Isn't this amazing.
"The Minister of Conservation, Tim Groser, will not stand in the way of a proposed hydro-electric development on the Nevis River.
The Nevis River water conservation order hearing was told in Cromwell yesterday
the Department of Conservation's deal with dam developer Pioneer Generation meant that if the power company gained all the other consents it needed for a dam, the Minister of Conservation would also give consent." (MY EMPHASIS)
Tim Groser and DOC aren't working for the people or the environment. No - they work for dam developers with secret deals that are disgusting. Don't worry about the merits of whether a dam is needed or wanted, the secret deal has been done - your puppet masters have spoken - so get dancing!
