      I think there needs be serious consideration given to the use of bylaw officers to ticket speeders, red light runners, etc. so higher-priced police have the opportunity to deal with more serious infractions. I pitched the idea to Tory MPP Bob Wood years ago and got the cold shoulder. But I still think it deserves having a look at.
