering), pull up plants, chop

them up with a spade and dig

them back into the soil. Leave to

break down in the soil for six to

eight weeks before planting out.

Strawberries

Mound soil into rows and place

strawberry plants in the ground

approximately 15cm apart.

Mounding improves drainage

and allows the soil to warm up

quicker and maintain this warmth

throughout the growing period.

news online at www.star.kiwi

Flower garden

Some trusted winter flowering

annuals to plant include;

Alyssum, Aquilegia, Calendulas,

Cineraria, Cornflowers, Larkspur,

Pansies, Primulas, Stock, Violas

and wallflowers. Most perennials

are dormant this time of the year,

so it’s a good time to divide them

or move them to another part of

the garden. New seasonal perennials

are in garden centres so it’s a

great time for planting and trying

new varieties.

Fruit trees

Start pruning of pip and stone

fruit trees including apples,

apricots, nectarines, peaches and

plums. Ensure pruning shears/

secateurs or loppers are nice and

sharp and have been cleaned.

Spray pruned fruit trees with a

copper compound to help prevent

reinfection of fungal diseases in

spring.

Roses

Where leaves have fallen in

cooler areas, rose plants can be

pruned. Straight after pruning,

apply a clean-up spray of horticulture

oil and an application of

copper oxychloride (not at the

same time). Garden hygiene is

very important with roses so remove

any dead leaves or diseased

wood from the ground, but don’t

put them in the compost bin. Remove

them from the property as

Bulbs

This is the last month to get

Retreating

into a shell

Do you have a family member who

is starting to shy away from family

gatherings? Are they saying “Nah”, more

often than “Yeah”, when a social function is

suggested? They may not want to admit it,

but they may be have developed a problem

with their hearing. Retreating into your

shell is a common coping mechanism for

those with hearing difficulties.

The most common type

of hearing loss is due

to gradual damage to

minute nerve endings

in the inner ear. This

causes a reduction of

speech clarity, with

the beginning and

endings of words or

sentences dropping

away. This is incredibly

frustrating, as it can sound

like people are not speaking

clearly. The biggest problem,

however, is that background noise can be

heard just as loud as always; meaning that

understanding conversation in a group or

social situation can be very difficult.

As a rule, most people do not like to admit

to having hearing difficulties; so when in a

situation where conversation is becoming

hard to follow, most people will try to

Refurbish,

The brake specialists at Safe R Brakes

Ltd recommend you flush brake fluid

periodically – say every 2 years. The

issue is that brake fluid absorbs moisture.

Moisture in brake fluid leads to a number

of problems. For example the moisture

can boil when the brakes get hot, forming

steam bubbles which reduce braking

performance. Moisture and dirt in brake

components can also lead to corrosion

and other issues that can be expensive to

repair.

Where possible, Safe R Brakes reuses

existing components that would otherwise

be disposed of. This is much better for the

environment than using new ones. Some

examples are; machining disc rotors and

drums that have become out of round so

they as good as new, relining brake shoes

which is bit like putting new soles on your

shoes, rebuilding cables that have become

frayed or broken, repairing ABS units that

have developed a fault.

Brakes. While mostly very reliable, ABS

The value of

the Gold Card

The SuperGold Card is a discounts and

concessions card for seniors and veterans,

in recognition of their contribution to

New Zealand society.

What you receive by being a SuperGold

Card member:

• discounts and offers from more than

8,900 businesses and more than 13,700

outlets nationwide

• government concessions (including

free off-peak public transport)

• discounted services from your local

councils

The SuperGold Card offers a connection

to people who become new friends as well

as a trusted resource for information about

life’s daily questions.

The website is located at https://www.

supergold.govt.nz/ for an application or to

sign up for their newsletter. Their website

it a tremendous resource which provides

answers for topics of interest or concern.

Their monthly newsletter offers

information about important topics.

This month mentions that the shingles

immunisation has been added to the

National Immunisation Schedule and will

be free for people aged 65 from 1 April this

year. Under the changes the shingles

immunisation will also be free for the

next two years for people aged 66 to

80.

Every year one in three people

aged 65 and older will have a fall.

