“We will not be conducting random vehicle or individual stop – Niagara Regional Police
Take That Doug Ford, Sam Oosterhoff and Company. A Message to You – We Don’t Live in a Fascist State!

A Brief Comment by Doug Draper, Niagara At Large –
How good it is to know that the Niagara Regional Police, along with a number of other police forces across Ontario, is lining up against Ontario Premier Doug Ford and his Conservative government’s draconian order – issues this April 16th – to have police arbitrarily pull virtually any of us over if we even go out on the road to a grocery store.
Ford’s order speaks to a bully personality he has exhibited, going back to his years as a Toronto city councillor, and to a streak of fascism in his mentality that should be unsettling to all of us who believe in democracy.
He and his puppets, including Niagara West Sam Oosterhoff who, among other things, called the police on peaceful seniors protesting cuts to public libraries a few years ago, need to be thrown out of office in next year’s provincial election over this.
In the meantime, thank you to the Niagara Regional Police for placing the constitutional rights of Niagara citizens above a form of fascism Doug Ford, Sam Oosterhoof and others would rather practice here.
Now here is the April 17th News Release from the Niagara Regional Police –
NRPS response to new provincial COVID-19 regulations
In an effort to halt the rising case counts of COVID-19, new restrictions were announced by the Government of Ontario, including a two-week extension of the current province-wide shut down.
Enhanced enforcement measures were also announced for provincial offences officers, including police officers, under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA).
The Niagara Regional Police Service is continuing to review the new regulations to ensure appropriate enforcement.
We will not be conducting random vehicle or individual stops. As before, our initiatives will be both complaint driven or proactive, with the goal of gaining compliance. Those that refuse to comply will receive the appropriate penalty.
With the healthcare system at critical capacity, the Niagara Regional Police Service continues to urge residents to take personal responsibility to follow the restrictions to limit the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus.
