Activist won't back down from NPCA stand by the research that went into the making of the report on the NPCA, and I am asking for a full response to the unanswered questions in that report, Smith said at a press conference Wednesday.
the NPCA has nothing to hide, then let them come public burberry tasker outlet with the documents we have requested, and let them respond directly to the well documented concerns that have occurred since 2013 and continue to this day. assertion remains that the NPCA has strayed far from its mandate. It has become an organization encrusted with a sense of impunity and therefore steadfastly refuses any attempt from citizens for openness, transparency, and fairness. 1. The last demand incenses Smith. the past months, I have been subjected to castigation and ridicule, and now I am being threatened by legal action by my own government, Smith said. I am saddened by this legal threat in its entirety, I wish to draw particular attention to the single point I find most disturbing.

Since then he has himself with community work and his longstanding volunteer work in overseas development. was the chair of the Port Dalhousie Beautification Works Committee until the threat of the lawsuit forced him to resign. I say NPCA, I am talking senior management and the board, Smith said. crews that are in the field and doing their environmental work every day are very dedicated. worked with many of them in my community volunteer work. I know they do their best under the circumstances. am suggesting that the problems start at the senior management levels and go up. have a situation where sitting board members are supposed to be acting in the public trust, but they reward burberry tote bag outlet themselves for being on this board by giving themselves jobs and taking care of close friends. are a lot of questions that need to be answered at the senior management and board levels. I think it needs to be changed. are two cultures in the NPCA that I have witnessed, Smith said. is a culture of fear at the working level. I think that was personified in the firing of two people last week. the senior levels, there is a culture of impunity. They believe no level of government can touch them, and they are free to do what they want. Welland burberry bikini MPP Cindy Forster has also repeatedly called for a forensic audit of the NPCA as well. Niagara two other MPPs, Jim Bradley and Wayne Gates, are supporting her efforts. The Ministry of Natural Resources has said a forensic audit is not part of its mandate unless there are accounting regularities. have identified to the minister staff at least three major accounting irregularities, Smith said. are egregious accounting irregularities in their financial statements that are available online. is not Ed Smith telling you this. I am not qualified to tell you this. I submitted those financial statements to a forensic auditor. Within 30 minutes he outlined accounting irregularities. He said if his firm had done this audit, they would have disqualified it right now. governance boards have a responsibility to disclose related party transactions, Smith was told. Boards are not allowed to give contracts to board members. If for some reason they are compelled to do that, the board has to disclose it in financial statements. is not on the auditor Grant Thornton to find that out, Smith said. NPCA has to come forward and publicly disclose it. There have been burberry boutique numerous related party transactions at the NPCA. None of them have been disclosed. We have evidence on all of them. said the contracts are in the $40,000 and $50,000 range.
