Old topic, but I found this video by Metro News broadcasted on CTV in early January.
[quote:35yyjeen]Debate continues on whether Christchurch’s New Brighton Pier should be open to fishers, after a man was stabbed following an argument over fishing territory. A story broadcast on Canterbury Television.
The “stabbing” refers to this: http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/c … rch/666187 , which I didn’t actually know about. Also doesn’t mention anything about anyone being stabbed there.
So really the future of fishing on the Pier is still not certain.
