Greymouth Star pinged

Miriam Richardson

The Westland District Council reported in January that in the peak season 17,000 freedom campers stayed each night on the West Coast (that’s 170,000 over 10 nights).

They issued 47 infringements. 

Neither the Grey nor the Buller District Councils issued any. The Greymouth Star reports.

So 169,953 good campers, 47 bad. Their title: “Freedom campers pinged”.

A prime example of poor and emotive reporting.
