The Herald reported:
The Auckland Council has money for the Parnell cathedral and Lopdell House in Titirangi but no money to upgrade marae, says Independent Maori Statutory Board member John Tamihere.
I’ve got an idea.
How about ratepayers don’t fund either, and instead the Anglican Church funds the Holy Trinity Cathedral and Ngati Whatua fund local marae?
Mr Tamihere criticised the “tyranny of the majority around the council table” for funding projects like Parnell cathedral while ignoring spending on marae.
Fair enough. So do neither.
