Lindsay Post Article Highlights Kawartha Lakes Board of Trade Process Problems!

April 2, 2013 All members of the public are invited to discuss the future of the proposed Kawartha Lakes Board of Trade. The meeting, spurred by recent concerns published in Lindsay Daily Post, will be from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm at Fenelon Falls Community Centre on Veterans Way in Fenelon Falls . The purpose of the meeting will be to address concerns clearly expressed Ian Forster, a stakeholder, and subsequently published in The Lindsay Post. The goal will be to address all the concerns raised and develop a move forward plan.  It is hoped that the timing of this meeting will accomodate most stakeholders.

What Concerns Did Ian Forster Raise?

According to Lisa Gervaus of the Lindsay Post:
Forster, who represents the Coboconk-Norland & Area Business Committee of Council on the board sent out an e-mail on Tuesday, Mar. 26 outlining how he believes the [Kawartha Lakes Board of Trade] process has unravelled, and sharing his suspicions of the motivation for the formation of the board of trade were starting to grow.
Points addressed in the article include:
  • Surprise change in players spearheading the process -from Lindsay Chamber of Commerce to Fenelon Falls Chamber of Commerce.
  • Surprise parting of ways with consultant Richard Fortin
  • Application for event funding in conflict with Coboconk Fresh Water Summit 
  • Press releases issued without consultation or vetting from the group as a whole.
  • Decisions were being made by only a few on behalf of the many
