Niagara Falls council following Fort Erie's lead on whistleblower policies
Niagara Falls Council is following in the footsteps of Fort Erie to develop a policy on whistleblowing.
In July, Fort Erie council passed a resolution calling on town staff to put together a report on policies regarding protections for whistleblowers.
The resolution from Fort Erie states the town, "fully supports whistleblowing and is committed to protecting whistleblowers, and the important information they provide."
Last night, Niagara Falls councillors supported the statement, and unanimously voted to have their own staff compile a report.
