COLCO Applauds Delta Faucet's position on the Georgie Awards

COLCO has questioned a number of firms about their present or past support of the Georgie Awards and the CHBA-BC.  A representative from Delta Faucet responded to our questions with the email copied below.

COLCO applauds Delta Faucet's position on the Georgie Awards but we question the firm's continued support of the CHBA-BC.  Delta Faucet, along with Weiser Lock, hosted the CHBA-BC Presidents Dinner and Awards Night at the recent Housing Issues Conference.

Even though Delta has dumped the Georgies, COLCO believes that hosting the Presidents Dinner event is still inconsistent with Delta Faucet's corporate position on community support.

To Whom it may Concern:

I received a copy of an email sent to Sara Picchioni questioning the support Delta Faucet is showing to the Georgie's.

I would like to clarify the preception you have been given of this event. Delta Faucet Canada is not a sponsor of this event.  Although we are involved in sponsoring another event around those days, we chose not to participate in the Georgies until the leaky condo issue which has caused so much discomfort, financial distress and has added unnecessary stress to many consumers' lives, is resolved.
