BLG lawyer asks LPAT to consider denying full right to appeal urban development decision


In today’s latest development of the case of Ottawa homeowner appellant Dr. Hadi Salmasian [see: “OCLA supports opponents of Ontario’s vague and unfair planning law”], a lawyer from the BLG law firm representing the developer has asked the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) to “consider” barring Dr. Salmasian from making his constitutional argument and from challenging the very jurisdiction of the LPAT.

The exchange of letters to the LPAT is most instructive:

After making his succinct legal points, Dr. Salmasian ends his letter by noting that the notion that “Time is of the essence to our client” advanced by the BLG lawyer is incompatible with the concept of a “minor variance”.
