Councillors excited about Lansdowne ruling
Ontario Court of Appeal dismisses effort to stop redevelopment
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.
