So sad. http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/0,2106,3469605a10,00.html Greens co-leader dies 06 November 2005 Green Party co-leader Rod Donald, 48, has died. A Green Party spokeswoman told NZPA Mr Donald died overnight at his home in Banks Peninsula. It is understood he suffered a heart attack. Mr Donald is survived by his partner, Nicola, and their three daughters, Holly, Emma and Zoe. Mr Donald's modest central Christchurch electorate office was unoccupied this afternoon. In the window of the tiny Bedford Row office, cluttered with Green Party banners, pamphlets and posters, was smiling life-size cardboard cutout pictures of Mr Donald and party co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons.
