What do you think of the changing laws around Māori wards?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

Northland Regional Council is unlikely to run a binding poll on its controversial Māori ward proposal, after a new law will do away with the polls. The same law clashes with Whangārei District Council's www.stuff.co.nz...
|need to advertise a binding poll| on Māori wards, forcing the council to cancel the poll two days later. The petition-triggered polls consistently overturn proposals for Māori wards, and are considered fundamentally unfair, as no other wards or representation changes can be cancelled in this way. What do you think?

We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Northern News

Hi neighbours,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Keep me WARM every Winter

Alison Shrigley Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

Help us find forever homes for our beautiful adult cats. They have passed through their cheeky kitten stage, know how to use a litterbox all the time and are just happy curling up with you on the couch as opposed to kitten zoomies around the lounge!!! All our adult cats are available for a KOHA and just want a place of their own to curl up in and sleep the days away.
