Three white flags will fly from the very top of the Sky Tower this week, to raise awareness about mental health in the construction industry.

SkyCity spokesperson Arron Money said the construction industry has one of the highest rates of suicide in the commercial sector in New Zealand.

“Flying the flags from the top of the Sky Tower is our way of acknowledging the problem and empowering the industry to do something about it. The flags are a visual reminder for workers to stop and have the courage to ask a mate if they are alright,” he said.

Fly the Flag is a campaign created by Mates in Construction - an organisation established to combat the high rate of suicide among construction workers in New Zealand.

As a mark of respect for the families who have lost loved ones to suicide, the Sky Tower will also be lit as large ribbon with colours of orange and gold on September 10 to support World Suicide Prevention Day.

Poll: Do you agree with Domino’s new ‘tip your driver’ feature?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

Domino’s is under fire after adding a tipping feature to its online ordering system, with critics saying the pizza chain should “pay staff properly” instead of relying on customer generosity.

Domino’s is under fire after adding a tipping feature to its online ordering system, with critics saying the pizza chain should “pay staff properly” instead of relying on customer generosity.

But Domino's says the system helps keep its workers safe and there is no obligation to tip.

The new feature gives customers the option to pay a fixed amount or choose their own tip for their “delivery expert” before completing payment.

The move has been met with outrage on social media where some have said Domino’s should “pay staff properly instead”.

Hi neighbours,

John Palino has announced his intention to run in the 2020 general election despite not being in the country.

Palino, who is best known for his three unsuccessful campaigns for Auckland mayor, has signed on as a list candidate for the minor Tea Party.

But Palino is currently based in Florida, United States, after travelling to visit family at the end of last year and deeming it too dangerous to return due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

He says he will run his campaign from there and return if the Tea Party is “lucky and fortunate” to get enough votes.

The Taxpayers and Entrepreneurs Alliance formally registered earlier this year, and is running on a platform of support for business, opposition to capital gains taxes, opposition to recreational drugs, and embracing migration.

Palino was approached to stand by Tea Party co-leader John Hong, who ran alongside Palino in the Auckland race last year.

Do you think the fourth time is the charm for the once mayoral hopeful?
