Spring gale causes havoc

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Mother nature delivered the first

fierce nor’west storm of the

season last week, leaving atrail

of destruction in northern parts

of the Hurunui district.

It fannedtwo fires,toppled a

camper van near Hanmer

Springs, felled trees, wrecked

sheds, and blewpanes of glass

from aglasshouse.

Acalf shed at Medbury had

sheets of ironwrenched from its

roof,and part of it collapsed,

whileanearby henhouse was

scattered across ayard.

Everypane of glass in alarge

glasshousewas smashed and

treescrashedacrossmany rural

roads.

Logging truck driversfled

through paddocks to escape

falling trees in Balmoral Forest.

Egg producerHurunui Hens,

ownedbyMatthewand Belinda

RutherfordonLeslieHills Road,

northeast of Culverden, got

‘‘prettysmashed’’, according to

Belinda.

They lost an irrigation pivot,

numeroussheds were damaged,

the eggshed was destroyed, and

more than100 treesfell victim to

the gale.

‘‘Then we woke up to snow,

with no power or water, the next

day,’’ she says.

Eggs were smashed when the

shed was torn apart. It was left

without aroof or walls.

‘‘Remarkably, the hens were

safe and happy insidetheir

house,’’Belinda says.

Crewsfrom across the Hurunui

district attended the two fires

that broke out at the height of the

winds. Bothwere difficult to

access.

The first flared up near Marble

Point, between Culverden and

Hanmer Springs, closing the

highwayfor atime because of

thick smoke and dangerous

conditions.

It lateropenedtoone­way

trafficand the fire was eventually

brought under control thanks to a

windchange,rain and the efforts

of volunteer firecrews.

The second firewas in a

private forestry blockonHappy

Valley Road, Motunau, where

access was particularlydifficult.

Fortunately,ittoo died down

as the wind changed to the

southwest and delivered

welcome rain, as well as snow to

parts of the district.

Police trying to help peoplein

the overturnedcamper van about

3pm near Hanmer Springs found

the conditions tough.They

struggled to stay on their feet.

Fortunately,no­one was

injured whenthe camperflipped

on its side, landing on the grass

verge.

Power cutsarising from trees

falling across lines, and sheets of

ironflying into them, brought

pumping to ahalt at manyofthe

Hurunui DistrictCouncil water

supplies, and farmsand homes

werewithout power for several

hours.

MainPowercould do littleto

repair the damageuntil the wind

dieddown,and was still busy on

Friday repairing the networkin

the Culverden,Hawarden,

Medbury, Waiau, Leslie Hills,

Emu Plains and Hanmerareas.

Meanwhile, Topp Contracting

and Sicon were kept busy

clearingtrees off ruralroads,

includingarow of trees off

ShimminsRoad, in the Medbury

area.

Pair mark 60 years of marriage

By SHELLEY TOPP

Lorraine and Graham

Robinson are celebrating

their 60th wedding

anniversary next month

with afamily outing on the

Kaiapoi River Queen.

The octogenarians, from

Summerhill, near Cust, first

met when they were both

working in Amberley, where

Graham was doing an

apprenticeship at McLean’s

Engineering shop.

Lorraine worked in a

drapery store in the town at

that time and often used to

go past the engineering

shop, but always on the

other side of the road to

avoid wolf whistles directed

at women passing closer.

However, Lorraine’s

detour to avoid the

engineering shop didn’t stop

Graham noticing her from

afar.

‘‘She is anice looking

girl,’’ he says. ‘‘She still is. I

couldn’t have done better.’’

When the pair eventually

got together they found they

had amutual interest in

hunting, but for different

reasons.

‘‘Graham enjoyed pig and

deer hunting but Ienjoyed

the tramping. Idon’t like

shooting animals, but Ilove

the outdoors,’’ Lorraine

says.

However, she does enjoy

miniature rifle shooting and

is agood shot. ‘‘She is better

than me,’’ Graham says.

Lorraine says she admires

Graham’s calm, placid

nature. ‘‘Graham is very laid

back, very accepting,’’ she

says.

The couple married on

October 1, 1960, at the tiny

Balcairn Church, which is

now aprivate residence.

They did aroad trip around

the North Island for their

honeymoon.

The year after Lorraine

and Graham married, his

father, Ernie, bought a

sheep and crop farm in Cust,

and in 1974 the couple

bought their own farm

nearby, a32­hectare

property at Summerhill,

where they still live.

Farming life and family

have provided many

highlights for the couple,

but they have also enjoyed

several overseas holidays

and were planning to do a

European River Cruise

earlier this year until the

Covid­19 pandemic

scuppered that.

They have five children,

eight grandchildren and two

great­grandchildren.

Shortcomings in elderly man'scare identified

The care of an elderly manata

Canterbury Rest Home has

been criticised in areport

releasedthis week.

The reportbythe deputy

health and disability

commissioner, Rose Wall, said

therewas alack of attention

and responsiveness to the

man’sdeteriorating condition

by multiple staff,and alack of

oversight by the clinical

manager.

The resident,inhis 80s, was

admitted to Ultimate Care

Karadean Court in Oxfordfor

hospital­level care. During his

six years at the facility his

health deteriorated.

He was eventually admitted

to public hospital, where he

died from blood poisoning and

askin infection.

The officeofthe Health and

Disability Commissioner

received acomplaint from the

man’s familyconcerning his

careatthe Oxford facility.

Ms Wall found there were

several failingsbystaffatthe

facility.Her report says

interventions were required to

manage the man’s continence,

hydration, medication,

diabetes,podiatry, pressure

areas, and pain.

‘‘Overall, there was alack of

attentionand responsiveness

to his condition by multiple

staff, and alack of oversight by

the clinical managers.’’

She was critical that

Ultimate Care Groupdid not

review the man’s continence

careaccurately,did not

arrange podiatry reviews,did

not monitor the man’s diabetes

or pain reliefadequately,and

did not obtain an air­relieving

mattress.

She was also critical of the

inaccuratedocumentation

recording the man’s wound

care, and monitoring of the

man’s pressure wounds, along

with the failure to seek

specialist adviceinatimely

manner. She also saidthere

were not enough registered

nursesavailable to provide

oversight to junior staff.

Ms Wall recommendedthe

group provide awritten

apologytothe man’sfamily,

and thatclinical managers

undertake trainingonclinical

documentation, care planning

and assessment, wound care

management, community, and

clinical leadership.

She also recommended it

shouldauditcompliance with

policies developed in response

to the complaint, review staff

levels, induction andtraining,

and equipment and supplies.

‘‘I consider that deficiencies

in the careprovided by

multiple staff represent

systemicissues at (the

facility),’’ she says.

SinceMsWall’s provisional

opinion,staff training has been

carried out, staffing levels

increased, and there hasbeen a

consistent approach to achieve

quality outcomes for all

residents.

The provider has been

referredtothe Director of

Proceedings, who could

considerputting proceedings

before the healthpractitioners

disciplinary tribunal,and

the human rights review

tribunal.

Samantha shines in butchery contest

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Impressive display ... Samantha Weller’s efforts caught the eye of judges.

ARangiora butcher has cut her

way to the top after apressureladen

two­hour competition.

Samantha Weller, from

PAK’nSAVE Rangiora, won the

Alto Young Butcher of the Year

title at the Upper South Island

regional 2020 competition.

