Leaders questioned on photo radar

Provincial campaign trail brings up issue from the 90s

All three provincial leaders were pressed about putting photo radar in school zones on Tuesday, after calls from municipal leaders.

Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair has been pushing for more photo radar on the province's roads for over a year. He has stressed that it would save and make money in a time when municipal budgets were feeling a pinch.

Now he and Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly have suggested to prioritize putting them in school zones. Police is Guelph have also weighed in.

Premier Kathleen Wynne says she hasn't received a formal request on the matter.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath says while its important to have traffic slow down in school zones, her party hasn't looked into this initiative.

Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak says there would be no more photo radar in the province if he is elected premier. Tory premier Mike Harris killed the initiative shortly after the NDP installed cameras to catch speeders in the 1990s.
