Conflict of interest complaint against Rob Ford was timely, Court rules

Decision Date: 2015-07-28
Case Link: MacDonald v Ford, 2015 ONSC 4783

A Judge has ruled that allegations that Rob and Doug Ford violated the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act were made within the applicable limitation period. The Fords had sought to avoid having to defend a proceeding under the Act by bringing a motion to dismiss the claim as untimely. The matter will now proceed, and if a breach of the Act is found, the Fords could be prevented from holding municipal office.
