The Ombudsman reviewed a closed meeting held by the Personnel Committee for the Township of Bonfield to discuss an ongoing hearing before the Ontario Labour Relations Board. The meeting was closed under the litigation or potential litigation exception. The committee received legal advice from the municipality’s solicitor regarding the hearing. The Ombudsman found that the discussion fit within the litigation or potential litigation exception because the committee was discussing ongoing litigation before a tribunal.
