I Have a 8Plate Sticker Fine Question..Please Help!

:evil: Just now, my partner got a ticket from the Military Police (MP) saying my plate sticker is supposed to be on the FRONT plate of my truck.
I was told at the registry that it goes on top corner of the BACK plate.
My truck is not a commercial vehicle and I can't find anywhere in the traffic act that says a personal vehicle's plate sticker goes on the front.
They want him to switch my plates around and they will waive the ticket, but then I am scared I will get a ticket for it being in the front.
I swear these idiots are after him personally, as I work in Ottawa and are followed my countless OPP and RCMP with no issues. He drives my truck once, boom.
Same MP who claimed he was texting at a stop sign when the MP was 3 cars away, "saw him look down 10 times" so MP followed him to work just to give him a 500.00 fine for texting while driving.
My partner wasn't texting, he took his phone out of his chest pocket as the seatbelt was pressing on it and put it in the console as he was stopped.

Do you happen to have a black lettered plate? I believe practically all trucks are considered commercial regardless whether or not they are personally owned vehicles.

If so, the sticker goes on the front.

The charge is hand-held devices prohibited. There's no obligation to prove that the handheld device is in use (texting) and it sounds like it was given correctly.

(2) No person shall drive a motor vehicle on a highway while holding or using a hand-held electronic entertainment device or other prescribed device the primary use of which is unrelated to the safe operation of the motor vehicle.
