Metiria Turei on protecting NZ's drinking water

Metiria Turei on protecting NZ's drinking water

This week on the show, Metiria talks to Ximena about the Green Party's new water policy unveiled during their campaign launch in the weekend. The policy proposes an interim measure of charging bottling companies ten cents for every litre of water they intend to sell, as well as eventually putting in place a comprehensive commercial water pricing scheme over time. Ximena also asks Metiria about the fiery back-and-forth that unfolded between the Greens and NZ First during the weekend, raising the question of whether the two parties can put their differences aside and form a cooperative government if they come out on top in this year's election.
