Superior Court dismisses Application from Police Services Board 

PLANS TO TRANSITION TO OPP NOW IN FULL FORCE 

 


 

On November 14, 2018, the Municipality of West Nipissing received the decision by the Superior Court of Justice Divisional Court, that the Police Services Board’s application for judicial review was dismissed. 

OPP confirmed that intake and disbandment will take place in February 2019. The Municipality will continue its progress to support Council’s decision. 

“On behalf of staff and Council we are very pleased that the decision was ruled in our favour. While we believe that this process was unfortunate and cost tax payers unnecessary legal costs, the Superior Court’s dismissal confirms that our proceedings were appropriate. We look forward to continuing to work with all involved, to ensure a smooth and seamless transition for the benefit of our residents.” - Jay Barbeau, CAO
