Royal Forest and Bird: EFB would cease their operations

The Royal Forest and Bird Society submission shows how draconian the attack against freedom of speech the Electoral Finance Bill has become.

[quote]The present definition of election advertising is too wide. It includes [ cl5(1)(iii) ]: 
[quote]taking a position on a proposition with which 1 or more parties or 1 or more candidates is associated.[/quote]   
 
This definition would clearly include Forest and Bird’s legitimate public advocacy on all of the issues listed above. If the definition of election advertising is not amended the majority of our work would have to cease during an election year.[/quote]

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.
