Cheers not Jeers for Cycle Trail

I wonder how the opposition are going to take the news that the very thing they have been bagging since 2009 has now won an international award:


The New Zealand Cycle Trail has been recognised as one of the best in the world.

It was one of three international winners at the International Trails Symposium in Arizona last night. 

The Honourable Mention award recognises the trail as an outstanding initiative that demonstrates planning, design and implementation and contributes to the international trails movement.

It will feature more than 2,500 kilometres of diverse trails that explore all parts of New Zealand’s landscape.

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.
