A Call-Out to Everyone from Niagara At Large reporter and publisher Doug Draper to View the Video of a Vote that has Raised the Stakes for Public Accountability at the NPCA
Posted December 7th, 2017 on Niagara At Large
Motion calling for a supervisor to come in and clean up NPCA operations was tabled by Port Colborne city councilor Barbara Butters. It was the first of its kind to be passed by a municipal council in Niagara and possibly not the last.
Niagara, Ontario – This past Monday, November 27th, Port Colborne’s city council became the first municipal council in Niagara – and hopefully not the last – to call on the Ontario government to appoint a special supervisor to take over operations at an NPCA many across our region believe has lost its way as a voice for environmental conservation and has gone rogue.
It took more than a week, but a video of the Port Colborne council session finally became available on the city’s website and Niagara At Large has cut it down to that segment that begins with Port Colborne city councilor Barbara Butters reading her motion, calling on the Ontario government to appoint a supervisor, and follows with presentations by Niagara citizen Ed Smith and other citizens, representatives for the NPCA, and finally a debate on the motion and vote by members of council.
Niagara At Large is posting the entire segment because we believe that watching it will give anyone still wondering what the controversy swirling around the NPCA all these many months is about, will get a much clearer understanding of what it is about through what unfolds at this Port Colborne council meeting.
