FAMILY HISTORY: Brigham Riwai-Couch tries on his great grandfather Ben Couch’s All Blacks blazer with the help of proud mum Melanie Riwai-Couch. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Righting the wrongs of a rugby injustice „„ By Sarla Donovan SEVENTY YEARS ago, Brigham Riwai-Couch’s great grandfather could have worn this blazer (above) on the All Blacks’ tour of South Africa. But Ben Couch never got the chance – he wasn’t selected for the 1949 tour because the New Zealand

Rugby Football Union left Maori players out of the 30man squad to meet apartheid conditions set by South Africa.  Mr Couch was one of three players who weren’t considered for the tour because they were Maori. He later went on to become a politician and Minister of Maori Affairs.

„„ By Sophie Cornish A STAFFORDSHIRE bull terrier cross which mauled to death a dog and injured its elderly owner had been classified as menacing and ordered to wear a muzzle. The dog escaped through a window and killed seven-year-old bichon frise, Charlie, two weeks ago in the Prestons subdivision. Charlie’s owner, Roger Stare, 73, was bruised and bitten during the attack. The staffordshire cross has been put down. The city council is investigating whether the person who had care of the dog at the time of the attack will be fined. The maximum penalty is $3000. The person in charge of the dog was visited by dog control two weeks before the fatal attack after it had escaped from the property and was chasing a neighbour’s cat, a city council spokeswoman said. He was issued with a written warning notice under section 57 of the Dog Control Act 1996. In February, dog control officers ordered the staffordshire cross to be muzzled while at large in a public place, and it was classed as menacing. Mr Stare was shocked when The Star told him yesterday the dog had been subject to a muzzling order. “It would’ve saved Charlie, it definitely would’ve saved Charlie,” he said. •Turn to page 9

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK I’M SURE Ben Couch would be proud of his great grandson Brigham. On page 1 today, we reveal why in a pretty special sort of a story. Brigham, 17, will play for Christchurch Boys’ High School at the world schools’ rugby festival in South Africa next year. Nearly 70 years ago, his great grandfather, an All Black, never got the chance to play the Springboks in the republic. Why? Because he was Maori. The South Africans wouldn’t allow him and two other players on the tour because of the republic’s apartheid policy. The NZRFU didn’t come out of it well either – it bowed to the South Africans and left Couch and the others behind. How times have changed. A heart-rendering article on pages 4-5 about St Margaret’s College music teacher Jonathan Densem. He has just recorded an album and has a concert on Monday. He has a wife and a young family. He also has terminal brain cancer. Support the concert. – Barry Clarke

COMIC STRIP RECORD?

9, 1867, the Lyttelton railway tunnel opened, the first in the world to be drilled through a volcano rim. It was New Zealand’s first tunnel and, at the time, was described as one of the longest in the world, yet it had been planned and financed by a tiny colonial settlement with a population of just over 9000 (6647 in Christchurch and 2510 in Lyttelton). On December 10, 1989, Sunday trading began in Christchurch.

A 113m comic strip along the hoarding next to the Convention Centre could earn a world record. It is the first professionally commissioned artwork produced by 28-year-old Felicity Jane Powell, of RE:Edit Publishing. An application has been made to Guinness World Records to recognise it as the largest comic strip ever produced by an individual. The Convention Centre is due to open in 2020.

Pope appoints former college deputy as Chch bishop In Brief

A NEW bishop for the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch has been appointed by Pope Francis. Father Paul Martin succeeds Bishop Barry Jones who died in February 2016. The former St Bede’s deputy rector, who was born in Hastings, will be the 10th bishop

of Christchurch. His ordination will take place early next year. “I’d like to express what a privilege it is to be chosen to serve in the Diocese of Christchurch as bishop, following in the footsteps of those before me,” Bishop-elect

Martin (left) said. “I am really looking forward to taking up this ministry and leading the diocese.” It is anticipated one of Bishop-elect Martin’s first key decisions will be to approve the restoration of the earthquake-damaged Cathe-

dral of the Blessed Sacrament on Barbadoes St. Before his death, Bishop Jones approved a project to restore the Cathedral’s nave for about $45 million. Catholic leaders are raising $70 million for the restoration of the whole Cathedral, which is estimated to cost $100 million.

CHARITY CRICKET MATCH The Crusaders will play a T20 cricket match on Sunday against an all-star team of sports people to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis New Zealand. The annual fundraiser will be held at Christchurch Boys’ High School from 11am. The all-star team will be made up of Olympians and top sporting personalities. The free event will include a sausage sizzle, autograph signings, charity auction, bouncy castle and a children’s cricket academy.

had a Ngai Tahu father and Ngati Mutunga mother. He played seven matches for the All Blacks from1947 to 1949, and later went on to be MP for Wairarapa in 1975 – one of the first two Maori ever to win a general seat. He was Minister of Police in 1981 during the Springbok tour of New Zealand. Jared Riwai-Couch remembers his grandfather as man of integrity, “an honest man”

who spoke the truth and was well known and loved in his Wairarapa community. Brigham was showing leadership skills like his great grandfather, he said. “We’re extremely proud of his achievements. We keep his feet firmly grounded but he’s done himself and his great grandfather proud.” The schools rugby festival event is being organised by

former Springboks coach Heyneke Meyer. South Africa’s top 10 school teams are confirmed, and Mr Meyer has sent invites to 25 leading New Zealand rugby schools, and around the globe to Fiji, Tonga, Japan, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Georgia, England, Ireland and France. One of South Africa’s oldest schools, Paarl Boys’ High School, plays host.

•From page 1 Doing the haka on South African soil tops his mostlooked-forward-to list. “I’m really excited to perform the haka there. Being a proud Maori – proud of my culture – I feel I will also be representing my great grandfather, and my tipuna and my school.” His parents, Melanie and Jared, have told him stories about his great grandfather all his life, though they never met. Mr Couch died in 1996 but he passed on one of his traits to Brigham, who also kicks off both feet. It was an ability Ben Couch honed while living with his aunt and uncle in Kohunui, a rural pa near Pirinoa in south Wairarapa. “One of the stories dad told me is how his (Mr Couch’s) uncle used to take him out into the paddock with a bull whip and whichever side he cracked it, left or right, my great grandpa would kick the ball and try and catch it; that’s how he became really quick.” The blazer Brigham is wearing in the photo on the front page has been passed through the family and now has pride of pace in their Somerfield home. Ben Couch was born at Lyttelton in 1925, the first of eight children of a farmer, George Manning Moke Couch, who had an English father and Ngai Tahu mother, and his wife, Hinerua Riwai of Rapaki, who

LINWOOD LIQUOR BAN The idea to introducing a liquor ban in Linwood Village and Doris Lusk Reserve will be discussed by city councillors today. The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board asked the city council to request a permanent ban be investigated. The board also asked whether a temporary ban could be put in place over summer until a permanent solution could be introduced. The proposed ban comes after concerns that people drinking in the area are making others feel unsafe, as well as impacting on businesses and creating rubbish in the area.

Fire, quake, to terminal brain cancer: Music teacher Jonathan Densem survived the 2009 Black Saturday bush fires in Victoria and moved back to Christchurch before the earthquakes. At the beginning of last year he was told he had a brain tumour which was terminal. Now he has recorded an album and is playing a concert in Christchurch on Monday. Julia Evans reports

THROUGHOUT 2015, Jonathan Densem had been feeling ill most days. He was struggling to keep up with his work as a piano and music teacher at St Margaret’s College. After waves of nausea, moments of mental absence and the odd out-of-body experience Mr Densem decided it was time to go to his doctor. He was referred to a neurologist. An EEG brain scan and MRI later, on New Year’s Eve Mr Densem was found to be having hundreds of micro-seizures daily. “It’s really hard to describe. You feel nauseous and there are strange impulses in your brain.

UNITED:

But you’re not going to be sick,” he said. The cause of these microseizures wasn’t known until Mr Densem was at the Margaret Mahy Family Playground with his wife Emma Smetham and two children Otto, 12, and Caspar, 8. The phone rang unexpectedly,

it was his GP. More than a year ago his “My doctor told me you need doctors told him he was “on his to go to hospital and check into own,” Ms Smetham said. “He’s the emergency department right had all the treatment he can. now,” he said. “They found a Anything now is just prolongtumour the size of a kiwifruit in ing,” she said. the front of my head.” While the tumour is still there Mr Densem was told his cancer two years later, it has shrunk a was terminal as soon as he was little, he said. “I’m better than I THUrsdaY JanUarY diagnosed. was.” 31 2013

But brain cancer was just “another thing.” Caspar was a miracle baby born amid Victoria’s Black Saturday bushfires, which claimed 173 lives. Mr Densem and a heavily pregnant Ms Smetham fled their Buxton home, 100km from Melbourne, with three-year-old Otto as the deadly fires came to within 1km of their tinder-dry property. Six hours later they were in Shepparton Hospital, welcoming baby Caspar. “People laugh when we say we came home for the climate. But we did. We were thinking about leaving before the fires happened. It was just time,” he said. That was just the first of a “double jeopardy” of sorts. The family feared for their lives a second time when their Cust home was rattled by earthquakes mere months after they moved home following 16 years in Australia. “We’d just got over the first hurdle of building up a business. I’d lucked into a really good studio in the Arts Centre,” he said. Although Mr Densem said the home only sustained “cracks and minor stuff,” the studio he was working out of in the Arts Centre was badly damaged.

