They are also reimbursed for expenses they incur attending conferences – the registration for the conferences is paid for by the Region

Ward 3 Councillor Rory Nisan cost the Region $71,933 –

$62,647 in salary,

$5,356 in “other expenses”

and $3,930 in conference attendance.

No other Councillor took away more than $70,000 cumulatively or more in conference and other expenses.

Nisan, who is now in his second term is as a City and Regional Councillor, got more in the way of Regional funds than anyone else on the 24 member Council, with the exception of Gary Carr who is Chair.

We have reached out to the Councillor for some detail on just what the “other expenses” were and which conferences he attended.

There has been no response to date

    Still waiting for an answer? Do we have a second councillor who won’t answer questions?

  • Lynn

    I will be quite interested in the response, how long it takes, and whether or not it seems to have come from him …

  • Sharon

    Why wouldn’t Halton Region be questioning these expenses?
    Is Nissan required to hand in receipts?
    How is attendance to conferences decided?

  • Grahame Richards

    Another politician dipping in the Honey Pot.It never ends.

    Well, this is a bit of a surprise. I wonder how a Counsellor who appears more in a mask than the Lone Ranger and is known by many only ‘by virtue’ of his ‘virtual presence’ manages to rack up the perk pennies. I will be most interested in his response. I will also be interested in whether he is allowed to answer on his own behalf or whether COB Communications will step in.
