Nationalising of our drinking water

Fiona from Burnside

Hi there fellow Christchurchites/Cantabrians. I don't know about you but I am very concerned about the legislation in parliament at the moment to nationalise our drinking water. My understanding of this is that our water will be managed at national level, not at a local level like it is at the moment with the council managing it. Also there is a organisation called Water NZ who want to chlorinate all the drinking water in NZ including Canterbury's beautiful artesian water. For goodness sake a Chinese company is stealing millions of litres of our water here in Christchurch every day! And yet there is a call to permanently chlorinate our water. I know Christchurch people are fierce about our beautiful water. I know some areas are still chlorinated but this was only a temporary measure. Not a popular one though! But this people ... this will be permanent. I'm not sure when we will know the outcome of this legislation being passed. Someone out there might know how the whole political process works.
As a collective of people in this great city we need to come together and oppose this. I think we need to come up with a plan to make our feelings known to our local MPs, ask the CCC what they are doing to oppose this plan and whatever other ideas you have, maybe a petition? I think a city-wide rally would be great too. So I'm putting it out there. I am happy to meet with a motivate bunch of people to make this known to everyone who lives in Christchurch and surrounding areas and to start making some serious noise about our concerns. Let's put our collective heads together.
I don't want this to become a moaning session. I want this to be a productive online chat about where to next and suggestions of timing of things.
Regards
Fiona

Kiwi kids are less fit and weigh more

Anna Williams Reporter from The Press

A study of 500 15-year-olds across two generations found Kiwi kids today are less fit and weigh between 8kg and 13kg more than their parents did.
What do you think is the cause of this - screen time, less exercise, poor diet, or something else?

Poll: What should the collective noun be for people from Christchurch?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Australia has its Sydneysiders, Melburnians and Brisbanians, while New Zealand has Aucklanders, Wellingtonians and Dunedinites.

But where does that leave Christchurch?

There is no collective term for residents of the Garden City and although Cantabrian is commonly used, it could equally apply to people living in Waimate or Omarama – more than 200 kilometres away.
