New North Tired of Government Red Tape

The new chair of New North says fighting red tape is turning into a pastime for administrators of northern municipalities.


Dale McAuley says restrictions and regulations of southern-minded government officials is a topic that many New North members sounded off about at yesterday’s AGM in Prince Albert.


McAuley says quality programs for water and other resources look great on paper, but he says it’s different when you live and work in a community without a large populace or pocketbook.


McAuley was elected to his new post earlier this week. Also appointed to positions on the New North executive was Buffalo Narrows mayor and former New North chair Bobby Woods, who will now serve as vice-chair. Cecile Caisse of Pinehouse is the treasurer and Max Morin of Ile-a-la-Crosse is the member at large.
