From Doug Draper
Posted July 27th, 2018 on Niagara At Large
It has been a wild and crazy last full week of July, ending with Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s decision to, among other things, pull the plug on what would have been the first time Niagara voters get a chance in a municipal election to choose who will serve as Niagara Region’s chair.
That decision triggered waves of email, news releases and statements from parties all over the region, and we did not get around to preparing and posting commentary on other matters, including the ongoing controversy over the hiring of Niagara Region’s CAO, the Ontario Ombudsman’s report on an attack on Niagara’s media last December, and the highly anticipated results of a provincial audit of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s operations.
Niagara At Large joined other media in attending a Niagara regional council meeting this July 27th in which a few of these issues were raised and debated, and we will have news and commentary on what emerged from that meeting and elsewhere early in the coming week.
Please stay with us for this and in the meantime, have a great weekend.