She was up against butchers

from across the upper South

Island who sharpened their

knives and cut their way

through atwo­hour competition

in the regional stages of the

2020 Alto Young Butcher and

ANZCO Foods Butcher

Apprentice of the Year

competition.

Samantha is no stranger to

the competition.

It was the fifth time she

entered, and she says there are

many positives to competing.

She says it provides young

butchers with the chance to

learn new skills, meet new

people and profile their

careers.

“I believe my final display

gave me the edge this year —I

worked really hard to make it

pop,” Samantha says.

‘‘I am really looking forward

to the grand final now and have

abunch of new ideas for my

next display.’’

The contestants put their

boning, trimming, slicing and

dicing skills to the test as they

broke down asize 20 chicken, a

whole pork leg, and abeef short

loin into adisplay of valueadded

products.

Blair Wright, from Peter

Timbs Meats in Christchurch,

claimed first spot in the ANZCO

Foods Butcher Apprentice of

the Year category.

Samantha and Blair will

compete in the grand final on

November 10 at the ASB

Showgrounds in Auckland,

where they will further

showcase their skills, creativity

and knowledge of the trade

against the best in the country.

Head Judge Peter Martin,

who is the butchery manager of

Fresh Choice in Cromwell, is a

strong advocate of butchery

competitions.

“I believe the gains are huge

for every entrant who has had to

plan, practise and come up with

creative ideas in order to

compete against their peers

today.

“It not only boosts their

confidence, but helps to raise

the standard in the industry”.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Peter is particularly excited

about the new mentorship

programme introduced to the

competition this year, which

has helped guide and support

entrants, giving them the

confidence to put their best

knife forward on the day.

Alongside industry and peer

recognition, the winning Alto

Young Butcher and ANZCO

Foods Butcher Apprentice of

the Year receive atrophy and a

study tour.

Stability

concerns

Aproposed shared

pathway for walkers and

cyclists on Flaxton Road

has gone back to the

drawing board.

Waimakariri District

Council staff have been

designing ashared

pathway alongside the

drainonthe westernside

of Flaxton Road, between

LinesideRoad and

Kingsford Smith Drive.

But investigations into

the long­term stabilityof

the drain banks showed

the proposed pathway

created an increasedrisk

of the path collapsing or

slumpinginto the drain.

If the pathwas to remain

on the western side,a

largelength of the drain

bank would need

substantialearthworks,

adding significant costs.

Staffare now talking to

moving the path to the

eastern side of the road.

No surprises likely in

representation review

By DAVID HILL

No major changes are expected to come

out of the Waimakariri District Council’s

representation review.

Mayor Dan Gordon believes the

balance of three wards, established six

years ago, is ‘‘about right’’, despite the

growth of Rangiora

compared with the rest of

the district.

The council is required to

review its model of

representation every six

years, including the voting

system, the number of

councillors, the composition

of wards, whether

councillors are elected at

large, and whether to

continue having community

boards.

‘‘The process will need to

be informed by arange of

information, including

population changes,’’ Mr Gordon says.

‘‘I think the work done last time has set

us up pretty well, so I’m not picking we

will need to make any major changes.’’

Six years ago the council changed

from four wards to three in abid to

address the population growth in

Rangiora.

Two community boards were created

in the Kaiapoi­Woodend ward —

Kaiapoi­Tuahiwi and Woodend­Sefton

Dan Gordon

—inresponse to community feedback.

Subdivisions were created in the

Rangiora­Ashley and Oxford­Ohoka

boards to ensure representation across

the community.

‘‘It was amatter for that community (in

Woodend). They wanted to have their

own community board and that’s what

the process is about,’’ Mr

Gordon says.

‘‘All our community

boards work really well and

Iget along along to as many

community board meetings

as Ican.’’

Mr Gordon says the

community boards play an

important role in making

decisions for their

communities and in keeping

the council informed of

local issues.

‘‘I place alot of

importance in community

board decisions and it

would take alot for me to not endorse a

board’s recommendations.’’

Arepresentation review committee

comprising the mayor, one councillor

from each ward and arepresentative

from each community board, has been

appointed to consider the

representation needs for the 2022 and

2025 local body elections.

It is expected that the first­past­thepost

voting system will be retained.

Council reviewing hazards

Waimakariri residents are being invited

to learn about the latest natural hazard

information in the area.

The Waimakariri District Council has

been updating models and planning

maps, to show the possible extent of

natural hazards on land in the district,

as part of its District Plain review.

Development planning manager

Trevor Ellis says improving the accuracy

of hazard maps is an important piece of

work because of legislative changes

around climate change, reducing

natural hazard risk and ensuring

preparedness and response to natural

disasters.

“Updating these maps is an ongoing

process. The environment is dynamic

and constantly changing,’’ he says.

‘‘As acouncil we update our maps to

show the latest information so property

owners can make informed decisions

before undertaking building works,

buying property or preparing for a

natural disaster.”

The maps and models are available at

Waimakariri.govt.nz/letstalk.

The hazard information being updated

includes flooding from rainfall, coastal

inundation and stop­bank breaches, as

well as tsunami, liquefaction and fault

lines.

Hazard maps are used when

processing resource consents, rezoning

land, for project information

memoranda and for building consents to

ensure the risk from natural hazards to

people and buildings is assessed, Mr

Ellis says.

They are also referred to on land

information memorandum (LIMs) for

buyers and sellers of properties.

“We want to make sure people are

aware of the updated maps and know we

are available to answer any questions

regarding the update,’’ he says.

“The next step in this process is

through the District Plan Review,

looking at how we can respond to this

new information so any future

development is done in as safe away as

possible.”

Residents can view the models and

maps, ask questions, and offer feedback

online until October 19, or attend the

consultation evenings being held in the

Rangiora Town Hall on October 14, from

6pm to 9pm, or in the Ruataniwha

Kaiapoi Civic Centre on October 19, from

4pm to 7pm.

Election seminar to be staged

Social issues will be the focus of an

election seminar being held on

Wednesday.

Social Services Waimakariri (SSW)

will host an online webinar with localsector

groups informing election

candidates of the local issues, before

the candidates are invited to respond to

prepared questions.

‘‘We are going to hear from speakers

from the four main sectors, giving five

minutes each —families with children,

youth, older persons and the disability

sector,’’ SSW facilitator Nicki Carter

says.

Candidates from Labour, National,

the Greens and the New Conservatives

will then be invited to respond to

questions around social sector funding,

operating in the post­Covid

environment, and service provision in

rural areas.

Recent surveys conducted by SSW

following the Covid­19 lockdown reveal

the challenges faced by social service

agencies in rural communities.

The issues highlighted include

funding and the lack of acommunitybased

social worker in the Hurunui

district, Nicki says.

announcement that the signalised

crossing, which was promised to our

Woodend community in March, is

going to be kicked out to next year.

‘‘The Woodend community is

running out of patience after going

through endless consultations and

meetings.’’

Mr Doocey says moving the goalposts

yet again leaves residents with

no reason to trust that the lights will

be delivered next year. ‘‘Any delay

will put children’s lives at risk.’’

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon is

demanding atimetable from the

agency for safety improvements.

He had aZoom meeting last week

with the agency officials and planned

to meet regularly with them until the

promised improvements were

completed. ‘‘I want to see that crossing

implemented and an engagement with

the community about projects NZTA

consulted on last year.’’

