    From a tourist town... to a homeless town

    From a tourist town... to a homeless town


    This from the MP for Rotorua -- who's accusing the Government of trashing the region.

    It follows news Kainga Ora spent more than eight million dollars to buy a Rotorua motel to temporarily house 80 people.

    National's Todd McClay says Rotorua's spent more than a decade building its reputation as a tourism hub.

    He says now, there are as many as 60 motels with homeless people in them - and more than two-thousand homeless people in Rotorua.
