How did we go from Niagara Regional Council saying “Take your complaints elsewhere” to successfully forcing an audit of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) with exposure in Hamilton Spectator and CBC National News
Seems like only yesterday when Dave Honey, President of the Niagara Landowners Association (NLA) made his historic plea before the Niagara Regional Government regarding the appalling treatment of Niagara Property Owners at the Hands of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA).
It all started when the unaccountable Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority turned into a tyrannical and grasping empire-building institution hell bent on illegally taking power over private property.
While the NPCA was attacking every little infraction on the part of Property Owners, the very same NPCA was aiding and abetting Developers in the destruction of Provincially Significant Wetlands (PSW).
Working on behalf of the Niagara Regional Government the morally bankrupt NPCA made a fatal error in deciding to destroy the SPW slough forest known as ‘Thundering waters’. This brought together several organized groups on the same mission. Their mission was to fight against the obvious corruption of the NPCA.
Sadly it is the total failure of the NPCA board of directors (All Politicians) that has brought us to this tragic state of affairs!
