Call for school review head to step down „„ By Gabrielle Stuart PRINCIPALS OF schools closed after the earthquakes are calling for Dame Karen Sewell to step aside as head of a review into what happened, saying she is not independent. They are backed by Canterbury Secondary Principals’ Association president Phil Holstein who said Dame Karen’s previous roles with the Ministry of Education could hurt the credibility of the review. “The person who heads a review gives credibility and viability to a report, so anything that can be seen as a conflict of interest should be avoided,” he said. Dame Karen is a former Ministry of Education chief executive, and served as adviser to then Minister of Education Hekia Parata in 2012, during the school closures. The review, which was announced this week, which will look at the Ministry of Education response to the earthquakes and other disasters, and how its future response could be improved. Neither Ms Kaye or Dame Karen responded to The Star. And yesterday Canterbury Primary Principals’ Association former president Jeanette Shearer revealed the association had specifically asked Ms Kaye in a letter last week to appoint someone independent to head the review. •Turn to page 3

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK YOU CAN always bank on Richie McCaw to step up to the plate when it counts. And he’s just made one 72-year-old very, very happy (see pages 1, 3). Helen Young has been more than a McCaw fan for a long time. Unfortunately, Helen is not well and her time is nearly up. So Richie’s message to Helen has made her very happy. Good on ya mate. Spare a thought for Hornby Panthers skipper James Baxendale (page 34). He should be leading his side out for the club league grand-final against Linwood on Sunday. But the floods put back the grand-final by a week, and Baxy had booked an overseas trip months ago thinking the season would be over. So when his team mates are battling it out with the Keas at Linfield Park, he’ll be in Croatia. Linfield Park? Yep, the league final is being played in union territory. Give the leaguies back AMI – sorry showgrounds. – Barry Clarke

Call for school review head to step down •From page 1 Ms Shearer said the association planned to approach Ms Kaye to ask why the request was ignored. She said someone independent should be appointed to replace Dame Karen. The review follows an apology from the Ministry of Education

in June over the way postearthquake school closures were handled, after an Ombudsman report criticised the process. Former principal of closed Manning Intermediate Richard Chambers said he respected Dame Karen, but she was not the right person to lead the review.

“The question is whether people would believe everything she said in the review, given that she ended up being part of the process,” he said. Tony Simpson, who was principal of closed Phillipstown School, said Dame Karen had done good things to help

Christchurch schools, but was also “a loyal employee of the minister.” “She was very supportive of us during the response to the earthquakes, but she was also part of the process which produced disastrous results for Canterbury,” he said.

In Brief SILENCE OVER ASSAULTS Witnesses to alleged assaults at a junior rugby game have refused to talk about what happened out of fear their children will not be picked for representative teams, police say. West Melton under14.5s coach Amanda Tomlinson has been charged with the assault of a young Lincoln player after a match between the two teams last month. She is set to appear before a community justice panel. Police are still investigating an earlier incident between the Lincoln player and a West Melton player. Senior Sergeant Peter Stills said the investigation was being hampered by witnesses refusing to talk. CAR SALES BAN FEEDBACK A plan to ban selling vehicles on the side of the road will go out for public consultation this month. The city council last week decided to get feedback on the proposed Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017. Under the bylaw, it wants to ban people from parking vehicles on a road or parking spot to offer it for sale unless it was being used for day-to-day travel. The main reason was because it distracted motorists. ONLINE COUNCIL VOTING Online voting at the next local body elections could be introduced if the city council gets its way. It has prepared a submission asking that legislation be changed so online voting could trialled in the 2019 elections. City councillors will finalise the submission at today’s meeting. CORRECTION Last week, The Star reported Atlas Quarter was being built in Sydenham. That was incorrect. The residential development is being built on Welles St, which is in the central city. The Government-led development will have a mixture of one and two-bedroom apartments, along with some three-bedroom terrace housing, with the first two stages to be completed and put on sale in October.

War of words over „„ By Gabrielle Stuart HOSPITALITY chiefs have slammed a project by health authorities that informs communities about bars or liquor stores opening in their area, calling it a waste of taxpayer money. But Canterbury medical officer of health Alistair Humphrey has fired back, accusing liquor businesses of “making profits from people’s misery”. The Canterbury District Health Board community and public health team has been sending letters to community groups warning them about any bar or liquor store licence applications Alistair that they consider Humphrey high-risk to the community. The letters detail how to make a submission on the application, and where to get free legal help to oppose it. Of the 16 “high-risk” licence applications they have put word out about over the past two years, one was declined, seven were withdrawn, five granted and three awaiting hearings. Hospitality NZ Canterbury president Peter Morrison said it was not the CDHB’s role to step in.

“I’m sure with the health problems we’ve got in the city, there are much more important things they should be worrying about and spending taxpayer money on,” he said. He compared it to a case in Wellington in June, where police knocked on doors and gave residents a guide to opposing a proposed liquor store, and were criticised for it. But Dr Humphrey said the letter did not tell residents what to say in a submission, but just gave them information about how to do it. He said alcohol had a profound effect of the health system, as Peter Morrison the CDHB spent an estimated $90 to $100 million per year on alcohol related harm, injuries and diseases. “If they want to argue that we are wasting money I would say, yes, we are wasting money: On fixing up people who have been the victims of alcohol consumption. They can get as fired up as they like, but they are making profits from people’s misery and we are funding the consequences of their alcohol sales,” he said.

alcohol initiative He said the letters were needed because there had been cases where residents missed the public notices. But Mr Morrison said people applying for alcohol licences were already required to run a newspaper notice and put the application in the window of their building. He said that should be enough. “If residents want to complain, they know how to complain,” Mr Morrison said. He said the CDHB’s funds would be better spent helping people to change their drinking behaviour, “not on trying to shut businesses down”. “People have got to take responsibility for their own actions. It’s not the bars or the bottle stores or the supermarkets, it’s people’s behaviour,” he said. Harewood resident Colin Fussell, who successfully campaigned to have an application for a new Trafford St liquor store turned down last month, said the letters were needed.

Political solution for children’s safety sign „„ By Julia Evans BUDDING politicians aren’t shy about jumping on the back of a good cause. And Christchurch Central Labour candidate Duncan Webb readily admits he’s no different. But, in this case, the former lawyer hopes to put the spotlight on the problem of children’s safety in St Albans. A sign which St Albans School parent Rachel Donaldson put on the fence of 85 Westminster St was ordered to be removed by the city council for “not complying with the District Plan.” The move

was initiated after a complaint about the sign was received. The sign reads: “St Albans children matter, slow down.” So Dr Webb saw a way to get around the city council’s hard line – he stapled his photo on to the sign and authorised it, making it a political hoarding and therefore not under city council jurisdiction. The city council would not comment because it was investigating the complaint. Dr Webb freely admits it’s a good piece of electioneering, but it was for a good cause too. “If people can see my face then

that’s all good for me too, but I’m happy to help out,” Dr Webb said. He told Mrs Donaldson that if city council staff come knocking again, she can send them his way. Mrs Donaldson said it’s a fitting solution for the “ridiculous” circumstances. “It’s poking fun at the rules, it’s just a farcical situation,” she said. But she is thrilled more attention is being brought to the wider issue of dangerous driving in the area. However, the photo will have to be taken down on September 22 before the following day’s election.

Police prepare for more Greenpeace water scheme protests „„ By Andrew King POLICE ARE planning how to counter further Greenpeace bids to stop a $200 million irrigation project in Canterbury. Last Wednesday, about 20 protesters from Greenpeace blocked work where the second stage of the Central Plains Water scheme is under construction near Hororata, saying more cows bring more pollution.

Police met with CPW yesterday about future protests and how they can be dealt with. Senior Sergeant Pete Stills told The Star he expected Pete Stills Greenpeace “to have another crack at some point”. “Greenpeace doesn’t tend to do a one-off,” he said.

Greenpeace campaigner Genevieve Toop said there would be more protests. “We have been really open about going back. We will bring more people and aim Genevieve to stay longer,” Toop she said. “I can’t tell you any details about numbers [of protesters],

a date or the location at this stage, but we will hit them in Canterbury somewhere at some time.” “They [police and CPW] have nothing to worry about, we are peaceful and non-violent. They have nothing to fear from us. We are just standing up for rivers,” she said. Work on the scheme started in April. There will be a 56km canal between the Rakaia and

Waimakariri rivers to irrigate the central Canterbury Plains. When completed it will irrigate about 60,000ha of farmland. The CPW scheme is one of three irrigation schemes in Canterbury, and part of eight nationwide. Miss Toop said any of the three in Canterbury could be targeted by them at any time.

