Hamilton mayor tries to censor environment report

From Morning Report, 8:49 am on 16 May 2019

The mayor of Hamilton is defending his attempt to veto a report about the environment because it takes a swipe at capitalism and colonisation.

Andrew King says those references in the report are out of place and offensive, but the environmental trust who wrote it says it makes complete sense.
