The decision by the City Council to retain City Care should be greeted by all rate payers in Christchurch with relief.
That said, it should never have been on the list to sell in the first place. Sadly, we have a few Councillors who seem wedded to an outmoded and demonstrably wrong model of governmental agencies. It's good to see that the Council has backed away from that flawed notion. What is it, and why is it so dangerous to the future of our city?
