Ontario Police union openly campaigning against Hudak and PCs

christie

People in Ontario who have PC elections signs on their lawns may want to remove them before calling the OPP to report a crime after this press release was sent out  by their union:

“There is no room for the divisive “Tea Party” style politics that Mr. Hudak would bring to Ontario. From what we have seen during his past as Leader of the Opposition through to the illogical present day promise to fire one hundred thousand people to try and create one million jobs, it is clear that Mr. Hudak subscribes to the far right wing teachings that have led to chaos in the “Right to Work” states south of the border.” (see here)

Just when you think you’ve seen it all.

Update: This screenshot was taken from one of the ads run by the union:

Assume this is an actor and not an actual OPP member in his service uniform getting out of an issued patrol cruiser?

Update: Sun’s Christina Blizzard fills in some blanks for us

– president Jim Christie confirmed there are real cops in the ads – and a real OPP cruiser

– Toronto lawyer said he believes the ads are illegal and may contravene the Public Service of Ontario Act

– Christie “We’ve donated to campaigns, we’ve attended fundraisers, we’ve gone to leaders’ dinners, we’ve supported golf tournaments” (see here)

    This would be the same police force that initiated or advanced the concept of 2 tier policing based on race and ethnic makeup. Caledonia is but the most extreme example, other preferential treatment for demonstrations and road closures have plagued Ont for years. There is no room in Ont for a police force that does not adhere to the same law for everyone.

  2. Guffman Says:

    What a surprise – another lefty, entitled union who wants the Liberal gravy train to continue forever. One would hope to see that at least law enforcement understands responsibility at all levels, but I guess the union mentality trumps that. Disgusting.

  3. Pissedoff Says:

    Just another reason for me,as an Ontarian, not to trust the liberals gestapo. Just who does Christie think he is kidding of course he is endorsing the other two parties.

    Thanks for that OPP, we were wondering after Caledonia who was responsible for the mess, was it management , or the rank and file.
    Both.
    Throw out the Liberals and give Mr Hudak a mandate to clean up the mess.

  5. Liz J Says:

    The OPP are not held in high regard and they’ve earned it. The credibility they spent with the disgrace of Caledonia is an example of the rot with the Liberals and the OPP.

    Two points. #1. The OPP CAO is Karl Walsh, who ran as a Liberal candidate in 2011 election. #2. The attack ads are in violation of the Police Services Act. http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/regs/english/elaws_regs_100268_e.htm

    The extremist greedy unions of Ontario won’t be happy until that Province is transformed into Detroit. How can the public trust the OPP to investigate the corrupt Liberals? This is a deeply troubling situation and yet another example of the immorality of public sector unions and the corrupt politicians that cater them… deeply troubling.

    • Guffman Says:

      Very good point! The OPP has now officially declared who they’re siding with (or not siding with) politically. This has all the signs of “I’ll scratch your back…” corruption, and the police are way out of line by making these declarations of Tim Hudak having ‘far right, divisive, tea party style politics’. They are supposed to be an apolitical organization.
      I used to support our provincial police, but my respect for them now is nil. They have no integrity left.

    Ontario is done like the proverbial dinner if they vote the corrupt Liberal gang back in. It’s one disgrace after another and the ordinary folks are going to be losing their homes, at the very least a big change in their quality of life in the police state of Ontario. The police ad is a scandal in itself, it’s another big lie, Liberals are all about lies across the board and the people of Ontario reward them over and over. These would be some of the same pack who are dissing the oil sands, they’re also big on wind turbines and solar panels they’ve ruined the landscapes with in the rural areas which do not support Liberals.

    Just call Jim Christie and let him know how you feel. He can be reached at 1-800-461-4282. I called today and let the poor receptionist have it. She took my name and number and to my amazement, Walsh called me back. Now usually I have tremendous respect for the police. I had absolutely none for Walsh. Let him have it with lots of cursing and swearing. The little slime kept wanting to talk numbers and how the OPP only account for 1% of the total budget. He failed to grasp the optics of this whole situation. Felt a little nervous when finished. Took down my blue election sign (illegal, I know) and kept looking towards the road expecting a cruiser to appear.

    AT THIS STAGE OF THE POLITICS OF ONTARIO IT IS BEST TO HAVE ANOTHER MINORITY GOVERNMENT. SOMEHOW, SOMETIME, THE ELECTORATE WILL CATCH ON TO THE LIBERALS. SOON THE DEBT RATING INSTITUTIONS WILL BEGIN TO DOWNGRADE ONTARIO’S DEBT.IT MAY MAKE A LITTLE DIFFERENCE.

    • Guffman Says:

      Do you live in Ontario? A minority government is NOT what we need. The only way out of the mess that the Liberals have left us in, after 10+ years of buying off every union, buying into every ridiculous green scheme with windmills and solar power contributing next to nothing to our energy supply, raising our taxes on almost everything you can think of, and taking our debt from $115 billion to almost $300 billion since they took power, is to have a majority Conservative government. A minority government will simply give us more of what we have now. An NDP party that helps the Liberals pass almost any spending or tax bill.
      And worse, a minority Conservative government, could well be overtaken with a Liberal/NDP coalition which neither of their leaders will rule out.
