Te Runanga a Iwi o Ngapuhi has told parliament's social services committee the Oranga Tamariki (Children, Young, Person and their Families) Bill isn't what Ngapuhi needs or expects.

Chair Raniera Tau says more work is needed on the Bill to reflect the role that whanau, hapu and iwi are expected to play in the raising of tamariki, even in difficult circumstances.

He says Ngapuhi agrees with Minister Anne Tolley the safety of tamariki is paramount, but as a treaty partner it wants the Crown to work with the iwi as partners for the health and wellbeing of tamariki and whanau.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
