When will OPP fire officer for appearing in uniform during anti-Hudak ad?

The Ontario Provincial Police owe it to the public to the name the officer who appeared in his union’s anti-PC ads (see here) and then, they must remove him from the force.

How many people has this officer pulled-over who advertise on their vehicles that they support the PCs?

Least now we know why this guy hasn’t been caught by the OPP:

pc sign stealer

Update: Turns out the footage was used by the union without authorization:

OPP Commissioner Vince Hawkes says footage used in an Ontario Provincial Police Association (OPPA) attack ad against Tory Leader Tim Hudak was improper and not permissible.

The commissioner said he outlined his concerns personally Thursday to Jim Christie, president of the OPPA. He also issued a directive about the issue to 8,000 OPP officers.

“I did meet with Jim Christie and discussed the memo I sent internally — (regarding) members involved in political activity — and that he does not have permission to use OPP images for any political agenda,” Hawkes said. “The OPP footage used was from another joint project that was authorized for that purpose only.” (see here)

    some people may be afraid to call on OPP for help because they might never come because they are supporters of Hudak or for that matter, these OPP may not come to your recue once they find out that you are a PC supporter.

    What comes to the forefront here is simply we cannot trust the OPP to be impartial, they’ve lost one of the most important things needed to be a police officer, TRUST.

    Living in a smaller town we are served by OPP, there are too many for the area and they spend their time bothering people, hiding in their cars parked among trees or around curves along the roads trying to catch someone going a little over the speed limit. Stopping people going home from work for no reason to check seat belts then ask if they’ve been drinking…..it’s harassment and serves no purpose, when people are complaining in large numbers you know it’s a problem.

    O/T, NDP wanted to prorogue parliament to delay the verdict to their mailings.
    Now, if the shoe was on the other foot, the NDP will call for their resignation.

    Of course, NOT! He will most likely get some extra paid vacation, a promotion, and a raise.

    In fairness Dean, the officer and cruiser were borrowed from a different ad. The officer may have had no idea his image was being used in this tasteless campaign ad. The resignation or termination you should be seeking is that of Jimmy Christie. The President of the OPPA.

    PC supporters should remove the election signs from their lawns and take them to their local OPP detachments where they can be dumped in a pile.in protest. It wouldn’t change the votes at the ballot box for the PCs as those protesting in such a way will still cast their ballot for Tim’s party, but the optics for the OPP would be terrible.
