Tariana Turia's contributions to smokefree Aotearoa

Celebrating Minister Tariana Turia's contributions to a smokefree Aotearoa 2025


After a long career in NZ politics, the Honourable Tariana Turia will be stepping down from her parliamentary duties. Tariana has been a vocal opponent of the tobacco industry and has become a powerful driving force in supporting the aspiration of a smoke-free Aotearoa-NZ to by 2025. Introducing higher excise taxes, banning tobacco displays, promoting smoke-free cars and introducing plain packaging has led to Tariana becoming a recent recipient of the 2014 World Health Organisation (WHO) ‘World No Tobacco Day’ award.

To honour Tariana’s undying commitment to ‘Auahikore’ the tobacco control sector has organised a farewell to acknowledge not only her work within the sector, but to celebrate her commitment to Whānau Ora, her dedication to her people and her steadfast integrity maintained throughout her public life.

Zoe Martin-Hawke the Manager of Te Ara Hā Ora, part of Hapai Te Hauora Tapui charged with creating leadership around tobacco control believes ‘Tariana’s positive impact on Auahikore will be felt for many years after she leaves parliament. Her integral role in tobacco control will be sorely missed, however, it is now up to the rest of us to ensure we maintain Tariana’s high standards and achieve her vision.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
