Former Tory candidate fined for impaired driving

Progressive Conservative candidate  Chuck McShane has been hit with a $1,200 fine and a year-long ban from driving.

According to the Niagara Falls Review,  McShane appeared in front of a judge yesterday, pleading guilty to an impaired driving charge from February.

The paper reports he was also convicted on a similar charge in the 90s.

McShane has served as the president of the Niagara Falls PC Riding Association and ran unsuccessfully against NDP incumbent Wayne Gates in the 2018 provincial election.

Last year he also made a bid for regional council, but ultimately finished last out of the candidates.