For those aged 80 and over, the risk

increases to one in two people. But a

new movement has been launched to

help people over 65 stay healthy, active

and independent. ‘Live Stronger for

Longer’ is an initiative by government

agencies and health providers across

New Zealand aimed specifically at

people over 65. The aim is to provide

people practical advice – whether

they’re still working, recently retired,

or happily enjoying retirement. Falls

prevention is key and regular exercise

is one of the best things you can do

to help reduce the risk of falls. And

you don’t have to do it alone. The

‘Live Stronger for Longer’ website has

links to local groups who run strength

and balance classes. All the classes

are designed to support Seniors to

build their leg and core strength and

improve their balance. There’s something

for everyone, from Pilates, tai chi, chair

yoga and light circuit classes. Find out if

there’s a class in your area and look for the

approved quality tick logo. This ensures

that the class has been approved as safe

and effective for older people. For more

information, go to www.livestronger.org.

nz. Plan ahead Falls can happen at any

time.

The Minister for Seniors Tracey Martin

mentions the growing problem of social

isolation for older people. It comes after

new research shows that one in five frail

elderly New Zealanders identify as lonely.

Loneliness has become a bit of a public

issue recently, although people generally

think of it as a problem for senior New

Zealanders, actually it isn’t. Loneliness

actually decreases as people get older

(11.3% of people aged 48-59 felt lonely,

compared to 6.6% aged 79-90). But

loneliness (a lack of quality and closeness

in relationships) and isolation (where

people simply don’t have relationships) are

still major issues for older people and the

SuperGold Card has some solutions which

can be read online at their website.

Opening of the new

To celebrate the

anniversary of the

inaugural opening of the

Diabetes Christchurch

Society (the first ever

diabetes society in New

Zealand) and finally the

relocation of our diabetes

society premises to 21

Carlyle Street, Sydenham David Meates

we are having our Grand

Opening on Friday, May 17th, 2019

starting at 3.00pm. The CEO of the

CDHB, David Meates will be our special

guest who will open the new premises.

In Canterbury we have over 21,000

people with known diabetes and another

20,000 people have pre-diabetes,

and many of these don’t know it.

Approximately 11% have type 1 diabetes

and around 86% have type 2 diabetes.

There is correspondingly a significant

rise in gestational diabetes. People with

diabetes account for 4.1% of the enrolled

population. Maori, Pacific and Indian

populations are more than 50% more

likely to have diabetes than the enrolled

population.

Diabetes Christchurch Inc is a support

organisation for people in Canterbury

who have diabetes, their family and

friends. We offer support, information,

advocacy and non-clinical education

on all aspects of diabetes. Our shop

has a wide range of products including

Our programmes span from awareness

to prevention, to engagement and

support. The society is about supporting

people with diabetes and is about making

meaningful connections with those people

affected by or at risk of diabetes. We want

every person affected by, or at risk of

diabetes in Canterbury to have access to

the support needed to live a full and active

life.

Diabetes is the result of the body not

creating enough insulin to keep blood

glucose (sugar) levels in the normal range

(between 4 and 8). Everyone needs some

glucose in their blood, but if it’s too high it

can damage your body over time.

The four most common

types of diabetes are

type 1, type 2, gestational

and pre-diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes is an ‘auto-immune’

condition where the body attacks the insulin

producing cells in the pancreas. Insulin must

therefore be delivered several times daily

by injection or insulin pump. There is no

known cause and no cure to date.

On 31st May,

1956, 43 people

attended a meeting

convened by Mr C.

Maitland Sheppard

and Emeritus

Professor Sir Don

Beaven to form

the Christchurch

Diabetes Society ~

the first lay group

for diabetes to be

established in

New Zealand.

premises of Diabetes Christchurch Inc

Type 2 Diabetes your body makes

insulin but sometimes doesn’t make enough

or it isn’t used efficiently. This is also called

insulin resistance. As the condition

progresses, a lack of insulin may also

develop. The most common cause is

excessive body weight and not enough

exercise. For many people (but not all)

type 2 diabetes may be prevented by making

healthy food choices and staying active.

Gestational Diabetes happens during

pregnancy, while it usually disappears following

the pregnancy, it may lead to Type 2 diabetes later

in life.

Symptoms of Diabetes may include:

• Excessive thirst

• Passing more urine

• Weight loss

• Very tired

• Mood changes

Don’t forget to please

phone 925-9972 to let us

know if you will be attending

the opening ceremony

Diagnosis and Treatment: Diabetes is diagnosed by

blood tests which can be organised through your doctor.

