Too cau­tious

The Dominion Post - - Opinion -

When it comes to the Welling­ton Town Hall, why strengthen to 100 per cent NBS?

100 per cent NBS is not a 100 per cent guar­an­tee. It is just a num­ber.

Why not 150 per cent NBS? What if a 400 per cent NBS earth­quake strikes the Town Hall?

33 per cent NBS pro­vides the same risk as flying com­mer­cially – strengthen to that.

600 peo­ple com­mit­ted sui­cide last year. 500 in to­tal have died by earth­quake since 1840. Just say­ing. DAVID KERNOHAN
