No Support for Negligence

Goderich | by Rick Stow  

Goderich Councill will not seek changes to Negligence Act just yet.

The Town of Goderich won't be joining municipalities seeking changes to Ontario's Negligence Act -- at least not immediately.

The issue of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario campaign seeking "joint and several liability reform" in the Province came before Goderich Council in October.

At the time members wanted more information.

A 29-page dossier on the history of the issue including the rising costs of judgments against municipalities failed to convince members, who recently voted to receive and file the correspondence.
