Former Toronto mayor John Sewell, now a member of the Toronto Police Accountability Coalition, said there seems to have been "an extraordinary amount of money wasted on this case."
"When you get (allegations of) serious wrongdoing by police, it's really important to look at it hard," said Sewell.Coupled with allegations of police impropriety, that's a "worrisome" combination, he said.

John Sewell John Sewell is an influential voice in both the city of Toronto's political and physical landscape. As a former mayor of Toronto and contributor to a number of city-based publications, Mr. Sewell has been a critic and leader in the development of Toronto for more than 30 years. After working as an alderman for the Toronto City Council from 1969 to 1978, Mr. Sewell was elected Mayor for a two year term. Throughout his time as both an alderman and as mayor, he was a strong advocate of city-based initiatives - including increased and affordable public transportation and a larger stock of public housing. He was also a leading defender of gay rights, long before the issue was taken up by other politicians in Toronto. Since leaving politics, he has been a regular contributor to a number of publications, including: The Globe and Mail, Now, Post City Magazine and Eye Weekly. He's also the author of eight books. Mr. Sewell was born in Toronto in 1940, and raised in the Beaches area of the city. He received a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Toronto in 1961 and a law degree from the University of Toronto Law School in 1964. He was appointed to the Order of Canada in 2005. Served as a director in 1991

As you read in our fund-raising letter, we were very fortunate to be able to retain John Sewell, former mayor of Toronto, as our agent for the OMB hearings and he has been working very hard for us over the past several months. He is now representing Limerick Township as well so we are able to work jointly with the township to oppose the developer's application to add 53 more lots to Limerick Estates, 29 of which are within 300 metres of the shore of Limerick Lake. (These are lots we should note that he willingly gave up in 1999.)
...
· LWRA (now with the township) hired an expert witness, a hydrogeologist, Rick McGregor, to give evidence at the hearing on the science and new technology issues; Rick has been most helpful to John Sewell to date in explaining some of the science data in the witness statements of the experts from the Ministry and the Trident; we have also submitted a witness statement from Councillor Dave Golem on the long-term implications for the township of the proposed new lots.
...
In the end, we supported the adjournment request with conditions but made the point that neither we nor the township supported a negotiated settlement because as John Sewell said: Trident had not honoured the settlement it agreed to in 1999, and we think the issues are too large and significant to be handled in a settlement such as that being contemplated. Sewell said we wanted adjudication on the science evidence. We believe that the decisions on this application will have implications that are province-wide.
Fortunately for us, OMB Member Culham said he thought it was necessary for the Board to hear scientific evidence on these matters - he was quite insistent on this -- even if there is a proposed settlement. He said he had read a number of the witness statements, and referred to some filed by the Ministry, and those filed by Rick McGregor (the Association's expert witness) and by Dave Golem, Limerick councillor. He indicated he had a substantial interest in water issues. He was concerned that the way the scientists resolved their differences had to be part of the hearing record and his judgment.
Member Culham understood that a settlement which involves development within the 300m setback from Limerick, an at-capacity cold water lake-trout lake, may provoke interest from other outside groups and organizations, and seemed to understand the necessity for the proposed settlement to be public and available before the Board considered its merits. He offered to schedule hearings on several evenings if this were needed to allow interested parties to speak on these issues. He suggested that the Association and/or the Township submit the names and addresses of such organizations as quickly as possible to the Board. When we indicated that we didn't really know what this might entail at this point, and it may take several weeks to get a list of interested parties, he indicated that he wanted to have those names by the September 8 hearing. It was agreed the Board will meet on September 8, at 10 am in the Ramada Inn, Belleville, to settle procedural matters but the main hearings will take place as originally scheduled in October.
In informal conversation following the proceedings, we and the township agreed we should draft letters to be sent to all of those we think would have an interest in the proposed settlement - other municipalities, the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, cottage associations, environmental groups and the media. John Sewell will draft the letters and we'll try to compile the lists of who they will be sent to.
