Canterbury has a posse that change post quake, a Mayor who does not have the power to make the changes, a Sheriff running wild and directing the posse. This presentation includes interesting facts and information about Gateway changes and why it got harder and harder post quake and why Canterbury will be riddled with failed repairs, or people underpaid. The Sheriff the Posse and the Cowboys – their own little police state maybe? The townsfolk can fight back – and they are!
