DEAN FORTIN SAYS HE WANTS ’40 MORE COPS’ IN VICTORIA: Control freak socialist mayor wants feds, province to pay for them

Mayor Dean Fortin said it is unfair that municipalities like Victoria, Saanich, Oak Bay, Central Saanich and Vancouver have to pay 100 per cent of policing costs when so many municipalities do not.

“I see it as a two-tier system. It’s unfair. All Canadians are equal and we all should have that opportunity to have that 10 per cent discount,” Fortin said.

He said 10 per cent of policing costs is a significant amount of money.

“Emergency services – fire and police – are about 40 per cent of our budget. I think policing is about $40 million, so 10 per cent is $4 million. That’s 40 more cops.

“So we could really address a lot more challenges and issues that we have, if we were treated on an equal basis,” Fortin said.

Dean Fortin says it is unfair that the City of Victoria has to pay for 100% of its Victoria Police Department budget.

He wants the Federal Government of Canada, led by the Conservative Party of Canada, and the provincial government of the province of British Columbia, led by the BC Liberals, to pay for 10% of the City of Victoria’s police budget, equivalent to about $4,000,000 of a $40,000,000 VicPD budget, the amount needed to hire 40 more police.

A link to the stimulus-spending socialist mayor’s website is provided in the comments below, where the insane proposal is explained.

Do we really need 40 more police in Victoria?

Of course not.

    With regards to the story about more police. We do not need more police, we need the police that we now have to learn to obey the law as well as uphold it. The taxpayers are now over taxed for services they dont get. The criminals get free laywers and the victims and the taxpayers get the bill. I say take money and have free legal for victims and also do somehting about all the offences police are committing .
    There was a story on the news the other night. it had to do with a man who had just moved to victoria and bought a home there. He is to get married ina few weeks. The police saw this innocent man who is a business man and mistook him for someone that was a person who committed a crime. They went to his vehicle and pulled a gun on him treated him with brutality and put him in back of a police car with no explanation. After they found out he was the wrong guy they let him go without any apology. He can sue for that and I hope he does. Welcome to Vicotria which is more like a police state with SS instead of those who are to serve and protect.
    We now have what is known as cop watch a sthey need to watched. the only comment after the incident above by police for what they did was this” well we have to protect the public as a safety issue, who protects us from them. the bullies in blue
