Same douche that introduced all the street racing, stunting and 50 over laws (in addition to loads of other lame laws)
Do your part as a citizen email you MP and lets burn this **** at the stake. He might get off light if the public doesn't. Hopefully he was drunk.

TORONTO — A former Ontario cabinet minister was reportedly being questioned Tuesday in connection with a fatal accident on Monday night in downtown Toronto.
Reports say former Attorney General Michael Bryant was allegedly in a car involved in the accident in which a cyclist died of severe head injuries.
Toronto police Sgt. Tim Burrows said charges are expected to be laid, but the identity of the person in custody will not be released until then.
"We are anticipating that charges will be laid against him this morning, but at this point, the police are not willing to confirm the male's identity as he has not yet been formally charged with anything."
Reports indicated a cyclist died after hanging onto a car following an altercation with a driver in the city's Yorkville district just before 10 p.m.
Witnesses told police the cyclist hung onto the driver's side but eventually fell off and suffered severe head injuries.
Burrows confirmed some witnesses also said the driver appeared to try to remove the cyclist by brushing up against trees and poles.
"There's very limited evidence that he was trying to brush him off against objects. But I'm sure to the lay person that was watching, it may have certainly appeared that way -- but we're not committing to that at this time," he said.
A suspect car was later found by police as it was pulling into a nearby hotel but Burrows disputed reports the driver -- who was accompanied by a female passenger -- tried to flee the scene.
"What the driver did was just basically end up driving up and around the block to get away from the scene itself. We've heard different stories -- we are in the process of interviewing people to determine exactly what happened."
Burrows would not speculate on what charges the driver might face.
"Detectives both from the homicide squad and from Traffic Services are meeting and discussing the situation -- and they'll determine those (charges) as the investigation unfolds."
The accident occurred on busy Bloor St. between Bay St. and Avenue Rd.
"We know by video surveillance from the area that there were lots of witnesses who actually did see this, by the way they turned and looked at the roadway," said Burrows.
"We need those people to give us a call."
Burrows said the driver was cooperating with police and had asked to speak to legal counsel.
Bryant, who was Ontario's Attorney General, Aboriginal Affairs Minister and Minister of Economic Development, left provincial politics earlier this year to accept a position with Invest Toronto.
