We received a complaint that council for the Municipality of St.-Charles discussed items in closed meetings on May 15, 2012, June 19, 2013, and May 29, 2014 that did not fit within the exceptions to the open meeting rules. The Ombudsman found that council for St.-Charles contravened the Municipal Act when it discussed audit reports, management letters, and other auditor findings and recommendations in closed session during each of the three meetings. Discussions of individual staff performance and conduct, which ensued as a result of the review of the audit report and management letter, fell within the exceptions for personal matters and labour relations.

Distracted Driving



Ontario has some of the stiffest penalties in Canada for drivers who choose to use their hand-held cell phones, other electronic communications / entertainment devices or engage in other activity that distracts them while driving. Multi-tasking has no place behind the wheel There are many forms of distracted driving that are illegal, dangerous and account for preventable deaths on Ontario roads every year. Talking on a cell phone, texting, reading a device screen, watching videos or movies, eating/drinking, personal grooming, adjusting the GPS/radio/CD player, playing extremely loud music and tending to kids in the back seat all qualify as distracted driving.


Even talking to passengers and driving while fatigued (mentally and/or physically) are considered forms of distracted driving.

Consequences of a distracted driving conviction include:


-      A fine of $400, plus a victim surcharge and court fee, for a total of

        $490 if settled out of court

-       A fine of up to $1,000 if you receive a summons or fight your ticket

-       Three demerit points on your driving record


You can also be charged with careless driving if you endanger others by being distracted behind the wheel, which includes using both hand-held and hands-free devices. If convicted, you will automatically receive:


 -          Six demerit points

 -          Fines up to $2,000 and/or

 -          A jail term of six months

 -          Up to two-year licence suspension


You can even be charged with dangerous driving (a criminal offence), with jail terms of up to five years.


Penalties for novice drivers if convicted of distracted driving, a novice driver (subject to the Graduated Licensing program) will be subject to escalating sanctions:


 -          The first occurrence will result in a 30-day licence suspension

 -          The second occurrence will result in 90-day licence suspension

 -          A licence cancellation and removal from the Graduated Licensing System for a third occurrence.

If you see a distracted driver who is endangering the lives of other road users, call 911 and report them to police.
