Municipal Bylaw ChargesSome people will say, "You can't fight City Hall!"  Of course, this is untrue; however, without skilled legal representation, such a fight is indeed a very difficult uphill battle.

Examples of municipal by-law offences include:

  1. The erecting of signage without a permit, see: R. (City of Hamilton) v. Ellis, 2010 ONCJ 217;
  2. The improper cutting or removal of trees, see: R. (County of Elgin) v. Nirta, 2012 ONCJ 629;
  3. The operating of a taxi service without a license, see: R. (City of Toronto) v. Rainal, 2006 ONCJ 335;
  4. The operating of a business contrary to proper zoning, see: R. (Municipality of Chatham-Kent) v. Benoit, 2004 ONCJ 446; and
  5. The permitting of, or failure to prevent, touching between patrons and exotic dancers, see: R. (City of Toronto) v. Zanzibar, 2007 ONCJ 4012

With literally hundreds of by-laws applicable within each Ontario municipality, keeping up with all the various by-law offences can be next to impossible, so, if you, or your business is charged with a by-law offence, hire representation.