If you are very unwell you should seek medical assistance

immediately. If you have type 1 diabetes, you will need to

manage your blood glucose levels with insulin. Healthy

eating and physical activity will also help you stay well.

With type 2 you may start with some modifications to

your diet and increase exercise levels, treatment may also

include some oral medications, and some people may

also be placed on insulin as well.

In response to the growing concerns about the

escalating health threat and increasing costs posed by

diabetes the Diabetes Christchurch society wants to

reflect the realities of people living with diabetes. So

through more diabetes education, support and referring

people to the right network and connections we can

all help minimise how people with diabetes can better

manage this chronic condition and slow down the

progression of complications.

Diabetes education programmes: Family support

in diabetes care has been shown to have a substantial

effect in improving health outcomes for people with

diabetes. It is therefore important that ongoing diabetes

self-management education and support be accessible to

all people with diabetes and their families to reduce the

physical, mental and emotional impact of the disease that

can result in a negative quality of life and lead to a range

of chronic complications.

Our offices and shop are now located on the Ground

Floor of 21 Carlyle Street in Sydenham and our new

Full speed ahead for

Finau after break

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER New Zealand

under-20 midfielder Inga

Finau doesn’t appear to

have been slowed down

after making the decision

to take a year off rugby to

concentrate on his back-up

plan.

Finau, 24, played 14

games for Canterbury in

the Mitre 10 Cup between

2016 and 2017.

However, following Canterbury’s

win over Tasman

in the 2017 Mitre 10 Cup

final he took more than 12

months out of the game due

to being over-encumbered

with the juggling of fulltime

rugby along with trying

to study full-time.

Last year Finau didn’t

pick up a rugby ball in a

competitive match and

instead concentrated on

completing a bachelor of

sport coaching at Canterbury

University. With just

four papers remaining to

gain his degree, he’s now

back playing premier club

rugby for Linwood and

enjoying the game more

than ever due to a healthier

lifestyle balance.

“For me that was a priority.

It can be quite hard to

balance study and playing

code at the same time,” said

Finau.

The priority for me

coming back was strictly

club rugby. The balance

with rugby for Linwood

and university has been

perfect . . . I’m seeing the

end of the tunnel with the

university stuff,” he said.

The healthier lifestyle

balance has helped him to

star for Linwood through

the opening six rounds

of the Hawkins Cup. He

has played a crucial role

in Linwood’s rise from the

bottom six in last year’s

competition to currently

laying as the competition’s

joint leaders.

local sport

Proudly brought to you by...

SPELL: Inga Finau took more than 12 months off

rugby after Canterbury’s win over Tasman in the

2017 Mitre 10 Cup final.

Giving up the game he

has been picked for big

things in, since bursting

onto the scene with the

New Zealand under-20

side, wasn’t an easy one

for Finau. However,

reassurance from senior

Canterbury players helped

him realise it didn’t mean

his dreams of playing Super

Rugby were over.

“Tim Bateman was a real

key adviser for me . . . when

I suggested to him I was

going to take some time off

he said: ‘Man you’ve plenty

of time to come back and

play, you’re still young’,’’ said

Finau.

In 2017 Finau was part

of the Crusaders preseason

training squad

and was then bought into

the squad as an injury

replacement before being

fully contracted for the

Tower JuncTion

Phone: 348 6020 Open 7 days 11am to late www.speightstowerjunction.co.nz

remainder of the season.

He then carried onto

Canterbury’s Mitre 10 Cup

campaign, all the while also

doing studies.

“It was good for me in

terms of rugby, but in terms

of lifestyle the balance was a

little bit off,” he said.

“When I decided to come

back and play footy it was

to pursue it full-time and

take steps from club rugby

to provincial and Super

Rugby . . . if everything goes

well then opportunities will

come naturally.”

Having put a priority

on making sure he has a

back-up plan after pursuing

a professional rugby career,

Finau is hopeful the ability

to dedicate himself fully to

the pursuit of a successful

professional career will help

to make it a reality.

Senior player to apprentice

• By Gordon Findlater

A BUILDING apprenticeship

is the latest venture for former

Crusaders hooker Corey Flynn

who went from sinking boats

at Maadi Cup to helping others

sink pints during his playing

days.

