HRM Does Not Endorse "City Directory"

(Thursday, March 9/2000)-- A number of Halifax Regional Municipality offices have received calls from citizens regarding individuals working door-to-door or by telephone, claiming to represent-- and gathering personal information for-- the "City Directory."

The regional municipality does not endorse this publication nor is it connected in any with the company, the gathering of such information from citizens by its representatives, or the publication of any such information.

It is the understanding of HRM that the publication, known as the "City Directory" , is published by Polk Canada Limited, with head offices located at 34 West 2nd Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia, V5Y 1B3. The customer service line is 1-800-469-7999.

HRM advises that citizens are under no obligation to provide any information to this publication, or those gathering information for it.

Citizens are reminded to ask individuals for their name, and the name of the company or organization they represent, anytime a person calls soliciting funds or seeking personal information at the door or by telephone.

If citizens feel unsure about any individual or the organization or group they claim to represent, HRM urges them to contact the Better Business Bureau or their local police service.