These include safety measures at

the Pegasus/Ravenswood

intersection, lights at the Woodend/

Main North Rd intersection, aroundabout

at the Rangiora­Woodend Road

corner, and safety improvements at

Pine Acres.

‘‘These are important projects for

our community and for the council,’’

Mr Gordon says. ‘‘These are NZTA

projects, but Ifeel it’s important that

we work with them to ensure they are

implemented.’’

Woodend School principal

Adrienne Simpson says the school is

looking forward to avisit from agency

officials this week to provide a

briefing on the signalised crossing.

The school is also working with the

agency and Mr Gordon to progress the

other safety projects.

‘‘The school roll keeps growing and

we are starting to get the flow­on from

people moving into the Two Roads,

Ravenswood and Copper Beach

Estate subdivisions.’’

The roll is expected to reach 370 by

the end of the year, with the school

able to take about 400 pupils. Future

building work will cater for up to 600.

TheBNZ remains the onlytrading

bank to retain Monday­to­Friday

trading withnormal trading hours.

This raises thequestion: Are Kaiapoi

customers less valuedatboth Westpac

and ANZ thanthose of Rangioraor

Christchurch?

Thereisaword for that: Contempt.

Yours,

John Moody

Watch out for

shearwaters

By DAVID HILL

Kaikouraresidents are beingasked to

keep an eye out for their feathered

friends.

The Hutton’s shearwater/titilives on

the Kaikoura mountains and peninsula,

with the adult seabirds returning home

each spring for nesting, then flyingeach

autumn for their winterfeedinggrounds.

Adults andyoungbirds(fledglings) can

‘‘crash land’’ in and aroundKaikoura

because of artificial lighting at night.

Road users shouldapproach any dark

shapes on the road withcare.

Birdscan also gather in big groups

(known as rafts) when feeding, so boaties

should also takecare.

Anyone who findsalost Hutton’s

shearwater should placethe birdina

non­airtightcontainer or cardboard box.

It will not need foodorwater and should

not be handled more than necessary.

Between Septemberand February,

keep the bird in aquiet, dry and cool

placeovernight and take it to Encounter

Kaikouraat96Esplanade between

7.30am and 6pm.

From March, takethe birdstraightto

the ‘‘Hutton’s Hub’’, open 24/7 at 115

Ludstone Rd, for banding and checks.

Agrounded shearwater may appear

clumsy on land, unable to take­off or

walk,but this is normal.Ifthe bird has

any signs of injury, eyes shutting or an

inability to maintain balancewhen

sitting, it will need to be pickedup.

Fun day awelcome interlude

By DAVID HILL

Woodend School pupils enjoyed anoisy,

fun­filled day last Friday in what has

been achallenging year.

After the cancellation and

postponement of many events because

of Covid­19, principal Adrienne Stewart

said it was good for the pupils to have

some fun ahead of the end of term three,

which finishes tomorrow.

‘‘The kids are just having agreat time

and we couldn’t have got abetter day.

‘‘Hopefully, we will have alevel 1term

next term and we can have all the

normal activities without any

disruption,’’ she says.

The school held aWhare Manu Day,

full of fun activities and aspecial lunch.

The day was held instead of the Whare

Manu Big Day Out, which is normally

held in the second term.

‘‘None of the venues we normally use

could take them due to the size of the

group because of level 2restrictions, so

we decided to do something onsite,’’ Ms

Stewart says.

Level 2restrictions meant the event

was held without parents attending,

hundred cars expected to

arrive.

Cars, bikes, four­wheel

drives, campers —infact

anything on wheels —will

arrived from as far afield as

Motueka and Dunedin.

The community event is

now under the umbrella of

the Rock’n’Wheels Meet

Charitable Trust.

This year, the event will

benefit eight community

groups, all of which will be

helping on the day.

Trust spokeswoman

Katrina Platt says in spite of

having to push the event out

for several weeks, the day

will still offer plenty of good

old­fashioned family fun.

There will be swap­meet

sites, craft and food stalls,

live music, and

entertainment.

Cars turning up to

Rock’n’Wheels do not have to

have apedigree.

‘‘If it has wheels and you

love it, bring it along,’’

Katrina says.

Atotal of 104 vehicles

turned out to the first event.

It has since grown

substantially, with hundreds

of car owners taking the

opportunity to give their

vehicles arun to the

picturesque domain.

Entry is $10 per set of

wheels, including the driver

and one passenger. It will be

$5 for all extra people in the

vehicle, except for children.

Swap meet and craft sites

are $20 each.

Entry is $5 at the gate for

adults, with those under 15

free.

Public parking will be at

the Amberley School for a

donation.

The school is running the

car park as fundraiser.

In brief

Liquor decision pending

Adecision on an application by Thirsty

Liquor to open an outlet in Amberley is

pending,after athree­day hearing before

the District Licensing committee.Ninetythree

objections were received, with 16

opting to be heardbefore the chairwoman,

HurunuiMayor Marie Black, and

committee members Winton Dalley and

MichaelWard. Issues of alcohol abusein

the community, the liquor store’s proposed

prominent siting on Carters Road in the

centre of town, the prospectofAmberley

becoming alocal centre for cheapbooze

and fuel, and concerns about liquorboxes

and bottlesbeing dumped alongthe

highwaywere raised by objectors. The

gallery was full duringthe hearing. The

committee has reservedits decision.

Rangiora police search

Astash of cash and cannabisplants were

found during apolice search at aRangiora

address last Wednesday.Police executed a

search warrantafter receiving information

which suggestedillicit activity at the

property. In all, 250 cannabis plants were

discovered, along with more than $100,000

in cash. A40­year­oldman has been

charged with cultivating cannabisand

possession for supply. He is scheduled to

appear in court later this week.

Rangiora Lionesses

An article in the September 10 North

Canterbury News wrongly reportedthat the

Rangiora Lionesses presented grants of

between$2000 and $10,000 to 16 schools in

the Rangioraand Kaiapoiareas for pupils

from families who have suffered hardship

becauseofCovid­19. In fact, the amounts

were $200 to $1000.The error is regretted.

Arevolutionary clean­air log burner is

acquiring alarge fan base among Heat

Store customers.

Blaze King, the popular Canadianmade

ultra­low emission log burner

sells itselfthroughword of mouth,says

Heat Store managerDavidChalklen.

‘‘We get alot of referralsfrom

friends of customers who have bought

aBlaze King.

‘‘Theyhave seen how the Blaze King

keeps their friend’s homewarm and

cosy andthen choose to buy one

themselves.

‘‘The feedback we get from

customers is phenomenal.’’

Blaze Kingislike the old­style fires

that people love, but also meetsultrastrictclean­air

rules and will burn

through the night without needing to

be stoked, which can keep houses

warm 24 hours aday.

‘‘It providesanice,even heat

throughout the house,’’ David says.

‘‘A large part of the Blaze King’s

appealisbeing able to wake up to a

warm home in the morning without

worrying aboutthe fire going out

duringthe night.’’

One customer,David Smith,says

Blaze Kingperforms brilliantly.

‘‘As promised, it easily warms our

large home.

‘‘It stays on all night and Heat Store

made the whole installation process

simpleand easy.’’

The log burner uses catalyst cleanair

technology that not only burns

wood, but also thesmoke,generating

heat and therefore reducing wood

consumption.

