New report slams ICF

Spotted this today:

The report makes a bunch of recommendations .... ICF claims to have already acted on a couple.
Basically, the report reiterates what many of us have been saying here about the lack of transparency on the part of the ICF and Graham Bruce.

Good one! Drag up a post from 4.5 years ago, take it out of context .... almost like a politician!

Will, the lower levels of government (RDs and individual councils) are starting to see through the bullcrap being put forth by the ICF and their minions. There is no outside looking into the bantering here but some believe there really is. Mr Bruce is not that well thought of by either the province or Ottawa so his hiring was a move I believe to be a product of the Cowichan Valley Native Peoples. Whatever and whoever was behind his hiring it has been proven a disaster.

I don't know that it was the Cowichan first nations people (possible, I just don't know) but I suspect that someone in the provincial government of the day put his name forth as a means of "rewarding" a retired/defeated half-azzed politician.
The rest, I agree with you Dennis. But I fear that it may be too late now to save anything.

Will at the time I was part of the local Liberal Advisory Board here in the Alberni Riding. We were at a seminar in Victoria and one of the then Cabinet Ministers was in a meeting with us and the minister knew I was rail fan and asked if I knew why and who hired Bruce as both  the move and Bruce were not well thought of in Victoria power circles. He is not held in very high regard in either capital.

Nothing like the classic flip flop. Even more like a politician.... Great to see that you put down the Kool-Aid though....

How long has it been since the AVICC report was made public and still our lame media is not following up on this. It seems they jump from headline to headline, story to story without regard for any follow up or in depth examination of what is happening since the story broke. ICF people will not say anything and the media will not firmly hold the ICF feet to the proverbial fire to try and break the story. In the mean time the railroad languishes in a limbo of uncertainty. RIP E & N.
