Quebec’s public security minister says he’s ready to act to prevent high-ranking provincial police officers from having second jobs outside the force.

Martin Coiteux says he’ll modify the law if the police force doesn’t move to ban the practice.

Media have reported the officer in charge of operations on a highway near Montreal was dealing with a private business matter during a March 14 snowstorm that left 300 motorists stranded in their cars overnight.
