Lecture on the Treaty of Waitangi. Since 1987 New Zealand have focussed little on the purpose encapsulated by the Treaty but more on the words that appears in it. Act of Parliament: highest source of law in New Zealand. What is Reasonable? Crown? Partnership? Two friends got owned by the lecturer asking them for definitions.

Some acts looked at: energy, minerals. Section 6 states all persons exercising power must take all 4 factors into account.

Treaty principals not race based law, rather, property rights. Lecturer keeps hovering over to us. Dangerous. A lot of the consultation appears to have a spiritual basis. The Crown still vetoes the recommendations by Maori consultants.
