“To be clear, there’s no doubt that a police services board chair or member cannot tell the police, do a search warrant, arrest this person. Of course. But that would be a different issue. That’s interference in a police investigation. But to have the police services board chair say, oh, it’s operations, we can’t get involved, is basically shirking his responsibility.
“The board is the civilian representation of the public. They’re there to uphold the public interest. They’re your voice and mine. So when the police chief runs away from an issue, and the board runs away from the issue, who’s left to give us answers? Nobody.”
