Promoting fairness in the south

Alberta’s Ombudsman, Peter Hourihan, visited Medicine Hat on Tuesday, May 29, and Lethbridge on Wednesday, May 30.

Residents attended a presentation by Mr. Hourihan, and had the opportunity to meet with Ombudsman investigators for information about how the office works, and to discuss complaints of unfair treatment by the Alberta government.

“This was a very positive trip, and over the coming year I plan to host more public meetings across the province to build awareness of our services,” said Mr. Hourihan. “One of my aims is to continue to help Albertans gain better insight into administrative fairness.  Reaching out directly to the public is one of the best ways to improve their understanding of what we do, and who and what we can investigate.”