Blaze Kinghas a40­year history of

makingwood fires and a30­year

award­winning history of making

catalytic wood fires, mainly to heat

homes in the freezing Canadian

winters.

Blaze King ... The revolutionary Canadianmade

log burners met ultra­low emission

standards. They are available in Canterbury

only from the Heat Store, in Christchurch.

Matt Flight

Labour Kaikoura candidate

Introducing Matt Flight

The Hurunui and Kaikoura districts

face particular challenges to come

through the economic impacts of

COVID-19.

Iwant to work as your Member of

Parliament tomake sure we can

overcome those challenges.

With Jacinda Ardern’s leadership,

the Labour-led Government has

already made investments that will

make adifference for us.

With alot of small communities

scattered across the districts,

Hurunui and Kaikoura stand to

benefit from more than threequarters

of abillion dollars to help

councils upgrade under-pressure

water services. We all saw what

happened in Havelock North where

some died and thousands got sick

after such investments were not

made.

Our Government has also invested

nearly $2.5m across Hurunui

Tourism, Whale Watch and Dolphin

Encounter to keep tourism going in

Hurunui and Kaikoura.

As your MPIwill advocate for such

investment when and where it’s

needed.

Iwas raised in asharemilking

family, soIknow about hard work.

Iqualified asanelectrician before

moving into amanagement role

maintaining Housing New Zealand

homes in the Kaikoura region.

I’m arugby referee, and I’ve been

aradio announcer. Istill MC at

weddings, school, and charity events.

My wife Dallas is medical scientist

and we have two sons Logan 12 and

Elijah 7. We’ve lived in our electorate

for 17 years.

If elected as your Member of

Parliament, Iwill work with Jacinda

Ardern and the Labour team in

Government to get the best support

for Kaikoura and Hurunui. Ihope I

can count on your support.

Thanks,

Matt

MEET THE CANDIDATES ­KAIKOURA

North Canterbury News, September 24, 2020

John McCaskey -

Social Credit Kaikoura Candidate

Iamstanding in my 9th election since

1972. The incumbents are wedded

to adoctrine that has produced

an increasingly divided/unequal

community.

This is fostered by indoctrination

and brain-washing, not life

experience, especially in matters of

the land &water -the “commons”.

My lifetime in North Canterbury has

two parts. The first, the post-war

pre-80s when tremendous social

and productive progress was in full

swing. The second is notable for

increasing social divisiveness and

no new productive infrastructure.

Governments appear fixated on

“patching up the holes” like adog

chasing its tail.

Over the past 4decades I’ve borne

witness to acountry indecay -once

near top of the world OECD rankings,

and proud of it. Now we’re well beaten

by the Scandinavians who are lightyears

ahead in agriculture, forestry,

aquaculture and transport.

Don’t believe me? Go -look, listen

and learn!

From my first working OE in

Australia in 1960, where Isaw water

harvesting, I’ve travelled widely. I’ve

walked through the slums of Nairobi

and Beijing and the “glitter” of St

Petersburg and New York.

My interests have always been the

people, the land, and how it is used,

from Siberia to Argentina, Kenya

to Helsinki and most others. More

recently, coming back to NZ from

Canada, I’ve asked myself “what’s

happening to my country?”

My priorities for North Canterbury,

Hurunui, and my electorate which

I’ve fought for over 4decades are:

1: Aconstant pure water supply for

domestic use, stock, and irrigation,

and aself sufficient cheap source of

electricity. These can be supplied by

gravity feed to Amberley and all

townships upstream by harnessing

our own Lake Sumner potential.

2: Re-establishing commuter-rail

from the already existing facilities at

Waipara to Christchurch. This would

enable all surrounding areas north to

commute, if not every day, Monday to

Friday for medical, education, sport

and even social events. This would

help retain rural communities and

avoid exorbitant student loans

(accommodation &car expenses).

3: Future proof the fragile coastal

access route from Christchurch to

Picton by re-introducing the once

very successful Lyttleton-Wellington

overnight ferry service for passenger

and ex-road freight, thus lowering

emissions and costs. When, not if, the

Waipara (or Hurunui) bridges become

storm/flood/quake victims the only

way north could be via Arthurs Pass

and by sea!

4: Withdraw all long term

infrastructure planning from the

Resource Management Act and reestablish

the very successful M.O.W.

and Catchment Board models, fully

funded by Treasury. Cleaning out

“crack” willows from streams and

rivers is also apriority.

We,inNorth Canterbury/Kaikoura

electorate have so much untapped

economic potential, therefore social

enhancement. It’s presently drowning

in aplethora of theory-based

negativity.

The key tounlock this is, and always

has been, WATER!

Only a“sea-change” to the political

landscape can release it!

My record up to the mid-80s

“reformation” proves it, but only YOU

can change it.

Kaikoura electorate candidate 2020

JOHN McCASKEY

Stuart Smith

National Kaikoura candidate

Icome from aCanterbury family that

comprises five generations of sheep &

deer farmers. Iammarried toJulie and

father to three children.

Julie and Imoved to Marlborough in

1994 and began growing grapes. In

1996 we established our own wine label

and Ibecame interested in the wider

Viticulture industry, resulting in an early

involvement with the Marlborough Grape

Growers Association.

Since then Ihave held several local and

national roles including being President of

the New Zealand Grape Growers Council

and Chair of New Zealand Winegrowers. I

was subsequently inducted as aFellow of

the New Zealand Winegrowers Board for

services to the industry.

In 2014 Ientered Parliament winning

the election with amajority of around

12,500 votes and successfully held my

seat in the 2017 election by asimilar

number. Icurrently sit on the Economic

Development, Science and Innovation

Select Committees.

Iamalso the National Party’s

spokesperson for Viticulture and

Immigration, as well as being Chairperson

for GLOBE-NZ, an association of national

parliamentarians working on sustainable

development policy whose mission is to

work across party political divisions to

develop legislative responses to the major

environmental challenges.

Iamcurrently the Member in charge of

my own members’ bill, ‘Insurance (Prompt

Settlement of Claims for Uninhabitable

Residential Property) Bill’, which recently

passed its First Reading and is currently

with the Governance and Administration

Select Committee. This bill will aim

to facilitate the swift resolution of

uninhabitable property claims lodged with

insurance companies. My first Members

bill ‘The Friendly Societies and Credit

Unions (Regulatory Improvements)

Amendment Act 2018’ came into force on

1April, 2019.

Position Statement

Resource Management Act Reform

The RMA is New Zealand’s biggest

barrier to future development. With New

Zealand facing an extraordinary jobs and

economic crisis, we simply cannot let the

RMA stand in the way of urgently needed

infrastructure development. National

will repeal and replace the Resource

Management Act, and reform New

Zealand’s planning rules if elected in 2020.

The RMA has failed in its duty to

protect the environment and allow our

infrastructure to grow. There is now

widespread support for reforming how

we manage our resources. The dream of

home ownership is drifting further away

Stuart Smith

Kaikōura

Isupport:

Responsible Economic Management

Delivering Infrastructure

Reskilling and Retraining our Workforce

AGreener, Smarter Future

BuildingStronger Communities

in this country asthe sight of hammers

on building sites is replaced with people

filling out forms and paying consultants.