Vicious attacker loses High Court appeal Bid to have sentence reduced fails „„ By Andrew King THE MAN who viciously attacked his estranged wife with a piece of wood while she slept with her youngest daughter beside her, has failed in a bid to have his jail sentence reduced. Lealofi Setu’s lawyer Jonathan Eaton, QC, argued in the High Court that the sentence starting point of 10 years was too high resulting in a “manifestly excessive” imprisonment term. Setu, 40, was jailed for five years in May for the attack on his estranged wife Jess Setu in their Bishopdale home in May 2016. He was convicted of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, contravening a protection order, and aggravated burglary. Mr Eaton told the High Court the relevant aggravating factors in the case, when compared to similar crimes, showed district court Judge Raoul Neave erred in his approach when setting a

starting point for sentencing. In his decision released on Monday, Justice Cameron Mander disagreed and said Judge Neave had acted within the guidelines for sentencing this type of crime and dismissed the appeal. He summed up by saying: “A 10-year starting point, therefore, while stern, does not fall outside the range available to the sentencing court. I do not

consider the starting point that was applied to have led to the ultimate sentence imposed on Mr Setu being manifestly excessive.” Constable Natalie Deuchrass who saw Ms Setu at Christchurch Hospital soon after the attack said she was amazed she was still alive. “One more hit and he would have killed her, I think,” she told The Star.

‘I am making domestic violence a topic to be discussed. We are always hearing about terrorism, what it’s doing to the world we live in. But we are living with terrorism in our own homes and communities, it’s called domestic violence.’ – Jess Setu

Ms Setu was unaware her ex-husband was appealing his sentence but said he is entitled to. “Will any sentence be long enough for what Setu has sentenced my daughters and I to live with? The courts have made their ruling, and I support the sentencing judge and the appeal decision,” she said. She said domestic violence

has to stop. She would be a voice of strength for other women who are in a similar situation. “I am standing tall for those who don’t have a voice. We are always hearing about terrorism, what it’s doing to the world we live in. But we are living with terrorism in our own homes and communities, it’s called domestic violence,” she said.

tip of the iceberg. He said about 80 per cent of abusers were family members, often an adult child, so the

person being abused often kept quiet about it to protect them. Cases were often reported by friends, neighbours or family members, but sometimes the first sign was when someone in his team was visiting someone elderly and noticed they had their heating switched off, or had barely any food in the house, he said. Ms Sheehan said her friend was initially very reluctant to talk to her about the abuse from the woman. “He was very lonely, and he didn’t want to lose his friend,” she said. It wasn’t until a physical conflict, when the woman turned up to his house with another person and they forced their way in, that he agreed to go to the police, she said. She said the story had a happy ending – the woman was charged by police, and the pensioner moved to a small retirement home where he was no longer isolated. But she said the man may not have talked to anyone about the abuse if she hadn’t noticed, especially as his family were not living in Christchurch.

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart THREE YEARS ago, Christchurch nurse Carla Sheehan noticed an elderly man she regularly visited was acting strangely. He had started becoming paranoid and agitated about things – money, his phone bill, and things missing from his home. He was becoming more stressed, and his health was getting worse. After several months, she discovered why – a woman the pensioner had befriended had been stealing his money, physically assaulting him and taking advantage of him. On Monday, Ms Sheehan started a new job on the Age Concern elder abuse team, working to help a rapidly growing number of people in similar situations. In the past year to June, there were 269 cases of elder abuse in Canterbury reported to the Age Concern, more than double about 110 reported three years ago. There was previously only one Age Concern elder abuse worker based in Christchurch, but from this month there are now three, as well as one in Timaru, and

elder abuse “It was stressful and he felt shame about it. He was highly, highly embarrassed he had been taken advantage of,” she said. Ms Sheehan’s background was in mental health nursing, but she said the case had inspired her to do more work with the elderly. “I really want to get in and highlight this. We need more

Recent cases: •This week, 22-year-old Ngahemo Wells was sentenced in Christchurch to two years in prison, after she stole $75,547 from a 77-year-old widow’s retirement savings. Wells told the woman she needed the money as a loan to pay for things like funeral expenses and surgery for friends and family members, but actually spent it on alcohol, clothing, concerts and flights. •In April, a blind 94-yearold man was convinced to sign ownership of his Christchurch home over to his son’s trust, after the son threatened to abandon him if he didn’t. The son, who was trained as a lawyer but was unemployed, had been living in his father’s home at the time and had already spent most of his father’s savings. •In November, Auckland woman Cindy Taylor was sentenced to 13 years in jail for manslaughter of her mother, who was found dead in her bed weighing just 29kg, covered in open sores and with 14 broken ribs.

awareness of these problems, and we need to treat our oldies better,” she said. She believed loneliness was one of the biggest problems behind the rise in abuse, as it left elderly people more vulnerable. She said that was something everyone could help to change. “We say it and say it again, but keep an eye out for your elderly neighbours. Check in and get to know them. Get a phone number for them, and a relative’s phone number so you can call someone if you’re worried about them,” she said. •If you are being abused or suspect a friend, neighbour or family member is being abused, you can get help from Age Concern Canterbury by phoning 366 0903 or through the elder abuse national helpline on 0800 326 6865.

News New initiative to deal with homeless

„„ By Bridget Rutherford A NEW initiative is being developed to see if it could help alleviate the city’s homeless population. City council staff are working on a Housing First proposal for the city. The Housing First initiative was rolled out in Auckland this year, and aims to address homelessness by working on the causes behind it. It gets people into homes first, and then supports them with any other issues they may be facing. The proposal would be ready to present to the Ministry of Social Development next month to see if it could work. Central Ward city councillor Deon Swiggs said he hoped the initiative could be adopted. “It puts the people in a home, and then there are wrap-around services to give them the support they need. “They need to be stable, and from that they can work out what their needs are.” The city council’s social and community development committee requested the proposal after receiving a briefing about how it has worked in Auckland.

Two big central plots on sale

TWO BIG parcels of bare land are on the market in the inner city for the first time in more than 30 years. Located at 54 and 72 Salisbury St, the total 4570 sq m block is in the heart of the Victoria Street Precinct and has the added attraction of being zoned for central city business and residential. “The combined sites are among the biggest to come to Courtney the market in the Doig Christchurch inner city post the earthquakes,” said Courtney Doig, of Colliers International, who is marketing the land for sale by auction on August 31. “They are part of the property interests of a deceased estate that included a rebuilt complex of residential units further along Salisbury St. These fetched $3,805,000 at auction earlier this year. “Since the earthquakes, there has been a lot of activity in vacant land sales within the four major city avenues as investors have sought to consolidate their holdings. Our records show that, since the start of 2015, there have been 61 commercial vacant

land sales, collectively valued at $115,238,000.” Ms Doig said the two varying zones of the Salisbury St sites will appeal to developers because this widened the potential uses of the land. “This opportunity provides scope for a large scale commercial and residential development in a highly sought after location. There is a large road frontage and good access to main arterial

routes in an established commercial precinct. “Both properties provide flexibility for future development with the multiple titles and varying zoning options. The total parcel has a northfacing aspect and is within walking distance of our newly establishing CBD.” The first site comprises 523 sq m of central city business zoned land and adjoins other com-

mercial developments, including the planned new Casino Hotel called The Peterborough. Christchurch Casino has partnered with an Australian property developer to build an $85 million, 200-room hotel, which will be built on the casino’s half hectare car parking site. The second is a significant 4047 sq m residential development site with circa 80m frontage to Salisbury St.

