“Today the Saanich Police Board informed Mayor Richard Atwell that they would be requesting the Honourable Suzanne Anton, Minister of Justice, to have her Ministry conduct an investigation into recent activities by Mayor Atwell that the Board believes puts its members in an untenable position.
The Board has requested Mayor Atwell to step aside as Chair until the Board receives advice from the Minister.
The appointed members of the Board, and staff of the Saanich Police Department, will not comment further until they receive direction from the Minister.”
