The city of Toronto’s integrity commissioner has launched an investigation into Etobicoke councillor Justin Di Ciano’s ties to a local developer.
CBC News has learned the investigation centres on allegations the councillor benefited “financially and politically” from developer Dunpar Homes Ltd.
Coun. Di Ciano, who represents Ward 5, Etobicoke-Lakeshore, has had both personal and business ties to Dunpar, as first reported by CBC News in May. He and fellow Etobicoke councillor Mark Grimes pushed for changes to a planning report that ended up benefiting Dunpar.
