The Missing News takes a page from my book - a grand list of all articles - (posted here Aug. 9th).
Boy, the News is making up for years of non-reporting - which in reality caused the problems being "discovered" in the discovery.

Mississauga News - Aug. 4, 2010 - By 

Judicial inquiry coverage

Faces of the inquiry.
From left, businessman Peter McCallion and his powerful mother, Mayor Hazel McCallion,
are in the spotlight as the historic Mississauga judicial inquiry continues to unfold in the Burnhamthorpe Rd. W. courthouse.
Justice Douglas Cunningham (right) is probing the extent of the mayor’s involvement in a major land deal that was being brokered by her son,
and whether she had a conflict of interest.

Did Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion have a conflict of interest when she got involved in her son's business dealings? Or, was she just working on behalf the City of Mississauga by helping to bring a major hotel and convention centre to the City Centre?

That's what Justice Douglas Cunningham is trying to determine at the ongoing Mississauga judicial inquiry.

It's also a hot topic of conversation for many city residents.

The City of Mississauga Judicial Inquiry was established under Section 274 of the Municipal Act by a vote of City Council on Nov. 11, 2009.

It has been conducted in two sessions. The first half, which began May 25 and ran through June 15, examined a controversial Enersource Shareholders Agreement that gave unusual veto powers to the utility's minority owner, the giant OMERS pension fund.

The second part of the inquiry, which got underway July 8, is examining the mayor's role in a bid by a development company fronted by her son to buy a package of City Centre land from OMERS for a hotel and convention centre.

Below is our coverage of the judicial inquiry to date.
