Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board deputy chairman Aaron Campbell told Nor’West News last week he would like to see alcohol bans extended to include areas such as Elmwood Park, Sam MacDonald Roto Kohatu Reserve in Harewood, and McLeans Island. However, board chairman Sam MacDonald contacted Nor’West News to say other members on the board, including himself, do not support Mr Campbell’s view. Mr MacDonald believes the board needs to be careful about becoming a “nanny-state” to residents and “imposing unnecessary and punitive rules when there doesn’t appear to be an issue.” “He is entitled to his view, but that would mean taking away the right for people who play touch on Elmwood Park and have a social beer, it would be restricting that kind of stuff,” said Mr MacDonald. •Turn to page 5 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored... friendly cleaning products.
