A Brief One from Niagara At Large publisher Doug Draper
Posted April 18th, 2017 on Niagara At Large
Ed Smith, a Niagara, Ontario community activist and retired Canadian Armed Force officer who is facing a lawsuit in his pursuit of answers to questions and concerns many area residents, municipal councillors and MPPs are raising about the way the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) does business with our tax money, is scheduled to be a quest on CKTB’s Tim Denis Show this Wednesday, April 19th for a segment to air sometime between 8:30 and 9 a.m.
Smith has described the defamation suit, filed against him earlier this year by the NPCA and its former CAO (now the CAO for Niagara’s regional government) Carmen D’Angelo, an assault against him and to all citizens who dare to exercise their democratic right to question the way government does business.
He vows to win the case against him and has more recently filed a counter suit against the NPCA and its former board chair, St. Catharines regional councillor Bruce Timms, for allegedly damaging his character.
You can find CKTB’s Tim Denis Show on the AM band of your radio at 610 on your dial.
Niagara At Large plans to have a link to pod cast of the radio segment featuring Ed Smith posted later in the day.
