Labour candidate calls for licensing of recreational fishers!!!

The Marlborough Express reports:

Most controversial was Labour’s Janette Walker, who proposed a licence for recreational fishers in the Marlborough Sounds as a way of funding a public advocacy group.

Think about how hideous this is. The Labour candidate wants:

  • Recreational fishing to be an activity you need a licence for
  • An effective tax (licence fee) on recreational fishers
  • The tax to go to some sort of lobby group

What other recreational activities do Labour candidates want licensed? Cycling?
