Motorcyclist gets clocked at 155 km/h in a 50 km/h zone; police officer finds him trying to hide between parked cars.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON.  July 17, 2013  It wasn’t quite what a Mississauga motorcycle driver expected Monday evening when he buzzed through a 60 mph zone and got clocked at 128 km/h.

At that speed the HRPS officer  doing  radar enforcement in the area of Walkers Line and New Street wasn’t able to catch the offender  but was able to make further observations, including the motorcycle accelerating to a speed of 155 km/h as it travelled northbound on Walkers Line from New Street and out of the officer’s sight.  This portion of roadway is a posted 50 km/h zone.

The officer methodically travelled up Walkers Line and near Harvester Road discovered the motorcycle and driver attempting to hide between two parked cars.

 A 28-year-old Mississauga man faces several charges including:  Racing, Speeding and Using Plates Not Authorized.  He is to appear in Burlington Court on August 20, 2013.

A little patience and a slow steady search for the offender should keep him on public transit for a spell.

Shane Cooper got left off the list; our apologies.

By Pepper Parr

BURLINGTON, ON.  July  2, 2013.  Somehow we missed one – there were xx people arrested and charged with various offenses last week and we reported on that occurrence but Shane Cooper got left out of that editorial roundup.  We wouldn’t want Mr. Cooper to feel left out – so here is what they nailed him for:

Shane COOPER (41 years) of Carlisle.
Conspiracy to traffic (2 counts)
Trafficking (Cocaine)
Trafficking (Marihuana) 2 counts
Possession for the Purpose (Marihuana) 3 counts
Possession for the purpose (Cannabis resin) 2 counts
Possession of Cocaine
Possession of Oxycodone
Possession Hydromorphone
Produce a controlled substance.

The first part of that series of arrests is detailed in a previous report.

Police in the Region spend the bulk of their time on traffic offenses and drug raids which usually includes the Guns & Gangs Guys as well.  The two seem to go together.

Elsewhere in the paper we pass along the view of our columnist Ray Rivers who thinks some drugs should be legalized.

Should marijuana be made legal? One man’s opinion.

By Ray Rivers

BURLINGTON, ON.  July 2, 2013  Canada was the first nation in the world to ban cannabis, back in 1923, driven to action by a transplanted Alberta magistrate, eugenicist and racist, pen-named ‘Janey Canuck’.   A prolific Maclean’s Magazine columnist whose book, ‘The Black Candle’, warned about the dangers of “Chinese opium peddlers” and “Negro drug dealers;” she convinced legislators to adopt prohibition without a word of public debate.

 So it was fitting that Maclean’s, in a recent issue on cannabis, reviewed the facts, acknowledged the error of its ways, and is now calling for legalization.  The facts can be summarized as follows:

 1.  Safety.  Well nothing is perfectly safe, but puffing ‘weed’ is safer than drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes, or adding salt to your steak. It is not addictive, doesn’t ‘gateway’ to other drugs, and smoking doesn’t cause cancer – in fact, may protect against it.

 2.  Wasting resources.  I thought this would appeal to fiscal conservatives, but alas!  Enforcement is costly, so is imprisonment and so are the courts.  People behind bars aren’t contributing to the economy, they are draining it.

3.  Protecting Children. Despite prohibition, more Canadian children have tried ‘grass’ than anywhere else in the west, including decriminalized Spain.

4.  Eroding societal values.  If the law is an ass, people will ignore it and hate the cops.  Legalization would kill black-markets and gangsters faster than a speeding bullet.  And aren’t prisons just training academies for inmates wanting to become better criminals?

 5.  Provincial budgets.  The LCBO gives1.2 billion dollars a year to the provincial government, in addition to the 13% HST and 10% licensing fee.  Why wouldn’t we want to regulate the production and sales of recreational cannabis and use the revenues to pay for public services?

