Under the heading “political activity,” Ontario’s Police Services Act permits a police officer to engage in “political activity” as long as they are not “soliciting or receiving funds.” It is very clear that a cop of any rank can’t do anything “that places, or is likely to place, the police officer in a position of conflict of interest.”
So does Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders speaking at a fundraiser for former chief Bill Blair’s bid to win a seat in Parliament for the Liberals violate those guidelines?
Don’t worry no Liberal media outlet will cover it.
Our “police” operate as a private, armed political militia in Ontario.
They serve their union first, and their ostensible political masters second.
