Caslin breaks tie in one of his last official acts


A controversial end to a controversial four year term

Niagara Regional Council did not disappoint last night during the last council meeting before new councillors are sworn in in December.

Up for debate, whether to send CAO Carmen D' Angelo to China to represent the region at a trade expo.

D' Angelo asking for council's approval saying he did not want his attendance to be a distraction on the trip

The decision ended in a tie vote with outgoing regional chair Alan Caslin breaking the tie, which means the CAO will be heading to Shanghai next week.

The trip will cost taxpayers more than $4,000.

The first meeting of the new Regional Council will be on December 6th.
