BRAMPTON, ON: At its meeting on May 6, 2015, Brampton City Council repealed Resolution C294-
2014, which was passed by the former Council on November 12, 2014 (the “Resolution”).
Following this action, former Mayor Susan Fennell, through her legal counsel, has agreed to consent to
a dismissal of her judicial review application challenging the Resolution and other resolutions passed
on November 12, 2014.
Brampton Mayor Linda Jeffrey said: “The past Council established a final and binding dispute
arbitration process regarding alleged breaches of City spending policies by the former Mayor and
Councillors, which was conducted by Arbitrator Janet Leiper. That report is available on the City’s
website. This council accepts Ms. Leiper’s findings and considers that Ms Leiper’s findings supersede
all findings in previous reports on the same issues. Council also considers the Resolution to be
inconsistent with Ms. Leiper’s findings. As a result, Council is repealing the Resolution and Ms. Fennell
will receive all amounts withheld under that Resolution. We believe that the City of Brampton has
settled this matter on terms that are fair to all parties. This settlement allows both Ms. Fennell and the
new Council to move forward.”
Susan Fennell said: “Finally the people of Brampton can see the truth. At long last, this issue is now
behind me. It is my fervent hope that Council will finally move on. The citizens of Brampton deserve no
