The much-anticipated release of the Mississauga judicial inquiry report has been pushed back once again because Mayor Hazel McCallion will be out of the country next month.
Commission counsel William McDowell told The News today that the mayor will be leading a trade mission to Brazil from Sept. 9-18.
“We have agreed with her counsel that we will not release the report until she returns,” McDowell said, adding the report won’t be made public until after Sept. 19, the day of the Ward 5 by-election.
McCallion’s trip is part of the Greater Toronto Marketing Alliance Trade Mission to Brazil, which has been in the works since last fall, said the mayor’s lawyer, Liz McIntyre.
San Grewal Urban Affairs Reporter
The Mississauga judicial inquiry report expected after Labour Day will be delayed because of a trade trip to Brazil scheduled by Mayor Hazel McCallion and the Greater Toronto Marketing Alliance.
The report on the probe of allegations that the mayor used undue influence to promote a land deal involving her son’s company was expected before the Sept. 19 byelection in Ward 5 that could tip the balance of council against McCallion.
It was thought the report might influence voters choosing between McCallion supporters and former councillor Carolyn Parrish, a longtime rival, who are running for the seat vacated by new MP Eve Adams. It will now be released after McCallion’s return on Sept. 18.
At least San Grewal gets it!

Preliminary investigation of the Greater Toronto Marketing Alliance dredged up this June 16, 2008 Toronto Star article.
When the GTMA was born in 1997, then Toronto mayor Mel Lastman and Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion clashed. Lastman said he wanted a Toronto agency. McCallion blasted a GTMA pamphlet that used the naked word “Toronto” without acknowledging the surrounding area.
That tension lingers, insiders say. Some Toronto bureaucrats came to view the alliance as an agent of the suburban municipalities, dominated by Mississauga….
