If the video clearly shows you not stopping then the evidence against you will likely lead to a conviction, if it shows you inching along you could insist that you stopped for a split-second and that the frame rate just might have missed it. If you have 11 months from offence date to trial date you might be able to apply for an 11B stay of charges.
The offence date was february 13, 2013. I met with the prosecutor on april 11, then I asked for a trial which is set for January 22, 2014. Will i still be able to apply for the stay of charges?
Can you share what happened on your date at the court & what was the outcome?

Out of curiosity was the lesser charge S.144 (12)?
Does the video show the colours of the lights at the intersection? If so, what where they? does it also show that your rims do not stop? At the time the streetview pictures were taken the white lines appear faded (http://goo.gl/maps/PLiai), can they be seen on the video? what did the officer write in his notes?
I was traveling east bound on ellesmere road making a right turn onto markham road to go north. All lights were red and vehicles waiting to make a left turn from markham road south to ellesmere westbound were given the green arrow. Video shows this. I noticed this and kind of just slowed my car and rolled it a little before making the turn. The line cannot be seen in the video. The officer wrote that i slowed down but did not stop at the line.
The lesser charge was 136(1)(a) failing to stop at the line
If you are travelling EAST bound on Ellesmere and making a RIGHT turn on Markham road,
then technically you would be turning in SOUTH direction (not North as you've stated)
