Interesting that our fearless leaders of the Niagara Regional Regime refused to ask the trusted Ontario Ombudsman's Office to dig into the details of the hiring process regarding the former CAO of the corrupt Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority, Carmen D'Angelo.
Instead they opted to hire a private law firm stating that the private law firm could and would respond faster.
And they where right! But did the private law firm of ADR Chambers do the job if short cuts were taken.
According to the St. Catharines Standard Newspaper: 'Law firm hired by Region did not contact key sources from Standard’s investigation into the CAO’s hiring'.
'Key sources The Standard spoke to during its investigation say Huberman did not contact them. At least one reached out to provide Huberman with information on the condition of anonymity'.
It appears that CAO, Carmen D'Angelo and his cohorts running the Regional Regime got exactly what they paid for; with Taxpayer money.
They got a report just sufficient enough to partially quiet the discontent among concerned councilors and many thoroughly disgusted Niagara Citizens.
This sordid situation exposes just how much goes on behind the Citizen's back. Citizens of Niagara are growing concerned with the deliberate obfuscation of what is really going on.
Why does 'News Alert Niagara' take this opposing position on Mr. Huberman's very wanting examination of the Niagara Regime's Machiavellian machinations
Perhaps the answer lies in The Standard report outlined in their story as shown below:
"The Standard has learned Toronto lawyer Marvin J. Huberman — assigned to the case by legal firm ADR Chambers which was hired by regional council — did not contact key sources that provided information to The Standard during a months-long investigation into the 2016 hiring of Carmen D'Angelo."
Hiding in plain sight is 'News Alert Niagara' a public entity known by over 260,000 blog page-viewers of hundreds of stories many of which 'out' the corrupt NPCA and in some cases exposing its former CAO Carmen D'Angelo.
Did Mr. Huberman look for information from other sources? Did he make a public call for others to come forward with information?
Mr. Hubermen would have discovered D'Angelo is a man who supported extraordinary abuse of Niagara Property owners, a man who physically assaulted a photo-journalist, a man that stole a media person's equipment over 7 months ago and still has not returned it.
Mr. Huberman would have learned that D'Angelo and his NPCA sued a private Niagara Citizen which elicited Judge Ramsey to exclaim: "There are many places in the world where I might expect such a thing to happen, but not in our beloved Dominion.”
In one article alone Mr. Huberman would have developed questions as to why some on our Niagara Regime are so invested in their hire of D'Angelo.
The most meaningful question inadvertently raised by Mr. Huberman was; 'what does it say about a government regime that frightens and threatens its members from giving testimony in an inquiry into improper practices of the Regime?'
The fact is that Mr. Huberman failed in the very efforts for which he was paid (with Taxpayer money) and contrary to Councilor Gale's shameful slam against Standard reporter, Grant LaFleche, who actually did the job (without Taxpayer money).
Councillors passed a motion that said council now considers the matter closed. Really! Perhaps the Citizens will have something to say about this 'Matter' in the upcoming election!
P.S. Some in the Regional Regime say an apology is in order. They are absolutely Correct! The Niagara Regional Regime owes an apology to the Citizens of Niagara!
