EQC was 'doomed to fail' minister says - were you affected?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

The Earthquake Commission was doomed to fail following the Canterbury earthquakes because of a lack of planning, resourcing and expertise, EQC Minister Grant Robertson says.

New legislation will be introduced next year to modernise Earthquake Commission (EQC) laws to prevent communities suffering “years of trauma and uncertainty” following a natural disaster, the Government says.

Calling all Halloween enthusiasts - we'd love to hear from you

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hi Cantabrians,

Are you, your children or grandchildren getting involved in Halloween this year? Stuff and The Press newspaper would love to hear from you.

We are hoping to find out how things may be a little bit different for Halloween this year due to Covid-19, and to see how people are still pushing through with their celebrations.

Will you be wearing a face mask with your costume? Or offering hand sanitiser to trick or treaters? Whatever it is you're up to, we'd love to hear about it.

Please comment below or email jake.kenny@stuff.co.nz if you are celebrating Halloween this year and would like to share how.

Thanks in advance folks!
