Just a reminder that National still as its govt appointed commissioners in Environment Canterbury - Canterbury's regional council. We are the only electorate where we still get taxed by them but get np say on who should be representing us. Every other regional council in NZ you get to vote.

This is not democracy!. And worse yet the Commisars have achieved fvck all with our local waters in worse condition now compared with when they were first installed.

Yep National does not trust local democracy...we got the Super City in Auckland without those in the old council areas being given a referendum.