School music teacher’s big concert His piano and recording equipment was only just salvaged from the Arts Centre wreckage before the buildings were closed off. “We were trying to see the funny side, but it was pretty depressing. It was amazing going through the same emotions as we had in Australia.” But it wasn’t until the diagnosis of grade 4 glioblastoma multiforme, his wife calls it the “big kahuna” of brain cancer, that Mr Densem was finally pushed to record his album, I’m Saying it Now. “These songs have been written for more than 25 years. People would often say to me when are we going to be able to get your album. But I was too busy living,” he said. “And then I got brain cancer. There were no excuses after that. I had to do it.” To fulfil the lifetime dream of having his music recorded, Ms Smetham and Mr Densem started a Givealittle page in December 2016. It drew in $57,019. “Turns out it’s quite an expensive job, recording an album and putting on a show,” he said. Mr Densem enlisted producer Greg Haver who has worked with Manic Street Preachers and

was his album, always “our” and “we.” “This is a huge celebration. I can turn around and give it back,” he said. It was recorded with the help of his wife, and two sons, who have both inherited the Densem musical gene. “Otto’s a prestigious guitarist. He can do a lot of things on a guitar I can’t . . . and Cass plays the drums, as well as piano, under sufferance,” he said. That musical gene can be traced back a generation to Mr Densem’s father, John. He was a jazz musician, songwriter and worked at the Court Theatre. But it’s not the only thing Mr Densem has in common with his father. John Densem passed away unexpectedly at the same age Mr Densem was when he received his diagnosis, 47. “December 27 last year I finally became older than my father. It was quite something,” he said. Now looking forward to his

concert, Mr Densem popped a bottle of bubbles to celebrate. “We’re onto the phase where it’s really real but I’m still not too jaded. I’m excited,” he said. But after wrapping up his second concert in Auckland next Thursday, Mr Densem said he’s got a bigger job to get on with. “I’m going to turn even more attention to it. To fighting it. Not just keeping it at bay,” he said. Mr Densem said future planning is a big part of that fight. He’s hoping to take on more piano students next year. “There are a lot of people who don’t have a good outcome with this diagnosis. But there are people living with brain cancer for 20 years, I’d be pushing 70 by then. That’s my plan to be one of those people,” he said. And there are still several things to get off the bucket list before then. “I’ve co-written the rock musical King of the World. Which we’re hoping to get produced next year,” he said. But the Densems also have plans to head to Broadway to go to Hamilton: An American Musical. Plus he won’t be going anywhere before seeing the Sydney Swans win another AFL Premiership.

Councillors may set own pay

Elected members criticise plan „„ By Bridget Rutherford CITY councillors do not want the power to vote on how much they are paid because it could cause “unnecessary tension”. The Remuneration Authority is proposing to give all councils the ability to decide how much councillors and elected board members are paid to better reflect community needs and workloads. Currently, the authority sets city councillors’ salaries. Under the new plan, remuneration would be set by a 75 per cent majority council vote. The authority would continue to determine the mayor’s salaries. But a draft submission on the plan, put together by city council staff after feedback from community board members and city councillors, said it is not in favour of the plan. “The council considers that councils deciding on councillor and community board remuneration would be problematic and have the possibility to cause

NO GO: The city council says being given the power to determine how much its elected members are paid could cause “unnecessary tension”.

unnecessary tension,” the submission said. “The impact of legislative requirements for council decisionmaking and public participation could make decision-making contentious and open councils up to unnecessary public criticism.” Under the plan, each council would have a pool of money to pay salaries, relative to its size, which would remain the same even if the number of elected members changed. Currently, the authority annually reviews how much elected members are paid.

In July, Mayor Lianne Dalziel’s pay went up to $190,245, Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner was on $118,220 and city councillors received $102,400. Community board members’ pay ranged from $9527 to $23,742, while the chairs’ salaries were between $19,056 and $47,480. If the change goes ahead, a structure will be set out to determine pay and a base salary for city councillors. But they could be paid extra for additional work, such as being on a committee. City councillor Vicki Buck said she was not in favour of the idea.

City council workers yet to receive living wage „„ By Bridget Rutherford CITY COUNCIL staff who qualify for the living wage haven’t received their first pay cheque under the plan, but will be back paid once it has been finalised before the end of the year. In August, city councillors voted to implement the living wage for about 480 staff – most of whom were part-time or casual workers – by October 31. A city council spokeswoman said when the policy is confirmed, those staff will be back paid to October 31. That is expected to be within the next two pay cycles. The living wage is $20.20 an hour, which is estimated to be the amount needed to pay for the necessities of life. City councillors also requested a report on whether the living wage could be extended to city council-controlled organisations within three months. However, the spokeswoman said that is a complex process, and it is now expected to be completed early next year.

“That’s always going to be fraught.” City councillor David East said elected members had input into the draft submission. “I wouldn’t feel comfortable about the vote determining my own salary.” Consultation on the plan closes on December 15. The authority would then consider the feedback and aims to have the new rules in place by the next local body elections in 2019. In its submission, the city council also raised concerns over the way community board members’ pay was determined by population, rather than workload. Some members and chairs were paid more than others due to the population of the wards they represented. The submission also said community board chairs were being paid double that of members, which did not reflect the balance of roles, and it wanted the difference reduced. City councillors are to discuss and approve the draft submission at a meeting today. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the city council should be able to set how much its councillors and community board members are paid?

The owner could be liable on conviction to pay a fine of up to $3000. Another dog from the property which escaped with the staffordshire – but did not participate in the attack – had been asked to be removed from the subdivision, Prestons residential sales manager John Almao said.

ANZ plans to close Avonhead bank

INJURIES: The aftermath of the attack on Mr Stare.

„„ By Emily O’Connell ANOTHER BANK branch is closing in Christchurch. Avonhead Shopping Centre’s ANZ will combine with ANZ Upper Riccarton next Friday. It follows on from plans by Westpac, which is considering closing its New Brighton, Sydenham and Lincoln branches. “The number of customers visiting the Avonhead branch has been declining and this follows a national trend,” ANZ manager external communications Emma Mellow said. Ms Mellow said the average ANZ customer uses mobile banking one to two times a day and visits a branch two times a year.

“With more than a 25 per cent decrease over the past three years, and with ANZ Upper Riccarton just 4km away, it’s logical to combine them,” she said. ANZ Upper Riccarton is undergoing $700,000 of refurbishments. All ANZ Avonhead Shopping Centre staff will work at the ANZ Riccarton branch. “Like all businesses, we’re always looking at our network and where our customers most need us,” Ms Mellow said. Westpac says internet and mobile phone banking, and changing populations because of the earthquakes, is the reason for its planned closures.

Tribesmen migrate south and The Tribesmen Motorcycle Club has made their way to Canterbury. But police are already on their tail, raiding gang-connected properties across the region last week. So who are the Tribesmen and where do they come from? Andrew King reports IN THE 80s, a Maori motorcycle gang emerged in Otara, South Auckland, called the Tribesmen. They were formed by exmembers of the Stormtroopers, a Northland-based gang known for a brutal riot in Moerewa near the Bay of Islands, in which numerous officers, firefighters and gang members were severely injured in 1979. The Stormtroopers attempted to throw Senior Sergeant Charles O’Hara on to a van which had been set alight. He could be heard yelling “mercy, mercy” before being rescued by fellow officers and firefighters. Once the violence had

subsided, 28 gang members were arrested. The Tribesmen have chapters set up in Otara, Rotorua, Murupara in the Bay of Plenty, and in North Canterbury, where police say the gang has been setting up a “new pad”. The spread of the Tribesmen into Canterbury adds to a number of heavy-hitting motorcycle gangs including the Bandidos, Head Hunters and Rebels, as well as other gangs such as the Mongrel Mob, Black Power, King Cobra and the Neighbourhood Crips. On Tuesday last week, scores of armed police descended on properties believed to be linked to the Tribesmen on Jacksons Rd, Ohoka; Lower

Sefton Rd, Sefton; Barbadoes and Cranford Sts; as well as a number of storage units where methamphetamine, firearms and cash were found. Witnesses described helicopters with a large number of armed officers landing in Swannanoa, North Canterbury. The Tribesmen have links to the Killer Beez, an Otara street gang run by former Tribesmen president, Josh Masters, who

is serving 10-years in prison for drug dealing and money laundering. In the past, the Tribesmen have had links to the New Zealand Nomads, Black Power and Bad Troublesome Ward. The Tribesmen are known for violent feuds with the Mongrel Mob. In 2010, 16-year-old Jordan Herewini was murdered by mob member Quentin Pukeroa for wearing yellow – which made

him appear to be an associate of the Tribesmen – as a result of tension in Murupara between the two gangs. He was wearing his yellow school PE shirt. The teenager was run down by Pukeroa after being struck to the ground with an axe in the middle of Murupara. Pukeroa was sentenced to 15 years in jail. So what brings the Tribesmen to Canterbury?

for using the class A drug and failing to assist a police officer carrying out a search. Six other Tribesmen members and associates have also been arrested over the past few months. They face a variety of charges relating to firearms, drugs, kidnapping, aggravated robbery and receiving stolen property, Detective Inspector Murton said. “These search warrants and arrests are the culmination of several months’ work targeting suppliers of methamphetamine, to reduce the harm it causes within our community,” he said. On November 1, police and customs officers intercepted $50 million of methamphetamine in an airfreight consignment sent from Mexico. It was the largest methamphetamine bust in the South Island. Jonathan Seal, 25, and Michael Harrison-Cooper, 31, were charged with importing a Class A drug and possession of methamphetamine for supply. Detective Inspector Murton said there was no link that he was aware of between the Tribesmen and the Mexican meth import.

