A Car Rally At Wasaga Beach Was Chaos This Weekend & Hundreds Were Charged (VIDEOS)

A car rally at Wasaga Beach this weekend resulted in hundreds of calls and charges due to a large gathering of unruly motorists.

According to the OPP, the Huronia West Detachment had increased the number of on-duty officers in the region ahead of the unsanctioned event. However, that appears to have done little to dissuade people from attending.
