Niagara's unindicted Co-Conspirators

It's hard to believe that there are Niagara Authorities that have generated such an overwhelming amount of bad press and still manage to avoid criminal indictment!

A great deal of the bad press wraps around the corrupt conduct of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA)

Click HERE to peruse the most outrageous and disgusting atrocity perpetrated on innocent Niagara Citizens by the corrupt NPCA as allowed by the above co-conspirators on the NPCA board .

All ten of the above NPCA board members bring their pitiful leadership malevolence to our Niagara Regional regime by their participation as Regional Councilors. 

It gets worse! We also have the former NPCA CAO Carmen D`Angelo who has been elevated to the CAO position for the region not to mention that Regional Councilor Dave Barrick is an NPCA executive!

Irony lies in the fact that all the silent miscreants of misery involved in corrupt conduct now expect our VOTE!

$Million Dollar Miscreants NIAGARA


Dateline August 23,1018
The shabby politics of our Niagara Regional Regime has deteriorated to the point that a concerned Citizens had to blast Chair Caslin from the gallery (during recess) in order to get Chair Caslin to back down from his ridiculous opinion that he alone has dictatorial powers. 

What is not so clear is the cult-like support and their misplaced loyalty for their sordid CAO Carman D`Angelo especially in the face of overwhelming evidence of his stunning behavior.


With dozens of reports supplied to the Niagara Regional Regime and its Councilors covering D`Angelo's tenure as CAO of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority, its unimaginable too many just how he was chosen for the regime's top job.

What is not surprising is the NPCA board members/Regional Councilors doing their best to impede any attempt to reconcile the situation.

Councilor Celina Volpatti lamented in the August 22,2018 Edition of 'The Voice' "What offends me the most is how they destroy a person in public. This is a man [CAO Carmen D`Angelo] with a family. They are destroying a person for a political motive." 

We'll have to assume that Councilor Volpatti was unaware of the destruction Carmen D`Angelo visited on so many innocent Niagara families; bankrupting families; destroying marriages during his tenure  as NPCA CAO.
.
May we suggest enlightening reading: An Extraordinarily Disgusting Story


No one is trying to destroy D`Angelo for political reasons! Frustrated Regional Councilors are fighting to restore Citizen's lost confidence caused by the appearance of corruption, backroom dealing and possible criminal activity!

D`Angelo obtained his position by nefarious means and now he is busy bringing his malevolent brand of governance to OUR (not Caslin's nor D`Angelo's) Niagara Regional Government!
CAO Carmen D`Angelo is already a $Million dollar miscreant with the cost for 8 special council meetings. Niagara Regional Council has spent an inordinate amount of expensive council time trying to address CAO D`Angel's unlawful and ignorant Conduct.

Niagara's Fight for Truth

Dateline August 16, 2018
Another special meeting of Niagara Regional.
Another special waste of time!


Even with the the special meeting being called for 2:PM on a working day concerned folk filled the gallery only to be treated as a prop for councilors to propagandize.

Acting Chair Kelly Edgar struggled to hold the meeting together in the face of disrespect and grandstanding leaving the greater part of the open council meeting being described by one spectator as a 'bozo eruption'!

There were councilors spouting veiled support for the miscreants at the center of the 'crises' and other councilors trying to remind council why the special meeting was called in the first place.


Fact: A Government that can't purge itself of Miscreants is a danger to the public. 


Perhaps the highlight moment was delivered by Councilor Heit at the 1:23 mark of the wasted special meeting pointing out the fact that no questions could be answered because the collective miscreants with the answers were a 'NO-SHOW'.

Conclusion: This Niagara Regional Council has spent more of their valuable abbreviated time defending their squalid conduct than they have in husbanding the needs of Niagara!

Niagara's $Million Miscreant

The local newspaper screams out their news that a miscreant who obtained the position of Niagara's CAO through fallacious and dishonest conduct is somehow entitled to a nearly $1 Million buyout.

News Alert Niagara contends that the only way this $Million dollar miscreant can scalp the Niagara Taxpayer of pay-off money is by nefarious means.

CAO Carmen D`Angelo committed a firing offence to obtain the position and therefore should be terminated for cause and without reward for his sordid behavior! 

Obviously the Regions hierarchy and chain of command needs an overhaul to prevent a similar  occurrence.

It's time our politicians worked as hard to husband Niagara Taxpayer's hard earned dollars as they do to reward their miscreant friends!

