What do you want Christchurch to be? The demolition crews are still at work but the future beckons.

There are so many aspects that will shape the future face of Christchurch and debate is raging.

Feature writer John McCrone reckons its time to ditch the Garden City slogan, while mayor Lianne Dalziel is busy making 'resilient' a buzz word. The city council has even advertised for a chief resilience officer.

Is Christchurch heading in the right direction? What needs to be done first? What should the city embrace?
