Po­lit­i­cal ad­ver­tis­ing misses bus

North Shore Times - - FRONT PAGE - DENISE PIPER

Auck­land Trans­port is re­fus­ing to run an ad­ver­tise­ment at bus shel­ters which crit­i­cises Health Min­is­ter Jonathan Cole­man’s ap­proach to men­tal health.

The ads in­clude a photo of Cole­man with com­ments like ‘‘77% of New Zealan­ders want an in­quiry into our men­tal health ser­vices’’ be­fore fin­ish­ing with the sign-off ‘‘I’m not one of them Dr Jonathan Cole­man, your MP’’.

AT said it was up­hold­ing by­laws on elec­tion signs, which spec­ify where they can be.

‘‘The aim of the ads was not to be po­lit­i­cal.’’
