Hamilton Police Services Board Governance Committee for June 25, 2015

The Hamilton Police Services Board’s Governance Committee meets this morning to discuss a new media relations policy which is the centre of debate between Councillor Terry Whitehead and Chair of the PSB Councillor Lloyd Ferguson.
Ferguson supports including gag provisions in the policy that will ban Board members from speaking to the media and public about Board members, Whitehead favours allowing individuals members to speak on matters so long as they make clear they are expressing a personal opinion and not speaking for the Board as a whole.
The meeting starts at 10:30am. The City of Hamilton is refusing to disclose which room the meeting is in, citing “privacy concerns” with revealing the room. (This will delay live video)

  1. I’m with Terry Whitehead on this one, as you have heard before if they have nothing to hide what are they afraid of. It is no wonder LIoyd wants to gag board members from speaking out just like most conservatives the preach openness and transparency and yet are hiding from the public what should be public knowledge !
