DISMISS Niagara Region CAO Carmen D'Angelo with cause

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

Following the shocking seizure of respected veteran reporter Bill Sawchuk's laptop and notes by staff at the Niagara Region on Thursday, the 7th day of December, 2017, we demand that Chief Administrative Officer, Carmen D'Angelo, resign. Freedom of the Press is the cornerstone of a free society and one of the tenants of Canadian democracy; an apology does not suffice for this flagrant disregard of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Update July 2018 - over 500 people had signed this petition in the weeks immediately following the Press Freedom incident; I have discovered since the release of Press Pause by Ontario Ombudsman Paul Dube, people are again signing - only this time, they demand CAO D'Angelo be dismissed with cause. As such, I am updating this petition to reflect the new information and to reflect the publics desire for accountability at Niagara Region.
