Former Ontario Harness Horse Association President Malcolm MacPhail has let his feelings be known in regard to the OMAFRA Transition Panel.

An article by The Chatham Daily News has quoted MacPhail as saying that he doesn't expect that anything good will come from the panel's recommendations.

MacPhail, who was an OHHA director for 23 years, told The Chatham Daily News that the transitional panel process is "a big waste of time and money.''

OHHA GM Brian Tropea countered MacPhail's comments, stating, "Maybe it's all smoke and mirrors, but I'm hoping something good will come from the panel.''
