Rally Against Fantino

Gary McHale is pushing the fight to Vaughan:

A group calling itself Conservatives Against Fantino says it will hold protests outside Fantino's campaign office over five days leading up to the Nov. 29 byelection in Vaughan, north of Toronto.

The group says it has registered with Elections Canada to become a third party, which allows it to spend up to $3,765 in advertising to promote or oppose candidates in the Vaughan byelection.

A news release about Conservatives Against Fantino was sent by Gary McHale, who has been a vocal critic of the provincial police force's conduct during an ongoing aboriginal occupation in Caledonia, Ont.

Fantino has accused McHale of being an agitator who provoked confrontations and baited police, while McHale accuses Fantino and his former force of two-tier policing in Caledonia favouring the aboriginal occupiers.

I have previously detailed Gary McHale and Mark Vandermaas fight against two-tier policing in Caledonia, including the failure of Julian Fantino to uphold the law during his term as OPP commissioner. Flyers to be distributed in Vaughan are here.

Harper running Fantino on a "law and order" platform is a sick joke. Time to clean house in Ottawa.
