A Regional committee is recommending a new code of conduct for councillors — but it is very different from the draft version their expert submitted.

Grimsby Regional Coun. Tony Quirk and Niagara Falls Regional Coun. Selina Volpatti amended interim Integrity Commissioner John Mascarin’s 28-page draft report in 58 different places at a procedural bylaw committee meeting Tuesday. Eighteen of the changes reworked sections or eliminated them all together.

The committee voted to accept their version and forward it to the full council.
