Craig Spaulding started this petition to The Dominion Post. and

A front page article in the Dominion Post (02/09/20) referenced a survey on voting preferences for the upcoming referendum on the legalisation of cannabis. The result of the survey was approximately 50/50.

Luke Malpass and Thomas Manch- the author's- sought comment from the 'Nope to Dope' spokesperson and his opinion was reported. The absence of any comment from any 'Yes' organisation (of which there are several) suggests no opinion was sought from advocates for law reform and progress.

Citizens of a 'free' country such as New Zealand should not have to argue for balanced coverage of political/social issues from a political editor of a major news organ; it should be a given. The Dominion Post must balance it's apparent servitude to it's advertisers- in particular the alcohol industry- with fair reporting for the consumers of their product: the reader.
