2019 Annual Conference Report

October 15, 2019

Energized and encouraged from our fantastic conference in Wellington this weekend this thought of the week has been a couple of days in the making. Our theme………Let’s Fix This in 2020.

Seasoning Extremism With Realism

October 02, 2019

With new "data" continuing to emerge in regards to the effects of climate change on our nation, it is important that we don’t portray the extreme, almost impossible scenarios as inevitable reality.

Abortion. Government's Proposals.

August 04, 2019

Our current government is looking at changing the abortion legislation to make it abortion on demand for the first 20 weeks and then a test after that, but this ignores the question of when life starts, and that there is more than one person involved in an abortion.

An Interesting Week in Politics

June 12, 2019

It’s only Thursday but it has already been an interesting week in politics. We started with two polls, with a supposedly margin of error of 3.5%, 20% different. One showed National surging ahead of Labour and the other showed Labour able to govern alone.

Guilty! Until Proven Innoocent

May 28, 2019

Assumption of innocence has always been a foundation of New Zealand’s criminal justice system. It is protected under the NZ Bill of Rights Act 1990. In 2017 Christchurch East MP, Poto Williams, raised the idea of putting the burden of proof on the accused in the case of rape. Are we seeing an insidious change taking place?

 

Weekly Thought - A Few

May 16, 2019

A few thoughts to stimulate the brain this week. 

Drugs kill and hurt far more people every year than firearms, so why is the government criminalising firearm owners and decriminalising drugs?

Under the End of Life Choice Act, if passed, will Pharmac fund cancer treatment for the “terminally ill” at thousands of dollars a month, when a lethal injection costs just $50?

Are we Fighting the Right Climate War

May 11, 2019

With the introduction of the Net Zero emissions targets this week, more uncertainty and pressure has been added to both our agriculture and manufacturing industries, and for what result? It would make little to no difference to the world’s environment while penalising and crippling NZ industries.

End Poverty? How?

April 28, 2019

An idealistic and socialist government commits to “End Poverty” and “build 100,000 houses in 10 years.” The question of how is not asked and definitely not answered.Ending poverty is a lofty goal and one applauded by the masses, but....

Israel Meant No Harm

April 14, 2019

Mr Folau lives in Australia which has very similar health and safety laws to New Zealand. The basis is a duty of care creating an expectation of action, whether this is warning of a hazard, or taking preventative measures to protect others or yourself from harm.

Emotion a Poor Foundation for Decisions

March 27, 2019

We have probably all done it, made that emotive purchase, be it the shoes, the motorbike, or the section, and then woken up later going, “Whoops!!”

No Assault is OK!

March 21, 2019

Christchurch’s cowardly Mosque attacks were not the only assaults that occurred last week, and it is how we responded to another two that I wish to comment on today.

Students Striking for Climate Change

March 15, 2019

With students striking over the Government’s perceived lack of action on the climate, it is probably a good time to challenge them on what they are personally doing to reduce the negative effects that their lives may be having on the environment.
