Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion is facing allegations of conflict of interest.

City councillors voted Wednesday in favour of a judicial review of the situation.

The allegations concern McCallion's involvement in a $14.4-million land deal being brokered by her son, Peter. 

It's alleged private meetings were held between the mayor, her son and the developers of a multimillion-dollar hotel project.

McCallion says she declared a conflict of interest when the matter came before council — and the council minutes support her.

But a video record of the meeting does not show McCallion declaring a conflict.

For that reason the councillors voted 6-4 to launch a judicial investigation. 

It is the second time the 88-year-old mayor has come under scrutiny for conflict-of-interest allegations.

In the early 1980s, a judge ruled she breached conflict rules by being present during discussions about a rezoning issue in an area where she owned land.
