Earlier, we reported the ministry of public safety and solicitor general has been polling British Columbians to find out whether they think photo radar would be effective in reducing speed and crashes on the province's roads. But what does the ministry's political boss, Kash Heed, think? Well, as you can see, he seemed to have some troubled answering that question directly. Although the former West Vancouver chief constable reaffirmed such a system wouldn't be part of the government's throne speech commitment to reduce dangerous driving. The Liberals scrapped photo radar in 2001 over the objections of police chiefs.