Sallies stalwart has no plans to retire 83-year-old still hitting the streets „„ By Bridget Rutherford PEOPLE KEEP asking Allan Cleave when he plans on retiring from The Salvation Army. But after 53 years, the 83-yearold isn’t keen just yet. “How do you spell retire?” Every second Friday, he spends two hours going around bars between Halswell and Addington in uniform collecting donations. Three days a week he collects at Halswell New World, and once every couple of months, he heads out to pubs in Selwyn. Mr Cleave has become an expert at collecting. He said his area does the best in Christchurch. “In all the years I’ve been doing it, I’ve never been attacked or abused. It’s just the way you do it,” he said. “My theory is you talk to everybody. If people don’t want to donate, they don’t have to.” But he said he once had a run in with an Epitaph Riders gang member while collecting at a Lincoln Rd pub. “I used to get on well with them, I used to give them a bit of cheek and they would give me cheek. But one time a chap followed me out and grabbed me by the collar. He said I almost started a fight. I just got in my car and left. That didn’t deter me,” he said. “They did make donations, they were a good crowd.” He also goes out and collects donations without his army hat, because many years ago it was stolen by a cheeky university student at Lincoln’s The Famous Grouse Hotel, he said. It was his wife Joyce who introduced him to the army through church. “I asked to take her out one night nearly 61-and-a-half years

MEMORIES: Mr Cleave handing out The War Cry magazine at The Red Hotel in 1987.

ago and she said, no, I have to go to church tomorrow.” They married a year later, and will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary in November. Mr Cleave started collecting shortly after he joined. He was only meant to be filling in for two weeks, but he enjoyed it too much. “I love meeting people, I love talking to them.” On an average night, he would get about $250 dollars. But nowadays people don’t tend to have as many coins. People tended to be more generous at Christmas, he said.

One time he was collecting near the Halswell New World Lotto stand when a man came over saying he had just won Lotto and gave a $100 note, Mr Cleave said. But he said it was hard to predict who would donate. Saturdays used to be the big collection nights. But that had changed to Fridays, he said. In spite of collecting at pubs, he never drank himself. But he did enjoy a Sarsaparilla, he said The Salvation Army community ministries Hornby director Major Kevin Waugh said they would not be able to do the work

they did without people like Mr Cleave. “What Allan does and what people give through Allan goes directly to changing lives, helping hundreds of people every year on this side of town.” The Cleaves have worked with Civil Defence and Victim Support through the army, and Mr Cleave becomes Father Christmas at local events and is a Lions Club member. They even started a Sunday School in their home. What started with 18 children grew to 85. Over the years, Mr Cleave has

worked in different roles within the army on top of his day job on the railways. But he loves all of them. In his spare time, he enjoys gardening, helping people and spending time with his family – he had four children, and 10 grandchildren. Sadly, the Cleaves lost a daughter to cancer and a granddaughter to a crash caused by a drunk driver. He’s won awards for his work, including the Caltex Unsung Hero award in 2000. But he said that’s not why he does it. He just wants to help.

Hiatt steps into the cauldron

It will be the battle of the new and the experienced in the Wigram electorate leading up to September’s general election. Bridget Rutherford reports IF YOU asked David Hiatt in high school whether he saw himself getting into politics, his answer would have been no. But when the National Party Wigram candidate moved back to Christchurch from a stint overseas and started a family, the idea started to rear its head. “I felt now was the time. Christchurch needs really strong representation.” The 40-year-old’s general election campaign is his first turn at politics. But it’s not the first time he has been involved in an election campaign. During the 2014 general election, he was National Ilam MP Gerry Brownlee’s campaign chairman after volunteering for National during other elections. “That was that tipping point.” He said Mr Brownlee was a good person to learn from. “Gerry gets things done. He’s done a job that few others, if any, could have done.” He has a family connection too. His father Adrian was Lorrie Pickering’s campaign chairman in his bid for the Rangiora electorate in 1972. But when Mr Pickering had to step aside due to ill-health, his dad stepped up, although he did not win. “Maybe it’s in my blood.” He is number 52 on National’s list, while his opposition, Labour Wigram MP Megan Woods, is number five. She has held the seat for the last six years. Before that, Jim Anderton held it from 1984-2011. In the 2014 general election, Dr Woods won the seat with a 3330 vote majority over National’s

GRASS ROOTS: National’s Wigram candidate David Hiatt has already knocked on 9000 doors since he began campaigning. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Megan Woods

Karl Varley. That had doubled from the 2011 election. Mr Hiatt concedes he is the underdog. “But the underdog can be a good position to be in.” Both will run against Green Party candidate Richard Wesley, the Conservative Party’s Chris Brosnan and John Ring, of the Democrats for Social Credit Party. Dr Woods said she had only met Mr Hiatt a few times. “I take any opponent seriously. It’s the third time I’ve run, and I’ve had three different opponents. I wish him all the best because I genuinely think it’s a big decision for anyone to put their head above the parapet. “Everyone has to start somewhere, and often it’s not unusual for people to start in seats that are seen as safe for the other side as a bit of a dry run for things down the track.” Mr Hiatt said his campaign was grass roots. He wanted to

meet people, and grow National’s presence. He had knocked on more than 9000 doors. “This is an opportunity for National to grow our party vote. “I’ve never been in any race trying to come second.” His campaign was focused on providing opportunities for young families, and supporting small businesses, which were the “backbone of the economy”. Mr Hiatt said in light of the Labour leadership change from Andrew Little to Jacinda Ardern, he was focusing on his own party’s campaign, because that is what they could control. He said Labour had nine years to get themselves organised, and National had “strong and stable leadership”. Meanwhile, the Greens have had a turbulent week, with coleader Metiria Turei resigning yesterday and two experienced MPs quitting earlier in the week. “It gives a clear direction to the voters who is organised, and

perhaps who is not organised,” he said. Mr Hiatt has a young family, with two sons aged seven and nine with his wife Nichola. “For me that’s the reason I’m doing this. I want to make sure they have strong opportunities. That’s really important to me.” Dr Woods’ main campaign points were the mental health “crisis,” a lack of affordable housing in the electorate and public transport planning for the growth in the south-west. “I think National is walking away from Christchurch before the job is done.” She said the Ministry of Health was treating the Canterbury District Health Board as “business as usual,” and seven years on from the February 22, 2011, earthquake, thousands of homes were still not fixed. “I’m number five in the Labour caucus, I’m at every conversation and shadow Cabinet discussions.”

But Mr Hiatt said Christchurch had strong advocacy within the Government, especially through Prime Minister Bill English. He hoped to build on that if elected. “We’re 100 per cent committed to Christchurch and the rebuild and regeneration.” Mr Hiatt grew up on a farm near North Canterbury’s Broomfield. But when his father died of bowel cancer when he was five, they leased the farm, and later moved into Christchurch. After attending Medbury School and Christ’s College, he spent a gap year in England coaching cricket and rugby before studying a Bachelor of Commerce and Management at Lincoln University. He and Nichola returned to Christchurch after a stint in Canada and set up tourism business Lookout Point and Canterbury Guiding Co, which he recently sold. He said it was through the tourism business he got to know the Wigram electorate well. In spite of running for the seat, he lives in Strowan, in the Ilam electorate, about 2km outside of the boundary. But he said he spent the majority of his time in the electorate. “It’s about what you do and what you deliver as opposed to where you live.” Dr Woods said a local MP had to be a representative of the community. “I’m confident I’ve worked really hard for the people of Wigram,” she said. “It’s not just about visiting the community like a day job. It’s about who you chat to when you go down and buy the milk.” Both Dr Woods and Mr Hiatt will continue to campaign right up until September 23, through street corner meetings, door knocking, mailbox drops, social media and hard work. Let the games begin.

Living Wage: Why I voted against it

What they’re saying on Rise Up Christchurch Angela Toomey – If that is the minimum wage then I support it. Do councillors worry about ratepayers when deciding their wage bracket? I seriously doubt it. Melanie Ryan – It’s disappointing this wasn’t extended to subsidiary companies of the council, where I’m sure workers earn a lot less that in the corporate office. Wellington City Council has led by example. Grace Ryan – Awesome. This can only be good for all – helping create pressure to lift the wage across the board. I look forward to seeing more government and private organisations following suit. Surprised how cheap it was to be honest, and the benefits are sure to be many times over. Deb Flanagan – Well done CCC let’s be honest the 770k cost is probably the total of two staff at the top. Remember Tony Marryatt he was on 350k 400k or more wasn’t he?

