The True Meaning of HR

Acting on a tip that Mayor Campion and Acting Mayor Konc where going to bring up the months-long delay of allgations concerning the abuse of public funds for self-promotion without Authorization.

The allegations swirled around Regional councilor and NPCA Board member, Anthony Quirk, as can be seen in the accompanying image.

In all, there seems to be 3 politicians under allegations of abusing the public purse.

Along with Quirk there is also Dave Barrick and Sandy Annunziata both Regional councilors and NPCA Board members. 

No sooner had Mayor Campion even mentioned the allegations when the NPCA Board Chair Annunziata ruled the that allegations of corruption is an Human Resources matter and must be discussed behind closed doors (In Camera); in secret and well hidden from the Hapless Citizens. 

The true meaning of HR is 'Hide Responsibility! 

They call themselves Fiscal Conservatives but it appears to many People that they are no more than squalid chiselers of the public purse.

Contemptible Corruption Continues

There you have Folks!

Proof positive that the Niagara Regional Government is Corrupt to the core.

The effort of our local newspaper, The Standard, has been stonewalled by our Regional Regime.

The Regimes contemptible excuses amounts to nothing less than a clear indication that they think that the Citizen has no right to know how the Citizen's hard earned money is being spent!

Regional Council, May 24, 2018 and still no mention or examination of contemptible corruption!

See what those we have elected and hired have to say by checking out the comment section at the bottom of our previous articles at:

Was it always this way in Canada or just when did government contempt toward citizens start? 

Was it always this way or just when government assets become more important than a Citizens assets? 

Have government contemptibles  always considered themselves more entitled than their constituents or is contempt a new phenomenon predicated on pomposity?  

This particular story of contempt starts with the erosion of the Lake Erie Shoreline and the loss of small cottage homes. For some unknown reason governments in Canada will install stone shoreline protection to protect government assets but not to protect lake front private cottage homes.

Strangely enough that same government will install shoreline protection of the ensuing road after the Citizen's assets are destroyed!

Take the case of Mr. Gary Hunter retired and on a fixed income. He and his neighbors get a sudden notice to vacate their cottage homes. Mr. Hunter will be saddled with the balance of his $35,000.00 mortgage on a none existing home.
The absurdity of the situation lies in the fact that the government will still be obligated to install shoreline protection to save the road that is currently in front of Mr. Hunter's cottage and as they already have  done along the same shoreline!

If anyone thinks that accusing our elected and hired help is overreach they must not be paying attention!

While our self-serving authorities are showing their contempt for Canadian Citizens, we are plagued by 'Foul Mouthed Lying Bullies', Mischievous Criminals and Machiavellian  Louts scrounging for every nickle they can chisel out of Taxpayers hard earned money!

Government contempt for the Citizen leads to even more abuse and is the reason for Citizens to be more aware as to what government is up to! Contempt is the reason for recall legislation and term limits. Term limits to modify contempt and Recall if term limits fail. 

No doubt there are a lot of specious excuses for not coming to the aid of Mr. Hunter and his neighbors but excuses fly in the face of lost or stolen $Millions or even the constant squalid nickle & dime maneuvering being committed by our authorities!

Strategic War on Corruption and Crime

Corruption and crime has been and is still escalating in our governments!

Individual Citizens and Citizen Groups operating individually in their private silos have had little to no effect in stemming the tide of crime and corruption or the ever-growing government overreach.

Operating as individual platoons is perfect as long as they also channel their effort to the common cause. The greatest weapon against crime and corruption among governments and government agencies is information.

Anyone doubting the level of crime and corruption need only to follow everyday news reports. In the Region of Niagara alone we are suffering $100 of millions missing or unaccounted for. We have hungry and wasteful governments and empire-building government agencies financially abusing Citizens! We have slovenly governments developing astonishing and extraordinary rules and regulations deliberately designed to allow more abuse of Citizens.

Criminals are breaching all levels of our government and we the people are letting it happen by hiding our light under a bushel; by failing to publicly expose the corrupt and by failing to publicly challenging corrupt activities!

Oh! Sure, we are battling in isolation from our groups and associations and even secretive groups but with limited effect.  The criminal abusers are still brazenly operating behind legal cover while ‘well-intentioned folk’ organize and strategize during their traditional monthly meetings. 

The bravest try to challenge the rigged legal system in courtrooms steeped with conflicted interest that sadly serve your/our very same adversary.

 Although it is very important for our champions to continue their efforts of sorting through the legalities/illegalities of corrupt authorities and the vital importance of our supporting their efforts there is a second front that seems to be overlooked.

That second front is the necessity to shine light on any scoundrel or cabal of scoundrels hiding in the dark adversely affecting the well-being of society. It's exposure they hate and it's Social Media that terrifies them. Social media and Bloggers drive them crazy!

For instance, our dozens of Conservation Authorities present themselves as 'angels of the environment' while hiding the fact that they control who can and who cannot present to their board of directors; their conduct when abusing Citizens and hiding their proclivities from municipal authorities and worse, hiding their exploitation of citizens from the public.

In Niagara we take on anyone and every governing body that’s acts inappropriately. The fact that we have been attacked for our efforts says it all. The Articles we publish are public for all to read and for all to respond. Our record speaks for itself. Log on to News Alert Niagara to get a sense of what we are up to and how we are going about exposing crime, corruption and misadventure.

Despots Attack FREE SPEECH

There you have it!

