Mini Group Cruise Arrests

Just got this that a pile of Mini's got nailed during a group cruise on the 400 near Barrie.Sure a good reason not to go on a group cruise IMO

"The report on A Channel Barrie news was not totally clear but it seems Commissar Fantino's boys nailed a whole convoy of Minis on #11 North of Barrie on the weeekend. From the footage shown there were several cruisers pulling out and pulling over a lot of the convoy of Minis (new version) Supposedly nailed several for 50 over and seized cars etc. Also apparently 11 cars (not sure if they were all Minis) had children in them and the OPP are involving the Childrens Aid Society."

The story starts at the 2.55 mark.

more here

I'll make this brief for now, I've been reading instead of being part of the family.

Mini club arranges spring drive to run "The Rattler". I have never heard this term, but they are talking about Muskoka 13. Old Ontario winter rally territory.

Due to past numbers, event organizer informs OPP to prevent any misunderstandings or accidents as the convoy moves from Colossus to Webers. Also informs club members that he has informed OPP.

1 OPP officer is waiting at colussus as cars meet up for convoy. This officer tells club members that the 400 is clear, just him and his sarg.

As they collectively roll north on the 400, in the middle lane, being passed by all of the left lane traffic, the convoy is pulled over. A News is already there waiting with the cruisers to get shots of the mini convoy being pulled over.

A handful of mini drivers receive speeding tickets.

A News carefully words their broadcast to make it sound like mini drivers have kids in car - none of the mini drivers charged had kids in the car. The biggest ticket seems to only be $240 which isn't much.

Does the Mini Club have a forum of some kind so we can read up exactly what happened from their own words?

Close call as we were on an exotic cruise in that area too, on saturday afternoon after i met up with gearhead at the e46 meet.

Apparently there was also a porsche cruise there, and my friend tells me there was a 997 (C4S) that flipped over

Hopefully the gumball goes well as planned and lets hope this doesnt happen this year

Like one of the poster on the mini forum said, "why would you inform the OPP of events like this".
I mean for sure there are some people in the event that is going to speed.

jeez... it was a huge mistake to inform the OPP bout this event. there was a modified car meet here in montreal last year that happened in the west island and someone posted a huge invite to the event on facebook, local forums, etc. needless to say, the SPVM (montreal police) were right there at the entrance to the carpark, pulling every modded car over and checking for illegal lights, tints, exhausts, etc. bout 50% of the cars that went got tickets for one thing or another...

lesson of the day --- KEEP ALL MEETS LOW PROFILE!
this is esp true when dealing with the OPP considering that they are probably the strictest cops around canada when it comes to anything that has to do with speeding (even if its just a little over the limit)

now who's interested in doing the speed limit on the highways around ontario at rush hour with me? we can line up 4 cars side by side to block the entire highway and show the OPP what traveling at or under the speed limit really means.

reading threads like this infuriates me cos most of the time car meets are pretty harmless. the cops always assume that if there's a car meet it means everyone's going to be racing illegally (ie fast and the furious style)

Canada can be very gay at times. Don't they have something better to do?

Can someone send this to a REAL news station, and bring to light how the police use a charity event and bias news to their own advantage?
