Tariana Turia: "Getting On Your Bike"

Thank you to Pat Watson of Community Waitakere for that kind introduction.

I want to firstly share my excitement that when the panui was sent throughout the country, hundreds of people immediately put up their hand and responded to the call.

I'm not at all surprised.  In this room is the heart of Aotearoa - the people who give our nation the reputation of being a country that cares.
