The Youth information Cards produced by the Christchurch Youth Council and supported by the Christchurch City Council have been distributed and all the original points of distribution have been sent a disclaimer.

"We also wanted to be seen to support the excellent initiative of the Christchurch Youth Council and to distribute the information for young people contained in the cards.
"Christchurch City Council is politically neutral and we have sent a clear disclaimer out with the remaining cards, explaining that Council does not support any political party. This disclaimer has been sent to all points where the card was being distributed from."
