Mayor Watson annoyed loophole isn't closed for Quebec red-light runners

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Sun, March 18, 2017

Mayor Jim Watson wants city management to explain why Quebec motorists are still escaping fines when they’re caught by Ottawa’s red-light cameras.

“I’m a little frustrated and annoyed this has taken so long,” Watson said Saturday.

Watson said he sent a note to city manager Steve Kanellakos once he saw Postmedia’s story about the estimated 5,700 Quebec-plated vehicles not getting tickets after they were caught by red-light cameras in 2016.
