Say no to $150,000

Waipa Post - - News - JUNE BRIGHT Te Awa­mutu

I agree with Bruce Stott and many oth­ers that it is not ap­pro­pri­ate for Waipa¯ Dis­trict Coun­cil to spend $150,000 in France to com­mem­o­rate an his­toric bat­tle out­come.

More rel­e­vant would be fund­ing, af­ter iwi con­sul­ta­tion, to sup­port a me­mo­rial to the many New Zealan­ders who died bravely and those who lived to pass down equally heroic and mov­ing sto­ries.

There are sev­eral ap­pro­pri­ate bat­tle sites to choose from.
