Divided Riley Park community centre members will have to hold a new meeting to elect directors

August 28th, 2014 · 37 Comments

I got a note from a Riley Park member yesterday asking why she had been notified about having to renew her membership and vote in a new meeting for directors.

I received a letter from the Riley Park Association today because I am a member. It is very strange. It asks me to renew my membership before August 31st in order to vote at the annual general meeting on Sept 4th. Sounds fishy. Looks like old board business. But we had them voted out in June… I don’t understand. Do you have any information on this?

For her information and the info of other confused members, here’s the link to the Supreme Court decision on Riley Park that was issued last week, which declared that the June meeting to elect a new set of directors was invalid. For the moment, the old board (but including four directors whom part of the old board had tried to remove) is in place and a new meeting to elect new directors has been ordered by the judge.

I have to say, I’ve been covering the city for 20 years as of this year and I’ve never seen such lawsuit mania as has erupted in the past year. What is going on?
