The pandemic took our inquiring minds off some of the other important news items.

In the Courts we were surprised to learn that the  R. V. Sean Baird case had advanced a bit.

On September 8, 2020, the charges of fraud over and utter forged document against the accused were withdrawn.

Recall that Baird was originally charged with:

Uttering a Forged Document – Contrary to section 368(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada

Fraud over $5000 – Contrary to section 380(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada

Corrupt Practice (four counts) – Contrary to the Municipal Elections Act.

Marianne Meed Ward.

It would appear that Baird is still facing the four counts of Corrupt Practice.
A conviction under the Municipal Elections Act is pretty small potatoes.

The original complaint to the police is believed to have come from then newly elected Mayor Marianne Meed Ward.
