The Toronto Star has been doing a number of articles on a Canadian registered charity named “ORNGE” which provides air ambulance services in Ontario. In this article Kevin Donovan, investigative reporter for the Toronto Star, is discussing amounts of legal fees paid by ORNGE and the services provided.
Here is the Toronto Star article “ORNGE paid lawyers $11 million”
As an aside Kevin Donovan will be speaking to charities at the CLIP Conference. http://www.globalphilanthropy.ca/index.php/blog/comments/being_good_at_doing_good_2012_in_toronto_-_feb_13_and_14_-_you_dont_want_to/
