Restoring democracy to Canterbury

Labour will bring a member's bill to restore democracy to Canterbury, by forcing ECan's commissioners to call an immediate election. Good. The sacking of Environment Canterbury's elected representatives and its replacement with unelected dictators was an affront to democracy, and it should be reversed as quickly as possible. I'm pleased to see the opposition will be using all the tools at its disposal to make that happen.
