Exclamation Fantino to face criminal allegations that he tried to influence politicians



Quote:
Ontario’s top cop vows to fight influence allegations

TORONTO — Ontario’s top police officer says he will defend himself against allegations that he tried to influence municipal officials during a long-running aboriginal land dispute in the province.


“I intend to vigorously defend myself and the OPP against this allegation and have the utmost confidence in the judicial system,” Julian Fantino, commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police, said in a statement Saturday.


Fantino is facing a charge of attempting to influence elected officials, after a justice of the peace on Friday signed a summons requiring the former Toronto police chief to appear before a criminal court.

The summons comes after a Dec. 31 Ontario Superior Court order demanding a formal charge be laid in relation to allegations against Fantino brought forward by a private complainant, Gary McHale, who has long been at odds with the commissioner over his handling of the aboriginal protests in Caledonia, Ont.


In the statement, Fantino said he stands by police action during the dispute.

He also strongly defended the provincial police force’s efforts to keep the peace and protect the public in Caledonia during an often-volatile land dispute that has created tensions between various groups.


“I am proud of the work that the men and women of the OPP have done in Caledonia over the years in a complex and, at times, extremely volatile environment,” he said. “The OPP and its officers have taken a measured approach and acted in accordance with legislated responsibilities and exercised police discretion appropriately, fairly and equally.”


At the centre of the current dispute is Fantino’s April 7, 2007 e-mail to Haldimand County’s mayor and councillors, which warned the politicians not to support anti-occupation protests.

The commissioner wrote that he would hold the county directly accountable for any injuries suffered by OPP officers during protests by a contentious group known as “Caledonia Wake Up Call,” led by McHale. He also warned that he would advise the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services not to renew the OPP’s contract with Haldimand County for policing once it expired if councillors supported the protest group.


Fantino could appear in criminal court as early as Feb. 3

Finally and crap like this happens because our premier has no balls, lets not forget that.

Can you imagine the balls to threaten with holding security from a community, not they did much of that any way. It was clear who he was there to protect, the people who were breaking the law. You or I block any road we'd be in cufss in minutes. Time for our government to get tough, we look like push overs.

We can beat a dead horse all day long, but he took someone's job and now is enjoying at CP24. Let us keep paying for the education loans.

Fantino hails dropped charges

Tories demand McGuinty explain

Activist to appeal ruling

Meanwhile, the activist who originally pushed for the charges against Fantino has vowed to continue his fight.

"We are not going away," Gary McHale vowed to reporters outside the courthouse. "The government is just digging itself into a hole, allowing us to prove that this whole story has been one of political interference.

Gary McHale, who initiated the criminal complaint against OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino, told reporters he would now take his case to the Superior Court. (CBC)
"If the government upheld the law instead of putting up hurdles, this case could proceed and justice would be served."

McHale has filed a judicial review to bring the case to Superior Court, where he hopes to convince a judge that an Ontario Crown attorney should not argue the case against Fantino.

As the initiator of the case, McHale has the right to prosecute it, but he has said he would rather have a Crown attorney from another province handle it.

McHale had filed a private prosecution to instigate the criminal charge against Fantino for trying to influence Haldimand County Council against him.

McHale, a computer programmer with no legal background, said he was drawn to the Caledonia fight in the summer of 2006 after repeated clashes over the disputed land escalated into violence. Believing police were failing to intervene, he began to chart all the incidents where no charges were laid and to put videos of some of them on his website

Can't say I'm surprised, but it's still disgusting.

The case should never have used an Ontario attorney in the first place, it should have been prosecuted by a 3rd party crown prosecutor from another province, as is normal for cases like this. For this exact reason.

Hopefully the appeal to the superior court will go through properly. This is just such a blatant disgrace to the justice system. A judge should be the one that decides if he's guilty or innocent, not Fantino's buddy from the crown prosecutor's office.

I'm sure he is far more qualified than the person he replaced. Should we hire immigrants because of a racial void or should we hire the best man for the job?
