This petition had 55 supporters

On June 4th 2016 there was a two vehicle accident on the King George Highway. Miramichi Police Officer Const. Eric Pomerleau responded as back up to a call of shoplifting.

According to court documentation the sensor in his vehicle registered his speed at 131km/h

The posted speed limit is 50-60km/h

According to court testimony the loss prevention officer did not feel he was in danger. Also two of the individuals driving along the same highway that day said they did not hear the sirens of Pomerleau police cruiser until he was right behind them.

The court has found Const. Eric Pomerleau guilty of dangerous driving on July 19th 2017

According to the CBC article Deputy Chief Brian Cummings "confirmed Pomerleau will remain on the job until sentencing."

Pomerleau has been found guilty of dangerous driving. Which is a criminal offence according to the Criminal Code of Canada.

The law states:

"Dangerous operation of motor vehicle:

249 (1) Every one commits an offence who operates

(a) a motor vehicle in a manner that is dangerous to the public, having regard to all the circumstances, including the nature, condition and use of the place at which the motor vehicle is being operated and the amount of traffic that at the time is or might reasonably be expected to be at that place;


(2) Every one who commits an offence under subsection (1)

(a) is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years; or

(b) is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction."

Sentencing is on Sept. 20th 2017 however we ask that The City of Miramichi take action against allowing Pomerleau to remain on The Miramichi Police Force until sentencing and there after.

It is simply not responsible to allow someone that was a danger to the public by dangerous driving and has been found guilty of this in court to remain on The Miramichi Police Force.

If it was any other citizen in The City of Miramichi would we still be employed?
