Integrity Comissioner Investigates Another City Councillor

Sydenham District Councillor Peter Stroud is being investigated by the city's Integrity Comissioner over comments he made to the media about "irresponsible landlords."

Stroud's comments were featured in a news story about a proposed interim bylaw that would temporarily suspend expanding student housing around St. Lawerence College and Queen's University.

In February, the city held a public meeting about a proposed interim bylaw that would restrict expanding student housing around Kingston's post-secondary institutions.

A special council meeting has been scheduled for later this month for councillors to talk about their code of conduct and to clear up any confusion about the rules, as it has been several years since the last time it was examined.
