Crowds march in Feilding as Māori wards decision deferred

From Checkpoint, 6:14 pm on 11 May 2021

Hundreds of people marched to the Manawatū District Council buildings in Feilding today to protest against the council kicking the can down the road on Māori representation.

The council voted last week to defer a decision on Māori wards until 2023.

In 2017 the council voted to establish a Māori ward, but that was later overturned.

Te Aorewa Rolleston has more.
