TORONTO, Ont. — OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino is steering the provincial police into a no nonsense approach to traffic safety.

For a number of years, Cam Woolley has provided the public with humorous and anecdotal tales of the inane things that motorists get caught doing during safety blitzes conducted on the highways.

But, Fantino wants to take a more serious approach to driving safety and has nixed the story time sessions.

“No more long weekend blitzes, no flavour-of-the-day enforcement, no more humorous stories about those who compromise public safety. Rather, every day, 24-7, OPP officers will be deployed in an all-out effort to put an end to the senseless carnage,” Fantino wrote in an open letter to the citizens of Ontario dated Jan. 3.

Fantino explained the move had nothing to do with Woolley on a personal level and the officer will continue his regular duties with the OPP.