Flynn, 38, played 151 games

for the Crusaders between 2002

and 2014, scoring 20 tries along

the way and winning Super

Rugby titles in 2002, 2005, 2006

and 2008. He is currently doing a

building apprenticeship with GE

Construction and plans to move

into project management.

“I’m about a year in . . . I’ve just

graduated off the broom and I’m

nearly allowed to use a nail gun,”

said Flynn.

He is also in the hospitality

industry – being part of a group

which owns four bars and a cafe

in Hanmer Springs. Flynn once

owned the The Fitz Sports Bar

on Fitzgerald Ave with fellow

Crusaders Kevin O’Neil and

Campbell Johnstone.

“Geez, we had some fun.

We were one of the only bars

that stayed standing after the

earthquake over that side of the

city, so for the next three to five

years we did really well,” said

Flynn.

Growing up in Southland,

he was a flanker in his early

days. However, he converted to

hooker after being told he wasn’t

going to make the Southland

Boys’ High School first XV as a

flanker due to his good friend

Jeff Wright being selected ahead

of him.

He also rowed for his school

and competed at Maadi Cup in

the quadruple and double sculls.

“We won an under-17 title in

the double scull and we nearly

won the under 17 quad, but we

actually ended up sinking,” said

Flynn. “We took on water down

the whole course and finished

second to Burnside High School

before we sunk.”

He played for Southland in

the NPC and in 2001, Flynn’s

path to the Crusaders was paved

after he received a phone call

from Robbie Deans – although

at the time he thought it was a

practical joke. “He introduced

himself as Robbie Deans and I

called bulls**t . . . I thought it

was one of my mates pulling my

leg because everyone knew that

Super Rugby teams were being

named. I was only 20-years-old,

so I didn’t think I would have

been anywhere near that level,”

he said.

“But, yeah, it was Robbie

Deans so after an awkward chat,

he asked me If I wanted to come

and play for the Crusaders and I

said I’d love to.”

One of Flynn’s most

memorable moments for the

Crusaders came in his 100th

game. It was a 29-10 semi-final

win against the Stormers in Cape

Town in 2011 – the same year as

the earthquake which caused the

team to play the whole season on

the road because of the damage

to Lancaster Park.

The day before the game,

Adam Whitelock, who wasn’t

travelling with us, he sent a video

through to the team. It was all

the first responders and some

people who had been injured in

the earthquake wishing us all the

best,” said Flynn.

“That was pretty moving. It

just sticks everything in your

mind . . . we went out that day

and we just couldn’t be beaten.”

The other stuff that really

sticks out is the mates you make.

I was lucky enough in 2007 to

see Kieran Read burst onto the

scene, and then he’s just played

his 150th game last week. As you

get older, you take pleasure in

seeing these guys come through

and absolutely light it up.”

Flynn is also remembered for

sporting many different looks

•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

STALWART: Corey

Flynn, who is

undertaking a building

apprenticeship with

GE Construction, is one

of just three Crusaders

to have played

150 games for the

franchise. PHOTOS:

MARTIN HUNTER

during his time in red and black.

In his early days with the

team, Flynn had a shaved head

before growing out his hair

and at one point he even had a

full grown beard. However, his

most memorable look came in

2007 when he grew a rat’s tail

accompanied with sideburns. He

says the look was inspired by a

dare.

“People didn’t think that I’d do

it, so I just did it,” he said.

Following the 2014 final loss to

the Waratahs, Flynn spent two

seasons with Toulouse in France

and one season with Glasgow

Warriors in Scotland.

He then returned to New

Zealand and finished his career

with West Coast in 2017, playing

under coach Sean Cuttance who,

along with the union’s chairman,

convinced him to end his career

in Greymouth. “I said ‘look

mate, if you’ve got whitebait and

lamb then I’m sure we’ll be able

to sort something out’,” he said.

Flynn’s planned retirement

didn’t last long, though. Last

year he laced up the boots for

Lyttelton a handful of times in

the metro premier reserve grade

after workmates asked if he

could fill in.

“After a couple of beers after

work one day they caught me at a

weak moment and said that they

were short and asked me if I’d

help out,” said Flynn.

“I actually got hit up by one

of the boys on Saturday night,

apparently they’re really short in

the front row again so we’ll see

what happens.”

