Waterloo Chronicle, "Appeal of Muslim prayer centre goes forward with disputes outstanding"

An appeal of a proposed Muslim prayer centre is proceeding to a full Ontario Municipal Board hearing April 24 – 27, but it didn’t come without some disagreement.

In a pretrial OMB hearing that dragged on all day, the appeal ran into some major sticking points, including dividing the appeal on proper land use, future use of the site and the true identities behind the members of the Waterloo West Community Association leading the fight against the proposed prayer centre.
