Reality Check - Islands North
Some Light now Shines 2012-09-11
In our previous release we now refer to as “WithoutWitness - Part One”, concerning Strathcona Regional District Cortes Island Director Noba Anderson, we asked the District Directors eight relevant questions. We started with the question “What is the Regional District hiding?
We regret that the Directors haven't yet responded to our eight questions, but we can report that District staff responded yesterday with haste to our personally delivered Freedom of Information request.
Consequently, we now report that we have an answer to just one of the eight questions "Why can't taxpayers access the 2011 audited financial statements?" We have attached all these documents with this report.
Also, yesterday, after some three months and more of delay, District staff hurriedly posted these statements on their website for public access.
We ask that readers review these attached statements, perhaps finding the last three pages of particular interest.
Finally, should any reader wish to consult with us on the Freedom of Information process, we will do our utmost best to offer worthwhile advice.