National will replace it with two new

pieces of law: an Environment Standards

Act, setting our environmental bottom

lines; and an Urban Planning and

Development Act, giving clarity and

consistency. Wewill begin this work

in our first 100 days. The building and

construction sector once exemplified the

best ‘can-do’ spirit of New Zealand, but

this has been ground out of people by

planning rules and their application.

It’s near impossible to get aresource

consent within the statutory deadline of

20 working days. The cost of consenting

can quickly run into the tens of thousands

with council processing fees on top of

planning consultants charging hundreds

of dollars per hour. The RMA has become

afoil for anti-competitive behaviour.

National has worked with interest groups

that are looking at solutions to the RMA’s

failures. National has the political will to

take onRMA reform because we believe

our complicated planning rules are largely

to blame for the unaffordability of houses

and urban land.

Taxes

National’s policy is clear –wewon’t

introduce any new taxes in our first term.

We know that what businesses need now is

confidence to invest and create more jobs,

not higher taxes.

We know the Labour lead Government is

desperate for higher taxes to pay for some

of their spending. This is concerning for

all hard working Kiwis and businesses

who risk being whacked with higher taxes

in atime ofeconomic crisis if Labour are

elected for another three years.

Only afew months ago they increased

fuel taxes -aclear signal that they saw

no problem with stinging New Zealand

households and businesses with higher

taxes in the middle of an economic crisis.

Labour plans on spending as much as

it takes in an attempt to keep their poll

numbers high until the election, and on

October 19 the smiles will drop and New

Zealanders will be presented with the bill.

National has avery different approach.

We will ensure all new spending is highquality

and promotes economic growth

–and unlike Labour we won’t be afraid to

make hard decisions about eliminating

wasteful spending. Higher economic

growth, and amore disciplined approach

to spending, is the best way to keep debt

manageable –not the Labour-Green’s

approach of higher taxes.

When you enter the polling booth it

is two ticks Blue for RMA reform and

sound economic management.

MEET THE CANDIDATES ­KAIKOURA

22 North Canterbury News, September 24, 2020

Richard Evans

ACT Kaikoura Candidate

Richard Evans, aBlenheim

based business owner and

resident for the last 22 years,

is once again standing as the

ACT Party’s Kaikoura electorate

candidate. Richard has stood as

the ACT candidate since the 2011

election and continues to support

ACT’s values of “Freedom and

Responsibility”.

As along-standing resident

Marlborough/Kaikoura area, his

goal is to see the region recover

from the Covid-19 impacts quickly

with “Kiwi ingenuity” rather than

government intervention and

handouts –and has akeen interest

in supporting small businesses.

“Looking forward over the next

few years, our region’s farms and

businesses face an uphill battle

for survival and Ibelieve the ACT

Party’s policies around efficient

government spending and a

reduction in regulation burden

will go along way to supporting us

to survive” Mr. Evans said.

Originally from Malawi, the

chartered professional engineer

in (civil and structural) is an

employer of more than 25 staff in

the electorate and the business

provides support to people wishing

to develop their properties or

business.

Richard has akeen interest

in supporting small businesses,

including farming, he is strongly

backing the ACT Party’s 5-point

plan to recovery.

“We really need to get as

many people back in work as

soon as possible and Isee the

governments’ role as an enabler

to business so they really need to

be reducing red tape and rules

and supporting public health

initiatives that will reduce the

impact of the flip flop in and out

of COVID Restriction Levels ”he

said.

As part of the ACT suit of policies

to support farmers and business,

Mr. Evans will support bringing

back the 90-day trial period for

all businesses as well as placing

athree-year hold on minimum

wage increases. In addition, ACT

would support privatization of

the managed isolation facilities

to enable the seasonal labour

shortages for dairy, viticulture

and horticulture to be met.

“We don’t have alot of very

large employers that other

regions have and we are

running alot of smaller

businesses…it is important

for me to make things easier

for small businesses so we

can keep wheels turning,”

Mr Evans said.

He said the trial scheme will

make it easier for people to employ

and allow more opportunities for

untried mployees so they can pick

up jobs later on.

The scheme will also ensure that

people trying to transition from

sectors badly effected by COVID

downturn will get achance at a

trial.

“Being gainfully employed is a

huge positive for mental health

and the government must assist

where it can to ensure we are all

being effectively supported” he

said.

The ACT Party’s proposal to

create an independent Mental

Health and Addiction agency

will go along way to ensuring the

varied needs of individuals can

be provided for whilst monitoring

providers to ensure cost effective,

high quality care is occurring.

“A Party Vote for ACT will ensure

more independent thinking MPs

support David Seymour in areal

change from the Red vsBlue

politics” Mr. Evans concludes.

Only the ACT Party iscommitted

to:

• Afully costed plan to start

repaying debt now and not leaving

it to the next generation to worry

about.

• Having and honest debate

about dealing to the debt –visit

debtdestroyer.nz to have your say

• Areal strategy to jump start

the economy through cutting tax

and bureaucracy, having smarter

borders and supporting farmers

and small businesses with less

legislation.

Jamie Arbuckle

NZ First Kaikoura Candidate

Jamie is aMarlborough District

Councilor with over 10 years’

governance in local government.

Jamie has worked across all facets

of Council and as aqualified

Hearings Commissioner, has

experience with Environment

Planning and the RMA. Prior to

Council and still apassion for

Jamie today, ishis involvement

in Horticulture. He is well known

from his time at local markets and

for his family’s long involvement

in farming and fruit growing in

the region. Jamie completed

his Business and Management

Diploma at NMIT. His wife Sally, a

hairdresser, and their four children

aged 11 -20, have been actively

involved in local markets and

festivals. Youwill often find them

at local sporting events and day to

day schooling activities.

Being ahard worker, good

listener, communicator and an

active member of the community

-Jamie know the issues. There

are many major infrastructure

projects in the Kaikoura Electorate

that need Government support

including the Picton Ferry

Terminal upgrades, The Whale

Trail along the East coast of

Kaikoura, Irrigation Schemes and

future water storage proposals,

road and rail. The Provincial

Growth Fund will play acritical

role in our Region; Hanmer

Springs recently received $3.1m

towards domestic tourism to

improve the thermal pools and

Kaikoura received $10.88m for

the Wakatu Quay and South Bay

Developments which are important

for employment and growth.

Covid-19 has presented major

challenges for our local economy.

There are many affected

sectors such as hospitality,

tourism, accommodation, retail,

construction and the small to

medium sized businesses within

that. Primary sectors such as

viticulture, seafood, aquaculture,

farming and forestry will be critical

for our recovery. Afocus must be

on stopping business closure, job

losses and providing support to

our communities around mental

health. Parts of the Kaikoura

electorate are reliant on tourism

activities and it will be vital to

showcase our region as the gateway

to the South Island. There are

major opportunities with offshore

aquaculture -the resilience and

growth of primary industries

can be ensured with favourable

government policies and the right

investments into key strategic

assets.

What NZ First has achieved

NZ First has commonsense

policies that bring balance to any

government. With a regional focus,

NZ First has provided historic

investment into the regions.

We’ve increased frontline

police numbers by 2200 with the

commitment of another 1000 in the

next term.

We’ve secured an unprecedented

amount of funding for the defence

force to boost NZDF equipment

and capabilities.

