Sharks at water company to play the “purest” export game again!
Ashburton District Council had previously failed to flog the extraction rights for the dodgy water to a Chinese buyer.
Green Party water spokeswoman Catherine Delahunty said the council’s deal was “outrageous” and she was concerned regardless of which company was involved.
“It doesn’t really change our concerns at all that they are a Christchurch company because they are still taking that water and proposing to export it without any proper process for the Ashburton community.
“They are allowed to do that because [Environment Canterbury] and Ashburton District Council are not making sure that people are given a democratic say over this. It’s still a major concern whoever owns the company that water is being taken and it’s basically going offshore without the community having a say so our concerns remain.”
