Former NPCA employee launches countersuit

A former Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority employee has launched a $400,000 lawsuit against the agency.

Post Media reporting Jocelyn Baker is counter suing the Authority for defamation and breach of contract.

The NPCA launched its own suit against Baker in October after Welland MPP Cindy Forster read an email Baker has sent her to the Ontario legislature.

The conservation authority alleges that email violated an agreement Baker had signed when she was terminated which prevented her from disparaging the agency verbally, in writing, or digitally.

  • Dogs Fall Short Versus Kingston

    The IceDogs got behind early and could never catch up, falling 4-2 to visiting Kingston Thursday night. Despite the loss, Kirill Maksimov was the game's first star scoring both Niagara goals.
  • Dogs Out Battle Battalion

    Matt Philip scored a pair of goals, including the game winner, as the IceDogs picked up a big two points in North Bay winning 4-3 on Sunday. The win solidifies the Dogs second place spot trailing only Barrie in the OHL's Central Division.
  • Colts Buck IceDogs

    When Bradey Johnson scored his first OHL goal less than two minutes into the Saturday contest in Barrie, it looked to be the start of something good. Looks were deceiving as the Colts won 6-1 over the visitors from St Catharines.