Our seniors have seen arevamped

SuperGold Card and Winter Energy

Payments while our youth now

have free doctors’ visits for under

14’s and free trade training.

NZ First has rejuvenated our rail

network and invested arecord

amount in our health sector.

We’ve increased the minimum

wage and got rid of secondary tax.

We have stopped Capital Gains

Taxand have listened to farmers by

pulling back onextremes and bring

balance to the Zero Carbon Act.

Why Jamie’s running for NZ First

NZ First has anexperienced and

strong Caucus that has been a

constructive Coalition partner.

Acore principle ofNZFirst is

putting New Zealand and New

Zealanders first in our decision

making. There has never been a

time when we must ensure more

than ever, that we protect New

Zealand businesses and jobs.

The Kaikoura Electorate needs

central government support and

recognition for the key role that we

play in the New Zealand economy.

NZ First has backed the regions

with support for primary industries

such as farming, forestry,

aquaculture, viticulture and

horticulture, vital to our region,

because of their employment and

export earnings.

To ensure we get Jamie Arbuckle’s

effective representation in

Parliament for the Kaikoura

Electorate, Party Vote New Zealand

First.

Green Party co-leaders James Shaw and Marama Davidson talk to

Mike Houlahan about polling and the Green new deal.

Green Party co­leader James Shawhas

mixed feelings about polling.

He cametoparliament in 2014 after

consistently high polls,when the party

recorded its second­best election result.

But, in 2017, he gavethe Green’s

adjournment debatespeech, havingjust

been handedapoll saying the partywas

well under 5percent.

The numbers lookatouch better three

yearson, but co­leader MaramaDavidson

said she and the Green campaign team

were well awarethey were trying to defy

history —smaller parties haveconsistently

fared poorly after aterm as agovernment

support party.

‘‘We have polledconsistently around

and above that 5% threshold, which is

absolutelyencouraging, and Ithink it goes

to bothwhat we have managed to get done

in government,aswell as being very clear

about how we would like to go further.

‘‘We are notresting on any sort of

security,and what we havetodoisreally

focus on our policiesand get out there; that

it is the Green Party and only the Green

Party whowill prioritise astable climate,a

thriving environment, and making sure we

are taking careofeach other;that it is the

Green Party who are putting out abroad

visionfor the future of Aotearoa.’’

The co­leaders’ optimism perhaps

reflects the fact they wereinterviewed

beforedetails of Mr Shaw’s advocacyon

behalfofaGreen schoolinTaranaki

becamepublic. Mr Shaw’s backing ran

contrary to partypolicy, and alsoraised

questions about how stringentlyhehad

examined the proposal.

It remains to be seen whetherMrShaw’s

profuse apologies and statement that he

would not make the same decision again

are enough to stave off serious harm to the

Green’s electoral prospects.

Reviewingthe party’ssupport

agreementwith Labour, the Greens have

not achievedeverythingthe partysought,

but the pair felt initiativessuch as the Zero

CarbonAct and the ban on oil and gas

exploration marked asolid three years.

‘‘Therewas thisview that youshould

never let the Greens nearthe levers of

government, theywill destroythe country,

they’re crazy, they’lldestabilise the

Government,’’MrShaw said.

‘‘If you look at our actual track record,

we have been aresponsiblepartnerin

government, we havedelivered an

enormous amountand way more thanwe

actually anticipated whenwestarted,and

at the same time we know we need to go

further and faster thanwehave been able

to do in the pastcouple of years.’’

Water —specifically the destiny of Lake

Manapouri—was the issue which more

than any othercreatedagreenpolitical

LEADERS INTERVIEW

movement in New Zealand. Fortyyears on,

the GreenParty now has to wrestle with

the future of the Tiwai Point aluminium

smelter—the facility for which Manapouri

was dammed to generate power.

Mr Shaw said with his Climate Change

Minister’shat on, part of him wouldlike to

see the smelter remainsothat New

Zealand had to take responsibility for what

it consumed.

However, with the closureofthe plant

announcedbyownerRio Tinto, Mr Shaw

was excitedatthe prospectofmore

environmentally friendly alternatives

replacing it.

‘‘Thereare things that we can do to

diversify and support industry down there,

and actually utilisethe factthat we have

got thisincredibleresource in the area,if

we can retain alot of thoseengineers

involved and involve theminnew

industries down there.’’

There is alsothe possibly vexed issue of

building new hydro generation

infrastructure—something with fiscaland

environmentalramifications.

Likeall parties, the Greens havehad to

recalibrate their election strategies, with

Covid­19 stillapresentdanger.

While the pandemic is unwelcome,ithas

resulted in some gains for the Greens, with

policies such as green jobs being

acceleratedtomeet the potentialneed of

workers laidoff to retrain.

‘‘The $1.3 billionfor JobsFor Nature

schemewas an example of realising that

we can have agreenreset, thatwecan

have agreen reimagination of our

country,’’MsDavidson said.

While economicswere certaintobea

major election talkingpoint, Mr Shaw said

the Greenphilosophy of sustainability

meant it brought aunique perspectiveto

the economic recovery picture.

‘‘All that liquidity that we are pumping

into the New Zealand economy has to be

repaidbyafuturegenerationoftaxpayers,

who are alsogoing to be confronted,

whilstthey are paying that,with climate

change, ahousing crisis that hasn’t gone

away, poverty whichhasn’t gone away,the

cost of the threewatersinfrastructure

‘‘Whatweare sayingis, everything we

are talking about, whether it is the poverty

action plan,the cleanenergy plan, the

other stuff we have got coming up, is the

Green new deal.

‘‘We need to be putting everydollarwe

can of that stimulustowork solvingthe

long­term challenges so thatfuture

generationsdon’t havetopay twice:you

can actually do two things at once.’’

Putting ahuman face on politics

NewZealand First leaderWinstonPeters talkstoMike

Houlahan aboutpolitical longevityand hisparty’srole in

thecoalition government.

Having first been elected to

Parliamentbefore manyyounger

MPs wereevenborn,New

Zealand First leaderWinston

Peters hasseen most of the

surprises that politics can

provide.

But even he cannot believe the

alarms andincursions that have

unfoldedover the pastthree

years.

‘‘The level of outsideincursion

is unparalleled,’’MrPeters said.

‘‘I knowwehavebeen through

wartimeand lost far more

people, but we didhavesome

sort of fixonwhat we were up

against.

‘‘Inthiscase (Covid­19), we

don’t because itisasilentkiller

...and there is no reasontobe

careless.’’

QuiteapartfromCovid­19 —

enough to testany government —

Mr Petershas,asdeputy prime

minister, beenalongsidePrime

Minister Jacinda Ardern as she

also dealt with terror attacksand

naturaldisasters.

Athree­partygoverning

arrangement, which sceptics

claimedwould not last three

months, has proven remarkably

resilient in thepast three years,

with Mr Petersmostlyrefraining

from goading favourite target

Green co­leaderJames Shaw

untilthe end of the

parliamentary term.

Much of New Zealand First

LEADER INTERVIEW

politicsfor the past three years

hasfocused on the provinces,and

it is in theheartlandwhere Mr

Peters hopes to find muchofhis

hoped­for 5percent of the vote.

Thediversity of Mr Peters’

portfoliosmeansthat while he

hasperhaps gainedfavourinthe

south for championinglocal

industry, he has alsoearned local

criticismasRacing Minister for

the revamp of the sport which

has cast realdoubt on the future

of somesmaller race venues.

