Red Hill Valley Parkway Inquiry launches website

News Aug 19, 2019 by Kevin Werner Hamilton Mountain News

The Red Hill Valley Parkway Inquiry has created a website and Twitter handle for the public to follow the event once it begins sometime in 2020.

The inquiry, which is being conducted by Commission Justice Herman Wilton-Siegel, was created by Hamilton council to investigate issues relating to a 2013 friction report related to the Red Hill Valley Parkway. Other areas that Hamilton council established as part of its terms of reference include why the report was not provided to staff and the public until late in 2018 and whether appropriate steps were taken to disclose the report.

The inquiry will also examine if the city was negligent in failing to disclose the report, whether roadway users were put at risk and whether not having the report contributed to any accidents, injuries or fatalities on the Red Hill Valley Parkway since January 2014.

The inquiry could revise the terms of reference that council approved.

Information related to the inquiry will be available at www.rhvpi.ca, while the Twitter handle will be @RHVPI. The website will post information regarding how to participate in the public hearings, the schedule of the hearings and witnesses, transcripts and exhibits filed.

The inquiring is collecting documents and public hearings are scheduled to begin in 2020, although dates and location have not been established.

Wilton-Siegel, who is from Toronto, oversaw the recent restructuring of U.S. Steel Canada now known as Stelco, and approved the sale of the company to the U.S. investment firm Bedrock Industries.

Wilton-Siegel also recently rejected Hamilton council’s appeal to squash a provincial agency’s decision that forced the city to pay the higher Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s apportionment levy.

Hamilton this past spring approved spending $7 million for the inquiry. The inquiry could take over a year to complete.
