Throughout his life, John has been involved in a lot of New Zealand issues, such as the 1981 Springbok Tour and brought many wonderful insights into the issue of housing, particularly as it related to Canterbury housing post-earthquake and the social justice implications our current housing crisis has for many families.

There was a lot of robust discussion around the table that produced a critical exploration about how the many social justice issues are interlinked – such as income inequality, taxes and housing itself. We would like to thank John for taking the time to come and present on this pressing social justice issue in the community and we would like to also thank all those who came and participated.
