Yesterday was Waitangi Day, the day we commemorate the signing of New Zealand's founding document the Treaty of Waitangi. Things were relatively quiet this year, although there was the issue of the media being banned from the lower Te Tii Marae, and the Prime Minister Bill English not showing up to Waitangi on the day. On Sunday, Vice New Zealand held a special panel discussion on Waitangi Day. Reporter Sam Smith went along and filed this report.
