Petition to Toyota: Pay the $391,000 back to Palmerston North ratepayers

Header image

Last week, the New Zealand Taxpayers' Union revealed that Palmerston North City Council secretly gave a ratepayer-funded grant of $391,000 to Toyota for a local warehouse expansion.

We say that, with profits of more than 22 billion USD, Toyota can afford its own warehouse upgrades without handouts from Palmerston North ratepayers!

The Council and Toyota have so far refused to explain why or how this decision was made. Enough is enough. We are launching this petition calling on Toyota New Zealand the pay the money back.

"I call on Toyota New Zealand to pay back the $391,000 sum taken from Palmerston North ratepayers."