Flynn has also become part

of the Radio Sport commentary

team for Crusaders and

Canterbury games. He has been

sitting alongside Brian Ashby

since last year.

“Working with Gash [Ashby]

is pretty easy because he takes

control . . . when he asked, I said

to him I don’t really know if this

is me, but he said just imagine

we’re at the pub having a beer

and you’re just talking rugby,”

Flynn said.

spotlight during trials with

prominent professional clubs in

Denmark, the Netherlands and

Germany.

The 14-year-old is currently

trialling with Dutch Cup finalist

Willem II after spending last

week at Danish side FC Mydtjyland

and will head to German

side Borussia Mönchengladbach

at the end of this week.

In his evaluation report, FC

Mydtjyland under-15 coach

Martin Mark said that Oscar

had left a positive impression

and that they are interested in

seeing him again.

“FC Mydtjyland wants to

follow Oscar and invite him to

a longer stay in our academy,”

wrote Mark in his reports which

pointed out the young New

Zealander’s strong physical and

technical abilities, but he need to

use those skills and his decisionmaking

at higher tempo.

The Christchurch United

player will not be surprised by

that feedback, as he said that the

intensity of the training sessions

was the biggest eye-opener.

“That was very different to

New Zealand. Every training

is basically like a first-team

training for me at Christchurch

United,” said Oscar.

The youngster has been at

Christchurch United and the

Christchurch Football Academy

since its inception in 2014 and

is developing into one of the

brightest talents at the club.

FC Mydtjyland is one of the

top clubs in Denmark and

regularly features in the Europa

League. Its academy is famous

for producing a host of Danish

internationals, as well as All

Whites captain Winston Reid,

who grew up at the club.

In spite of the higher training

intensity at Mydtjyland, Oscar

was pleased to report that he

could match the physicality and

technical skills of the professional

Danish academy players,

but noticed that his fitness levels

are not up to scratch.

These boys are really fit

because they do these intense

PROMISING: Oscar

Christchurch United and

complex which they share

with feeder club Herning. ​

trainings every day, but for me

it is something that I need to

work on in my own time,” he

said.

Oscar noted that scanning

the movements of other players

around him became more

important as the speed and

intensity of the play increased

but added that developing

good scanning skills may not

get enough attention back

home.

In his evaluation report, the

FC Mydtjyland coach recognised

that young players in New

Zealand are challenged for

not being able to play regular

matches at an international

level, like his peers in Europe,

but suggested some drills to

increase his handling speed and

to analyse his own games.

WHAT A week of comebacks

and sporting ecstasy . . .

Liverpool’s heroics against

Barcelona at Anfield yesterday

was the latest unlikely

resurgence.

The kind of expectation and

belief anything is achievable that

comes with Liverpool playing

at Anfield on Europe’s biggest

stage is akin to the same belief

the Crusaders have created for

themselves when the cards look

like they’ve turned against.

The Crusaders own an asset

very few teams in world sport

hold – the expectance to avoid

defeat when it’s sitting on their

doorstep . . . were we ever in

doubt they would find a way over

the line with time expired and

the Sharks holding a 21-14 lead?

It almost felt like a formality

when Mitchell Hunt coolly slotted

an anything but regulation

conversion straight down the

middle.

It will be hard to see Hunt

depart for the Highlanders at the

end of the season if the predictions

are true because once again

on Friday night he proved why he

is our Mr Clutch.

A comeback that certainly

wasn’t predicted came less than

24 hours later in Sumner.

Going into the sixth round

premier metro rugby match

between Sumner and four-time

defending champions Lincoln

University nobody expected the

home side to come away with

anything, let alone have the ability

to overcome a 12-point deficit

in the final 20min.

Why do we love sport?

Comebacks and

unpredictable results

JUBILANT: Sumner

celebrated hard after their

improbable 21-19 win over

Lincoln University.

win against what was the competition’s

leading team at that point

was how poorly Sumner had

performed in the build-up

. . . the side were winless in their

first five games this season and in

recent performances has missed

more tackles in the final 20min

than they’d expect during a

whole match.

However, when expectations

are lowered or don’t exist at all

funny things can happen and

two pieces of brilliance from

English centre Alistair Crossdale

with time ticking down sent St

Leonards Park into bedlam.

