Crown Attorney David King stood in an Ontario Court of Justice on March 25, 2009 and proclaimed several things to the presiding Justice while refusing to prosecute a charge of Mischief against two Haldimand OPP officers.

#1 there is no reasonable prospect of convicting these officers based on the evidence.

#2 they were simply performing their lawful duty as police officers and keeping the peace by helping to build the fence.

#3 it is not in the best interest of the public to prosecute this case.

In what I believe will be a significant turning point in the battle against two tiered justice in Ontario, a nearly 2 year battle was won this week to have 2 OPP officers charged with Mischief for aiding Floyd Montour and Brian Skye in building a fence to keep the legal owner out of a construction site in Hagersville.

The event in question occurred on May 23, 2007 when 2 officers followed the instructions of illegal occupiers and assisted in the building of a barricade. I was at the scene and video taping at the time and have been attempting to see something done about it ever since.

I filed complaints with OCCPS in the summer of 2007 which were rejected on the grounds that I am not the owner of the property and as such had no right to complain. I appealed that decision without success, and in March of 2008 I began the process of laying criminal charges against them privately for Mischief.

Like many other lucky Conservatives, I awoke this morning to the happy news that John Tory lost yesterday’s byelection to Liberal Rick Johnson and tendered his long overdue resignation this afternoon. As some may recall, Tory not only blew the Provincial Election for the PC party in 2007, he lost his own riding and has been a laughing stock ever since.

For many their last memory of John Tory may be that he lost an established Conservative seat to the Liberals because of his selfish refusal to step down, or the fact that even when an MPP tried to hand him her seat the voters refused to choke on a term of Tory leadership, but I’d like to share a story about Mr. Tory and what could have been. This is one of many (MANY) stories that we have never shared with the public.
