Municipal Compliance Audits
Yesterday, I took part in a press conference at Metro Hall hosted by Vote Toronto on the subject of municipal campaign finance reform. Ironically, back home I learned that a compliance audit application was being filed against Niagara Falls Councillor Wayne Thomson. Thomson is no stranger to compliance audits. In fact, people like him are responsible for groups like Vote Toronto who are calling for an overhaul of Ontario's system of municipal campaign finance. Given the history, this should be interesting.