 ‘The Black Candle’ was wrong, but it is never too late to do the right thing.  Back in the early 1970‘s The Royal Commission on the Non-Medical Use of Drugs (LeDain Report) called for de-criminalization of cannabis.  In 2002 a Senate committee reported that “… drug legislation was largely based on a moral panic, racist sentiment…” and also called for legalization.  Chretien and Martin started drifting towards de-criminalization but then Stephen Harper, another transplanted Albertan, like Ms. Canuck, came along to reverse progress.  Drug enforcement is back big time.  Today growing six hemp plants will get you an automatic 6 months in the big-house.

 Richard Nixon’s war on drugs in the US was an absolute failure.  Jails are half-filled with drug inmates, drug crime is at an all-time high and drug use in America has never been higher.  In light of this, many states have taken action to start decriminalizing drugs.  Washington and Colorado, are legalizing, developing infrastructure and rules for cultivation and marketing.  The US feds, like their Canadian counter parts, have ultimate jurisdiction, but they’re not interfering.  Is that because their last three presidents were self-proclaimed potheads?

 Stephen Harper claims to never have smoked ‘pot’.  So his head should be clear – right?  Not at all.  Last year, addressing the Summit of the Americas, he admitted “…that the current approach is not working. But it is not clear what we should do.”  Still ignorance hasn’t deterred him from going back to what doesn’t work – aggressive criminalization. 

 Since the Conservatives came to power in 2006, drug-related arrests have mushroomed by 41% and over 400,000 people have been arrested.  And, Harper can’t even articulate why.  In a 2010 YouTube clip the PM miserably failed to make a single coherent point in defense of his neo-con drug policy – just ended up mumbling something about drug cartels. 

 Now, if Harper is concerned about drug cartels he needs to visit Mexico.  That country used to have one of the toughest policies on drugs anywhere, which ultimately led to its deadly drug wars.   The wars became so vicious that the Mexican government has now decriminalized small quantities of all major narcotics. 

 Of course, Mr. Harper should have gone to learn the Mexican experience before he saddled us with his ill-advised, retro drug laws.  And why not take along his conservative ally, Rob Ford?  Toronto’s controversial mayor might be interested to know that smoking crack-cocaine is now legal in Mexico.

That didn`t take very long: pier records its first assault.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON. June 26, 2013.  Shortly after midnight , last night, a group of friends were visiting the Burlington Pier when they started conversing with another group of males.

Without warning, the group of males grabbed one of the men and one of them struck him in the head with a bottle.

The group then ran off, pursued by one of the victim’s friends.  Police were notified and located the accused near the intersection of Burlington Avenue and Lakeshore Road.

The accused was arrested and held for a bail hearing.

ACCUSED:  Mohammed ISSE, 31 yrs, of Brampton

 CHARGES:  Assault Cause Bodily Harm and Assault with a Weapon 

 The victim, an 18-year-old Stoney Creek youth, was taken to Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, treated for a head wound and released.

The public has taken to the pier – trey love the place. Others that don’t have a lot of love in their hearts throw bottles at one another – let’s beef up the security.

The pier has been open for less than two weeks – clearly it’s become the place to be for people from Stoney Creek.   Is it a safe place to be?  Of course it is – but some security presence wouldn’t hurt and video surveillance might be a good idea as well.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON  June 18, 2013.   Two Hamilton men are facing a multitude of criminal charges following a spree of break-ins to rural residential homes.

Police get a break; suspect surprised to see police cruiser, chase ensues.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON.  June 18, 2013  On Monday evening, shortly before 8:30 p.m. a male suspect got into an altercation with another male in downtown Burlington.  A threat with a weapon was made before the suspect drove away. 

Shortly thereafter, two police constables on routine patrol happened by chance to pull up behind the suspect.  The suspect sped off and entered an intersection against a red light and began driving in a dangerous manner.  The officers activated their emergency lights in an attempt to stop the suspect vehicle.

