On Helps' campaign page, she is now saying that the police board, not her, determined that the case against Elsner was closed. Heck she even later makes it sound like it was against her advice.
"And also being clear on what to say coming out of a meeting where a board decides this file is closed and we have confidence in the chief"
Yet all one needs to do is read the court documents to see where Helps states. https://opcc.bc.ca/w...mmissioner.pdf
"As the Discipline Authority we (not the Board) decided that we would accept the findings of the independent investigator"
In fact the PCC roundly criticized Helps and Desjardins for excluding the board and implying to the OPCC that the board had been fully consulted when it had not been. There was even a letter from one of the police board members demanding that Helps and Desjardins fully inform them of the situation.
Can anyone say the words pathological liar?
