Regional Chair Jim Bradley offered the following statement regarding comments recently reported in the media related to Regional Councillor Ip:
"On behalf of Regional Council, I want to formally denounce the offensive and repugnant comments directed towards Regional Councillor Ip. There are no circumstances where this type of language is acceptable, and it only serves to denigrate a member of our community and degrade our public discourse.
Councillor Ip has taken the high road in response to this unfortunate event and is choosing to keep her concentration on her important role as a hardworking Regional Councillor. I believe the Councillor’s dedication and tenacity speaks for itself and her commitment to our Region is beyond reproach."
