(Ministry of Transportation cops) ARE vultures
"$1,500 of tickets (from the MTO) one day... and then a month later, another $1,000 in tickets for things they apparently didn't catch the previous time."

Alec Caldwell wrote an opinion piece on Wednesday in which he called Ministry of Transportation ‘cops’ in Ontario “vultures.”
Alec is hardly opposed to safety rules and regulations. His organization, CARAHS, gives all kinds of seminars on everything from Working at Heights safety, to Policies and Procedures for renovation contractors, to truck and trailer safety. Alec goes nuts when he sees safety violations on jobsites. And he is NOT on any enforcement agency payroll.
Michael Breault chimed in with this post, in reply to Alec’s…
“These guys are vultures. I was riding shotgun in a friend’s cube van and watched him get $1,500 of tickets one day, and then about a month later receive almost another $1,000 in tickets for different things that they apparently didn’t catch the previous time. How are small business owners supposed to keep up with this “legal extortion”?
