Ombudsman Mandate Grows – Ambiguity Surrounds Appointment

Municipalities are well aware that the provincial ombudsman will be gaining a significantly larger mandate over investigating complaints related to a number of broader public sector entities; notably that of municipalities.  While Andre Marin discusses this new authority around school boards in a recent Toronto Sun interview,  there remains ambiguity from government on whether Marin gets a new term which ends on September 14th, 2015.  An all-party committee chaired by Dave Levac is responsible for this decision and it will surely be of interest to many.
