Letters to the Editor
Letters are one of the most important parts of the paper because this is where the community has a chance to have its say. All letters to the editor received will generally be published, provided they are not defamatory or are covering exactly the same ground by the same writer.
Non du plume are acceptable, but the name, address and contact details must be provided to the editor.

In her weekly article last Saturday, the leader of the opposition, Tina Browne, claimed she had “a team of people ready to tackle the fundamental issues that will generate growth and make people prosperous”.
Just like no one wants to talk about the root cause of climate change – too many humans – no one on Rarotonga wants to talk about the root cause of the chaos on our roads – too many vehicles.
