Maori Wards

Trevor from Richmond

I see that the Nelson City Council and Mayor have decided to establish a Maori Ward rather than choose democracy. The choice to establish a Maori Ward was soundly defeated in the recent democratic referendum intitiated by Nelson ratepayers. Of course the government has now put a stop to ratepayer's democratic rights in this regard. However, Nelson ratepayers need to know that their council's decision can be reversed.
Tasman District Council ratepayers need to know that the establishment of Maori Wards is an OPTION, and should let Mayor Tim King and councillors know their views. Local Government NZ has recommended to all councils (Nelson CIty Council couldn't have got the message!!!) that they survey their ratepayers to act on behalf of ALL ratepayers, and get a mandate for their decision on Maori Wards.

Should CBD oil be more widely prescribed by GPs?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Steve Taylor went to a number of GPs to be prescribed CBD oil for his epileptic seizures but no doctors would help. He turned to a Green Fairy for the natural elixir, where he didn't need a script and paid a fraction of the over-the-counter price. Do you think CBD oil should be easier to get hold of through GPs?
