Monette said the City will have to wait to see if the Friends of Lans­downe group ap­peals the decision, which would cause some de­lay on the con­struc­tion. They have 60 days to ap­peal to the Supreme Court.

"To con­tin­u­ally ap­peal this, is just a waste of tax pay­ers money," said Monette.

Mayor Jim Wat­son also told re­porters hopes the group will stand down. "Don’t do it," he said.

At a press con­fer­ence on April 30, June Creel­man, pres­i­dent of the Friends of Lans­downe, said a decision will be made in the com­ing days to see if the group con­tin­ues its le­gal bat­tle.

This is the sec­ond time that the re­quest of these cit­i­zens has been de­nied, af­ter the decision of Jus­tice Charles T. Hack­land, on July 28, 2011, at the Su­pe­rior Court of On­tario.
