CORNWALL Ontario – Did he or didn’t he? A confusing media report suggests that a City employee is not being charged for clearly burning by a school bus with its lights flashing.
One person cited his nephew having a knock on his door and being given a $500 ticket for the same offense without a video.
The Cornwall Seaway News Adam Brazeau reported that City Hall had an admission from the employee in addition to the video and that some sort of “punishment” had been meted out.
Calls to CAO Norm Levac have not been returned as of press time; but the CPS have confirmed that the investigation is ongoing and not closed. The spokesperson also cited that there had not in fact been any “admission” to police which clearly would indict the driver.
The article singles out a bylaw officer of which there are not that many in Cornwall and clearly not that many working at any given time as indicated by when the video was shot.
Many were talking about different sets of rules and how they are being enforced and prosecuted. Do you think justice is equal for all in Cornwall dear CFN viewers? You can post your comments below.
City hall said the driver admitted his error and was disciplined. Citing confidentiality rules, the punishment has not been made public.
CAO Norm Levac said the city notified police soon after the bylaw office became aware of the alleged incident.
