Throwback Thursday: Rail freight

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The war stifled building development in the 1940s but NZ Railways' new outwards goods
shed went ahead. The concrete structure at the corner of Colombo and Cass streets was the largest building in the South Island when it opened in 1945. If the shed represented rail's dominance in freight… View more
The war stifled building development in the 1940s but NZ Railways' new outwards goods
shed went ahead. The concrete structure at the corner of Colombo and Cass streets was the largest building in the South Island when it opened in 1945. If the shed represented rail's dominance in freight transport, the new Christchurch station, built soon after, symbolised an
expected golden age for passengers. The new goods shed allowed old sheds across the
tracks, and a little to the east, to be demolished, clearing the site for the new station. Who
would think, within 50 years, both would be redundant?

Hi Canterbury,

Would you support the introduction of MMP to local body elections?

A former Labour minister has called on the government to implement MMP as the voting system for local body elections in a bid to 'fix' local government.

Peter Neilson, an economist, is a former Labour MP for Miramar, a Minister of Revenue, Works and Associate Minister of Finance. Neilson explains how MMP could have a positive impact on civic participation after data from Internal Affairs showed a decline in voter turnout.

Around four out of 10 New Zealanders on the electoral role turned out to vote in the last set of local elections. In comparison, around seven or eight out 10 voted in the general election last year.

Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the Northern Outlook.

It’s a time for fine-tuning your skills and pushing the boundaries, catching up with your mates and heading off on new adventures at the drop of a hat! No, we’re not talking about your 20s, we’re talking about your retirement.

Ross’ retirement saw the beginning of his musical journey where his passion quickly evolved from making music, to crafting guitars. It all started when Ross and some mates joined a music group where the camaraderie and togetherness were just as important as the music.

Living in a Ryman village, Ross can continue living life to the full in his retirement because they are places where you don’t retire from life, you find a new way to live .
