The recent allegations by Oshawa Auditor-General Ron Foster, if true, are not only damaging to the credibility of both financial and administrative decision making at Oshawa City Hall.

The Pesticide Free BC website will be off line during the 2013 provincial Election Campaign April 16th – May 14th. The website contains third party advertising because it identifies the party that supports a pesticide ban and the one that continues to ignore BCers. The website will be back on line after the May 14th Election Day.
