OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino served subpoena to appear in Cayuga court
Gary and Christine McHale have advised me that they attended Julian Fantino’s home in Woodbridge this evening where Fantino’s wife agreed to accept a subpoena on behalf of her husband to appear in a Cayuga courtroom to answer Gary’s questions during a bail variation hearing set to take place in March. Fantino was not at home.

McHale submitted a request for the hearing while in Cayuga this past Wednesday where he was filing a number of legal documents, including Small Claims Court actions and private informations (same process used by Jeff Parkinson after the OPP refused to lay an assault charge against Buck Sloat) with the Justice of the Peace. Some of these ‘informations’ relate to assaults on police officers and another witness who lied to police about what happened on Dec 01/07. More will be forthcoming.
McHale’s grounds for seeking a variation of his bail include:
an allegation that the arresting officer lied to him during his arrest with respect to the length of time he would have to spend in jail before being able to see a judge.
an allegation that Julian Fantino’s press release blaming us for the violence on Dec 01/07, and the bail conditions themselves are the result of discrimination against non-natives.
an allegation that the bail conditions, based on statements from Detective Murray’s testimony, were created due to direct or indirect political interference.
When Julian Fantino rushed to press on Dec 1st with his announcement falsely blaming non-native protesters for violence that was actually incited and perpetrated by the smokeshack thugs – before any investigation had been done – he made the dumbest mistake of his life.
More subpoenas will be delivered to some very well-known people (not Toby Barrett or Marie Trainer) in the coming days. None of them will be anxious to answer Gary McHale’s questions.
As Frontenac Ventures has proven, native lawlessness and their OPP enablers can be defeated. The steadfast resistance of Two Tier Justice has finally brought the attention of both the media and the politicians in a big way (Whewwww!!!). The next phase of the struggle against Two Tier Justice – the ‘Battle of the Paperwork’ – has begun.
Is it the beginning of the end for Two Tier Justice? I hope so, but I’m not breaking out the champagne just yet.
P.S. Christine advises that Fantino’s neighbourhood would be a great place to hold a protest.
