Effective immediately OPP members are not allowed to enter Buck & Jo’s, a Wingham restaurant. Staff and Customers do not feel comfortable around anyone that is carrying a firearm, even more so when those armed individuals are unaccountable. No one should be above the law. If anyone enters Buck & Jo’s carrying a loaded firearm expecting/demanding “free” coffee and/or donuts, 911 will be called and they will be video recorded. OPP officers are only allowed when invited or with a warrant.
As more videos and victims of OPP corruption/abuse come forth, the fear of the police is at an all time high in Wingham. Numerous law abiding citizens have expressed terror of the OPP. Citizens are afraid to drive for fear of being pulled over, and full grown adults are afraid to speak up publicly for fear of police retaliation.
Virtually every customer at Buck & Jo’s in the last 2 years has had a bad interaction with the police, or one of their friends and family have. One of the owners of Buck & Jo’s was instrumental in disbanding the Wingham police after they arrested him at a council meeting for suspicion of recording a public council meeting. Town staff, councillors, Reeve and officer Kevin MacAdam lied, deleted body camera footage, signed false statements and committed perjury. Despite their overwhelming collusion, they lost due to Wingham Cop Watch video recording the evening from multiple angles. Police corruption is real. The Wingham police were disbanded shortly after.
Everyone is strongly encouraged to video record all police interactions.
