Is It Possible to Fight a Bylaw Charge?

In Many Circumstances a Bylaw Charge Can Be Fought Similarly to the Process In Which a Traffic Ticket May Be Fought. Of Course, There Are Never Guarantees For a Sure Win; However, Diligent Review of the Evidence and the Applicable Law May Reveal a Strong Defence Strategy.
A Helpful Guide On How to Determine Whether to Fight Municipal Bylaw Charges

City Hall Where Municipal Bylaws Are Made Some people will say, "You can't fight City Hall!"  Of course, this is untrue; however, without skilled legal representation such as assistance from Defend-It Legal Services, fighting city hall can indeed be a very difficult uphill battle.

Examples of cases involving municipal by-law offences which Defend-It Legal Services may be able to provide legal help include:

  1. The erecting of signage without a permit, see: R. (City of Hamilton) v. Ellis, 2010 ONCJ 217;
  2. The improper cutting or removal of trees, see: R. (County of Elgin) v. Nirta, 2012 ONCJ 629;
  3. The operating of a taxi without a license, see: R. (City of Toronto) v. Rainal, 2006 ONCJ 335;
  4. The operating of a business contrary to proper zoning, see: R. (Municipality of Chatham-Kent) v. Benoit, 2004 ONCJ 446; and
  5. The permitting of, or failure to prevent, touching between patrons and exotic dancers, see: R. (City of Toronto) v. Zanzibar, 2007 ONCJ 4012

With literally hundreds of by-laws applicable within each Ontario municipality, keeping up with all the various by-law offences can be next to impossible; accordingly, if you, or your business, is charged with a by-law offence, hire Defend-It Legal Services for your representation.
