Owen McShane Bows Out

Regular readers will be aware that I held Owen in high regard, and with his permission, re-printed many of his columns. Owen died over the weekend  - he had not been in good health following a heart operation over a year ago.

Owen's view on local government were always controversial, but by golly, he mostly hit the mark in regard to amalgamations and planning issues, which was his field of expertise.

There were probably few of his admirers who were in agreement with his views on climate change, but he debated his position with vigour and commitment. And humour!

I for one will miss his regular contribution to debate over a range of issues.

Go well Owen (71)
