The Bill is being amended.

In the words of Pastor Mike Witenberg from this afternoon’s rally, “it is a sugar-pill to help swallow the bitter pill”.

In the words of Craig Smith, it is a capitulation by National.

In my own words, it might give police discretion, but it still gives CYPFS too much discretion.

Gentlemen,

This is not the conclusion that I personally wanted.  But it is evidence of the pressure that the government has been under on this issue, since this is the third back-down on the bill in the past couple of months.