Change of direction for Dowsons Few people could say they haven’t bought a pair of Dowsons shoes over the years – but now the store offers a lot more after a major revamp. Bridget Rutherford reports KNOX AND Craig Dowson remember sitting on the front lawn of their Christchurch home as kids and helping their parents dye 1800 pairs of sandals brown. Their father, Keith Dowson, had bought them for about $2 a pair, and he knew if they were brown they would sell better – and they did. That was one of the first tastes the brothers got of the family trade. Decades later, they, along with their brother Mark, are directors of the family business, Dowsons, which will celebrate its 80th birthday next year. Since 1938, Dowsons has been an institution in Canterbury. But its 10 stores across the South Island now offer something a lot different – a “new direction”. Last month, Dowsons opened

FAMILY BUSINESS: Adam, Charlotte, Brent and Knox Junior Dowson at the new Concept 425 Colombo store. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER a sleek new Sydenham store, Concept 425 Colombo. The shoes, some of which are European, are spaced out on display in the showroom. Unlike the other stores, they are laid out by brand, not size. It showcases new brands such as Stegmann, Geo Reino and

Riggs. But they come alongside the tried and true ones such as Alegria, Cloudwalker, Fila and Hi-Tec. It is a move spearheaded by Knox Dowson’s son, Adam, who returned to Christchurch in 2013. He had been working in Wellington when the February 22, 2011,

earthquake hit. Dowsons lost its Lichfield St distribution centre and headquarters, its Ferry Rd store, and the store in The Palms had to close for months. It later closed the Wellington stores. “I used to call dad quite often on the phone. One day he said it’s

getting pretty hard, so I said how would you feel about me moving home and giving you a hand?” Adam said. His first project was opening the online store. The next was designing the new concept store with Tonic Design and fitting it out. “So far the feedback is they [customers] are really pleased with it.” If the new store is well received, the other Dowsons stores could follow, he said. You only need to walk in the door of the company’s Wigram distribution centre to see family is at the heart of what Dowsons does. Human Resources, payroll, marketing, merchandising and sales, distribution and design, the online store, product and logistics, and directors roles are all positions held by Dowsons. Adam’s sister Charlotte is in charge of HR, while his brother Knox Junior is in products and logistics. He and his fiancé Emily give input into what styles are stocked. The large wooden flagpole that stands tall outside the building is a reminder of the old Lichfield St headquarters. •Turn to page 14

Best foot forward for Dowsons $4.2m roof for hospital

•From page 13 Footwear manufacturer Knox Dowson started the business in 1938 on Ferry Rd. It grew and went into selling footwear, and later ceased manufacturing it. His grandson, Knox Dowson said there were times after the quakes when they wondered if they should keep the business going. “It was discussed. But it would have been a big call. It didn’t get talked about for long,” he said. “The only thing that kept us going was the fact the people around us needed to keep going.” They considered creating a new chain for the new shoes, and even a name change. “But then we thought why would you change a name that’s been around for 80 years? “This is a chance to do this completely different thing.” Adam’s brother Knox Junior, said few shoe stores offered as wide a range as Dowsons now did. It had footwear for all ages as well as work boots, school shoes, sports shoes, European brands, and more. “That’s where I see our advantage.”

SLEEK: The new Sydenham showroom displays the shoes differently to other Dowsons stores. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Craig Dowson is in charge of product sourcing – a role that is now a lot different with the new direction. He said the range of shoes they stocked was much wider now. The high-quality and look of some of the new shoes was exciting, he said. But they had stuck with the popular brands and shoes

Dowsons had always stocked, which were loved by loyal customers. He said they were taking the store in a new direction, while still focusing on what they had always done. “The key for us is always quality. The buck does stop here. It is our reputation, it’s our name on the front.”

„„ By Bridget Rutherford A $4.2 million project to replace the roof on Christchurch Hospital’s main block may see two wards have to close while the work is done. The Canterbury District Health Board has put out a tender to replace the whole roof on its Parkside building, which contains asbestos. CDHB maintenance operations manager Terry Walker said the current roof was at the end of its life, and was leaking in places. He said it had caused minor cosmetic damage to a number of rooms. Mr Walker said the project, which had a budget of $4.2 million, was expected to begin in May and take about two years. Two orthopaedics wards may need to be relocated during the work, he said. “Wards 18 and 19 may need to be decanted, after the opening of the new Acute Services Building in 2018, to allow the work to happen and in other areas the work will take place at night to minimise disruption.” Mr Walker said given the roof contained the poisonous substance, an independent consultant with previous experience

in asbestos removal had been engaged to oversee the process. The Parkside roof was a source of contention in 2013 when contractors removing moss and lichen from it said they were not told by the company they were working for that it contained asbestos. They claimed they continued working on the roof for 10 days, and walked through hospital wards unknowingly putting patients at risk. Two of the contractors were later awarded $9000 in compensation. The CDHB is awaiting a decision on Parkside’s future as part of the hospital’s redevelopment.

Ardern will meet with CTV families „„ By Bridget Rutherford PRIME MINISTER Jacinda Ardern says she will meet with the families of those killed in the CTV Building to discuss the police decision not to prosecute. The CTV Building pancaked in the 6.3 magnitude February 22, 2011, earthquake, killing 115 people. Last week, police announced they would not pursue criminal charges against Alan Reay, the principal of the company that designed the Jacinda building, and Ardern David Harding, the engineer who did the work. Yesterday, spokesman Maan Alkaisi, whose wife Maysoon Abbas died in the tragedy, said the families would request a meeting with Ms Ardern, either in Christchurch or Wellington, to discuss the police decision and the current legal system. They hoped to meet before Christmas. Ms Ardern told The Star she would be happy to meet with the families, and understood their feelings on the matter. Dr Alkaisi said the families

were seeking legal advice to see if there were grounds to challenge the police decision. He said they wanted justice for their loved ones who died, and to prevent something like this happening again. “If a tragedy like the CTV Building did not result in any resolution, it means we have many serious problems with our

legal system,” he said. “It means there have to be some changes.” Dr Alkaisi said they had already reached out to Minister of Justice Andrew Little, who was supportive of the families last week, and Minister of Greater Christchurch Regeneration Megan Woods. They would soon get in touch with Ms Ardern and National

Party leader Bill English. Dr Alkaisi, an engineering lecturer, said the possibility no one would be held accountable was “simply offensive.” It sent the message, if the city council found deficiencies in a building, it was okay, and if your building collapsed killing people, the legal system would “find an excuse for you,” he said.

QUIETLY

COOL

“I will tell my students this is what the Attorney-General of this country is saying.” Detective Superintendent Peter Read and Canterbury district commander Superintendent John Price said last week there was insufficient evidence to provide a reasonable prospect of conviction. They said the Crimes Act required death to have taken place within a year and a day after the negligent conduct ceased. “The rule of one year, one day with such a huge tragedy in the country, it is as if I bought a toaster from The Warehouse. How do you trust such a system?” Dr Alkaisi said. On Sunday, friends, family and supporters will gather at Latimer Square near the CTV site at 12.30pm to peacefully protest the police decision not to prosecute. The police inquiry followed a 2012 royal commission of inquiry that found the CTV Building had serious design flaws and should not have been granted a building consent. It said Mr Harding was left largely unsupervised by his boss, Mr Reay, in spite of Mr Harding’s limited experience designing multi-level buildings.

