I'M completely puzzled by Stuart Collie's mistrust of National's key adviser on the environment, Guy Salmon.

Mr Salmon and his Bluegreen associates have spent years forming environmental policy that is acceptable to the National Party and its followers and will be disappointed to hear he has been criticised by the chairman of a council, especially one in the region Bill English hopes to capture.

Perhaps Mr Collie has no time for any advocate for the environment, no matter who they are.
