HAMILTON, ON, Dec. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - The union that represents a Hamilton
paramedic charged with violating the Ambulance Act says the public
should allow the justice system to perform its job before weighing in
with ill-informed speculation and misguided judgment.
"This case is still before the courts and that presumes innocence," said
Mario Posteraro, president of Local 256 of the Ontario Public Service
Employees Union which represents paramedics in Hamilton and area.
"The judicial system is moving forward, our member is being represented
by excellent legal counsel and a final resolution to the case is still
many months away. All I can ask is that the public and the media
respect the rights and privacy of our member."
The case is scheduled to resume on May 27, 2014.
Posteraro said OPSEU will offer no further comment on the case at this
