During question time on Tuesday, ACT List MP Simon Court directed pātai to Local Government Minister Nanaia Mahuta over Te Mana o te Wai statements - concerned with the health and wellbeing of waterways - and whether they granted mana whenua more influence than other groups in Three Waters reforms matters.

Epitome of selflessness now needing help

Vyron Smith (Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Ranginui), left a promising rugby career behind to help save his whānau.

First, he moved to Melbourne to help his brother, who was struggling mentally, physically, and with a few heart attacks on the horizon, to lose weight.

Then two years ago, Smith's father, Evan, was diagnosed with kidney disease and needed a kidney transplant, and Vyron stepped up to donate one of his kidneys.
