Canada: Public safety minister wants to know ‘downside’ of red-light cameras for New Brunswick

Public Safety Minister Carl Urquhart says he wants to see for himself how red-light cameras have worked in Edmonton before considering the possibility of allowing them in New Brunswick.

There’s currently no legislation in the province that allows red-light cameras to be used, but cities like Fredericton are eager for the change.

Since becoming minister, Urquhart has meet with chiefs of police in New Brunswick and municipality stakeholders about changing the Motor Vehicle Act.

But he’s adamant he wants to see how they work for himself before his department takes another step.
