There was a time when I dismissed Cam Slater. I thought of him as one of those highly politicised crack-pots who seek to glorify everything that one party does, while demonising all acts and utterances of the other.
But my view has changed. I now think that in a way, this whole Covid business has been the making of Cameron Slater.
In his latest post on The BFD, he writes with evident passion and conviction. But his words also ring with honesty, compassion and vision. Compassion for his fellow countrymen and women and a vision for New Zealand and our society that I have to say, I share.
Acknowledging that it is never easy, Slater challenges us all to choose to be courageous in the face of fear and to never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense.
