Talbot House opposes report.
Dr. John Gainer
The future of Talbot House Recovery Centre is uncertain after the province pulled its funding because it was not following proper procedures.
The Community Service Department pulled the home's funding after a review of its operations, Dr. John Gainer, chairman of the home's board of directors said. He said the province found that the home was not following proper procedures. Neither the province's investigation of Talbot House, nor the board's response, has been made public.
But Gainer said the report is riddled with errors.
"If the conclusions that they've drawn are based on what we consider to be inaccurate information, then it renders the report, in our view, unbalanced, prejudicial, biased and it does, again, in the opinion of the board, represent a misrepresentation of the history, the governance and the operation and perhaps, more importantly, the outcomes of Talbot House," he said.

Chicago: The Musical
Winner! 6 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical
Winner! 6 Drama Desk Awards, Outstanding Revival of a Musical
Premiering in 1975 and the hit of the 1997 Broadway season in a production that originated at City Center's Encore! series, Chicago won six Tony Awards including Best Revival and later the Academy Award as Best Picture of the Year.
In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap...until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another 'Merry Murderess' Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the 'American Dream': fame, fortune and acquittal. This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.
