Blogger Investigation

South Bruce | by Manny Paiva  

They know who is behind a blog that harasses municipal employees

"It's the worst kept secret."

South Bruce Peninsula Mayor John Close says they know who is behind an online blog harassing municipal employees, but now it's a matter of proving it.

Close says the OPP and the Ministry of Labour are investigating the case under Bill-168.

The bill makes it a criminal offence to harass people in the workplace -- and Close says that includes both staff against staff, and the public against staff.

He says they are mandated to follow this investigation through to its conclusion.

Close calls the blog a "blight" on the community because it's not dealing with issues, money, or facts.

He says it's simply about degrading other people and it is destroying the community.

Close says they're also calling on the community to bring forward any information, and to help put a stop to these type of actions.

He's hoping the police investigation moves ahead quickly, but adds he understands that police services are stretched right now.
