2:10 Manukau's Rafting Facility Proposal - Sir Noel Robinson and Dick Quax.

A 30 million dollar community recreation project has sparked political controversy in Auckland.
The Counties Manukau Pacific Trust wants to go ahead with an international whitewater rafting facility, to be built at the site of the TelstraClear Pacific Events Centre. They say it'll benefit not only sportspeople and tourism in South Auckland, but also thousands of kids a year.
The facility would be mostly funded by the sale of $20 million of council land next to the events centre... and the land sale is being put to a vote at an Auckland Council meeting tomorrow.
But Auckland councillor Dick Quax is very vocally opposed to the centre going ahead.
