Today on the show, the Wednesday team takes a look at water as an election issue. This comes just after an announcement yesterday that Federated Farmers are committed to helping make New Zealand’s rivers swimmable, which is a goal already shared by a number of different environmental, political and conservation groups. However, not everyone seems to agree on the best way to reach this goal, as often the interests of the stakeholders involved - from farmers to environmentalists - are at odds with each other. We speak to Choose Clean Water’s Marnie Prickett, eco farmer John King, Federated Farmers’ Water spokesperson Chris Allen and the University of Otago’s Marc Schallenberg to learn about why water matters as an election issue and what solutions have the most to offer for the future of New Zealand’s fresh waterways.
