Seriously though, if Cam Woolley's reports drew attention to poorly-maintained vehicles and safety issues, where was the harm? The effect was to give these kinds of offenses a high profile. My guess is that many folks planning to head north on a long weekend would have been more aware of aware of OPP presence thanks to Cam, and at least giving some thought to the upkeep of their vehicles and safe driving practices.
Perhaps there is some bad blood between Fantino and Woolley, but Cam claims to be O.K. with it. Well, what else can he say? The OPP is now on message to be SERIOUS.
Whatever the reason, it's a shame. I was so hopeful that Fantino's appointment would have a positive outcome for Ontario. Now I'm not so sure. He says he is a traditionalist. I guess that means no laughing.
In any case, thanks for the memories, Cam. We're going to miss you.
