ECan and Our Rates

 According to the poll published in The Press, opinion in Canterbury was fairly divided on whether the Government had done the right thing in sacking the Canterbury Regional Councillors – with slightly more opposed than in favour of the Government’s move.

One thing that has struck me and others, though, is that I think that this will be the first time that I have been taxed (or rated) by a non-elected body.

The Americans fought a revolution over that.
