ambridge Mayor Doug Craig will have his day in court.

During the week starting Aug. 6, an Ontario Superior Court judge will review a conflict of interest Craig has declared on rapid transit since 2011 because his son owns a home near the site of a future rapid transit station.

"The goal is to have a judge of the Superior Court of Justice determine if that conflict is too remote or too insignificant for a reasonable person to believe that it would impact (his decision-making,)" lawyer Doug O'Toole said.

If a judge dismisses the conflict, Craig can get back to the table on the Region of Waterloo's $818-million rapid transit project.

It will see light rail trains in Kitchener and Waterloo and express buses in Cambridge.

Up to 14 of 41 politicians on four local councils have declared conflicts of interest on the project.
