A Brief One from Niagara At Large reporter and publisher Doug Draper
Posted July 23rd, 2018
In the wake of an Ontario Ombudsman’s report this past July 18th, condemning the seizure by Niagara regional officials of reporters’ computers and notes, followed by their expulsion last December from municipal property, calls have been mounting across Niagara for the resignations of the Region’s CAO, Carmen D’Angelo, and Region’s Chair, Al Caslin.
One of those many calls is coming from retired senior Niagara Regional Police officer Peter Gill, who has recently registered his name to run in St. Catharines for a seat on Niagara regional council.
Peter Gill posted the following on his Facebook page –
By the way, The National Post is by no means the only large media organization to run a story or editorial on this disgusting episode in our Niagara region. There has been coverage in The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star and on CBC, just to mention a few.
Thanks so much to Niagara Region’s Chair and CAO for the part they have played in drawing this negative coverage for our region!
For this too, they both deserve to go.
For a bit more on Peter Gill and his bit to win a regional council seat in this coming October 22nd municipal elections, the following has also been making the rounds on social media –