ve Remo mells om s o r h t ba m! a e t s and

City councillor Jamie Gough asks why city council staff should be paid more than others doing the same job elsewhere through the Living Wage Last week I voted against adopting the Living Wage (minimum $20.20 per hour) for city council staff. Its adoption has a direct cost to ratepayers of $775,000 – that’s the first year alone and excludes pay relatively figures. I was in the minority, as it was approved by a sizeable margin. I’m not a heartless capitalist – far from it – being in this role means I forego the greater remuneration, anonymity and work-life balance of the private sector. I’ve also donated the entirety of my directors fees to charity over a number of years. I don’t seek praise or a medal, I do so willingly because I believe I bring a commercial skill-set that adds value to the governance of the city that I love and call home. City council is a monopoly. You can’t pay your rates elsewhere because you think your current mob couldn’t be trusted to run a bath, let alone the

finances of a city. It’s because of this that I work to ensure each hard-earned ratepayer dollar goes as far as it can and that the city council operates as effectively and efficiently as possible. The Living Wage is calculated on the assumption that it helps support two adults with two children; a pay rate struck on assumed demographics. Most city council staff who will now be paid more don’t even fall into this demographic – 67 per cent are part-time staff in their teens or 20s. It begs the question why should someone be paid more because they work for the city council over someone doing

the same job elsewhere, like the hospital or a private company? And why should that very person earning less at the hospital or private company now be forced to top-up the pay of those doing the same job at the city council? The real kicker is that this decision was made without even knowing the true cost from the inevitable bow wave of pay relativity. For every 18-year-old part-timer employed who goes from $16 per hour to $20.20, a team leader who was paid $21 will now understandably demand a relative increase. And when they go to $25, those on $25 go to $29, and $29 to $33, and so on. I’d suggest the initial

$775,000 cost to the ratepayer will pale by comparison. I support closing the gaps between the haves and havenots and from an employment perspective, I’d favour smaller percentage increases at the upper-end and greater dollar increases at the lower-end. Couple that with training and upskilling so lower income earners can genuinely command greater salaries and you have a strategy that is both sustainable and rates neutral. So is spending above market rates for social reasons commendable? Sure, if it’s your own business but not when it’s the ratepayers.

Leap forward for rebuild

Pay equity a priority

ONE WEEK from now Parliament will sit for the last time before Election 2017. For me, this means less time in Wellington and more time in Christchurch. I’m incredibly lucky to have an electorate and ministerial portfolio that are so closely intertwined. As a one-eyed Cantabrian, I relish the opportunity to focus on the issues that really matter to our city and our region. When I’m out and about at events or knocking on doors, people tell me they want their children or grandchildren to get a good education, they want quality healthcare and they want to feel safe in their homes. THe Government is, of course, focused on these issues at a national as well as regional level, but in Christchurch we have an added layer or complicating factor — the quakes. We’ve spent more than $14.3 billion on the rebuild and regeneration so far and that’s forecast to increase $17.3 billion by 2021. THe $1.1 billion Christchurch Schools Rebuild programme took a big leap forward this week as

I’VE KNOCKED a lot of doors in the last few weeks and it’s been interesting what issues have been cropping up on the doorstep. I’ve chatted with a number of women recently who have benefited from the pay settlement for care workers that came into force on July 1. Those women have told me that the extra money in their pay packets is making balancing the family budget a much easier task. But they also know that their win was a victory in the battle and not the war. In April this year the Government entered into a $2 billion-plus negotiated equal pay settlement with unions for care and support workers. This settlement ended years of the Government fighting the women and their unions in the courts to prevent the settlement. Kristine Bartlett, the woman who fronted the claim, became a modern-day hero. It was especially upsetting sitting in Parliament this Tuesday night listening to Government MPs speak on a

Nicky Wagner construction got under way at Wigram Primary and Addington School. The programme is a huge undertaking, involving 115 schools throughout greater Christchurch. THe Government recently put forward a strong offer to support the reinstatement of Christ Church Cathedral. The Anglican diocese is due to meet early next month to decide the Cathedral’s fate and I eagerly await its decision. Also, the $300 million Justice and Emergency Precinct opens in the next few weeks, bringing hundreds of workers back to the central city. THere’s a lot going on and there’s even more to come. Prime Minister Bill English is in town today to attend a number of events. I look forward to showing off our progress and discussing next steps. •The Justice Precinct has been beset with delays and proposed completion dates had been set for late 2016 and January this year. •Nicky Wagner is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

law that would make further cases like Kristine Bartlett’s impossible. Pay equity means that work that has been seen as traditionally women’s work, and therefore low paid, is compared to similar maledominated jobs and those pay rates.

A settlement is then reached to pay the two workforces a comparable wage. The new law puts too many barriers in the way of other groups of women achieving pay equity in the way care workers have. There are support workers in schools and social workers who have already lodged claims but under the National Government’s new law they’re unlikely to achieve the same win as the care workers. It’s not just women who I meet who think this is unfair and unacceptable in 2017. I know that the men I speak to want to see their wives, sisters, mothers and daughters paid fairly for the work they do. This isn’t much to ask. Jacinda Ardern has made it clear that pay equity for women will be a priority for the sixth Labour Government.

After 10 years of living happily in Pleasant Point in a large home, I decided it was time to cut down on both house and garden size to have more time for socialising. Once I saw the wonderful view from the villa I was sold on Elloughton Village. Plus of course the great help and advice I received from Jesse, the Site Manager. I spent most of my life as a busy farmer’s wife, but managed to squeeze in time for many years of outdoor bowls which I am still playing. I’m greatly enjoying my lovely new home with amazing views of my beloved mountains and farmlands, and getting to know all of the residents of Elloughton Village.

Viewpoint

Crusaders success puts spotlight on the city AT ABOUT 11pm on Monday, Sam Whitelock led his team through customs and into the reception hall of Christchurch Airport. And what a reception they received. Hundreds of fans – young and old – turned up to greet this champion team, the first to win the Super Rugby title since the earthquakes. What a spectacular season, capped off in the early hours of Sunday morning with the Super Rugby title. It was against all odds that Sam Whitelock and the team took to the field – Ellis Park stadium – surrounded by more than 60,000 fans rooting for the other team and a handful on their side. But what we know

Lianne Dalziel is that their home crowd was with them in spirit. And they knew that. Their win was against the odds. So how did they do that? They had the magic of a team ethos and a razor sharp coach who has been part of winning three titles as a player and now as a coach. And he does a mean breakdance as well. The team ethos is on the Crusaders website and it is

inspirational. “An understated ruthless pursuit of excellence. Leaving nothing to chance, by attention to detail, courage under fire, innovation and risk taking, all in red and black!” We had a civic reception for them on Tuesday afternoon. I know many fans wanted a fullblown parade, but we had a short window before those Crusaders who are part of the All Blacks squad had to leave for camp on

Wednesday, and they wanted it after school so the school kids could come. It was great. From a financial point of view, there is a cost in holding such an event. What has frustrated me the most is the cost of closing streets for a short period of time and providing barriers. I want to explore how we could minimise that. That being said, I think it is vital that we celebrate success. Whether it’s sporting achievements or outstanding service, it is good for us to come together and bask in the reflected glory of those who go the extra mile.  And there are benefits as well, beyond the community coming together to celebrate. The

media coverage (including social media) puts a positive spotlight on the city. Finally, the images of Ellis Park stadium have reminded us of the exhilaration that comes from tens of thousands of people gathering to experience an occasion like this. We need a multi-use arena and we need to have confirmed funding to build it. We will receive a report by the end of this month, which should give us a way forward. I, for one, can’t wait. •If you want to ask Ms Dalziel a question, email mayor@ccc.govt.nz. Put Reader’s Question in the subject line.

DETERMINATION: West Melton teen Maddie Collins needs a kidney transplant and is hoping to raise $700,000 for an operation in the United States. PHOTO: SOPHIE MCMILLAN

We asked people what they think of the arches at the intersection of Memorial Ave and Russley Rd Sandy McClelland – This is very impressive, just like Christchurch city will be. Sheree Hayward – They look fantastic. Ginny Vuleta – Waste of money. Could have been spent elsewhere. Pam Jones – Waste of money when housing is still an issue! Cath Milio – Fix the east side first. Joanne Banham – They look ridiculous.

Would you pay $10,000 for a dinner with Prime Minister Bill English, or with Winston Peters? Two Cantabrians did last week, for a good cause – to help teenager Maddie Collins get a life-saving kidney transplant in the United States Brian Tones – I wouldn’t pay $10,000 to dine with anyone. Joanne McMaster – I think a lot of you have missed the point. Chesters Plumbing purchased this knowing that all the money from this auction would go directly to Maddie. What they have done is absolutely amazing.

