A Comment to Niagara At Large from Bob Milenkoff, a resident in the Niagara, Ontario community of Welland who, along with many other residents across Niagara, has been pressing for more openness and accountability from the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority
Posted September 26th, 2018
(St. Catharines) Regional Councillor Bruce Timms (who is also member and former chair of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s board of directors) once stated that the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) was a model agency for all Conservation Authorities across Ontario to follow, and that to have an audit done would be a waste of taxpayers’ money.
That money (Timms insisted) would be better spent on planting trees.
This Thursday, September 27 when the Auditor General releases her report on the NPCA audit we will all find out if there was any truth to Mr. Timms statement.
