Photographers Rights

Hey Max'! I've been contacted by someone from the Municipality where I live, and it seems as though they want me to take down some photo's I have on Flickr and FB. These photo's are of Public Servants in the Safety sector, who are on the job, and in public. I took the photo's on public property, while the subjects were on public property in plain view. Also Some images are from public ceremonies. I'm being told that it's illegal to take pictures of people in public.

I found it before, but I can't find it again. I need to find all laws in Ontario and Canada that pertain to photographers. What I do know, is that I'm allowed to take photo's of people or things in public, while on public property, and that the media doesn't have any more rights than I do.

If anyone can help me out that would be great!

Oh, for the record, I mostly dabble in "Fire Photography", which is as it sounds. I take photo's of anything Fire Service related. I do it for me, but also the Firefighters who go un-thanked, and un-recognized for the work they do. I have a following of Firefighters who I do work for when I get the chance. The top brass of the Police, and Fire departments seem to think what I do is wrong. Aside from what you guys think as well, this is how I make money.

Thanks again everyone.
