OPINION: I'm not avid reader of Mayor Shadbolt's Hotseat column but the headline ''Immigrants should head south'' grabbed me.

I wonder how many families didn't have the family around for Mother's Day, due to the decrease in jobs in Invercargill.

As I skimmed down the page I came across the Grey Power meeting and saw the word poverty and elderly used. Interesting. I wonder who will consider the elderly in the draft annual plan.

Should I hold my breath?
