Cambridge city councillor Pamela Wolf has been found guilty of an alcohol related offence after a collision she was involved in last November.
Wolf had left an award ceremony at Bingemans in Kitchener when she hit another vehicle while making a right turn.
The 62-year-old councillor was given the minimum sentence of a one-year driving ban and a $1,000 fine for being in care and control of a vehicle with a blood alcohol level above 80 mg.
In a statement to CBC News, Wolf apologized to the driver of the other vehicle, her family, colleagues and constituents for her actions.
“No amount of alcohol is acceptable to drink and drive,” wrote Wolf. “I would like to move forward now and focus on continuing to represent the people of Cambridge to the best of my ability.”
