ONE CIRCUS IS ENOUGH! Mayor Alan Lowe warns of ‘media circus’ if secret investigation report into his Chief of Police Battershill is released now

CONCERNED CITIZENS’ COALITION CALLS FOR MAYOR ALAN LOWE TO RELEASE FULL REPORT INTO CHIEF BATTERSHILL NOW . . ..

CCC…  The Mayor of Victoria says that one circus is enough.  At least, he implies as much by feigning a concern that release of a report into his own Chief of Police is not warranted lest it produce a ‘media circus.’

We suggest that there is only one circus in town and that is at City Hall.  A man was stabbed in Centennial Square the other day, attended by Councillor Charlayne Thornton Joe.  That incident is a metaphor for the true condition of decay in downtown Victoria. 

Concerned Citizens’ Coalition calls for Mayor Lowe to release the report into Chief Battershill in its entirety immediately.  If there is reason to dismiss the Chief, that should be done forthwith also, of course.

BANN TASER USE BY VICTORIA POLICE PENDING MUNICIPAL RATIFICATION OF THEIR USE IN UPCOMING ELECTION . . .

We also call for the Victoria Police to desist from use of tasers pending the outcome of the election.  We call for the banning of their use by the Police, thereby making them an election issue.

MAYOR ALAN LOWE SHOULD RESIGN FROM CHAIRING THE  VICTORIA POLICE BOARD . . .

Finally, we call for Mayor Lowe to resign from his chairmanship of the Police Board, thereby facilitating the above recommendations.
