An appeal of the Ward Boundary Bylaw 2013-29 was filed with the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) on May 3, 2013. There was a hearing on the appeal on September 23, 2013. At the hearing, the City submitted a motion to dismiss the appeal.

On October 24, 2013, the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) issued a decision regarding the appeal. The Board’s written decision gives reasons for its decision to deny the various adjournment requests made before and on the day the hearing commenced and goes on to render the decision on the motion to dismiss the appeal without a hearing on the merits.

The OMB dismissed the appeal, and the Ward Boundary By-law came into force and effect.
