Prime Minister John Key is rejecting an iwi leader's comments that Maori may have a claim to wind under the Treaty of Waitangi. Ngapuhi elder David Rankin is representing a group of hapu which plans to take a claim to the Waitangi Tribunal over wind. The group wants a pan-tribal body to manage shares in commercial wind-generated electricity, and to exercise a casting vote on where wind turbines can be located.
