Obviously I am going to choose early resolution again but I am just wondering if I should file a complaint against the officer or if I am incorrect in assuming I couldn't be charged for an offense that I am awaiting trial for.
Former Ontario Police Officer. Advice will become less relevant as the time goes by !
Then you can track down what the fine was for and decide if it is something you were wrongly charged for and then you can pursue it and have it removed from your record and get reimbursed for it.

Outstanding fines issued under the HTA result in a suspension of a drivers licence.
You need to go service Ontario and/or your local court to determine what the fine is.
Without a valid plate/permit, the officer doesn't even owe you the courtesy of letting you drive away after the infraction. He could force you to tow the vehicle from the roadside or contnue ticketing you if you chose to drive away.
