Victoria Police Chief Frank Elsner Investigated for inappropriate Twitter exchanges with wife of officer

DID THE MAYORS OBSTRUCT THE ELSNER INVESTIGATION?
“Records obtained by FOI leave little doubt that Mayor Helps and Mayor Desjardins hid allegations of sexual harassment raised against Chief Elsner.”

The other aspect of this FOI request that David briefly touched upon last month was that originally the Police Board stated that there were no emails between Helps and Desjardins as they had all been deleted. It wasn't until Focus filed another FOI act request and received emails that the Board has previously claimed were deleted that it became apparent that the original response had not been truthful.
Apparently the Police Board has no documented records retention policy which sounds entirely inept to me. Anything they don't want the public to see they just delete and unless it gets captured inadvertently elsewhere then they won't ever be held accountable?

So much to unpack here:
How the mayor's acted in the first place.
How they acted to cover up both Elsner's action and their own.
How city staff are still tasked with the ongoing work of covering up the mayors' actions.
How taxpayers would have been spared $1 million if this hadn't been bungled so badly.
Why every other councillor was too chickens&@t to call the mayor out on knowingly covering up sexual harrassment and groping.
Why, with much of this having been revealed, did 12000 Victorians vote the mayor back in? (Option 1: they are fine with sexual harrassment. Option 2: they possess the intelligence of a rock.)
With such an ugly story uncovered, how did candidate Helps secure endorsements from former beloved Canadian icon David Suzuki, as well as from women?
I could go on, but my sense is that the metoo era completely passed this town by.
