On Friday, March 21, 2014 the Meaford Independent posted and editorial by Mr. Stephen Vance.  In that editorial, Mr. Vance made mention of Chief Sornberger answering a question posed to him by a Meaford resident regarding whether or not a study had been conducted to assure there was adequate police radio signal strength across the entire Municipality of Meaford. 

After some hesitation Chief Sornberger indicated there was a study completed that indicated that Radio signal strength was not an issue.  This prompted a second question by the resident; “if someone wanted a copy of the study and asked for it would the Chief provide one?”

Again, the Chief said “yes.”

For the record, an email was sent to Chief Sornberger on March 22, 2014 asking for a copy of the aforementioned study.  His reply to the request was: 

Mr. Tichbourne,

I’m sorry but I am not going to be able to address your request.

Bill Sornberger