I applaud what they have done to help save Maddie’s life. This is an extremely generous donation and we need more Chesters in the world. Heather Bevan – I have dined in the same restaurant with Bill English and that is enough. Like Mr Peters, but not sure that I would spend $10,000, but I must say it went to a good cause. As for that woman who made the $1.5m fake donation, you are a cruel vindictive woman, and you got what you wanted – your name in the papers, but for the wrong reasons. Good luck to this lovely young girl and her family, I hope you get the treatment you need. Jo Marshall – Winston, but

he would have to pay. Not sure I could eat that much so would like to invite some struggling or homeless people to share. Mana Williams Eade – Neither, but I would hang out with Jacinda Ardern if the money went to charity. Kris Robinson – Neither. I’d have a feed with Metiria Turei MP though. Amen. Cath Milio – That’s a booby prize. Great that it’s raising money to save this girl’s life, but limited appeal really. Jennifer Fischer Shears – Winston Peters but he would

have to pay or settle for a muffin and coffee. Viv Beazley – That would help feed a lot of homeless, families struggling, breakfast in schools. Gus Hollis – If I had the money I would give it without having to eat with either one of them. Krysie Harding-Browne – Why not have them donate $5000 each, save the girl’s life, and let them dine together. If I had the money, Id just give it to the wee lady, bugger the dinner. Wayne Evans – If I had it I would give it to the girl for her health and maybe I’d invite him to my next barbecue. Suzie Edmonds – I have dined with Winston for free once. But he dines on you and me for free 24/7. Russell Gray – Jacinda Ardern would be a better dining date, but not $10,000 even for her.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... BAKED PEARS WITH VANILLA AND BAY LEAF SYRUP Ingredients 4 Pears, packham 4 sheets Puff pastry 2 Tbsp Milk 1 Egg Syrup 1 Vanilla bean 2 Bay leaves ¾ cup Caster sugar ½ cup White wine ½ cup Water 1 Tbsp to serve Cream Directions Preheat the oven to 180 deg C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Peel the pears, leaving on the stalks, then slice a sliver off the bottom of each so they sit flat. Lay one sheet of pastry on a lightly floured bench. Sit a pear in the centre and bring the pastry up around the pear. Trim the excess, then seal to ensure the pear is completely enclosed. Use the excess to make leaf shapes and press onto the

pastry. Whisk the egg and milk together then brush all over the pears. Bake for approximately 25min or until golden. Meanwhile, make the syrup by putting all the ingredients into a saucepan and then bring to a boil. Stir then let it reduce – this should take approximately 20min. Serve the pears hot with the syrup poured over and softly whipped cream on the side. VENISON STEAKS WITH KUMARA AND PARSNIP BAKE

Ingredients 50g Butter 500g Orange kumara, peeled 500g Parsnips, peeled 2 cloves Garlic, cut into slivers 1 Tbsp Fresh thyme 1 cup Chicken stock, or vegetable stock, use more if needed 4 Venison, steaks 6 stems Silverbeet, roughly chopped 1 Tbsp to serve Fruit chutney Directions Heat the oven to 190 deg C.

Cut kumara and parsnip into 3mm thick slices (a mandolin is useful here). Layer kumara and parsnip slices with the garlic, thyme and remaining butter into the baking dish finishing with kumara slices. Carefully pour in the stock and season. Cover with baking paper and foil, place in the oven and bake for 25min. Remove paper and foil and bake for a further 25min until kumara and parsnip are tender. Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Rub venison steaks with olive oil and season

with freshly ground black pepper. Place in the hot pan and pan-fry for 6min, turning once for medium-rare venison. Transfer to a warmed plate, cover loosely with foil then a clean tea towel and leave to rest for 5min. Meanwhile, steam silverbeet until tender, or boil in a little lightly salted water. Cut kumara and parsnip bake into squares and place one on each of four warmed dinner plates. Divide silverbeet between plates and top with a venison steak. Finish with a good dollop of chutney.

What’s new in the world of roses ROSE LOVERS always are spoilt for choice when it comes to new roses to grow in their gardens. This year is no exception with a bumper selection of new roses from which to choose although it always pays to order any new varieties that take your fancy as they often sell out quickly. Rose breeders both here in New Zealand and around the world are selecting more and more for disease tolerance. However, this doesn’t mean, that the roses will remain totally disease free – put any plant under stress and it will get disease more than a plant that is adequately fed,

watered and pruned. So, you still need to look after them to some degree. Rose breeders are also selecting more for bloom number and speed of repeat flowering. After all, it’s for the flowers that we grow roses in our gardens. Scent is also becoming more important, although it is difficult to breed for scent as even if you cross two highly fragrant roses, there is no guarantee the resulting offspring will have any scent at all. SIX TOP TIPS FOR NEW SEASON’S ROSES •  Order your roses in advance to avoid disappointment. •  Select plants with at least three strong canes and no signs of damage to them. Look out for

Shangri-La A medium to tall floribunda with clusters of shell-pink blooms. Glossy green foliage compliments the blooms well. A very healthy variety. Certificate of Merit, NZRS Trials 2015.

Grand Prix Special Named to celebrate excellence in Dressage New Zealand, the deep blood-red blooms have fluted petals and age to almost black. A compact rounded plant to 1m.

Memories of You A shrub rose with blooms of salmon-pink, apricot and lemon tones with a lovely scent. Tall growing with good repeat of blooms throughout summer.

William McCarthy A free-flowering variety with masses of silvery-pink blooms making for a great display with its compact, rounded habit. A very healthy variety.

Scent by an Angel A stunning variety with deep-magenta blooms with a huge fragrance. Always in bloom, this tall plant makes a great display.

Bright Times A patio climber ideal for smaller spaces. Scarletred patio-sized blooms smother the plant, which has light-green foliage.

Chance of Peace A hybrid tea with blooms of soft yellow with a tinge of pink on the outer petals, lightly scented. Grows to 1m with rich green foliage.

Ziggy A blend of burgundy, gold and white blooms that are produced in clusters. Something different for your garden. Grows to 1m.

„„ By Hayden Foulds

wrinkled canes as this is a sign the rose has dried out at some stage. •  Keep your labels and receipts in case your plants don’t grow and you need to return them for a replacement or refund. •  New season’s rose plants will have only been trimmed, not pruned, to make them easier to transport. They only need a light prune in their first year, to remove any diseased or damaged wood. •  Don’t let your newly planted roses dry out. In spite of being winter, it can happen if there are a few dry days or some frosts, which can dehydrate plants as well. •  If buying standard roses, invest in a good strong stake and put this in place at the time of planting your new roses.

Christchurch Garden Centre Open daily 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

478 Marshland Road, Marshland Telephone : 03 385 9008

Hot Topic The frilly blooms of orange age to apricot and have a fruity fragrance. Medium, bushy growing plant with dark green foliage. Very healthy. Certificate of Merit, NZRS Trials 2015.

Tahlia A floribunda with large blooms of deep rosepink with a creamy centre and yellow reverse to the petals. Moderately scented.

Theatre/Arts

Man behind an iconic women’s story „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding GREGORY COOPER was a bit nervous when he was first asked to direct a show purely about the bond between six women. Directing The Court Theatre’s production Steel Magnolias meant the Lyttelton resident was the only male in the rehearsal room with six female actors, a stage manager, and a costume and wig designer. Set in a Louisiana beauty salon and Gregory based around how a Cooper close group of women cope when one of their own dies, the thought had crossed his mind – should a woman be directing this show? But Cooper, 43, had a hope that, by being slightly outside the world of hairspray, make-up and gossip, he would be able to have an objective view on the 80s-themed show. “Perhaps things maybe women take for granted . . . in the way they react, talk to each other and support each other, I may go oh my God, that is really amazing because it is quite difference from my experience as a man,” he said.

BEAUTY: The cast of The Court Theatre’s production Steel Magnolias.

The original story was written by Robert Harling as a way of coping with his sister’s death. The characters in the show are modelled on women Harling grew up with in his community. Cooper said the actors and everyone else involved in the show were generous, kind and gentle to him. Never being one to rule out writing or working on a show because it did not directly relate

to him, Cooper co-wrote the smash-hit rock opera musical That Bloody Woman with Luke Di Somma. “We did get a bit of oh my God what are two guys doing writing a show about Kate Sheppard and the suffrage movement?” he said. But Cooper said he and Di Somma just wanted to write a good show about an amazing story and woman. That Bloody Woman took five years to write.

