i am looking for any law that support my claim that he is not allowed to do this.... does anyone know of any?

no law, rather sounds some notes got misread or notes written incorrectly

also in the disclosure the officer stated that he was coming in the opposite direction on the 401, had to pull a uturn and then catch up with me. he said he did this in under 1 3/4kms..... do you think that this is possible??

absolutely possible and done a lot in the area, often just thru the grass medians too

An officer has the discretion to issue a ticket for a lower speed than what is actually driven at. That is old case law. If you were driving at 115, obviously you drove at 110. An officer cannot raise the speed to something that did not occur unless he/she wants to lie. For your scenario, your only avenue is a trial. You have to admit you were speeding at 115, controlled by cruise control. Get a mechanic to check that it works correctly and bring it to court.

In a recent appeal court decision, a Justice has the ability to raise a speeding charge to match the evidence given. But again that doesnot apply to you

think you have misread the notes > officer was WB, has your vehicle EB at 135km/hr near the 128 3/4km marker......uturned and caught up to your vehicle at the 130km marker, called the communications centre and then stopped your vehicle at the 132km marker

Were you the only vehicle on the road....could the officer's radar reading come from a different car? This is what you'll have to prove....

I suggest you dont mention that you were "speeding" at 115 km/hr. This proves the crowns case as to speeding allegation. Quantum of speed is still to argue. Good luck.