St Andrew’s College also

deserve mention. The side who

seemed to have a knack for blowing

it late in 2018 got their UC

Championship off to the perfect

start on Saturday when winger

Isilei Saumaki bounced off two

Nelson College tacklers before

reaching out to place a last minute

try which was converted for a

33-31 victory.

These games are the reasons we

love sport and for those who loyally

support a team through the

tough times, it’s the moments like

these that make it worth the wait.

Barking exhaust

defines cabriolet

I’M accelerating hard up

a quiet piece of country

road – first gear, second,

third and fourth, using the

paddle shifters to extract

maximum speed through

the gears.

I have the convertible

roof down, and my son’s

long hair is blowing freely

in the breeze, we are both

enjoying the sound of a

wailing V6 engine up front

and loud exhaust bark out

the rear as the gears shift.

The next thing I hear is

a siren-like sound and I

see flashing lights in my

rear view mirror. No, I

haven’t been caught by the

law for speeding, instead

I’ve activated an alarm

on a stationary car we

just passed, quite clearly

its motion sensors were

disturbed by the backfire

from the evaluation

car’s exhaust as the gears

changed.

The car I was driving

was Mercedes-Benz’s C43

AMG cabriolet, a car which

has definite sound and

robust performance. As

mentioned it has a 3-litre

V6 engine which has

healthy acceleration thanks

to the boost from twin

turbochargers.

Maximum power is

rated at a feisty 287kW

with a fabulous 520Nm

of torque, such are the

outputs there is a constantly

vibrant feel from beneath

the accelerator, it is strong

and wilful and, of course,

there are many drive modes

available at the push of a

button. You can dial in the

type of drive you would like

to experience – feisty or

frugal.

Each set-up is conclusive,

there is a definite structure

from within each mode,

and they can also be tailormade

to suit any driving

preference. I particularly like

the first sport setting, the

engine is not overly frenetic,

but it is a compromise

between the more gentle

comfort mode and the fullon

Sport plus setting.

With all of these options

there’s little denying

that the C43 has strong

performance potential.

Mercedes-Benz claims a

standstill to 100km/h time

of 4.8sec, and when the

engine is working hard it is

enjoying its work, while it

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

is raucous it’s not a strained

sound, I simply love it,

especially the bark on up

and downshifts.

During my time in

the evaluation car I was

constantly blipping the

throttle just to hear the

engine, that being the case

it wouldn’t be fair to publish

my fuel usage figures.

However, Mercedes-Benz

claims a 10-litre per 100km

(28mpg) combined cycle

rating that I would suggest

is easily possible given

the fuel usage meter was

listing a 7l/100km (40mpg)

instantaneous figure sitting at

a steady 100km/h, the engine

turning over at just 1500rpm.

The C43 cabriolet is

very much a driver’s car, it

is biased towards sporty,

and it makes no excuse for

that. Alongside the engine

management protocols, the

driver can also manipulate

suspension alterations

from within the cabin, the

spring and damper rates

can be firmed considerably

to enhance cornering

performance.

Twisty, open roads

are not easy to come

by in Canterbury, but

I discovered some new

corners just west of Darfield

that I hadn’t previously

used. The C43 has a low

centre of gravity, and in

sport suspension mode it

simply powers through the

corners flat and controlled.

There is strong steering

feel thanks to beautiful

sport specification, 19in

Dunlop tyres, turn-in is

direct and accuracy never

threatened.

Of course, the C43 with

4Matic drives through

a nine-speed automatic

gearbox to all wheels,

and that promotes a safe,

decisive handling balance.

While there are two

rear seats, effectively the

C-Class cabriolet is just a

2+2, unless you are childsize

you aren’t going to be

comfortable in the rear.

While in that regard it is a

selfish car, those upfront

have wonderful comfort and

can benefit from the high

degree of specification and

the amazing way Mercedes-

Benz creates the ergonomics

that feel just so right.

I guess at $141,400 the

company would need to get

that right. In my opinion,

that is certainly the case.

It’s fair to say I’m not a big

convertible fan, but the

C43 won me over with

its build quality, level of

specification, along with its

substantial performance.