“The main problem was as two male writers, we were really pussyfooting around the character of Kate Sheppard . . . as a result, her character was so boring (and) didn’t have any life. She wasn’t funny,” he said. But when Cooper’s partner Sarah suggested Sheppard needed to be a bit more like American singer Bette Midler, he realised the show needed to be more like a concert rather than a conventional play with songs. That Bloody Woman was a huge hit and debuted at the Christchurch Arts Festival in 2015. It was Cooper’s favourite show that he has written. Cooper began his career at The Court Theatre in 1993 and returned this year after living in Auckland and Melbourne. As for his next project, Cooper is looking to write a play inspired by the stray Soviet dog Laika, who died after becoming one of the first animals to be sent to outer space. He wouldn’t talk about the play too much as it was still in the early stages and was likely to change. •Steel Magnolias runs until September 1. To book tickets, go to https:// courttheatre.org.nz/

Travel

Five-star way to walk the Hollyford „„ By Mike Yardley AWAKENING FROM a fulfilling sleep following my first day walking the Hollyford Track, Pyke Lodge was humming with excitement as a mighty giant was flashing its face. Typically shrouded in cloud and mist, the highest peak in Fiordland National Park, Totuku, was fully unmasked, strutting its sky-piercing grandeur with the fearless pride of a warrior. This glorious mountain takes its name from the old Maori chief who the early Europeans encountered. Day two on the guided walk started with a gentle stroll through the podocarp rainforest to Lake Alabaster. The rainforest provided a continuous font of insights, as our guide Justin pointed out some choice specimens including kahikatea, which ingloriously were felled to make butter boxes and clothes pegs. The prized sightings were the rimu, gigantic gods of the forest, some 1200 years old. As a group exercise, we discovered that it took 13 people to hug the full circumference of its trunk. I also learnt that 63 species live off the rimu tree, including the ubiquitous rata vine, which clings tenaciously to its trunk. Also reliant on this forest giant is our highly endangered kakapo. The rimu seedling is their primary source of food. Then there are the magnificent tree ferns which act like umbrellas in the rainforest, including the mamaku – the world’s biggest tree

RELAXING: Time to put the feet up and rest with a beverage at Martins Bay Lodge.

fern growing 25m in height. Wreathed in fast dissolving whiskers of morning mist, Lake Alabaster greeted us like a freshly polished mirror, its reflective quality is superlative. Next up, an intimate encounter with the longest swing-bridge in Fiordland, a staggering steel and wire construction strung across the pristine waters of Pyke River. On the far side of the bridge, we noticed the sign for the Demon Trail, a gut-busting 20km hilly trail that free-roaming trampers have to contend with to reach Martins Bay. Mercifully, our guided experience had a far more pleasurable traverse in-store, with a jet boat ride down the rapids of the Hollyford River to Lake McKerrow. The interplay of alpine, rainforest and watery vistas were seraphic.

STAGGERING: Fiordland’s longest swing bridge across the Pyke River.

Our next port of call was the lakeside site of the ill-fated settlement of Jamestown, where pioneer settlers in the 1870s struggled, toiled and ultimately failed against formidable odds to establish the remote outpost as the new capital of the South Island. From the vestiges of Jamestown we walked our way to Martins Bay, with more sumptuous podocarp rainforest to admire. The increased birdsong was also very conspicuous. Kaka, fernbirds, kakariki, tui, grey warblers and those lusciously limpid notes of the bellbird all added to the avian choir, as we drifted beneath the forest canopy, before the windswept sand-dunes and booming surf of the Tasman Sea served up a startling change in scenery. Before reaching our overnight roost, the magnificent Martins Bay Lodge, we strolled up to Long Reef to swoon over the seal colony. Mums and playful pups were lolling about the rocks, while the absentee Dads were apparently laying about in Wellington. Sumptuous Martins Bay Lodge is only seven-years-old, and is even more pamper-packed than Pyke Lodge. Warmly greeted by Sam and Anna, we started with an antipas-

to platter, before gorging on blue cod and a chocolate brownie. And the drinks just kept on coming. After another restorative sleep and decadent breakfast, we set off along the Martins Bay sand spit, eye-balling the surly breakers of the Tasman Sea, to admire two historic sights. We heard about the European settler family, the McKenzies, as we stood around the remains of their homestead, on a mound at the end of the wind-blasted sand spit. From there, a short stroll brought us to the vestiges of the old Ngai Tahu site of Opu, on the beach. Previously used as a summer village, there are numerous middens present across the sand with shellfish and hangi sites. After a ravishing lunch, one final crescendo brought our celestial three days to an operatic end. Two choppers landed in front of Martins Bay Lodge, to spirit us to Milford Sound on a riveting, climactic ride, swooping low along the rugged, jagged coastline and purring into the fiord, crowned by Mitre Peak. What a finale to a wilderness journey of a lifetime, with all the frills, a soul-rinsing encounter with Fiordland’s greatest hits. We traversed Tolkeinesque

SLEEPY: Seals lolling about on the rocks at Long Reef.

landscapes, steep-sided glacierhewn valleys and fiords, snowcapped peaks, mirror lakes, crystal-clear rivers, the soothing tinkle of tiny streams, thunderous waterfalls and remote beaches. The solitude is priceless, the birdsong is operatic and the hospitality is five-star fantastic. FAST FACTS •The Hollyford Track threeday guided experience is easy-paced. You don’t need to be a hard-out tramper to enjoy this experience, a reasonable level of fitness will make this walk very manageable.

Promoting Inclusive Economic Growth

As China has become a key engine driving global economic recovery, its economic performance has drawn increasing attention worldwide. According to the latest data from China’s National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), China’s economy continued steady expansion in the first half of this year with GDP up 6.9% to about 38.2 trillion yuan (5.6 trillion U.S. dollars). The reading is well above the government’s target for the year of 6.5%, reflecting a firming trend. Citing the growing strength of new drivers and steady progress in economic rebalancing in China, a number of international organizations and research institutions have recently revised up China’s growth forecasts, reflecting optimistic market expectations. Steady Growth Momentum Maintained China’s major economic indicators have continued to move in a positive direction in the second quarter. Power generation, freight volume and new business orders have increased notably. Foreign exchange reserves have started to grow again, and the RMB exchange rate has been basically stable. In particular, employment has been strong with surveyed unemployment rate for urban areas falling to 4.91% in May, the lowest level in years. Besides solid performance of economic indicators, the valuable changes in China’s economic structure is even more encouraging. In recent years, facing downward pressure, the Chinese government did not resort to massive, indiscriminate stimulus measures or follow the previous pattern of excessive investment and resource consumption. Instead, it has kept readjusting economic structure through reform and innovation and secured a major shift from too much reliance on export and investment to generating growth through consumption, the service sector and domestic demand. Last year, consumption became a primary growth driver, contributing 64.6% to China’s economic growth; The added value of the service sector accounted for 51.6% of GDP; Domestic demand has become a strong pillar of the economy. These major changes point to the qualitative improvement in the Chinese economy and have made economic growth more stable and sustainable. Targeting Inclusive Growth Globally Aside from its own economic achievements, China also call upon the international community to make concerted efforts to push forward the inclusive and interconnected growth worldwide. The Chinese leaders have raised such propositions during the recent G20 Summit in Hamburg.

Chinese President Xi Jinping in his remarks at the G20 summit stressed the need to build an open global economy. He called upon world’s major economies to remain committed to openness and mutual benefit for all so as to increase the size of the global economic “pie”. He said G20 countries must lead the way, support the multilateral trading system, observe the jointly established rules and, through consultation, seek all-win solutions to common challenges. Indeed, promoting inclusive growth in our times calls for upholding economic globalization. All countries are beneficiaries in this process. At the same time, both developing and developed countries have encountered challenges of different forms in adapting to economic globalization. However, these problems cannot be blamed on economic globalization per se. Instead,

countries must better adapt to and steer economic globalization forward, uphold the authority and efficacy of the multilateral system, and promote investment and trade liberalization and facilitation. In the meantime, international economic and trade rules need to be reformed and improved to secure equal rights, equal opportunities and equal rules for all countries in international economic cooperation. President Xi also pointed out the importance of fostering new sources of growth for the global economy. Compared with the previous times, the new industrial revolution offers greater promise in fostering inclusive growth. Research shows that 95% of the world’s businesses are now closely linked with the Internet, and the global economy is transitioning toward a digital economy. Now, it is much easier for anyone to log on the Internet to start a business, pursue innovation and create wealth. SMEs can get on the same starting point as big companies and foster new champions through integrated innovation. Developing countries can better leverage their comparative strengths and latecomer advantage. The key is to take vigorous and effective steps to turn these possibilities into reality and help more people, businesses and nations achieve greater progress in the new industrial revolution.