New book celebrates our evolving „„ By Sarla Donovan WHAT DO Jonny Schwass, Roots Restaurant, Otakaro Orchard and Cultivate Christchurch have in common? All feature in a new book about local food which looks at New Zealand’s evolving food identity and culture. The book explores current trends around growing, making and eating food through essays, profiles and recipes. Among the contributors to Kai and culture: Food stories from Aoteoroa is Jonny Schwass. The self-described “hospitality survivor” has written about decreasing the amount of meat we consume. And the best way to do that, he reckons, is to use the whole animal. “Historically, that’s what you’d do. Every family would have a pig, they’d feed it scraps from the bounty of the garden for six to eight months and then they’d kill the pig in the winter and it would help them survive when there was nothing in the garden. We’ve moved so far from that.” Mr Schwass doesn’t hesitate to pinpoint globalisation as the key issue facing New Zealand.

KNOWLEDGE: Chef and entrepreneur Jonny Schwass wants people to know where their food comes from. Above – A locust slider with ant aioli is one of the more unusual dishes in the book Kai and culture: Food stories from Aoteoroa.

“We’re trying to feed the world, but we need to feed ourselves first.” “We’ve lost a lot of respect for food, it’s become about convenience, how fast you can get it and how fast someone can get it to

you. We have this opportunity to be a great food nation, where people come here and experience some of the greatest food in the world. It’s starting to get a bit of recognition for that but we have to be really honest about how

clean and green we really are. And that’s where I see the opportunity - there’s enough people now who realise that what we’re doing isn’t quite right and there’s better ways. We’re such a young country . . . a bit rip, s**t and

bust. As we grow more as a nation we’ll start to realise you can’t treat your country and your body like that; eventually you’re going to pay the price.” Bio-diversity and sustainability are the key to success, he argues – not trying to be dominant with singleingredient products, which simply leads to a degraded environment. Natural food production on a smaller scale is the way to go, not intensive, large-scale farming. Of all the regional cuisines developing around the country, Mr Schwass puts Canterbury at the top of the pack, due in large part to its produce: lamb, beef, venison, grain, wine, seafood. There is a lot being done in the region to develop a voice for a national cuisine, he said, (though apparently Hawkes Bay is nipping at our heels.) “When everything lines up together – restaurants use local food, food growers become more diverse to feed the passion of the chefs, and the food becomes of a focus for those outside the community and globally – that’s when a country’s food culture develops,” said Mr Schwass.

with wine. The links between good grape gardening and good juice are obvious in our glass, but why is it that we often place more importance on the life cycle of a grape than on a living animal? Why do we know not to add lawn clippings to barrels of wine to produce classic Marlborough grassy sauvignon blanc, yet we accept that hundreds of tonnes of cut pork are shipped from 22 different countries, all with varying animal ethics, so we can have a cheap slice of bacon, some smoked ribs and all eat ham for ten days over the Christmas holidays?

2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped ½ teaspoon red wine vinegar 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 2 tablespoon chives, finely chopped ½ teaspoon smoked chili powder 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Smoked salt to taste Black pepper to taste 1 teaspoon capers, coarsely chopped Steps 1. Preheat the oven to 165˚C. 2. Season the liver with salt and pepper. Place the liver in a small roasting pan that is slightly larger than the

liver. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the liver has browned and the flesh is firm to the touch. Let it cool in the refrigerator until ready for use. 3. While the liver is cooling, put the venison heart mince into a cold bowl, then cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. 4. Once all the meat is cold, start by taking the liver and dicing it into 0.5cm pieces then add to the bowl with the rest of the meat. Add all other ingredients and mix gently using a spoon. Taste the mixture and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper then mound onto cold plates to be served. 5. Serve with flaxseed crackers.

Happy couple finally get to altar „„ By Bridget Rutherford IT WAS fourth time lucky for Leanne Corboy and her husband Craig as they tied the knot on Saturday. The couple had to cancel their wedding three times because Mrs Corboy had Crohn’s disease and endometriosis and had to keep going to hospital. For months she could barely walk, lost 30kg and was constantly sick until she was diagnosed. After support from the Canterbury Bowel and Liver Trust, when she started feeling better she walked in the Star Media City2Surf 14km event in March with about 40 others raising more than $4300 for the trust. So, the trust repaid the favour and organised almost her entire wedding, with many donations and offers to help – some from strangers. “It was a magical fairy tale wedding, the best day of our lives, a huge big team effort,” Mrs Corboy said. They had the ceremony in their Rangiora garden on the 30 deg C day, followed by a reception with about 100 friends and family and FINALLY: Craig and Leanne Corboy married on Saturday after West Eyreton Hall. having to cancel their wedding three times.

Bid to avoid wheelie bin confusion WHEELIE BINS will be emptied a day later than normal on Christmas and New Year’s Day as changes to the kerbside collection service are rolled out. Confusion over when bins should be put out if a collection day falls on a public holiday has prompted changes by the city council. Collections will continue as normal on all public holidays except for New Year’s Day, Easter Good Friday, Anzac Day and Christmas Day. On those public holidays, wheelie bins will be emptied the day following the normal collection day. “The past arrangements where some collection days were moved to the Saturday before the normal collection day and others moved to the Saturday after, caused some confusion and frustration for many of our residents,’’ said city council solid waste manager Ross Trotter. “As Christmas and New Year’s Day fall on a Monday this year, this means the Monday collection will move to Tuesday, the Tuesday collection will move to Wednesday, the Wednesday collection will move to Thursday,

„„ By Sophie Cornish THE CITY council has been threatened with legal action if homes in South New Brighton are damaged in a flood. The South New Brighton Residents’ Association has issued a formal notice of liability to the city council, claiming it has failed to install proper flood protection north of Bridge St and south of Owles Tce. The notice means if a flooding event does occur, the association could take the city council to court and may find it liable for damages. A city council spokeswoman said it does not accept it would be liable if the area is flooded. “The council will not be making any changes to its current process as a result of the notice of liability. The council considers its recent decisions provide a satisfactory way forward for addressing current flooding issues,” she said. But association chairman Hugo Kristinsson believes the city council could be held liable under the Land Drainage Act and Soil, Conservation and Rivers Control Act.

arrangements with your friends or neighbours for your wheelie bins to be collected and bought back onto your property,’’ Mr Trotter says. •To keep track of when your wheelie bin needs to go out, download the free wheelie bins app at the Apple AppStore or on GooglePlay.

‘Clear way forward’ for Cathedral

OVERDUE: Megan Woods has moved urgent legislation in the House to reinstate the Cathedral.

LIKE MOST Cantabrians, the sight of the badly damaged Cathedral sitting empty in our square for the last nearly seven years has been a symbol for me of the slow recovery in our city. As someone with lovely childhood memories of that building and what it represents for our city, I’ve long wanted to see a resolution. I think all Cantabrians want to see this situation sorted with a sense of urgency and momentum. This has been a long and controversial process over the last few years. I’ve been very mindful that what local people want to see is progress and a clear way forward. That’s why I was so proud this week to move urgent legislation in the House that will reinstate the Cathedral and reopen the heart of our city. This is an important milestone in the recovery from the earthquakes. It’s part of giving certainty about the future of our central city. We want to send the strong

message to people that the centre of our city will be vibrant, a great place to live, work and invest. We want tourism operators to know that one of the defining landmarks people think of when they think of Christchurch will be reopened and available to visit. We want people looking at developments in the square to know there will be certainty for planning. What the legislation will do is enable fast-tracked resource management and consenting. It will also support the creation of a reinstatement trust, providing governance and overseeing fundraising, and a joint venture project management company to oversee the reinstatement process. We

expect the reinstatement trust to be incorporated within the next two weeks. We’re pushing ahead urgently with this work because we know it’s been delayed for too long. I also want to take the time to acknowledge the previous minister, Nicky Wager, for all the work she put in bringing people together and starting to get this project back on track. Often in politics, there’s a lot of disagreement, but it has been great to have support from different sides of the house. It shows how widespread the desire is to see the broken heart of our city repaired. •Megan Woods is the Minister of Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Managing the burden on ratepayers THERE HAS been publicity lately about the level of rates increases that Christchurch has faced over recent years. The level of overdue rates looked a lot worse than it actually was, in part due to the Crown owing rates on residential red zone land it owns. That’s been sorted and what was technically overdue has been paid. A much clearer picture comes from rates that are more than six months overdue. A number of people just forget to pay by the due date, and they pay with the first reminder. This is not me making an excuse for rates increases. I want the city council to get on top of

Lianne Dalziel

its expenditure so we can return to the inflationary pressures the council faces as a preferred cap for rates increases. Our next draft Long Term Plan, which we will sign off early in the new year for public consultation, will look different from the last one three years ago. First, we know more about our

finances and our insurance is settled. This time I intend to split the rates into two parts – the percentage increase for the standard work of the city council (business as usual), and the other, a fixed amount per ratepayer over a set number of years, to provide for the

remaining repairs, new builds and regeneration opportunities that are required post the earthquakes. I prefer this approach, because it enables everyone to see what the real costs of the remaining effects of the earthquakes will be. It also means the costs of the earthquakes has a finite impact on ratepayers. I believe this is a much more transparent approach and it’s fairer. It also puts responsibility on the city council as an organisation to ensure efficient and effective service delivery. We have already met as a full city council with Megan Woods, and the deputy mayor and I

have also met with Minister of Local Government Nanaia Mahutu. Aligning our strategic priorities as a city council with the new Government presents no problems that I can see. The next step is a meeting with a group of ministers, hopefully before Christmas, which will set us on the path to a global settlement. We are both talking acceleration and I believe that’s good for Christchurch and for New Zealand. •If you want to ask Ms Dalziel a question, email mayor@ccc.govt.nz.

