No shakeup at the Parks
From the Niagara Falls Review:
There are no plans to shake up the Niagara Parks Commission, Tourism Minister Monique Smith says.
In an interview Tuesday, she brushed off a Conservative critic’s claim that replacing the whole board is the only way to restore public confidence in the government agency.
“We have no intention of replacing the board,” Smith said about how the Liberal government is responding to 11 pages of recommendations in a report she requested looking into how the parks commission is run.
The Niagara Parks Commission Governance Review called for “fundamental changes” in who is appointed to the parks commission and the process for appointing them.
Smith, however, was not specific about how the Liberal government will handle that recommendation or when.
“We’ll be working with the commission to determine the implementation,” she said.
