TORONTO, Ont. — The Owner-Operator’s Association of Canada (OBAC) says it has decided the best way to deal with its missing accountant is to get on with business as usual.
“We see the best course of action as forward movement. We’re actively recruiting members again, and we’ll be making several policy and position announcements in the very near future. If anything, this minor setback has strengthened the resolve of the board, and helped us focus on the real goal of OBAC, which is to strengthen the economic position of Canadian owner/operators,” says Leo Van Tuyl, OBAC executive director.
OBAC became mired in controversy following its formation in September when the group’s accountant went missing. OBAC says that while there have been no developments in the case, the association “has taken steps to secure its financial position” and is currently undergoing a forensic audit of remaining documentation.
