Beacon Hill-Cyrville councillor accused of trying to induce election rival to drop out
Coun. Tim Tierney has been charged with corrupt practices under municipal election laws for allegedly trying to induce an opposing candidate to drop out of the recent municipal election in Ottawa.
The Ontario Provincial Police have charged the Beacon Hill-Cyrville councillor under section 90 (3) of the Municipal Elections Act, which states that it’s an offence to offer or promise “any valuable consideration” to induce a candidate to withdraw his candidacy in an election.
If found guilty, Tierney would be forced to vacate his position on council and barred from running in the next two elections.
For those unfamiliar with Tim T., they may remember him as one of the two key people who shut down a showing of Killing Europe at the last minute, along with social justice warrior lawyer, Richard Warman, from the Ottawa Public Library.