‘‘If youcan’tkeep it going how

doyou expect central

government to keep you going,

because youare just sucking the

wholelifebloodout of the

industry’s future,solet’s have

some rationalisation,’’MrPeters

said.

‘‘Parochialismhas stopped it

all this time, butanybody whois

interestedinracing’s long­term

future,weare puttingitall

togethernow ...

‘‘I knowthat people willbe

upsetand won’t wantthisto

happen, but if you enjoyracing

youwant racing to be performing

like the Irish racing model does,

andwehaven’t been.’’

While Mr Peters claimsmany

winsonNew ZealandFirst’s

watch, such as the provincial

growth fund,increased funding

forForeign Affairsand Trade,

andsubstantial investmentin

equipment for the defence

forces, it is perhapsanon­thehoof

policy change which was his

most significant politicalmoment

in the past three years.

Following the mosque

shootings, NewZealand First,

whichhad previouslyproven

difficult to budge on firearm

reform, agreed to sweeping

changes to gunlaws; Mr Peters

explainedsimply thatthe world

hadchanged.

Although it might have cost his

party some much­neededvotes,

he stands by his shift in position.

‘‘We arefromthe countryside,

we havelivedonfarms, we have

used guns, we knowthat pest

control is massive anditis

literally amatter of survivalin

some cases.

‘‘Weunderstand allthat, but

we werenever going to be the

puppets of the NRA(National

Rifle Association) from the

UnitedStates.

‘‘Youcan’t have 51 people lose

their lives and 49 almostdeador

He has copped considerable

flak from National—which

this term with his first in

‘‘At leastnow it is atransparent

Trusttum exhibition

marks anniversary

By SHELLEY TOPP

The Arts in Oxford Gallerybegan its 10th

anniversary celebrations last weekwith

the installationofanexhibition by

Philip Trusttum, one of New Zealand’s

leading figurative, expressionist artists.

The Christchurch octogenarian, who

livedinOxfordfrom 1949 until 1954, is

also apatron of the gallery.

He is known for his large­scale,

energetic paintings,and the work in his

latest exhibition, What Have We Got

Here,istrue to form.

All of the confronting work in this

exhibition begs that veryquestion.

At firstglance, DonkyDance could be

aportrait of alarge voodoo doll but it is

actually a2018 figurativeportrayal of

one of the artist’s grandchildren wearing

amask, purchased from a$2shop.

Suzuki,a2019 painting of the Suzuki

automotive emblem,iseasier to

interpretwith its give­away title.

However, the answer to ‘‘what have

we got here’’ is not so obviousfor Philip's

painting of another motor company

emblem, entitled Holden.

The 14 acrylics on unstretchedcanvas

in WhatHave We Got Here wereinstalled

at the gallery on Wednesdaylastweek.

An officialopening of the exhibition

willbeheld in the galleryat1.30pm this

Saturday.

Before theopening, acreative forum

and paneldiscussion will be held at the

gallery and, afterthe opening,Philip

willgive atalk and create a

collaborative artworkwith hisaudience.

Oxford Arts Trustchairwoman Areta

Wilkinson saysthe gallery is excited to

havePhilip’s involvement in the

celebrations. The exhibition runs until

Sunday, November8.

Key elements for great silage

It is impossible to produce high quality

silage from low quality pasture, no

matter how good the fermentation.

Both the quality of the ensiled

pasture and the quality of the

fermentation must be considered.

What is pasture silage?

Silage is pickled pasture. When

pasture is ensiled, its sugars are

converted into lactic acid by bacteria. It

is the lactic acid which pickles the

pasture, allowing it to be preserved for

alot longer than it would have been if

left in the open air.

With well­preserved silage, losses in

feed value during fermentation will be

small, and the final silage will be only

slightly lower in feed value than the

original pasture.

Good quality pasture silage is agood

source of energy and protein for a

milking cow and can be used as afibre

source when feeding high­sugar or

starchy feeds. However, apoor quality

pasture silage (made from low quality

pasture, or ensiled with low quality

fermentation, or both) will not support

high milk yield and will be suitable only

for dry cows, or as afibre source to

reduce risk of acidosis.

Losses when making pasture silage

Losses occur as sugars and protein in

the grass are broken down by enzymes,

and bacteria. This process starts as

soon as the grass is cut. Losses decrease

quality as well as quantity, because it is

the highly digestible components which

are most rapidly broken down.

Losses during harvesting

Losses depend on the dry matter of

the pasture. The optimum dry matter

for silage is 25­30%, because total drymatter

loss is minimised.

It is best to cut in the morning of a

sunny day for rapid wilting. Cutting

after 1to2days of sunny weather will

result in good sugar levels in the

pasture, even when cut in the morning.

Avoid wilting for more than 24 hours.

Compact the silage well.

In astack or pit, use the heaviest

wheeled vehicle available. —Dairy NZ

Spring warmth ... Contractors are hoping for abusy season, but there has been alack of consistent spring rain so far.

Staffrecruited as

seasonbegins

By DAVID HILL

Spring is in the air and North

Canterbury agricultural contractors are

looking forward to abusy season.

Local contractors spoken to by North

Canterbury News say they have their

staff recruited and the machinery is

ready for whatever Mother Nature

throws at them.

‘‘There’s abit going on, but we are all

shaping up for adry one,’’ Bethell

Agriculture owner Sam Bethell says.

‘‘The winter crops are being reworked

and resown and the fodder crops

are in the ground, and it’s not long until

the baleage starts.’’

Adry winter, alack of consistent

spring rain and the predicted La Nina

weather pattern this summer has left

farmers and contractors on aknife­edge.

‘‘It’s very dry at the moment. We would

be lucky to have had half of our annual

rainfall so far, which doesn’t bode well

with La Nina just around the corner,’’ he

says.

Sam runs asmall operation with just

four staff.

Fletcher Farms owner Nigel Fletcher

says it has been aspring of extremes so

far, with last week’s ‘‘horrific’’

northwesterly wind blowing away the

little bit of rain which had fallen, and

then followed up by about 2.5cm of snow.

‘‘It’s starting to get abit busier, but it’s

very weather dependent,’’ he says.

But he has had no trouble recruiting

staff.

‘‘We advertised and we had 20­odd

people put their CVs in. Alot of people

were scared they wouldn’t get skilled

staff, but Ifind more often than not

people from higher skilled jobs can

transition pretty quickly.’’

BA Murray Ltd director Steve Murray

says he is enjoying abusy start to the

season.

‘‘It’s busy enough, which is interesting

in spite of the fact that everybody is

predicting it to be arecession.

Everybody Italk to is flat out.

‘‘The silage started early and we’re on

to cultivation and drilling. It’s been an

interesting season.

‘‘We started doing silage in August,

which is unusual.

‘‘We normally start in September and

then November is manic, but for

someone to say get into it in August, it’s

abit unusual.’’

But Steve says the early­cut silage may

be needed later in the season if

conditions remain dry.

He has two more staff joining his

ranks over the next few weeks and then

his team will be full.

Sanders Contracting owner Stuart

Sanders says there has been some good

grass growth through the winter, but it is

too early to say whether the spring is

going to be agood one.

‘‘These showers are good and, if they

keep up, it will make adifference, but

what snow there’s been has been

disappearing pretty quickly.