Carmen D’Angelo (CAO Niagara Region and former CAO NPCA) wants to shut down free speech! As seen in the Standard story regarding a cabal of suspect politicians making specious demands on media we find D’Angelo demanding that media ‘eliminate anonymous comment postings’! 

What kind of Conservation Agency forces their personnel to sign a ‘non-disclosure clause’ and then threatens and sues them for speaking out. Other than financially harming and even destroying innocent citizens what the hell has a conservation agency to hide that could possibly be of a sensitive nature?

Is this the reason that CAO D’Angelo and his ilk are so concerned that NPCA personnel or any citizen from any situation might have an opportunity to anonymously spill the beans on any scenario?

Perhaps we owe D’Angelo and his ilk our gratitude for definitively demonstrating the political bent of our elected authorities to squelch free speech and public dialogue.

And why not?

When our suspiciously silent politicians are more comfortable sitting on their ass up to their chins in corruption and financial sewage than they are in standing up for their constituents then of course they prefer to control free speech or as D’Angelo puts it “Control Bloggers’.

Niagara: Kingdom of Corruption

Long before we had our sparkling new Burgoyne high level bridge connecting East and West St. Paul Street in St. Catharines, Ontario, 'News Alert Niagara' sounded the Alarm as to the seriously deteriorating condition of the valiant century old former structure.

People were gratified with the announcement that the bridge replacement would be moved up by 7 years.

Niagara Citizens were stunned to discover how the price of the new bridge spiraled out of control to the tune of $tens of millions driving the price from $59Million to over $100Million!

Along comes 2016 and we are treated to ridiculous bovine waste of ‘those in control at the time are no longer with our 'regional government' so we’ll just have to make sure it doesn’t happen again!’

Our response to this dismissive rhetoric was ‘BULLSHIT’! 

Anyone that has had anything to do with these gargantuan losses need to be dragged back, identified and held accountable! Find out who is responsible for lost documents!

It’s bad enough when you have a cock-up of $hundreds or even $thousands but when the losses range into $TENS OF MILLIONS the question must be raised: where the hell is the outrage?

To date we have the regime’s task force's internal probe, a value-for-money audit and a forensic audit. There is also an Ontario Provincial Police investigation.


Did they do a personal forensic audit on those in control or is that reserved for non-government people? Is there any chance that unaccountable $Millions would be overlooked if those in charge were not regime personnel?


Now years later we have the so-called ‘task force’ calling for an investigation into the investigation! 

They are also calling on the City of St. Catharines for help with the missing records. The city politicians are more interested in their own political persona than they are in the missing $Millions of taxpayer dollars.

So, 'News Alert Niagara' braved another personal appearance to the first Regional Regime Council meeting following the Standard's report to witness what should have been an explosion of concern for missing and unaccounted $millions of taxpayer money! 

Sorry but Nothing!

They did mention that the Audit Committee would be meeting at 9:30 AM Monday so we stalled the posting of this article to report on the explosion of concern that would surely occur.

Nope Notta, zip, zilch!

However, all was not lost! Following the audit report the councilors did show concern regarding municipalities exceeding their debt limit and who would suffer the burden in case of a default as pointed out at the 57 Minute Mark.

So once again we are being told to let bygones be bygones predicated on $Tens of millions of hard earned tax dollars unaccounted for but fear not because "we have better oversight now"!

Sadly, it appears that there are several suspected projects with more unaccounted $Millions. In fact, there are many projects of questionable necessity other than to be used for fleecing the taxpayer.

To put it succinctly the regime’s proffered excuses are pathetic!

This silent Council is in charge and this silent council failed in its duty to safe-guard the Taxpayer’s hard-earned money! At best this apathetic Council allowed incompetency or worse the distinct possibility of criminal activity. Silence is consent!

Those in charge are the people the Citizens of Niagara hired and elected to faithfully discharge their duties. The last CAO of Niagara committed perjury in court documents and now our current CAO is also under investigation for Corruption

Although common in all levels of Canadian Government the costly time wasted on political intrigue and criminal activity is totally unacceptable. 

The Citizen has no ability to correct the activities of the hired help. That is what we voted this obviously inept and failed council to do. 

However the voter can and must use their power of the vote in an attempt to acquire better councilors who will do the job.

Niagara’s War on Media

The St. Catharines Standard Newspaper finally reported on the effort put forth by NPCA CAO, now Regional Government CAO Carmen D’Angelo and his cronies to have press personnel fired.

Is this not the same guy that received judicial rebuke for his shabby and failed effort to sue Major Smith on behalf of himself and the corrupt Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority? (NPCA)

Is this not the same guy who physically assaulted ‘News Alert Niagara’ media person Preston Haskell?

Is this not the same guy who threatened Preston Haskell with a lawsuit instead of attempting to correct any contentious issue on the available comment section provided below each article of ‘News Alert Niagara’.

Is this not the same guy who ordered the confiscation of media notebooks, computers and recorders from the media desk of Regional Council?

Is this not the same guy who headed up the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) financial assault on Niagara Citizens?

Now this same guy and his cronies cry foul demanding that the media fire personnel over their claim of ‘Fake News’. 

Carmen D’Angelo and his ilk may think he is an asset to our Niagara Regional Regime but many including ‘News Alert Niagara’ are not so sure.

PS: If Carmen D'Angelo and ilk don't like media attention they should cut the corruption!
