"It doesn't get better than today for the mayor of any city," he said, "It's not just Eden Park being the host, it's the whole of the city."

"Already the signs are positive, with residents around Eden Park welcoming the upgrade – which would reduce noise and light emissions despite an increase in seating capacity."

"I look forward to the outcome of the evaluations taking place and I will be working with Government to ensure that Aucklanders and New Zealanders get the best possible result: a world-class stadium we can all be proud of," 

Eh!! what happened to Eden Park being the host and the transport hub and, and, and what about his stupid picture jumping like the dork he is under the posts at Eden Park. 

I think I'll just pop my "Hubbards" on and go for a walk on the beach….Cap Shirt, Hubbards…kinda has a nice ring to it. Can't wait till his new cereal comes out…I believe the working title is "Flip Flops", made from the spine of a jellyfish.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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