There’s no secret

that Mercedes-Benz

is re-engineering the

configuration of its sixcylinder

line-up, and as

time goes by I’m sure that

all of its six-potters will

eventually be an inline

configuration, my only

hope is that new straight

engines are as involving as

the C43 is today, and have

that amazing sound.

OYDS REAL ESTATE

LREA 2008. The agent with 50+ years experience

whose commission is half most firms.

Should you sell your

house in winter?

Selling a property in winter may

seem to go against received wisdom,

but there are plenty of reasons why it

can be a good idea. It’s hard to ignore

powerful or compelling reasons like a

change in your work, financial or family

circumstances, or because the timing

seems right. In addition, there are

several other, more tangible upsides to

selling in winter.

Firstly, there are often fewer houses on

the market so there’s less competition.

Your property is less likely to be lost in

a swarm of listings and it will be easy

to make it stand out. People who are

looking to buy at this time of year are

usually highly motivated because they

need a home sooner rather than later.

The upside of this is that you may get

fewer ‘tyre-kickers’ than in the warmer

months – and increased demand will

often result in higher prices.

If you’re selling your property with a

real estate agent, you need to mine their

experience. When you’re choosing an

agent, ask them how houses in your area

sell over the colder months. It’s in their

interests to make sure the sale of your

property is as advantageous as possible;

if they think you’ll be better off waiting

a couple of months, they should tell you.

They should also work with you to work

out the best times to hold open homes

or viewings, taking in account shorter

sunlight hours.

You want your property to look

attractive, inviting and easy to look

after – and there are plenty of practical

steps you can take to make it seem

NEW LISTINGS

an attractive proposition on a cold

winter’s day. Now’s the time to fix any

leaks, cracked windows or sticking

doors or broken drains. All the usual

rules for preparing a home for sale

will apply - your buzzwords should

be decluttering and deep-cleaning. If

it has good insulation and an efficient

heating system, make sure these factors

are included in any marketing. Ensure

the house is warm and dry during any

viewings.

Don’t forget that people will want

to look around the outdoor areas too

- sweep or waterblast paths, mulch

garden beds and clear gutters. If your

and spring, consider making some

photos available so prospective buyers

can see what they’ve got to look forward

to. A few colourful plants in pots will

also help brighten outdoor spaces and

a new letterbox or freshly painted front

fence or gate will do wonders for your

property’s street appeal.

Prepare well and there’s no reason

why you can’t successfully sell your

property before the weather warms up.

Sell now and you’ll hopefully have lots

of properties to choose from when you

start scanning the market in spring.

(Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011

Despite anything to the contrary in the Christchurch City Plan, the activities listed below

are permitted activities in the specified locations if they comply with the prescribed

standards:

ACTIVITY: Temporary use of the application site for storage and sorting of

rock for the reconstruction of the rock revetment to support the

LOCATION: 230 Pages Road - The specific location of this activity is south

east of the Breezes Road/Bexley Road/Bridge Road/Dyers Road

roundabout

APPLICANT: Kirsty Mahoney of behalf of Christchurch City Council

REFERENCE NO: RMA/2019/780

STANDARDS:

1. The activity must proceed in general accordance with the information submitted

to the Council on 11 April 2019.

2. The use of the site for rock sorting and storage shall cease by 30 June 2019.

3. Adequate dust control measures must be in place at all times so as to minimise

any nuisance to neighbouring areas. Appropriate equipment (e.g. water hose,

sprinkler system) shall be available on site at all times and used whenever

required by adverse conditions (windy weather, etc.) as well as to reduce dust

emission from traffic within the site.

4. The activity must not create any significant adverse effects (relating, but

not limited to, noise, dust, mud, light spill, odour, traffic generation, refuse

disposal, animal control and visual amenity) that will, in the opinion of a

Council Compliance Officer or Environmental Health Officer, cause nuisance for

occupiers of surrounding sites. Note: If any significant adverse effects do arise,

then the Council can impose additional requirements or conditions to avoid,

remedy or mitigate those adverse effects.

The general Standards for Permitted Temporary Accommodation and Temporary Depots

and Storage Facilities can be viewed on the Temporary Accommodation page of the

Council’s website at www.ccc.govt.nz/tempaccomm

Any temporary activity established under these provisions shall not create or give rise

to any existing use right in respect of any land, activity, or structure (refer clause 5(3) of

the Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011).

If you have any questions or would like more information about the activities listed
