Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Do you support Wellington bus driver striking?
Wellington bus drivers will strike for 24 hours on Friday, shutting down many key services in the city.
Tramways Union secretary Kevin O’Sullivan said members had ‘just had it’.
Tramways and Public Passenger Transport Employee’s Union’s Wellington Branch gave notice of a total strike at 3am Thursday morning. The strike will start at 4am on Friday, and end at 4am on Saturday.
The ‘surprise’ strike was announced Thursday morning after drivers voted 204-2 in favour of taking industrial action at a meeting on April 14.

Captain John was recently adopted by a family. Here is what they had to say.
"To the wonderful people at SPCA. On Tuesday, Captain John came home with us to his new furever home. Safe to say he has adjusted well and is loving his new life. He has discovered the confines of the kid’s bed.
He is completely calm with three kids and two dogs. Thank you for looking after him until he came to us."
