Two people well known for OPP bashing have teamed up to shame the “upper echelon” of the OPP for their incompetence and what they believe to be deadly slow response times of the OPP. Reeve Bailey stated “It’s very important that the upper echelon realize that they made a mistake”.
North Huron Reeve Bernie Bailey said, “I think we all realize that if there is a family disruption or if there is an accident and your OPP officer is going to the bathroom in Clinton, it’s a long way to North Huron, or to Howick, or Morris-Turnberry.”
North Huron council and Doug Kuyvehoven claim this “shame station” is for OPP officers to have some place to use the washroom. They claim there is no other option other than the Clinton detachment for officers to use a washroom, and this adds 30+ minutes to the response times.
WFP hopes police officers are smart enough to figure out to go to the bathroom by themselves without Bailey & Kuyvenhoven telling them what to do. They have been doing it since the invention of policing without Kuyvenhoven & Bailey’s shame station.
There are a myriad of options police offices have to use the bathroom, from hospitals they frequently visit in the course of their duty, gas stations, convenience stores, town halls, Tim Hortons, restaurants, Public Works buildings, any government building, friendly store owners they met on foot patrol, rest stations with porta potties, truck stops, etc.
This same team of Kuyvenhoven & Bailey showed up to the OPP costing meetings and spread lies and fear. Doug Kuyvenhoven even claimed to speak for EVERY Wingham business when spewing his lies of support for the former Wingham Police, and Bernie Bailey slammed them for their slow response times.
