After this story, they had better be in a safe place so they can be reviewed! I would hope that the CEO at the Library and the auditors would have ensured that they were in safekeeping so that some assistant would not inadvertantly shred them in error.
“Court records show that the delay was caused when some documents were destroyed.
“In the course of cleaning my office in Toronto in preparation for a move home to Windsor, Ontario, my assistant inadvertently shredded supporting documentation that the Association Auditor needed as support for the information included in the Return,” Maghnieh wrote in his affidavit submitted to the Superior Court and dated Dec. 21, 2010. “As a consequence, the Auditor said that he could not give an opinion as to whether the Return presents fairly the information contained in the financial records of the Association on which the Return is based.” Maghnieh did not return a call from The Star.” (Craig Pearson Windsor Star April 27, 2012)
I am certain though that with his CAO experience, Councillor Payne is way ahead of me and would have arranged that immediately after he found out what happened on April 17 if it had not been done before.
