About the Inquiry

In early 2019, the City of Hamilton received information regarding a 2013 friction report related to the Red Hill Valley Parkway.

On April 24, 2019, the City passed a resolution pursuant to s. 274 of the Municipal Act, 2001 requesting the Chief Justice of Ontario to appoint a Superior Court judge to investigate matters related to the disclosure of the friction report.

The Honourable Mr. Justice Herman J. Wilton-Siegel was appointed to preside over the inquiry in May 2019.

Judicial Inquiries are a way for governments to examine issues and problems outside the regular legislative process. They can help communities benefit from independent, neutral examination of public issues. Public inquiries can also help shape public policy and make recommendations that will serve the public in future.