Niagara Mediocrity Unacceptable


In an effort to put the best face on a troubling survey, the Niagara Chamber of Commerce says that being in the bottom half of 415 cities surveyed is 'nothing to beat ourselves up over'!

Note to Chamber: Mediocrity is nothing to be particularly proud of either!

Considering everything Niagara has going for it and Niagara has far more than most, we should be ashamed of ourselves with an unacceptable  average of 220th of 415 best places to live.

Could our problem be the character of our elected officials? After all they are the ones in charge of Niagara! Our pompous civic leaders would have us believe that they are in control of Niagara; the framers of our future and pilots of our destiny.

However, those we have elected and hired are the ones who bear total responsibility for Niagara's dismal below average national ratings as to 'best places to live'.

Those we have elected and hired are responsible for changing council meetings from bi-weekly to once every 3 weeks as if they had so little to do on behalf of Niagara!

It is those we have elected and hired that are responsible for placing a curfew of 10:00 pm on council meetings as if mediocrity can be remedied in a 3 hour meeting once every 3 weeks!

Perhaps 3 hour meetings once every 3 weeks would do better if the time was spent on advancing Niagara instead of political in-fighting, back-biting, demagoguery, personal ideology and time consuming illegal and criminal acts. 

Couldn't the $tens of millions of missing tax dollars go a long way to advancing Niagara?

The worst of those we have elected are those that have coveted their political career instead of the welfare of our community.We need the good intentions and exuberance of new blood, which makes the case for term limits.

The depth of Niagara Region's corruption also makes the case for a recall mechanism. Of course that doesn't sit well with career politicians.  

Those we have elected and hired should heed the message from Judge Ramsay to NPCA Board: "NPCA board needs to accept its missteps — or resign and allow others to frame the future"!

A Study in Elected Corruption (Update #7)

This study is the culmination of years of observation and through the effort of many organizations and a small army of dedicated Citizens in the face of absolute secrecy.

If power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely then surely the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) epitomizes  corruption of power predicated on the NPCA's opinion that they answer to no one, are accountable to no one according to their stated belief in the Ontario Government act that created their absolute authority. 

Study of the Niagara Peninsula Corruption Authority 
Following Mr. Ed Smith’s pointed presentation at the (45:00 Minute Mark) to the NPCA Board of Directors meeting September 20, 2017 the board members sat in sullen silence without so much as asking Smith a single question.

As an example Smith picked his ‘smallest case’ concerning the overcharge of ($800.00) for a so-called ‘Freedom of Information’ (FOI) request.

Expanding on Mr. Smith’s example we offer some of the outrageous behavior foisted on innocent Niagara Citizens at the hands of the Niagara Peninsula Corruption Authority all with the approval of the NPCA Board of Directors.

The above members of the NPCA Board of Directors has authorized some of the most unbelievable attacks on private property and home owners including ‘A Travesty of Justice’, ‘Smoking Gun’ and many more.

Most egregious is the NPCA’s corrupt practice of charging private property owners and even ‘judge shopping’ over so-called environmental transgressions, while ignoring the same transgressions perpetrated by developers and friends. Thundering waters being a most significant example! 

The same NPCA Board Members allowed their staff to promote their ‘Bovine Waste’ of ‘Bio-diversity off-setting’ scheme in a specious effort to destroy The ‘Thundering Waters’ Provincially Significant Wetlands slough forest in favor of development.

Our present system breeds corruption. We need to be able to hold all politicians accountable for their actions, by way of suing them personally, of their own money. It would not stop all corruption, but at least it would drop the level of corruption we are witnessing in today's society. The democracy we have right now has no deterrent built into the system to stop corruption. If we sue a politician, it costs us tens of thousands of dollars to hire a lawyer. It costs the politician nothing, he gets to use our tax dollars to pay for his lawyer. If we win, the monies we receive comes from the taxpayers too. If we lose, we must pay the politicians legal fees too. No wonder few people sue these days, it's unaffordable for most people and the risk is too high. Our inaction gives our politicians a sense of increased power and entitlement to continue with 'their ways'. I believe this is why corruption has reached an all time high. Your thoughts?

In the mid 1800's, Sir John Dalberg-Acton, 8th Baronet likely said it best "Power Corrupts and absolute Power Corrupts absolutely....." and to this day, nothing has changed. I find that all Conservation Authorities have too much power not just the NPCA - just some are a little more dishonest than others...Dick Brady