The dogs always get the blame but what about the owners.

I feel sorry for these people but we should all strive to make our own countries better John Carter – Should have sent him back at the start of his sentence, what a waste of money the taxpayer has to pay again. Plus the cost to provide health care. Should have been grateful for a new start that was also safe. Angela N Richard Taylor –

Our People

Rose Williams

Campaigning for workers’ rights Hornby Wendy’s worker Rose Williams fought and beat the fast food chain giant over owed lieu days. She is no stranger to adversity – her husband, Murray, died in a crash at the Ruapuna Speedway 14 years ago. The 51-yearold speaks to Emily O’Connell

Can you tell me about your childhood? Where did you grow up? I grew up living on Lincoln Rd in Addington. I went to Wharenui School and then Hillmorton High School – they were good schools. My mum had commercial glasshouses, and she used to grow about 5000 tomato plants and so as a child, I was always working in the glasshouses, packing them for the market. She had a little shop, where people used to come in and buy cucumbers and tomatoes. What was your first job?

BATTLER: Rose Williams said she learnt how to stand up for herself after her late husband died – this helped in her recent fight with Wendy’s over lieu days. PHOTO: ANDREW KING

As soon as I could leave school [at 16], I started working with racehorses. What made you want to work with racehorses? All my life my mum had racehorses. My mum used to drive

the horse down Lincoln Rd to Addington Raceway and train the horses. How long did you work with racehorses for? I worked with racehorses for probably 10 years. They were

standardbreds. That’s where I met my late husband, Murray, he also worked with horses. How exactly did you meet? I went with my mum up to a course in Nelson for harness racing and my late husband was

up there. He comes from Nelson. At the time he was there at that meeting. And did you introduce yourself? No he came up and met me. I’m a really shy person, or used to be really shy. What’s been your favourite job and why? It’d have to be the racehorses, I love animals and horses. After about 10 years I left working with the horses because we bought a house. And of course, it was very poor money working with racehorses years ago so I left to get another job. My late husband had his own trainer’s licence at that stage, so we always had horses, when he was alive. We had a couple of horses he was training, while we both had other jobs to pay for our house. Would you ever get back into it? I was in it for a few years, we breed a few foals, it’s a really expensive hobby though. So with me working at Wendy’s at the moment it wouldn’t be possible. I’ve got a sister-in-law who has horses, and my sister who lives in the United States trains racehorses. It’s a big part of my life.

and living with tragedy What are your hobbies? I love racehorses. I still love sidecar racing even though it’s hard, but that was a huge part of my life. My late husband raced, we went from Invercargill to Nelson to Westport to Blenheim and all around the South Island. So most weekends we were away with the sidecars. Did you race sidecars also? No, I was just a supporter. After my late husband died, I became a representative for the speedway for a couple of years just to help out and carry on. But I haven’t had much to do with it since working at Wendy’s because you have to work most weekends. I still love to watch it. How did your late husband get into sidecar racing? He got into it through friends. He never had anything to do with motorbikes. Unfortunately, not long before he died he decided he would give up sidecars and go back to harness racing. So it was going to be his last year but, unfortunately, it didn’t quite work out. How old was he when he died? He died a week before his 40th birthday so I buried him on his

birthday. It was a hard day, let’s put it that way. What’s your advice for people who are grieving? I think everybody’s different but I think you have to press on and work your way through it. At the end of the day, I’m so proud I’ve got my son, Josh. That’s probably helped me through it, encouraged me through. It’s a hard thing. I was so lucky at

the time, we still had racehorses and I had his motorbikes. The following year, I fixed up his bike and a friend of ours raced it for me. And that helped me through it. People were saying it was the bike or it was this, but it was just a freak accident, and it was my husband’s own fault. And then I took over training the horses we had at the time but I still continued through life normally. I had

a son to bring up so I didn’t just step away and lock myself away from the world, I carried on. Does your son race sidecars or horses? No, he hates horses because every day he wasn’t at pre-school he would come to the farm with me. He’s not even interested in animals now. And he’s not into sidecars either. I remember one particular day the following year [from my husband’s death], my friend had raced the bike and the next day you always clean-up. And they started the bike in the driveway and my son was indoors, he shut the door and locked himself in the house. He was hiding under the table. The noise of the bike terrified him. We had to take the sliding door off to get into the house. He’s into computer technology and PlayStations. Were you and your son at the race when your late husband died? I was lucky that my son was at my mum’s house. But yes, I was there watching the race. How did you end up at Wendy’s and why did you take the stand over lieu days? When I left working with

the horses, I worked for Toyota, doing assembly parts for six years. It used to be in Christchurch. I became a member of what used to be the engineer’s union. So when I was at Wendy’s, I was there for about a year and didn’t join the union. The union used to come in. I was just doing my job and going home every day but then I saw how people were being treated. The young ones get bossed and yelled at and told to work faster when it was busy. Because I’m one of the older ones there, none of them had any idea of how to stand up for themselves. It was really awful. And one day the organiser came in and talked to me and I told him we needed a union delegate here and he asked if I’d be interested and so, I took it on. How did you feel winning the case against Wendy’s? Pretty good actually, because it’s not really only for me, it’s for a whole lot of the other workers as well. One of the people in Auckland, who works at a Wendy’s store, has been there for more than nine years and has never had a lieu day.

City group prepares for Everest trek Fundraiser to rebuild Nepal village „„ By Roy Sinclair AN INTREPID Christchurch foursome is in serious training for their trek of a lifetime. Dubbed Project EBC, an acronym for Everest Base Camp, It will take place from March 24 to April 15, next year. It will be a tough multi-day effort but that is not all. “We want to leave more than footprints,’’ say one of the four, Mike Lowden. “We will also be raising funds to rebuild a home in the village – Khumjung – destroyed in the Gorkha earthquake of April 25, 2015.’’ Nine thousand Nepal people died during the earthquake which also triggered an avalanche on Mt Everest, killing 21, mostly Sherpa. April 25, 2015, became Everest’s deadliest day. The Project EBC team comprises Mike Lowden, 56, Tina Morrell, 50, Bette Chen, 37, and Fergus Flannery, 19. “We want to make a difference,’’ says Tina Morrell. “The Sherpa family of six left homeless in Khumjung is presently living under canvass. Their mother, Tangii, is ill and cannot get a proper diagnosis owing to the family’s financial situation. We want to help them get back into a structurally-sound warm home. “And we will help Tangii as well with medical expenses. “As individuals we had an ambition to do something challenging we had not done before. We eventually crossed paths and struck a really good friendship.’’ Mike is business development manager at Ideal Electric. Tina

is involved with toastmasters and marketing. Betty is the IT and digital marketing expert at Landpower agricultural machinery. Fergus is presently walking the Aotearoa Trail, the length of New Zealand. “It is a massive undertaking over about nine days,’’ says Mike Lowden.    “The distance, 10 to 16km each day, is not so much the challenge. More so will be acclimatising to altitude and coping with altitude sickness. We will climb to more than 5500m.’’ Other expected challenges include food. Meat is not recommended owing to it being old

when consumed. The team will likely be lacking in protein. Flying into Lukla airport at the start of the trek is another challenge, it being considered one of the world’s most dangerous. It was constructed in 1964 under the supervision of Sir Edmund Hillary. For all that, the adventure is expected to be mega rewarding. “We have been training individually and as a team,’’ says Tina Morrell. “We have been walking on the Port Hills along with running marathons and half marathons in an effort to build up a level of fitness. Specialised training has

been at Vertex Altitude Training. We have been treadmilling in a vacuum room where levels of oxygen and nitrogen are altered to simulate altitude.’’ Mike Lowden says the team has been working at 11 per cent oxygen. “It has been great meeting others at Vertex and sharing experiences. Some have been to Everest base camp or Kilimanjaro. It has been enjoyable.’’ The team has booked their trek with Anne Young Trekking Adventures, “She put us in touch with the Sherpa family we want to help,’’ says Mike Lowden.