‘‘It’s just amatter of staying positive

and see what Mother Nature throws at

us, because she will decide what work

there is.’’

Stuart is asole operator, with acouple

of casual staff he can call on when

needed.

youth and men in rural communities as

being the most at­riskgroups, Mrs Gower

says rural women are equallyatrisk of

becoming isolated, especially in times of

adversity and low payouts.

‘‘They talkabout the poor farmer who

worriesabout the farm and theiranimals,

butthe women also worry about the farm,

theanimals, the kids, the booksand the

community.

‘‘Womenare the glue whichholds

communities together. The common

worry is ‘ifsomething happens to me, who

will pickupthe pieces’. They are holding

everything together.’’

Education around self­awareness of

wellbeing is agood place to start,Mrs

Litchfield says.

‘‘Through education,wecan make sure

employers are more aware of their

employees’wellbeing and in turn their

ownwellbeing.

‘‘We need to normalise ‘baddays’, that

it’s OK to have ‘bad days’ and thatfeeling

stress andfatigue are normal andthat the

sundefinitely comes out the next day.’’

Relationship building between farm

owners and their employees is another

wayofbreaking down isolation.

Not amused ... Federated Farmers North Canterbury president Cameron Henderson

is not impressed with the government’s freshwater consultation.

Freshwater rules

continue to irk

By DAVID HILL

A‘‘lack of goodconsultation’’has led to

‘‘badfreshwater regulation’’, Cam

Hendersonsays.

The Federated Farmers North

Canterbury presidentsays theinitial

six­weekconsultation period, during

one of the busiest times on the farming

calendar, was not good.

The governmentextendedthe

consultation periodtoeight weeks and

received more than 17,000 submissions.

‘‘To be fair to the government, there

were some changes made in theface of

that avalancheofopposition,’’ Mr

Hendersonsays.

‘‘Butwarnings at that time, and many

timessince, from Federated Farmers

and othersthat some of the proposals

wouldnot only be extremely expensive

but also unworkable in apractical sense,

were ignored.’’

Agriculture Minister Damien

O’Connordisputedthis,saying extensive

consultation was done with farming

leaders ‘‘over aperiod of many months

both before and after the public

consultation’’.

‘‘There were thousands of

submissions received as partoflast

year’s consultations. The Government

listenedand as aresult many changes

were made to the original plan.’’

Changes included alongertimeline to

implement changes, anational bottom

line for dissolved inorganic nitrogen not

to be implementedatthis stage, and

existing permanentfencesare not

required to be moved viaregulation, Mr

O’Connor says.

But Mr Hendersonsays the changes

do not go far enough, as the October and

November deadlines for re­sowing

winter cropped paddocks tookno

account of weather conditions,are

‘‘unrealistic and are more likelyto

reduce water qualitythan improve it’’.

Low slope mapsprepared for the new

stockexclusionrules are equally

confusing as consultation documents

identified 3.8 millionhectares as low

slopepastoralland, whereas the final

regulations identified aroundsix

million hectares, includinghill and high

country land, he says.

Mr O’Connorsays he is meetingwith

farmers around the country and,while

the policy is good, the implementation

may need to be adjusted for each region.

‘‘Implementation comes downtothe

sensibleapplication of necessary

regulations. It became apparentthat

some of the regulations withinthe

freshwater standards,including ones

around winter grazing, needed to be

adjusted, so we did that.’’

Meetingsare ongoing with Ministry

for the Environmentand Primary

Industries officials to work on making

the mappingdata more accurate, Mr

O’Connor says.

‘‘Theintentisvery clear —tocleanup

our waterways. Where the regulations

are impractical or unclear, we will

continuetomake adjustments.

‘‘It is achange in practice for some

farmers but we’llmake sure that it

achieves the outcomes that the vast

majorityoffarmers say they want, which

is better waterquality,betteranimal

welfare standards,and makingsure that

we can sell good quality producttothe

world.’’

NZTA has approved. Staff will make some changes

after feedback from the Board and then go out for

community consultation in coming weeks.

Cadets welcome return to level 1

By DAVID HILL

Waimakariri’s CivilDefence

cadets are hopingfor more

consistencyafter apandemicaffected

first year.

MakaylaKoppert, aged 13, is

among agroupofyoung people

selectedfor the first intake of the

Waimakariri District Council’s

Civil Defence cadetsprogramme,

which began in February.

But the cadets have been able to

meetonly during level 1, so

training opportunities have been

limited.

‘‘Duringthe lockdown we did

sometraining fromhome (via

Zoom) and some paperwork, and

we hadreally only justgot back

intoitand then we wentback to

level 2,’’ Makaylasays.

The cadets managed to have a

weekend camp in July, which was

meant to be thesecondcamp for

the year after the firstwas cancelled

because of the lockdown.

‘‘Itwas really fun. Ididn’t think

we would be doing as many

activities, but we got to use radios

and we learned about fire

extinguishers, and we got closer as

ateam,’’she says.

Makaylahopestotrain as a

nurse and wants to be involved in

emergency services.

The cadets programme is the

first of its kindinNew Zealand,

but the initiative is popular in

Australia, says Waimakariri

DistrictCouncil civil defence

emergency management officer

Chris Field.

Chris is working alongside the

council’s youth development

facilitator, Sam Redman,sothe

trainingisabout developing young

leaders as well as trainingfor

emergency services.

‘‘We think this is good for

Waimakariri.

‘‘It fits in with the youth

development strategy,and in the

youthsurvey young people said

they wanted to be involved in the

communityand to be recognised

...as having value, and Ithink this

is agood way of doing that.’’

The programme has good

support from other local

emergency, volunteer and cadet

organisations, such as Fire and

Emergency New Zealand, the

police, St John, theWaikuku

Beach Surf Life Saving Club, the

Rangiora 88 Squadron air cadets,

and the StudentVolunteer Army.

Chris hopes, with level1,the

cadets will have more time to get

involved in the community.

The programme is funded for up

to 20 cadets, so there will be

anotherintake next year.

Outdoor spring burns

weather kickin.

Canterbury PrincipalRural

Fire Officer Bruce Janes says

windsand dry conditions

create the perfect recipe for

firestoget out of control.

‘‘We knowalot of land

managers have been

undertakingpre­planned

burnsoverthe last coupleof

months, but we just want to

remind themtobecareful

aboutconditions if theyhave

any moreplanned overthe

next monthorsix weeks.

‘‘We are expectingsummerlike

conditions to hit earlier

than previousyears,socaution

and care are needed when

planningand undertaking the

burn,’’ he says.

FENZisalso calling for

caution if peoplehave had a

fireinthe pastweek or so.

Withhigh winds forecast, it is

important to ensure there are

no hot embers remaining,even

if it means turning over the fire

and pouring water on the ashes

to prevent flare­ups in a

howlinggale.

FENZwarnsthat fires in

nor’west winds limits its

resources, with aircraftnot

abletohelp in highwinds.

If anyone is planning afire,

FENZwouldlike to be

informed about howbig it is

expected to be, what timeit

was going to be lit, and if there

was any way FENZ could help.

‘‘Wecan help with reviewing

weather patterns and

identifying safe areas to burn.

It is also important to be aware

of the weather conditions in

the days after your planned

burn, as fires could easily flare

up.’’
