John Key has decided that he is going to open up some of our national parks for mining. New Zealanders like myself think this is insane because NZ is supposed to be untouched and beautiful, but how can we enjoy our country if it’s covered in mining gear. The government is making a bit of sense by saying it going to make lots money but even if we make billions of dollars we cannot undo this. We made a similar mistake years ago when we burnt down Karori for farming but it turned out that it was to steep and couldn’t farm so it all when to waste. It took hundreds years to grow back and it is going to be the same with this so please write letters to John Key to try and stop this. S.O.N.P!
