Strategist to Control water controversy

Max from Papanui

The truth about the poisoning of Christchurch's pure clean water has now to be further muddied by new Council appointments to ensure they can continue poisoning our water. Their new 'secret' unnamed department's purpose is to ensure the taste and smell disappears so we won't know what they are doing and stop complaining. The Council is now moving the goal posts as to just taste and smell. This will ensure they can make the health stats of cancer and dementia here the same as everyone else. So they will continue with chlorine and will be able to add fluoride and any other mass medications they can think of without it being detected or mentioned. They are going to deal with the issues as some sort control platform of public relations information so we will be swamped in make believe dishonest science as has already taken place. TIME FOR THE COUNCIL TO GET REAL, GET HONEST AND MAKE CHRISTCHURCH SAFE FROM THIS CORRUPTION.

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Cathedral Square's business and property owners fear the drawn-out cathedral rebuild saga will make a mess of all other plans for the area.

Laws passed in December give the upcoming Christ Church Cathedral repair project access to all public parts of the square, including roads, for up to 15 years.
