DrL, The only thing the so called fathers of Christchurch are concerned with is Heritage and that Bloody cathedral, which in reality is only a minature in comparrison to anything in Britain. To actually think that people from Europe would come to Christchurch to see a copy of what they could find in any European Village is Delusion to the extreme. The cathedral should be demolished the ground levelled and a monument that shows respect for our lost citizens be built in its place. Having a cathedral as a center piece of our city insults all intelligent people of this city. We are now a secular city as people have grown out of praising an evil deity. only dim-wits get involved in such superstition.
keith0800 So many opinions, But The Cathedral is on Anglican Land and they will make up their own minds or have already.The settlement of Canterbury was never entirely Anglican even though it was referred to as such. On The First Four Ships there were Wesleyan families, Baptist family, and Presbyterian Families French Roman Catholics settled in Akaroa in 1840 and Presbyterian families had settled on Banks Peninsula and the Canterbury Plains as early as 1843.
The Press,s photo of Ngaire Button Acting Mayor says it all about the culture in Christchurch between the City Council and we citizens.It show a bureaucratic councillor looking down on the" revolting peasants" but not thinking of interacting with them and a council staff who draw the blinds and raise them only when the rabble has gone.This all shows indications of their future demise.
Those who work in the community know more than anyone what the specific issues are in relation to rental housing in Christchurch at the moment. The Power of the community is needed to address the crisis. and in finding solutions to the housing shortage. 70 people have been invited to a Housing Summit Prior to the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes Christchurch had more that 1500 young people at any given time in unsafe and insecure housing. All public is invited to The Housing Summit 9am-12 0clock KNOX Hall cnr Bealey Ave and Victoria Street. Wednesday MAY 9TH.
R.I.P. The Grand Chancellor Hotel (Ugliest building in Christchurch ) GONE.!
Great to see a rebuild job. Fletchers & EQC moved a home worth saving off a Kainga Section then remediated section and placed better foundations down. The home was the first to be done in this way. They say there maybe 12,000 homes to do.Recycling is sure the way to go.

"R.I.P. The Grand Chancellor Hotel (Ugliest building in Christchurch ) GONE.!"
I strongly dispute that! The ugliest building in CHCH is that hideous govt life building in the square - it was a happy day when I heard its to come down.
BD, I had forgotten that.!
BD, Phillip Carter of Carter Group owned that and was hanging on to it for a new hotel one day. Wonder what it could become now.?
"Wonder what it could become now.?"
Rubble - with any sort of luck!

Bob Jones wants the city to become a lake. I can just see all the duck shooters in their Maimai taking pot shots, The flower festival will be held on barges and shopping done in Gondolas with tenors voices soaring above the Hamilton jets.
