Collingwood’s judicial inquiry into the 2012 sale of Collus is moving forward.
In a letter to Mayor Sandra Cooper, Chief Justice Heather Smith said she has appointed associate chief justice Frank Marrocco as commissioner.
Smith said executive legal officer Mohan Sharma has met with CAO Fareed Amin and will be working to set up a meeting between Amin and Marrocco.
“While the costs can be significant, the commissioner assigned to an inquiry can be requested to engage processes that will make the cost of the inquiry proportionate to the amounts and interests at issue,” she said.
Smith said she included a report from Mississauga regarding a judicial inquiry in 2009 to give some idea as to potential costs. The cost of this inquiry was estimated at $2.5 million and the actual costs were $6.2 million.
