    Here we go – another river for the GWRC to destroy the river’s ecosystem by poisoning the native plants and planting English willows and filling in all the deep pools with bulldozers. All driven by the green elements in the council who have no knowledge of the function of our native intertidal plants or what lives in the water. The council have proved this with their draft management plan for East Harbour Park and QE2 Park. Since 1970 they have prevented the Wellington South coast lakes water from flowing to the sea and seawater flowing to the lakes. Even after seven years their appointed management group for East Harbour Park has failed to find a solution. The Regional Council have demonstrated their river environmental knowledge is totally inadequate, with bulldozers in the Hutt River every day filling in the deep pools and pushing shingle from one side to the other lifting the silt and causing untold stress to the life in the river.
    Maybe the Waikanae River ecosystem is going to get the same treatment? If that happens, the huge hauls of whitebait that were taken this year will be the last.
