Our Office received a complaint that Greater Sudbury's council held an illegal closed meeting on April 7, 2016 when it attended a roundtable with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The roundtable was closed to the media and the public. Our review determined that a meeting for the purposes of the <i>Municipal Act</i> did not occur since there was no discussion between council members of council business or the laying of groundwork for council business. Council members directly addressed their comments regarding the community needs and opportunities to the Prime Minister.
