So this cop just goes around filming and tweeting under taxpayer's dime? Don't regular news outlets do it for free?

He is the spokesperson for the Ontario Provincial Police's Highway Safety Division.

The news goes to him when they need news...

How about we just convert the highways into one large conveyor belt and the vehicles are stationary?
We increase the capacity of the highway by 400% and no accidents.

Peterbuilt is already testing them in the US . I think one just ran from LA to Jacksonville FL for the first time last week. It has a human driver behind the wheel as backup. The automation is currently only on the interstate. The human driver has to get the truck on/off the interstate

One of these things is actually possible in the foreseeable future and it isn't replacing highways with giant conveyor belts. Automated transport is coming and society will be better for it.

I doubt he even leaves the office. Probably just sits there posting videos on twitter all day.

Nice 100k gig with a great pension

He is not on the Sunshine list (Information on all public sector employees who were paid $100,000 or more in 2016 and are subject to the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act.)

His office is a van


He is at the autoshow in Toronto

Umm...yes he is. He's right there on page 1. Dude makes $141,000/year. He's been on the sunshine list for 10 straight years now. Media coordinator making almost 150k, that's a sweeter gig than I thought. Mind-blowing how overpaid some of these people are for what they do.
