EXCLUSIVE: ON’s Ministry of Transportation Is Investigating One of Its Employees After Information Surfaced Linking Her to Prominent Peterborough Anti-Vaxxer

The Platypus reached out to the Ministry of Transportation after learning one of its employees is affiliated with anti-vaxxer extremist and Peterborough resident Tyler Berry.

Berry has been a vocal opponent of COVID-19 health measures, including the mandatory use of face coverings in most indoor settings, vaccinations, and rotating lockdowns.

He was recently charged after he and a small group of anti-vaxxers showed up at the home of Peterborough’s Minister of Health in an attempt to serve him with bogus legal documents.

A couple of the protestors approached Dr. Thomas Piggott’s door pretending they were neighbours welcoming his family to the neighbourhood. After speaking for a short time, Dr. Piggott became suspicious and proceeded to close the door. However, this was not before one of the protestors tried to serve him with the fake documents.

Having had the door slammed shut on them, the small group then stood outside the home of Dr. Thomas Piggott while live-streaming his property and waiting for the police.

Police were dispatched after Dr. Piggott called to report trespassers on his property and that he felt as though someone attempted to assault him.

In speaking with the group, Peterborough Police officers determined that they did not believe a crime had been committed based on the information they gathered.

Following the incident at Dr. Piggott’s home, two people, including Berry, were arrested. In the video below, Tyler and his girlfriend are both pulled over by police, and Tyler is then arrested.

The woman seen next to Berry in the vehicle is believed to be Jamie Buck, a fleet specialist with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation. She is the subject of the complaint I filed with the MOT.

Although it has not been confirmed, Buck’s government job may grant her access to the personal information of individuals who her boyfriend may attempt to harass in the future. This raises serious concerns.

Jamie Buck’s LinkedIn profile shows that she’s currently employed by Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation in Peterborough, Ontario.

Although the MOT was unable to provide specific information about this Buck, they emailed me the following statement:

MTO takes all allegations of the misuse of Ministry systems, processes, etc. for personal gain seriously to ensure that the highest level of integrity is maintained.

Unfortunately, we are unable to comment on the particular staff member due to confidentiality reasons and this being a potential internal human resources issue however we are looking into this and will take appropriate action where needed.

I have handed this matter off to the appropriate people from the Ministry who will investigate this further.

Roman Corpuz, Chief Information Officer / Assistant Deputy Minister Labour & Transportation

This story is one I intend to monitor closely, and I will let you know if anything develops.
