My principal place of residence is in the South
Canterbury/Ōtuhituhi Constituency area.
Many of our children and grandchildren know
that our climate crisis threatens their lives. As a
passionate Cantabrian, grandad, PhD scientist,
engineer and climate-elder I care about their future. So I will
prioritise clean, safe drinking water, a stable climate,
swimmable rivers and an ecologically and economically resilient
environment over short term profits from pollution which
creates unforgiveable and unacceptable costs for future
I'm active on three water management committees,
representing the voice of this community. I understand the
science of climate change and its serious social, environmental,
cultural and economic impacts. I've learned what we must do
before it's too late.
With the return of democracy to ECan, the true interests of our
communities can now be served. With your vote and support, I
can help lead this transformation to restore our province and
create a sustainable future we can be proud of.