Mike is no stranger at being involved in events. He organises an annual spin bike event at Ideal Electric in Montreal St. It is dubbed Tour de Montreal and is run during the famous Tour de France cycling race. The event raises funds for Special Olympics’ athletes. The experience over six years has helped Mike with Project EBC. “Tour de Montreal is not all about me. It’s also about an international Rexel Group company contributing to the community,’’ he says. Helping others is in Mike Lowden’s genes. It may simply be assisting someone experiencing problems in his workplace. The team is self-supporting enabling all fundraising to go to the house rebuild project. Buckets have been rattled in workplaces. A Givealittle page is linked to their Project EBC Facebook page. A recent presentation at Zonta Club of Christchurch-Canterbury went well, creating interest amongst professional women. “We have raised $1700 in just a month,’’ says Tina Morrell. We are aiming on $25,000 for the project. Anything over will be used to set up a scholarship for the Sherpa family kids.’’ Project EBC is looking for sponsorship. Sponsors names will be on a banner taken to Everest base camp. An upcoming fundraising event is to be held at Christchurch Casino. “It’s amazing how well the four of us have gelled,’’ says Mike Lowden. “Next year marks 65 years since Sir Ed summited Everest with Tenzing Norgay. Ed gave back to the Nepal community. What better role model could we have? “It’s all about the Kiwi attitude. We will be giving the mammoth task our best shot.’’ •Contacts.

Special bond on and off the road

„„ By Andrew King AMY HUDSON and Dylan Thomson share a special bond. Amy became the youngest person to ever win a New Zealand Rally Championship alongside her partner and driver Thomson. The 16-year-old Papanui High student and 22-year-old Auckland-born Thomson drove their 2005 Ford Fiesta ST150 to victory in the category two, twowheel-drive championship. They also won the Motorsport New Zealand two-wheel-drive title, as well as Thomson picking up the junior championship. The pair started dating after much discussion about how it would affect them inside the car, making it public just before Rally Tauranga. “We knew it could destroy what we have in the car,” Thomson said. “But if anything, it has made it slightly better because there is more trust. After we spent a bit of time together naturally we became best friends.” Said Amy: “We get on quite well,” she laughed. “People said it might be difficult but we have worked together for about a year before that so it has worked out

quite well.” Thomson said in the car, the relationship disappears and it doesn’t interfere with what they are doing. They won five out of the six rallies in the championship after

they were ruled to have exceeded their maximum lateness allowance of 30min after coming off the road in the Ashley Forest in the Canterbury Rally. “It was actually the second time we have not finished that

rally after we hit a pretty big rock last year in the Ashley Forest,” she said. Amy got into the sport when she was 12, the youngest age allowed to be inside a rally car under the current rules, after

watching her parents Lisa and Rocky compete as co-drivers. “I was in the car one week after my 12th birthday. I was just excited, I had wanted to do it for so long, and watching mum and dad having fun, I just wanted to join in,” she said. From there she was hooked and a year later competed in her first rally as a co-driver for Les Summerfield in the Catlins Coast Rally, where they placed third. Les is the father of Matt Summerfield, a 25-year-old driver from Rangiora who competes in New Zealand. Amy met Thomson two years ago after her mother was approached to co-drive for him. “I put my hand up and said I want to give it a go and we started driving together,” she said. They finished third in the open class two-wheel-drive championship in their first year before claiming three titles together this year. Looking to the future, Amy said she was unsure what they were going to do, continue in their current category or step up into the four-wheel-drive grade. “We will be looking at our options,” she said.

GARDENING ADVICE

Add bursts of colour to gardens, decks and courtyards with flowering annuals. Pop them in your garden, containers or hanging baskets and water them well over the hot summer months.

with

We have a Daltons Flower Pack to giveaway. Everything you need to get your flowers blooming! Each pack is valued at over $50 and contains:

QUESTION

I have a Metrosideros Exclesa ‘Vibrance’ (Pohutukawa) planted 4 years ago. It has grown to a height of 1.8m but has never flowered. It produces young succulent growth in the growing season, and is flanked by native Pittosporums (Black Matipo) of the same height. Sunshine is provided 6 hrs a day in summer. Why is this flourishing tree not producing any of its beautiful flowers for Christmas?

Today’s winning question came from Graham Bint. Congratulations!

Most Pohutukawa cultivars are growing from seed and therefore it may well take up to ten years before flowering regularly. Some Pohutukawa cultivars are grown by cuttings that are taken from a mature tree. Check with the nursery or garden center where you purchased the plant as to the history of the plant they have supplied to you. Do not despair - as long as the pohutukawa is growing healthily it should commence flowering in the next few years.

ANSWER

Please note that if where you live and where the plant is growing is prone to frost during the winter months, this would also contribute to the delayed flowering of your pohutukawa as the growth that would have produced summer flowers may have been destroyed by winter frost. If this is the case, you may wish to try planting the Southern Rata (Metrosideros Umbellata) which handles the colder, South Island conditions a lot better.

Lovely lavatera likes warm conditions „„ By Henri Ham LAVATERA IS a lovely plant that is great for expert and beginner gardeners alike. It is sometimes (or often in other parts of the world) known as mallow and has many great traits. It’s easy to plant, grows quickly and produces many flowers. Its pretty flowers are loved by bees and beneficial insects alike. And it’s happiest in dry conditions – perfect for this time of year. Once you’ve got your plants, look for a spot in full sun or part shade with well-drained or sandy

soil. Lavatera is great for growing in borders or garden beds – perfecting for filling space – and pots and containers. Next, dig a little hole and plant each one around 40-50cm apart from the next. Give it a bit of watering when you first plant it but don’t worry if you can’t water it regularly – it thrives in dry conditions making it perfect if you head away over summer. You can get expect to see the start of your lavatera summer show in around three weeks. If you grow seedlings you’ll need to wait a little longer – around eight weeks.

STRIKING: Lavatera produces full, colourful blooms.

Xmas with a twist at arts factory „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE LYTTELTON Arts Factory will come alive with world class circus entertainment in its final cabaret for the year. Described as a “little bit naughty and a little bit nice”, performers from various genres, including music, comedy and acrobatics, will take to the stage for the LAF Christmas Cabaret. The show has been put together and organised by variety entertainer Lizzie Tollemache. “We always try and put together the most delightfully crazy, weird and wonderful mix of acts,” she said. Unlike other circus shows, she said the “beautiful intimate environment” in which the show will be staged gives the audience an opportunity to see the “incredible physical performers up close”. As part of the show, Tollemache and her husband, circus artist David Ladderman, will alternate roles hosting the show. She said cabaret performances give her and Ladderman the chance to let loose. “Obviously, a lot of our international touring shows are a lot more scripted and we do more or less the same show,” she said.

Twins give an acrobatics display and five-time Guinness World Record holder for contortion, Skye Broberg, will have a Christmas-themed act involving light. Although she has pulled several artists from outside of the city to take part in the show, Tollemache said a lot of people do not realise Christchurch punches well above its weight when it comes to independent performance and circus. “The reason people don’t realise that is because most of us are busy touring around New Zealand and the rest of the world,” she said. famous duo acts was Victorian carnival sideshow, Mr & Mrs Alexander, which toured the country last year.

Emerging artists put on original show „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding SHORT SHARP original plays created by some of the city’s emerging performers will be showcased this week. The Court Youth Company will present a variety of short plays for their end-of-year performance, Trios. For the past two months, the company has been working with directors Holly Chappell-Eason and Tom Eason who have been guiding them on how to create their own work. The young performers were asked to write down key words about what they want to do on stage. Court Theatre promotions manager Jeff Clark said it valuable in helping the young artists uncover their own performance skills.

PICTURESQUE: Vancouver is a city of diverse culture.

Taste sensations in Vancouver’s ’hoods „„ By Mike Yardley AS YOU’D expect from an A-list foodie city, Vancouver’s celebrated offerings are constantly evolving, as trends come and go in the hot ‘hoods. I delved into the city’s palette and here’s a selection of tried and trusted options destined to leave you with a memorable flavour of buzzing Vancouver. The city’s oldest ’hood, with its cobblestoned atmosphere, is a great starting point. Gastown takes its name from the first saloon owner, Gassy Jack Deighton, who started trading in 1867. You’ll probably recognise the Gastown streetscape from 50 Shades of Grey, which was filmed here. Fancy some creative mixology? Head to Chill Winston for the evocatively named Ritual Sacrifice cocktail, comprising Victoria Gin, Aperol, grapefruit tea, lemon and peach bitters. Another top Gastown destination is L’Abattoir, where French influenced Pacific north-west cuisine, forms the

basis of its menu. It’s a great spot to get your fill of fresh halibut, a slightly sweettasting fish, and the delicate

flavour of British Colombia’s spot prawns. Tucked in Gastown’s Dominion Building, Nuba captures the

classic Lebanese style of sharing with a menu of innovative dishes. In a city famed for its serious surfeit of Starbucks joints (over

100 at last count), re-caffeinate at Milano Gastown, a local trailblazer as a roaster and coffeemaker, with an espresso tasting bar, to boot. Prado Cafe is another stellar stop, home to four-time Canadian Barista Champion and first ever winner of World Latte Art Championship. Sam Piccolo embodies the passion for great coffee, continually using his award-winning skills to create the perfect cup of coffee. Another revitalised historic district trending with the “scenesters,” is the old warehouse haunt of Yaletown, where an energised patio-culture permeates its heritage brick walkways. Foodie hot-spots include Wild Tale Coastal Grill, for sustainable seafood like the local oysters. Homer Street Café is a cracker. Its rotisserie chicken is one of the nest things you could shove in your mouth, but the people who do it here somehow look chic and French. •Turn to page 52

Getaway to the

STREETSCAPE: (Far left) – Water St, Gastown, Vancouver. Cafes and bars are spread through a cobbled landscape. (Left) – Granville Island Public Market has many dining options mixed in among the food stalls.

