PASSENGER IN MOTOR VEHICLE AND THE POLICE LIED ABOUT HIS SEATBELT

This is a case where evidence of marijuana possession, a knife, breach of bail and obstructing police are excluded from evidence at trial resulting in an acquittal due to the illegal stop, search and questioning by a Peel police officer of a passenger in a motor vehicle without just cause.

The Judge found that the police officer had lied about the fact that D did not have his seatbelt on in order to further an otherwise impermissible line of questioning.
