Prior to the Christmas break, using old Stop The Stadium Inc mailing lists* (the organisation is legally defunct), local woman Bev Butler distributed links to a public report and petition on suspected non-payment of a one million dollar donation that was heralded to underpin DCC/CST commencement of stadium construction at Dunedin—a donation promised by Queenstown philanthropist Eion Edgar.
The petition is headed ‘Sir Eion Edgar: Please pay the $1,000,000 donation as promised for the benefit of all Dunedin ratepayers’.
The report indicates non-payment may see complaints to the UK-based Honours Forfeiture Committee.
