TRURO - Truro Mayor Bill Mills will not be charged with inciting hate.
The Truro Police Service concluded its two-month investigation on Feb. 10.
"In this incident there is not enough evidence to support a charge under the Criminal Code of Canada," said Detective Const. Shari Barna.
Police launched the investigation following a complaint from Truro resident Darryl Moir after the Truro Daily News printed the mayor's comments suggesting Wood Street was a meeting place for gay men.
Mayor Mills had little to say about the decision Friday morning, but wasn't surprised by the result.
"I'll tell you this, if what I said wasn't true then I deserve to be investigated and that is the big issue," he said. "That's what people lose sight of pretty quick. If I was saying something that was way out in left field, wasn't true, wasn't a shred of evidence to it, then I can see why I'd be investigated.
"I've been thinking about a lot of things over the last two months and this will be the final thing I say. Mr. Trudeau said that governments have no business in the bedrooms of the nation, he didn't say anything about parks."
