Police chief, cabbies meet

Police Chief Vern White met last night with Ottawa taxi drivers to ease relations, which had been strained by the acquittal of an off-duty officer accused of assaulting a cabbie at the Ottawa Airport.

“I guess if I had a goal, it was to ensure that our relationship remains intact through a difficult time,” White said.

Amrik Singh, president of CAW Local 1688, said he’s heard a lot from his members about last week’s verdict.

“Most of it is anger and sadness about the decision that was made by the court,” he said, adding he appreciates White making the effort to address their concerns.