Celebrated offerings in food city •From page 51 Just south of the city centre, the crown jewel of the city’s culinary scene is Granville Island Public Market. Technically the island is actually a sandbar, but semantics aside, the public market is the second most visited visitor attraction in Canada, after Niagara Falls. The food hall proper is where you’ll be rubbing shoulders with many top restaurant chefs, as they source ingredients for the evening menu. With over 150 permanent retailers and vendor stalls, the abundance of temptation is a formidable test of impulse control. You can lustily graze your way on fragrant pastries and artisan cheese as you go, although for more substantial dining, the international food court, at the heart of the market, is where to head. My recommended stops include Benton Brother’s Fine Cheese, Oyama Sausage Company and Edible Canada. Their flavoured bacon salt is a tastesensation, in its own right. Whatever you do, do not miss sampling a honey-dipped donut from Lee’s Donuts.

TRADITIONAl: L’Abattoir, where French influenced Pacific north-west cuisine, forms the basis of its menu.

Beyond the public market, the wide array of designer stores and art studios is always enthralling. Another area signature is Granville Island Brewing. Pop in for a very agreeable Maple Cream Ale. It is ultra-hip and seriously groovy, fresh from a tip-to-toe makeover. The Burrard has transformed what was a 1950s

downtown motel into a chic and playful boutique hotel with an unmistakably retrocool vibe. Accommodation is compact but undeniably comfy, loaded with creature comforts and contemporary flourishes, including luxurious bedding, flatscreen TVs, free Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations and Nespresso coffee machines.

The 72 guestrooms open out onto a lush interior garden courtyard, thronging with palms. It’s a stunning little oasis for urban lounging. The hotel also treats guests to free-use cruiser bikers and complimentary North American phone calls. Staff are fabulously informed and fizzing at the bung with insider tips on where to go, whether it be a fun-filled bike route or post-pedal cocktail. It’s always a thrill to discover a stand-out hotel with a seriously distinctive personality. The Burrard is a class-act. Wherever you choose to stay in Vancouver, lock in your accommodation through Hotels. com, which was fast, efficient and packed with great deals. Hotels.com Rewards gives you one free night after 10 nights booked– which you can bank for future holidays. Rewards members and mobile app users also enjoy exclusive access to Secret Prices. I found the Hotels.com mobile app to be a simple, fast and secure way to book your perfect hotel, on the go. FAST FACTS: •Air New Zealand is increasing capacity on its Vancouver route. The airline will kick the increases off by moving from seven to eight weekly services during the first half of January, making it easier than ever for Kiwis to escape to the snow, with increased services during the shoulder periods too. With well-timed overnight flight departures, I managed to sleep my way across most of the Pacific.

Subaru Levorg built to performance car values „„ By Ross Kiddie I FIND it interesting that Subaru New Zealand categorise its Levorg as a performance car, stacking it up alongside the Impreza WRX and STi. I guess it does have certain similarities to those two cars, for one it is built on much the same platform and it is one of few models left in the Subaru range which is turbocharged. However, the Levorg is a station wagon, which by my way of thinking, its primary function is to do all those useful things for which I love the concept. I’m quite smitten with the Levorg, it’s a dynamic, practical wagon and one which is quite lively when performance is requested. For the second time, I experienced the Levorg in a racetrack environment, the first was a year or two back at Highlands Motorsport Park near Cromwell at the media launch for the car here, the second time was just recently at Hampton Downs in the Waikato when a mid-life upgrade and facelift filtered through the range, the event also included a few hot laps in the Imprezabased performance models mentioned in my introduction. Those two models will feature in future reviews. This evaluation focuses solely on Levorg, and it is a car which covers many bases. For one, the wagon section boasts a handy load space, while the seating area provides comfortable transport for five adults. The Levorg is not as big as the old Legacy wagon, but it is a useful alternative for those who related to everything the Legacy wagon stood for. The Levorg utilises the 2-litre version of Subaru’s quad-camshaft, horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine. As mentioned, it is turbocharged with a 197kW consequence. It also pumps out a healthy 350Nm of torque, both outputs realised relatively low in the rev band at 5600rpm and 2400rpm respectively. Like all modern engines, the Levorg’s unit is also calibrated so that fuel efficiency hasn’t been overly jeopardised. Sure, if you like to squeeze the power of the turbocharger in sport

SUBARU LEVORG: Turbocharged station wagon.

or sport sharp performance mode, economy isn’t going to be fantastic, but Subaru have leaned out the engines right across the range and the Levorg is rated with a 8.7-litre per 100km (33mpg) combined cycle output. That correlates well with the 10l/100km (28mpg) figure showing on-board the evaluation car. • Price – Subaru Levorg, $57,990 • Dimensions – Length, 4690mm; width, 1780mm; height, 1490mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive, 1998cc, 197kW, 350Nm, continuously variable automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 6.6sec • Fuel usage – 8.7l/100km

In terms of acceleration, the Levorg can cut out a standstill to 100km/h time of 6.6sec and will make 120km/h from 80km/h in 4sec, hence the reason why it carries a performance car label. It is quick, and the turbo boost is quite delightful. Given I have had a lot of track time in the Levorg, I felt I didn’t need to put it through too much pace on my home turf. However, I did cover much of my inland evaluation route and came away quite excited. That’s no surprise, the last model captured my attention, the newcomer with its improvements, leaves quite an impression. As with all Subarus sold new in New Zealand, the Levorg gets the four-wheeldrive system which has become legendary from the brand. It’s not so much a mechanism that you use to travel off-road as such, sure it will take you

places off the seal, but it also provides unsurpassed sealed road grip, along with a feel from the structure of the vehicle which is quite defining. I’m talking about the information that is transferred from the suspension and the associated drive, it is quite evident especially when the car is forced out of a corner under acceleration, drive to the rear is accentuated. On that subject the Levorg is available as an automatic only and the continuously variable system works quite unlike what we have come to expect from CVT in the past. There are paddle shifters which work on an eight-step system and it feels quite orthodox, discernable changes and the ratio structure working on tandem with the drive mode chosen. New on the Levorg for 2018 is a cosmetic enhancement both inside and out and an electronic upgrade mostly surrounding the Eyesight safety technology. There are greater collision avoidance electronics and a rear view camera-based system which views through the interior mirror. There is also an automatic hold facility on the brake at standstill. Those features sit on top of what could be considered premium car attributes in the first instance. The Levorg at $57,990 does carry a lot of kit and should be considered value given that it delivers in so many ways. The Levorg is an exciting car and one which fits well into the line-up and offers something for all drivers and for all speeds. It is certainly a car which defies today’s buying trend towards sport utility vehicles.

Schoolmates now centres of attention „„ By Andrew King THREE international centres, one school: This is the story of the 2004 Shirley Boys’ High first XV. Phil Burleigh (Scotland), Ryan Crotty (All Blacks) and Kieron Fonotia (Manu Samoa) are all plying their trade on the international scene. However, they were all a part of the 2004 Shirley Boys’ High first XV. They also played through the grades at New Brighton. But at Shirley Boys’ High, they only played seven games between them in the midfield – all in the 2004 season. Burleigh spent most of his time in 2004 as the first choice halfback, Crotty ran the backline at No 10 before finishing the last four games of the season at second-five. Fonotia split his time between right wing and fullback. They now all don the No 13 jersey. Shirley assistant coach in 2004, Mike Skinner, said they were all good boys who spent a lot of time on the back field “sunning themselves”. He said Crotty could win games when the rest of the side

wasn’t playing well, Burleigh was the glue who didn’t make a mistake, and Fonatia was a natural sportsman who had a massive step. “They had a good year, which built into a very good year for 2005 where we almost went all the way,” he said.

Crotty, known back then as Goofy, has made the centre position his own in the All Blacks while Fonotia, Fonzy, made his debut against the men in black earlier in the year. Fonotia has played seven tests for Manu Samoa since then. Burleigh, known as Burls to

his Shirley teammates, played his first game for Scotland against Australia last month in what was a record-setting eight-try demolition in front of more than 67,000 at Murrayfield. There was genuine excitement from Burleigh’s father, Wayne, and Crotty’s father, Steve, who

used to flat together on Marine Pde, New Brighton, when there was a possibility Burleigh could have made his debut against Crotty and the All Blacks. However, Burleigh was not selected for the test. Setaimata Sa was the No 8 in the Shirley team in 2004. He has played both union and league and was part of the 2008 World Cupwinning Kiwis side. He’s also played five league tests for Samoa and one for the union side. He now plays league for the Mackay Cutters in Queensland. Fonotia has been playing for Welsh side, Ospreys, one of four professional union teams in the country which compete in the Pro14 and the European Rugby Champions Cup. In 2018, Fonotia will move to Scarlets, another Welsh club. Burleigh joined Edinburgh Rugby on a two-year deal in 2014 from the Highlanders and extended his contract in 2016 for another two years. His time playing in Scotland made him eligible for selection in the national side. However, he also has Scottish heritage with his greatgrandmother born in Aberdeen.

