This is the speech I prepared in full for Suffrage Day, September 19, here in Christchurch. It had to be edited to ensure that children could speak – which is the very reason we gathered, the future place of democracy in Christchurch itself:

Social crisis deepens following Christchurch earthquake

Sunday, 23 September 2012 7:18 p.m. by user1 Featured Popular

The New Zealand city of Christchurch was hit by its first destructive earthquake in September 2010, and a second quake in February 2011 that killed 185 people. More than two years later, the city of 300,000, along with nearby communities such as Kaiapoi, are enduring a deepening social crisis for which the National Party government is directly responsible. Thousands of residents have left due to the destruction of houses and jobs, and many others are still living in damaged houses or in overcrow ...

Canterbury Schools Latest – Earlier Media Reports Confused

Sunday, 16 September 2012 6:01 p.m. by SaveOurSchools

It seems the announcements today were something of a cock-up, with misinformation and just plain wrong information out there, largely because things were announced in a half-assed fashion.  I’d love to believe it was just because the Government (and Hekia Parata in particular) is incompetent, and maybe I’m just getting too old and cynical, but you know what, I can’t help thinking it was all highly convenient way of covering Gerry Brownlee’s  today so i ...

I grew up in Christchurch. Spent my early teenage years wandering round the city on a Friday night, went to the movies, met friends in the Square, and waited for the late bus home. Spent my pocket money on late night shopping Fridays, drank Coke rather than coffee and convinced myself I was grown up. The city was a vast playground for my friends and I; sights and sounds waiting to be discovered around every corner. Then the later teenage years arrived. I partied with friends in the CBD’s b ...

A survey of a sub-set of Canterbury small businesses severely impacted by the earthquake shows optimism is on the increase and sales are trending up, but they are still facing some weighty issues. These businesses identified as being particularly adversely affected by the earthquake continue to face challenges with respect to cashflow, marketing, fatigue and rebuilding issues.

Insurance Issues in Christchurch

Insurance Issues in Christchurch

Monday, 3 September 2012 10:07 p.m. by BrentSelwyn Popular

When buying a house in earthquake damaged Canterbury it has become commonplace to assign insurance claims to the new purchaser. This is obviously very convenient for both the buyer and the seller. If the buyer so chooses, if the repairs have not been completed, they can take on the benefit of  the claim and  deal with the insurer direct to have repairs effected.

However, recent interpretation of insurance law by IAG and Vero in particular have ...

I have a double brick character house which has been deemed uneconomic to repair. The cost to repair was priced in the high $300,000s. Rebuild the same house at $345,000 .  My insurance company is working me over with the details to build me a box devoid of character and features instead. I have a comprehensive policy which states they will "rebuild the new house as it was when new with modern materials and methods". They say a simple house valued at 203,000 is a modern equivalent ...

At one point last year, the plight facing red-zoners was described as being like "climbing Mt Everest with jandals on". While it's still the case that many red-zoners are facing an uphill battle to re-build their lives, I would like to think that we've now been able to locate some crampons to make the climb possible.
