Last week was busy. We had more than a hundred people out to the OMB pre-hearing on January 6th. Thank you again for everyone’s support. Sarah Doucette, Cheri DiNovo and Peggy Nash were there lending their support and we even had a celebrity in our midst! Andrea Martin attended as a local resident passionate about responsible development. A little “star power” never hurts!
Although the majority of us were excused very early in the day, it was vitally important that this show of force was made and we really appreciate everyone who took the time out of their busy schedules to attend the Pre-Hearing. 110 participants registered at the meeting and they may have an opportunity to have their voices heard later in the process.
Mediation began on Tuesday Jan 6th and concluded on Wednesday January 7th. We are now awaiting a report by City Legal to be presented to City Council, hopefully in February. Confidentiality protocols prevent us from saying any more about the mediation until the report is made public, but we do feel positively about the process. At this point we are unable to share anymore details. As soon as we can share more, we will let you know.
