Controversy before OMB hearing begins in County

An Ontario Municipal Board Hearing into the legality of the “heritage conservation district” planned for downtown Picton is off to a rough start.
The Canadian Constitution Foundation is now involved with 2 downtown Picton property owners appealing Prince Edward County councils designation of the downtown as a “heritage district.”

One of those properties is the Naval Marine Archive.

Executive Director of that organization, Dr. Paul Adamthwaite, had asked that the OMB hearing be delayed to allow time for its new lawyer, Michael Pretsell, to be ready to represent it.

Another law firm had recently decided to not take the case. Prince Edward County would not agree to give them extra time.

The OMB hearing is slated to begin tomorrow at Shire Hall.

The Canadian Constitution Foundation is accusing the County of being unreasonable and bullying the property owners.
