Julie and I have just signed the Nomination Form For Clyde to run in the Waikato Regional Council elections in the Spring. He will represent Coromandel which he has won before. It will be good to have him on the inside so we can keep an eye on the WRC as they are the most prolific spreaders of poisons particularly aerial 1080 of all our Councils.
WRC Councils latest mission is to stop the spread of Wallaby through the Kaimai Ranges with heavy drops of 1080. But wait for it, there is no EVIDENCE that wallaby have entered the Kaimais as yet except that one was found dead on the road. This animal was more than likely killed elsewhere and transported to the site it was found. Its been done before to give an excuse for poisoning an area when the local object to what is happening. I remember a well known Helicopter firm producing two Red deer with TB and claiming they were shot in the Urewera's. The helicopter firms reputation was such that no one else believes them to this day. No other deer with TB have ever been found in the area forty plus years and many thousands have been recovered since.
