Civil Aviation Authority finally suspends the Air Operating Certificate of Alpine Adventures
The South Island helicopter firm involved in the fatal crash at Fox Glacier last year has finally been grounded over safety issues six months later.
The Civil Aviation Authority [finally took their thumb out of their backside and] suspended the Air Operating Certificate (AOC) of James Patrick Scott, whose company, Alpine Adventures, has operated flights in Fox Glacier, Franz Josef, and Tekapo.
Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) director Graeme Harris confirmed the suspension while the CAA investigated concerns about the safety of the operation.
Seven people were killed in the November 2015 crash including the Dutch-born 28-year-old pilot Mitch Gameren, four visitors from England—Andrew Virco of Cambridge, 50, Katharine Walker of Cambridge, 51, Nigel Edwin Charlton of Hampshire, 66, Cynthia Charlton of Hampshire, 70, and two tourists from New South Wales, Asutralia—Sovannmony Leang, 27, and Josephine Gibson, 29.
How Many Foreigners Killed in NZ Since 2000?
About 3,500 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers, recent emigrants and refugees have lost their lives and 20,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since year 2000.
Truth hurts New Zealand tourism. The average tourist would not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads. Therefore:
To protect the tourism industry, about two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Minitru [“Ministry of Transport”.]
About 2.7 million licensed but not necessary qualified drivers, half million or so unlicensed/unqualified drivers and more than one million tourists (per year) drive on New Zealand death roads.
A large number of the above drive a vehicle under the influence (illicit drugs, banned substances, prescription medication…), while intoxicated, fatigued or mentally unfit, resulting in inordinate numbers of fatalities and injuries. [Other factors for the carnage include deadly roads, road unworthy vehicles…]
Between 2001 and 2014, New Zealand’s vehicle fleet reportedly increased by 32 per cent, while the population grew by 16 per cent and foreign travel was up by 15 per cent. And over the last 10 years the number of international visitors has increased by about 30 per cent.
Today is DAY 165 of the latest NZ TOURISTS or truth? (police censorship of road fatalities) campaign
- Blog estimate: About 900 people are killed on NZ roads each year. [Most probably] up to 370 road fatalities have occurred in NZ since 1 January 2016
How do they do it?
Police manipulate the road toll by censoring reports of fatal crashes, while the Ministry of Transport simply delete the unwanted road fatalities, even from their published records.
- Miracles in Godzone: Police, Transport Ministry bring back to life two more dead motorists!
Only one road fatality recorded, despite at least two reported fatal crashes since Thursday. There were also six people critically injured, whose fates remain unknown.

UN investigating Cork homelessness crisis
The UN has questioned the Irish government over the lack of emergency shelter, safe drinking water and sanitation for homeless people in Cork.
The office of the UN high commissioner for human rights acted after a complaint from the House the Homeless and Hydrate the Homeless groups in Cork. The UN had raised similar concerns with Irish officials nine months ago but has had no response. http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/un-investigating-cork-homelessness-crisis-8hg8wzmw9
Of course, they would be prevented by Helen Clark, if they were to investigate homelessness in Auckland.

Convicted trout poacher: NZ justice system ‘racist’
Thomas Tawha, the man jailed for poaching trout alongside his cousin David Leef, says the justice system is prejudiced against Māori.
This follows Ara Adams-Tamatea’s Facebook post, pointing out the difference in sentencing between a group of white men, and Leef, that gained huge traction online last week.
It read: “Both parties broke the law, and both parties were sorry. One party committed burglaries to the tune of $80k for fun while the other stole 10 fish to feed his family. Both crimes in the eyes of the law and I’m not disputing that. One gets to “serve time” at home with their family while the other has to serve jail time and leave his family. Take a wild guess who has to go to jail for stealing 10 fish. Not 80,000 fish or $80,000 worth of fish. 10 fish VS $80k of private property.” http://www.newshub.co.nz/nznews/convicted-trout-poacher-nz-justice-system-racist-2016052912

The Top Cow and Her Judges
More complaints about top Cow Dame Sian Elias’ judges, but farm says rules ‘ridiculous’
Judges owned by the top cow Dame Sian Elias have wandered into Canterbury waterways at least three times since a warning issued in January.
Stock from The Lakes station in North Canterbury have been in Lake Sumner, and in the Hurunui River, which is a clear breach of the rules.
Environment Canterbury (ECan) issued Elias and Fletcher a warning after a holidaymaker photographed their cows standing in Lake Taylor, which borders a Department of Conservation (Doc) campsite, in January.
After an investigation, ECan determined they had breached the rules but stopped short of issuing a fine, saying it was an isolated incident. http://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/80360205/more-complaints-about-top-judge-dame-sian-elias-cows
ECan has since used various excuses in February, March and April to not issue fines, despite overabundance of odorous evidence, cow excrement on both sides of the Hurunui River, and both in Lake Taylor and Lake Sumner.
