Northland mining should be banned

 I recommend that Northland mining should be banned.

Here are my reasons listen up they will blow your mind!

I think mining is the most dangerous job ever.  There was that tragic mining accident in the Pike River South in the South Island that killed over 30 men.  Imagine all those poor families who lost their dads, brothers or uncles.

Mining kills sea life when the big tracks have a oil leak they pollute the sea.  Up here in Northland we are surrounded by the sea with the most delicious kaimoana.  If we had oil leaks we wouldn’t be able to go get pipis, mussels or kinas, everything would taste like oil.  YUCK!!

Are you convinced I hope so!  Thanks for listening to my speech.