During a brief pursuit, the suspect drove directly at a patrol supervisor, who had to take evasive action to avoid a head-on collision.

At the intersection of Brant Street and Plains Road East the suspect entered the intersection against a red light and collided with two vehicles that had right of way.  The suspect vehicle smashed into a light standard, causing significant damage.  After the collisions, the suspect bailed from the car and fled on foot.  He was apprehended seconds later by the original officers who chased him on foot.  During the foot pursuit, one of the officers sustained a minor injury.  He was treated and released from hospital.

A 23-year-old Burlington man driving the first vehicle that the suspect hit was not injured.  A 48-year-old Burlington woman and her 11 yr old son, who were in the second car hit by the suspect, sustained minor injuries and were later treated and released from hospital.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) was called to the scene and assisted in the investigation.  The intersection was closed for five hours while the investigators measured the scene and collected evidence.

Several witnesses came forward and provided police with statements.  Any additional witnesses are asked to call the CRU at ext. 5065.

Joshua FARRAY, age 22 yrs, of Burlington has been charged with:

Flight from Police,

Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle,

Fail to Remain, 3 counts of Breach Probation,

Police upgrade murder charge to first degree murder.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON. June 14, 2015 As a result of further investigation, Halton Regional Police homicide detectives have determined the murder of Parmanand (Barry) DEBIE was a deliberate, pre-planned act and have accordingly upgraded the charge against Calvin GREEN to first degree murder.

GREEN will attend a bail hearing this morning at 10:00 a.m. at the Milton Provincial Court.

A number of Gazette readers have commented and complained that the police are being unfair with the language they are using and that it is a court of law that makes the decision as to guilt.

The role of the police is to investigate and then lay what they feel are appropriate charges under the Criminal Code Act.  A court of lay will then decide if the person is guilty or not guilty.

Those readers have a point.

Investigators conducted the investigation and as a result, the  Team arrested two targeted persons.  Both were found to be in possession of a quantity of marihuana and cocaine. 

The investigation was concluded when the Strategic Support Team members executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrant at a residence in Burlington. 

As a result of the arrests and drug warrant, investigators seized the following items:

  43 grams of cocaine

Dealing in drugs is a lucrative business – which helps to pay the lawyers you need.  Gotta be a better way of making a living.  But I guess as long as there are people who want to buy and use the stuff there are going to be people who will supply it.

The thieves are now on the run, working at not getting caught. Solid police work will catch them. You can help.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON.  June 4, 2013.  They are beginning to close in.  The police recovered a vehicle they believe was used by a pair of bandits that broke into a number of homes in the north Burlington and parts of Milton.

The car was stolen – of course – this luckless pair would not have owned a car – that would require an honest source of income.  The vehicle is a 2001 Buick Regal, silver in colour.

The Halton Regional Police are seeking the public’s assistance to catch these two.

Lots of them around – but did you notice one like this in North Burlington, maybe at a gas station. Occupants wearing baseball caps looking a bit on the scruffy side. It is information like this that catches thieves.

You may have seen them in the area, they are thought to have pulled in for gas or stopped at a convenience store in the south Milton area along the Derry Road corridor and in the north Burlington area along the Dundas Road corridor.  

The description of the suspects is sketchy – you may be able to add to it.

Suspect #1:

Male / White, muscular build, Mid 20’s, jogging pants and muscle shirt, dark hair with a beard (Scruffy looking)

Suspect #2:

Male / White, muscular build, Mid 20’s, jogging pants and muscle shirt, blond hair. 

Both suspects were believed to be wearing baseball hats and were between 5’9” and 6’2” in height.

The Halton Police would like to hear from any citizen who believes they may have seen the suspects or the suspect vehicle.  Anyone with information concerning these incidents is asked to contact the One District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4747 x 2415, or the Three District Criminal Investigations Bureau at x 2315, Crime Stoppers at 1- 800-222-TIPS(8477), through the web at or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637(crimes).