Moreover, promoting inclusive growth requires the hard work of countries themselves. Against the backdrop of economic globalization and new industrial revolution, a country’s ability to seize the opportunities to speed up economic development and address challenges of unemployment, widening income gap and poverty is very much shaped by its own choices and actions. Countries should put in place better institutional arrangements incentivizing efficiency and equity, develop a model of balanced and inclusive growth, and provide opportunities for equal participation by all. China’s Practice in Achieving Inclusive Growth China itself has been an active facilitator of inclusive growth. More inclusive growth in the country has been an important reason why the Chinese economy has maintained steady growth in recent years despite the sluggish world economy. The 11th Annual Meeting of the New Champions (World Economic Forum’s Summer Davos session) was held in Dalian, China in June. Over 2500 global participants exchanged views on the theme of “achieving inclusive growth in the Fourth Industrial Revolution”. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in his opening address shared China’s experience. He stressed that in keeping with the principles of innovative, coordinated, green, open and shared development and the new industrial revolution, the Chinese government has highlighted i nclu s ive ne ss in development strategies, and worked to promote inclusive growth through providing institutional guarantee and policy support.

China has given priority to employment in pursuing development. Without relatively full employment, inclusive growth would not be possible, and there would be no solid foundation for generating greater income and wealth. Chinese government sees employment as a key indicator of economic performance and has implemented a proactive employment policy to boost total employment, address key employment issues and help vulnerable people. It has launched targeted employment programs for college graduates, supported migrant workers in starting up businesses back in their hometowns, and provided employment assistance to laid-off workers from industries with excess capacity, vulnerable urban residents and people with disabilities. Over the past few years, over 13 million new urban jobs have been created on a yearly basis, and surveyed urban unemployment rate has been kept at around 5%. More people have been encouraged to go for entrepreneurship and innovation in China. It also helps broaden the channel of employment. To make sure that everyone takes part, contributes and shares the benefits is the essence of inclusive growth. In recent years, China has earnestly implemented the strategy of innovationdriven development, and promoted mass entrepreneurship and innovation by fostering enabling conditions. These efforts have yielded better-than-expected results. For the past three years, an average of 40,000 new market entities have been set up every day, including some 14,000 n e w l y re g i s t e re d enterprises. The Chinese government has adopted an accommodating and prudent regulatory approach toward new industries, new business forms and models, such as e-commerce, mobile payment and bike-sharing, which have enabled their fast and healthy development. As a result, people’s lives are made more convenient and a large number of jobs are created. Of all the new jobs created in China last year, about 70% were contributed by new growth drivers. The Chinese Premier also stressed the efforts to raise the standards of basic social welfare for the people. As China is the world’s biggest developing country, meeting the basic needs of the over one billion people, such as subsistence, housing, education and medical care, is a huge challenge. Through painstaking efforts, the Chinese government has put in place three social safety nets covering the entire population, i.e. basic pension, basic medical care and compulsory education. Chinese government is now putting in targeted poverty alleviation efforts with the goal of taking the remaining 40 million rural poor out of poverty by 2020. Though still facing significant economic challenges, the Chinese government is fully prepared to tackle. Given the complex and volatile external environment, short-term and marginal fluctuations of some economic indicators are inevitable at this crucial stage of transformation and upgrading of China’s economy, but the overall trajectory of stability and growth will remain unchanged, and China is believed to be fully capable of fulfilling this year’s main targets and tasks of development. As a Chinese saying goes, “The sea is vast as it admits all rivers.” An inclusive world will be a more splendid place. China is ready to work with all countries to achieve inclusive growth in economic globalization and the new industrial revolution, build a community of shared future, and create an even brighter tomorrow for mankind.

I OFTEN have to search the internet for information on evaluation cars. That’s no surprise, the worldwide web is home to a huge source of knowledge. It was while I was searching for specification and technical details of Mercedes-Benz’s E400 that it dawned on me that the range of vehicles on Mercedes-Benz’s website is extraordinary, there are at least 18 model types and, of course, many varying body shell types in each class. Take the E-Class, for example, there are three body types – sedan, coupe and cabriolet – and four engine types, two petrol and two diesel, and if you add in 4Matic (four-wheeldrive) on the E400 and AMG spec cars, the range becomes very complex. The evaluation car was the E400 4Matic and it sits in the range at $149,900; consequently, it is a premium car and one which fulfils with its high level of specification and luxury appointments. It also had an AMG specification upgrade which added $3500. The E-Class is also a big car, it is almost 5m long and is very limousine-like; that status, of course, is reserved for the S-Class, but the point I’m making is that E400 is very much a premium car and it has been engineered to a point of high sophistication. Take the air suspension, for example, the ride is glorious, Christchurch’s conglomeration of uneven surfaces are dealt to, the E400 glides over the bumps and ruts, the occupants are treated to opulence and comfort. Under the bonnet sits a 3-litre V6 engine. While that in itself is not surprising, when you add a couple of turbochargers which boost the power and torque outputs to 245kW and 480Nm you have a vehicle of immense performance. There’s nothing quite like the feel of a turbocharged six-cylinder engine, and the E400 doesn’t disappoint. Power is channelled through a nine-speed automatic transmission which does well to harness the power flow in a civilised

MERCEDES-BENZ E400: Powerful petrol engine.

manner, the refinement of the process is something quite extraordinary. In terms of figures, the E-Class in this form is capable of a 5.2sec run to make 100km/h from a standstill. It will also make 120km/h from 80km/h in 4sec. While these times are true performance car stats, the E400, is also a bit of a fuel miser. • Price – MercedesBenz E400, $149,900 • Dimensions – Length, 4923mm; width, 1852mm; height, 1468mm • Configuration – V6, four-wheel-drive, 2996cc, 245kW, 480Nm, nine-speed automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 5.2sec • Fuel usage – 8.4l/100km

Mercedes-Benz claims an 8.4-litre per 100km/h (34mpg) combined cycle average. The trip computer in the evaluation car was constantly showing around 9.6l100km/h (29mpg) which fits well with the manufacturer’s figures. A 7l/100km (40mpg) instantaneous figure at 100km/h is also possible with the engine turning over at a sultry 1200rpm. It was a filthy day when I chose to test the E400, rain was falling and the roads were drenched. I guess that’s where the benefits of four-wheel-drive come in, the car always felt composed and there was never a point when I thought grip would be lost. I tackled the tight corners heading into Terrace Downs near Windwhistle and the big 20in Pirelli PZero never felt like giving

up their tenure with the road surface. Therein lies another benefit of air suspension, the tyres are very low profile yet the ride quality is just simply magical. Body movement over the suspension is also arrested quickly, there is no lurch nor any indication that gravitational force is working against occupant comfort. The E400 is a fabulous touring car, one which will provide the driver (and all occupants) a pleasurable travelling experience. It can be driven enthusiastically on a high country journey, but also it has a relaxing low speed drive which makes the city traffic battle a breeze. Yet, if you want to explore the performance factor, the engine unleashes fury and fire when the accelerator is given a bit of a nudge. The engine sounds quite feisty under load and that is a V6 characteristic, but it is only heard when working toward the mid-range rev band; under normal driving conditions it is whisper quiet. As much as the E400 is about performance and ability, it also offers the prestige you’d expect from a premium Germanmarque. It is exquisite on the inside with appointments and detailing worthy of its price. It also has the latest generation safety gear and technological advancements that is a launching pad for autonomous motoring further down the track. Global sales of MercedesBenz product are on a high, and trends in New Zealand are similar. That doesn’t surprise, good cars like the E-Class are spearheading that movement.

Baxy to miss grand-final

VICTORIOUS: Marcus Armstrong celebrates after another win in the German formula four championship. ​

VACATION: Hornby Panthers and Canterbury Bulls captain James Baxendale will be in Croatia during Sunday’s grand-final.

