Yesterday's Waterloo Region Record carried the following story titled "Councillors in lawsuit should step down, say residents". The Cambridge residents mentioned are part of a Facebook group called "Cambridge Citizen discussion on local politics". I will also add that there is lengthy discussion and comments on The Cambridge Advocate as well on this topic. The Cambridge Advocate can be accessed by Google or by the link I have on the right side of the Elmira Advocate.

Margaret Barr, a former Councillor herself, suggested that the two councillors named in the lawsuit against the Waterloo Regional Police Service (WRPS) should take a leave of absence from Cambridge Council until the fall election. The behaviour alleged in the lawsuit specifically names now councillor Frank Monteiro as one of the perpetrators and now councillor Mike Mann as one of the senior officers whom one of the Plaintiffs felt did not respond adequately to her concerns and complaints. There was more than one Plaintiff Officer who named Frank Monteiro as a perpetrator.

Both officers, now councillors have denied or at least stated that they would like the opportunity to explain themselves or give their side of the story.
