Integrity Investigation into Robertson is Over


The Municipality’s Integrity Commissioner has completed his investigation into former councillor Derek Robertson.

According to Commissioner Paul Watson, Robertson had intervened on a building permit application last year and allegedly put pressure on municipal staff.

Through investigation, Watson has deemed that Robertson was in breach of section 14 of the Code of Conduct for Members of Council, which deals with Conduct Respecting Staff. Watson further notes that he did not find Robertson to be improperly using his influence.

His report states that he does not recommend that Council impose any formal sanctions on Robertson as he is no longer a councillor.