Panthers face Keas without captain

Armstrong in title hunt MARCUS ARMSTRONG has continued his impressive string of results in Europe by winning his third race in the German formula four championship. His win at the Nürburgring, Germany, over the weekend laid down a marker of his title ambitions. The 17-yearold registered a comfortable lights-to-flag win ahead of Julian Hanses, of Germany, and Enzo Fittipaldi, of Brazil (the grandson of two-time formula one world champion Emerson Fittipaldi). Armstrong started from pole and made a brilliant start, pulling out a clear lead from the first turn. “The victory today was very important before the championship goes into the last two weekends,” said Armstrong. “It’s fantastic to have won here.

We had some problems that made the first two races really heavy going. Fortunately, in the third race, we were able to pick up the points we lost earlier. The last few races will be closely contested, but I’m very confident that we can do it.” The win moves Armstrong into second place in the championship on 171 points, only 11.5 points behind championship leader Juri Vips. The championship has two rounds remaining at Sachsenring (September 15-17) and Hockenheimring (September 22-24) in Germany. Armstrong is also competing in the Italian formula four championship. He currently leads that championship with three rounds remaining. The next round will be at Imola on September 10.

„„ By Gordon Findlater THE HORNBY Panthers will be doing it for Baxy when they meet the Linwood Keas in the club rugby league grand-final at Linfield Park on Sunday. The battle for the Pat Smith Trophy was set to be played last Sunday at AMI Stadium. However, due to severe flooding last month a round of the competition was pushed back a week, forcing Canterbury Rugby League to find another venue. It also means Panthers captain James Baxendale will be receiving updates on the game from Croatia. The back-rower had arranged the overseas trip with a group of friends for after what was going to be the end of the club season.

Warriors could spoil Raiders hopes of finals appearance

AFTER A season of not meeting expectations, Canberra face the cruel prospect of having their finals hopes killed off by the NRL’s perennial underachievers. The Warriors have crashed to five-straight losses as they prepare to host the resurgent Raiders on Sunday at Mt Smart Stadium. It will be the sixth consecutive season in which they have failed to qualify for the finals. While the Raiders were expect-

ed to challenge for the premiership on the back of last year’s preliminary-final appearance, they’re two games out of the eight, AAP reported yesterday. The Green Machine need to win their remaining four games to give them a chance of playing finals. Canberra five-eighth Blake Austin sees a parallel between his side and the Warriors. “They’re in a similar position to what we’ve been in for most of

the year,” Austin said. “Every year, the experts have high expectations for the Warriors and, once again, they’ve struggled to live up to them. “They’re going to have a point to prove.” The difference is the Raiders faint playoff hopes remain alive. Back-to-back wins have coincided with improved performances from Austin and halfback Aidan Sezer. The pair switched sides mid-

season, allowing Austin to play on the left edge and team up with second-rower Josh Papalii, a man he credited as a major part of his breakout 2015 season when he was crowned the competition’s best five-eighth. Austin said he begged coach Ricky Stuart to allow them to combine again. “That was one of the main reasons I was so excited about getting back on the left,” Austin said. With Josh Hodgson returning

to starting hooker, the Raiders playmakers found greater balance as they scored a convincing win last week over defending premiers Cronulla. But, with everything on the line for the Raiders, they face a team with nothing to lose in the Warriors. “We’re under no illusions how tough this road trip is but, at the end of the day, it’s just a mustwin and that’s what we’re preparing to do,” Austin said.

The All Blacks dominance of first Bledisloe Cup test IF THE Wallabies are to end their Bledisloe Cup drought against the All Blacks, winning the opening clash next Saturday would obviously be a good start. However, in spite of often beginning the series on home soil, Australia’s record in the first trans-Tasman encounter of the year points to the Wallabies starting on the back foot in the series once again. The Wallabies handed over the Bledisloe Cup in 2003 and haven’t touched it since. Over

the drought, they’ve won the first Bledisloe Cup clash just three times but then gone on to fail to close out the series. Going back to the introduction of the Tri-Nations in 1996, the Aussies have won the opening encounter of the season five times in 20 years, including one draw. Last year’s opening clash in Sydney took the trans-Tasman rivalry to a new low with the All Blacks handing the Wallabies a 42-8 thrashing.

The Wallabies last won the first Bledisloe Cup test in 2015, a 2719 victory inspired by replacement Nic White who came off the bench and scored 10 points. The previous year was a dour 12-12 draw, which ended a fiveyear run of the All Blacks taking out the opening game. Next Saturday’s test will be the sixth straight year that Sydney has hosted the opening Bledisloe Cup test of the year. The All Blacks have a relatively low 58.33 per cent winning record at Sta-

CHECKLIST FOR SELLING YOUR HOME

EVERY THURSDAY

Your Earthquake damaged home!

… MAKE SMALL FIXES Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes, and correct the flaws that are most egregious (if affordable) or can be relatively easily fixed—from repairing cracks in the walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling creaky hinges. … SET A PRICE A real estate agent will give you a market analysis free of charge or commitment. Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market, then ask to see listings for properties similar to yours that have sold in the past six months. Check out comparable listings yourself in the real estate section of your newspaper or on websites. Then decide whether you want a quick, easy sale or the highest possible price. … CLEAN & DECLUTTER Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and “stuff”—toss it, donate it, give it away, sell it at a yard sale, or put it into storage— so the house seems more spacious and buyers can imagine themselves in it.

39

Talk to us if you are serious about selling your “As is Where is” home. … STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE From the moment you start showing your house, keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens weeded, rooms spotless and clutter-free. … READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN DAYS Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of cookies for the homey smell, open the drapes, keep pets out of sight. … DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR OWN BUILDING INSPECTION It may save you time, especially with older homes, to identify—and potentially solve— problems your buyer’s inspection will discover later.

NEW LISTINGS

We have sold over 100 “As is Where is” homes and we have a huge database of qualified buyers.

Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, which includes a precise description of the home zone, this may be viewed at the school office or on the school website, where copies of the scheme are also available. The board has determined that 20 places may be available for out of zone students during the remainder of this year. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school's home zone. The school operates an approved special programme for Māori Medium Education and expects that there will be about 20 places available in the programme for out of zone students next year. Over the next year there will be four enrolment periods. The first enrolment period runs from 28th August, 2017 to 22nd December, 2017. For students seeking enrolment within the first enrolment period, the deadline for receipt of applications for out of zone places is 25th August, 2017. Parents of students who live within the home zone and intend enrolling their child at any time during the remainder of the year should notify the school by 25th August to assist the school to plan appropriately for the remainder of the school year. Students who live in the home zone are entitled to enrol at the school. Applications can be made by contacting the school office. Applications from out of zone students will be processed in the following order of priority: • First priority must be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school: Te Whānau Puawai of Ngākaunui (Māori Medium Programme) • Second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school: • Third priority must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school: • Fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school: • Fifth priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school: • Sixth priority must be given to all other applicants If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot except in the case of the special programme, where the individual programme entry criteria apply. If a ballot for out of zone places is required, it will be held on 28th August, 2017. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.

Details relating to the second enrolment period are as follows: • Length of enrolment period: from 31st January, 2018 to 13th April, 2018. (TERM 1, 2018) • Deadline for receipt of applications: 15th November, 2017 (WEEK 5, TERM 4, 2017) • Date of ballot: 20th November, 2017

You can dance, You can jive

DND SHOWBAND returns to the Hornby Club next Saturday 19th August, and by popular request will include their ABBA tribute set in the programme! Christchurch based DnD Showband has been delighting audiences across the country with their multi-tribute theme shows for an incredible ten years. Despite earthquakes, tsunami warnings, wild fires, and floods they continue to travel the country - although it may take them a little longer than in earlier days to reach their destination! Coming months sees them with show performances in Blenheim, Hawera, Waikanae, Levin, Porirua, Ashburton, and Timaru. Check out their website www.dndshowband.com for show details. “We’re rather proud that we get repeat bookings around the country. The North Island especially has a huge pool of amazing talent at its disposal. It’s flattering that an act from Christchurch is so well received,” said Jo Davern, DnD manager. In rehearsal mode for next Saturday’s show at the Hornby Club, the 6 piece live band has been busy fine tuning show content, sorting costumes and tightening up moves. “It’s not just all about ABBA, we’ve put together a great play list guaranteed to get everyone up dancing. And for those who prefer to listen and watch, our professional tech’s Peter and Amanda will be out front running our sound and light systems to ensure it sounds and looks wonderful,” said Jo. Tickets $20 on sale now at the Hornby Club, 17 Carmen Rd, ph 03 349 9026. Door sales $25.
