Darnley v Thompson

Ontario Superior Court of Justice dismisses all allegations against the Mayor of Caledon in an application brought pursuant to the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act.

Alan J. Lenczner Q.C., Andrew Parley and Kelly Hayden acted for the defendant Mayor Allan Thompson in an application brought by resident Kelly Darnley under the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act. Ms. Darnley alleged that Mayor Thompson had voted on matters at council in which he had a pecuniary interest.

Following a hearing in Brampton, Justice Daley dismissed all of the allegations, finding no evidence that Mayor Thompson had a conflict of interest with respect to any of the council votes at issue.
