LET­TER TO THE ED­I­TOR

Auckland City Harbour News - - OPINION -

lead­er­ship shown by Whangarei?

Not hav­ing to­bacco in our com­mu­nity would be so mas­sively ben­e­fi­cial to the health of our ta­mariki, our whanau, all New Zealand’s fu­ture.

Ap­par­ently we have a goal in New Zealand to be smoke­free by 2025, if so we need more coun­cils to show their lead­er­ship and support such a goal, we need more lead­er­ship lo­cally and na­tion­ally to show the rest of the world how lit­tle Aotearoa can deal with an in­dus­try that is killing us.

A co-or­di­nated lo­cal gov­ern­ment re­sponse would be a great step in the right di­rec­tion – imag­ine all coun­cils across the coun­try ask­ing for the same thing – end­ing the abil­ity for a deadly prod­uct to be sold to our peo­ple.
