CORNWALL Ontario – Chief of Police Dan Parkinson will have to answer to what’s going on in the tow truck trade in Cornwall Ontario. We have seen nearly a dozen incidents of vandalism and fire over the last 36 months. New by laws seem to be only fueling tension in the trade, as well as our coverage of issues related to the contract given by police to one firm.
Like many industries Towing is very competitive. The high cost of insurance and equipment fueled by political interference with the free market seem to be causing a tipping point in Cornwall.
The CPS need to find some solutions as each incident is costing the public, probably higher insurance costs, and of course higher towing charges as the hookers themselves will face higher costs that they will have to pass on to the public.

Surely it’s time to find out who is behind what is going on and bring some sanity back before someone gets hurt?
