Thanks to Regional Councilor Baty the outrage of the corrupt Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) continues.
Peeling back the layers of this horror story we uncover a miscreant with a sordid history involving treacherous behind the scenes dealing not in the best interest of the environment and certainly not in the best interest of Niagara Citizens!
Regional Councilor Baty made himself famous as head of the CORK Committee when they actually banned the Public from their Public Forum!
That's right folks. Authoritarian Councilor Baty deliberately tried to block Niagara Citizens from presenting their concerns to the Regional Council at council meetings and in the Public's Council Chamber!
At the time 'News Alert Niagara' asked: 'How can anyone in good conscious vote for people who would consider Niagara Citizens with such contempt? In fact how can anyone respect any Regional Councillor who would protect their ‘Country Club’ from those they refer to as the ‘great unwashed’ whose presence at Council might just interrupt their co-called peaceful, amenable and orderly deliberations?'
The next time Councilor Baty came to our attention was when the Pelham Town Council took
him to task for throwing his Pelham Constituents under his NPCA bus!
Now we find this 'Dirty Dozen' miscreant is not only a failure on the corrupt NPCA Board, The questionable NPCF Board, but also a failure as a Niagara Regional Council!
Councilor Baty perfectly fits the definition of 'Freedom Fighter' because he fights against freedom every chance he gets!
Donors to the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Foundation (NPCF) who thought their money was going to conserving land, planting trees, protecting the watershed or any of the other environmental actions that Conservation Authorities normally do, should be demanding refunds from the NPCF since its board spent exactly NOTHING on those activities. Instead, they spent 88% on fundraising and 10% on management/administration. Hopefully the 2% ($3,500) they gave gave away to other groups actually went to real conservation work. Since government funding accounted for $64,750 (31%) of the NPCF's revenue, taxpayers should also be asking why our money is being used to help them throw parties that cost a total of $199,266 in 2017.
