One of the highlights of any long weekend in Ontario is listening to his animated reports about crazy drivers on the 400 series highways who push the limits in terms of speed and vehicles in various states of disrepair. He also compiles lists of excuses from motorists that could be humorous if the situation wasn't so dangerous.
I recently saw an interesting piece about his hobby/sideline. He repairs and restores old police vehicles, etc. for spots in films. His cars have to audition just like movie stars. He has had several successful entries.
All this serves as a backdrop for today's Toronto Sun article, "Who Will Lead the OPP?".
(H/T to Nealenews).
Cam, who is also head of the OPP union in the GTA, weighs in with his opinion about the possible candidates to replace outgoing OPP Commissioner Gwen Boniface. He seems to be favouring deputy commissioner Jay Hope:
In recent years, he has focused on recruiting women, First Nations people and minorities. The former GTA regional OPP commander and Canada's top-ranking black police officer "knows who his boss is -- the citizens," Woolley said. "He's a classy guy.
"He'd never give an order he wouldn't follow himself, and he's so in tune with officers in the community," he said, adding unlike most municipal chiefs, the OPP commissioner meets regularly with the police union.
Well, all I can say is, if he's good enough for Cam, he's good enough for me. Best wishes, Jay Hope.
