Metrolinx contractor allegedly assaulted a resident, cut tree illegally

If a video posted online is to be believed, a Metrolinx contractor (gently) assaulted a pushy observer as he was filming the cutting (or trimming) of a tree on Hollis Ave. The tree does not appear to be on Metrolinx’s right of way.

The video started a long discussion on Twitter, and Metrolinx promised to investigate. It’s been six days, though, and no response has been given. They say the tree was not cut down, but have not said whether the person in the video (who seems to be a contractor) has been disciplined.
