Fiduciary duty is the requirement of someone who has been entrusted stewardship over an organization (or government) to caretake the interests of others. They are expected to act honestly, in good faith and with a view to the best interests of the organization (or government).

I have been a director with a credit union for six years (recently re-elected for another 3 year term) and earned my accredited credit union director certification through the Canadian Credit Union Association. I have also earned a designation in governance through the Governance Professionals of Canada. I fully understand and appreciate the level of trust and integrity required to be a member of a board or council and am prepared for that responsibility as a fiduciary for the City of Kamloops.

It’s been quite the experience being in TNRD as it deals with its many issues. I think we have made a lot of good decisions to fix it. We hired a new CAO who is dealing with a all of this. We have a new legislative supervisor who knows good governance. We it the policy committee to work — I’m on it — and we are fixing governance issues. Some of us have also been quite blunt with directors about how to fix this long-standing mess.
