Rabies board needs members

There are no members of the province’s Rabies Advisory Committee, according to online information on government boards, commissions and committees.

There are 11 vacancies, including the chairman position.

The committee is supposed to be advising the Ministry of Natural Resources on appropriate control measures.

It’s offices are at Trent University In Peterborough.

The Niagara Escarpment Commission is another body with a lot of vacancies –six of them.

There are few vacancies on agriculture-related boards, commissions and committees, possibly because farm organizations such as the Ontario Federation of Agriculture keep a watch and a list of prospective appointees.

One that is open is a spot on the Livestock Medicines Advisory Committee.
