The first attempt at having an Integrity Commissioner serve Hamiltonians, by many accounts and on various levels proved dissapointing and some might say, a failure. Marked by late reports and the quality of some reports deemed unsatisfactory, combined with some of the elements of the contract being left unmet, Hamiltonians appeared miffed by the manner in which the position was allowed to play out. At one point, the Ombudsman of Ontario went as far as condemming one of the reports produced by then I.C. Earl Basse, vowing to use it as an example of how not to write a report.
