Transit $2.5 million over budget in legal services

Labours 2003 Land Transport Management Act is being used by Transit to actually block development .
 
Transit has a veto to block development if they think it will add undue pressure to "their" roads they are supposed to be building.
 
Instead they are more than $2.5 million over budget in their legal services busily opposing development to keep people off of the roads they haven't and apparently don't want to build.
 
They have even block development of a Ministry of Education school in Queenstown.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
