Video: Most of council voted on motions that can add 27 highrises to Burlington's downtown. Not enough parkland will be added and we'll fall below the parkland standards other municipalities set.

On Oct. 20, I was notified that three households (four residents) in my Ward have together filed a complaint against me with the Ontario Municipal Ombudsman regarding my public comments in my role as City/Regional Councillor for Ward 2 Burlington about the city’s decision to sell publicly-owned waterfront land between Market Street and St. Paul Street in my Ward.

I am confident that the allegations will be shown to be baseless and without merit, bordering on the libellous. I welcome an investigation that will clear up the incorrect information that is being circulated, so that we can have a reasonable discussion on an important matter of public policy, that being whether public waterfront land should remain in public hands or be sold to private homeowners.

This action is an unfortunate diversion from the main issue at stake, which is the sale of public waterfront land. I hope that we can return to discussing the issues respectfully, and agree to disagree respectfully.

The full text of my public statement in response to this complaint is below, along with links to the complaint, the court case cited and supporting documents.

I remain committed to full public dialogue on this issue, including with the homeowners/complainants in this
