Who owns our water? It's a question that can no longer be ignored says Green Party co-leader James Shaw. He caught up with The Country's Jamie Mackay today to talk about an issue that has been on his party's agenda for a while.

Although water is a renewable source, it is not infinite warns Shaw and pristine drinking water even less so. James is keen to have monitored access and pricing set up around this precious commodity.

Finally Jamie and James talk about John Key leaving parliament and what Shaw thinks the former Prime Minister's legacy is.