Veteran bowler bags Fourth title in rare double hat-trick five years on the „„ By Gordon Findlater SCOTT MASON might be in the twilight of a long cricket career, but it hasn’t stopped the 48-yearold from achieving a remarkable feat. The St Albans presidents grade captain took a rare double hattrick – four consecutive wickets – against Lancaster Park on Saturday. “It was pretty bloody special,” said Mason. His figures of five wickets for six runs off 4.2 overs helped St Albans dismiss Lancaster Park for just 64 at Ilam Fields on their way to a dominant eightwicket win. Mason is no stranger to hat-tricks – it was the fifth one of his career. However, it was the first time he had taken a double hat-trick. The first of Mason’s wickets came from a leading edge which was caught at mid-off by James Alabaster. The very next ball, Mason cannoned an in-swinging yorker into the middle and off stumps. He then completed his hat-trick with another in-swinging yorker to catch the batsmen lbw. What happened next will stay in Mason’s mind for a long time to come. “We’ve still got everyone in crowded around the bat and I’ve bowled a slightly shorter inswinger which the guy has gone backwards and pushed out

at it and bunted it straight to Jimmy at silly mid-off who took a great one-handed catch,” Mason said. He describes himself as a leftarm, medium pace, seam and swing bowler. “You can write down ‘fast’ if you like, but no one will believe you,” said Mason. The double hat-trick was the first by a St Albans player at all levels since White Ferns star Amy Satterthwaite took one nearly seven years ago. It was also only the third taken by a player from the club this millennium. Mason has taken 20 wickets this season, including two fivewicket-bags at an average of

7.05, with a strike rate of 11.90 and economy rate of 3.55. “This season has started off pretty well that’s for sure. I’m probably five wickets ahead of where I’d normally be at this time each year,” said Mason. “I normally aim for 40 and if I can get that I’m happy.” Mason brought up his 1000th wicket for St Albans in 2015 and is second on the club’s all-time wickettaking list with 1116 scalps. The current record is held by former club president and Canterbury Metropolitan Cricket life member Alan Jamieson, who has taken 1271 wickets for the club. Now in his 31st season with St Albans, Mason spent his earlier years at the club playing predominantly in the fourth and second grades. Over the last decade, he has experienced success with St Albans presidents, who currently sit second in the 11-team, 35-andover competition. “It’s the last chance for a lot of us to play any decent cricket. It’s very competitive but it’s played in the right spirit,” said Mason.

line for Pride

„„ By Gordon Findlater CANTERBURY United Pride are one game away from their fourth title in five years as they continue to dominate the national women’s football league. The Pride will take on Auckland in the league final on Sunday at English Park. The two teams only previous meeting saw the Pride walk away 1-0 winners at the same ground last month, courtesy of a 90th-minute winner from Britneylee Nicholson. However, the Pride are expecting a much stronger Auckland team to run onto the field at English Park. “They were missing a couple of key players (last month) so we know they’ll be an even tougher task on Sunday. We certainly can’t take them lightly,” said Pride captain Annalie Longo. The task won’t be any easier for the Pride with two of Football Ferns missing from the side – striker Aimee Phillips, and defender Meikayla Moore who is out of the country trialling with several clubs in Germany. “You’d love to have your best players available but we have a really good group of young girls who have stepped up throughout the season,” said Longo. The Pride secured their final

berth by finishing top of the league after the round-robin, while Auckland defeated Southern United 3-1 in the preliminary final at the weekend. It will be the fourth consecutive year the Pride have hosted the final. Their only slip-up in an otherwise perfect home final record was a thrilling 3-4 loss to Northern Football in 2015.

Old Boys’ heavy-hitter leads all scorers in metro cricket „„ By Andrew King OLD BOYS Collegians opening batsmen Tom Taylor continues to take the long handle to bowlers in the premier metro one-day competition, smashing 35 sixes in seven innings. The right-hander is the competition’s top scorer with 356 runs at an average of 50.86 and a strike rate of 124.24. East Christchurch Shirley’s Timothy Hampton-Matehe is second with 337 runs at an average of 48.14. Taylor’s opening partner, David Wakefield, is third with 309 runs at an average of 44.14. Taylor exploded in the opening round of the premier metro twoday competition in October when

he smashed five sixes in one over off Riccarton opening left-arm pace bowler, Jack Turner. Taylor has had some low scoring innings, notably getting out cheaply against St Albans when he was caught by Greg Dawson off the bowling of Bailen Thatcher for two. But it is the manner in which he has scored his runs that has impressed. His 16 against Lancaster Park came from four boundaries and his 19 against Riccarton included two fours and a six. His most recent knock against Marist saw him score a blistering 124 off 79 balls, including six fours and nine sixes. Old Boys sits on top of the one-day ladder with five wins from seven matches. They will

play Riccarton in the semi-final on Sunday at Elmwood Park. Burnside West Christchurch University will meet St Albans in the other semi-final. Taylor’s one-day innings: •East Christchurch Shirley, October 28, 49 off 34, five fours, three sixes. •Lancaster Park, November 4, 16 off 17, four fours. •Sydenham, November 5, 78 off 61, seven fours, five sixes. •Riccarton, November 11, 19 off 22, two fours, one six. •Burnside, November 18, 68 off 63, six fours, four sixes. •St Albans, November 25, 2 off 6. •Marist, December 2, 124 HITTER: Tom Taylor has smashed 35 sixes in seven innings. off 79, six fours, nine sixes.

What’s my house really worth? When you’ve lived in a property for a while it can be hard to be rational about its worth. How can you put a price on the spot where you’ve built so many memories with family and friends? Someone will surely recognise the hours you spent sanding back the windows or digging out the agapanthus in the garden and reward you with a high price, won’t they? Unfortunately potential buyers may see things differently, especially in a slow housing market. There are several methods you can use to gauge the worth of your property. Remember that the rateable value or RV (formerly known as the government valuation, or GV) of your property doesn’t really provide any clues. These valuations are done by the local council to work out what share of rates a household should pay. They are only done every three years and don’t take any improvements into account – increasingly, properties that include an RV figure in the advertising will come with a disclaimer that it is not indicative of current market value. These days you can gather a lot of information for free thanks to websites like Trade Me and Homes.co.nz. Trade Me’s Property Insights has information on more than 1.5 million homes, including rateable value data, previous sale prices, when the property was built and what size it is. The site also provides an estimated value range, based on a melting pot of data from sales of comparable properties, listing details and user activity. Homes.co.nz operates similarly. Its estimate service is built on a complex set of valuation models, using around 30 million pieces of data bought from councils nationwide, plus sales values and a wide set of property features. Both sites recognise there are a number of factors at play, so they offer an estimated value range that can be quite broad. While both these sites are useful, they don’t show the full picture and should only be used as the starting point in determining value. They can’t take

the condition of your property into account and they may not recognise any improvements you might have made (though homes.co.nz does allow owners to ‘claim’ their property and edit information about it). Let’s say you own a large property in an area where there have been some big-ticket sales in the last year. Your property might have some serious structural issues and be in generally poor condition, yet the algorithms may claim that it is worth a lot more than any sensible buyer would pay for it because other houses in the neighbourhood have sold for high prices. The impact of this is two-fold. Firstly, the seller could anticipate a big pay-day that may never arrive; and secondly, some buyers may be put off making an offer because they think it’s out of range. There are a couple of ways to combat this. When you start working with a real estate agent to sell your property they must supply you with a current market appraisal or CMA. This is based on similar information to the online versions, but it also comes with the agent’s real-time, real-life knowledge of the area, what similar properties have sold for and the condition and particular characteristics of your own property (such as whether it has been repainted recently or it’s in a state of disrepair). The agent will have had the chance to walk through your property and identify its unique selling propositions, such as good sun, proximity to desirable schools and other features that buyers like. It’s important to note that you may get varying CMA ranges from different real estate agents as they may each take a divergent perspective on your property that you will then need to consider. Your other option is to pay a registered valuer to provide you with an independent valuation. This service comes at a cost (the price will vary, depending on the level of detail), but it will be more accurate. The Property Institute, which represents valuers, says a registered valuation can help sellers be a little more clinical about their property’s worth. Even with all the information you can gather, the true indication of your property’s value is what a willing buyer will pay for it at the given time that it’s on the market. A valuation, a price range or a figure reached by an algorithm is not cash in the bank. For independent advice on buying or selling property, check out www. reaa.govt.nz.
