BC's Top Cop John Les Resigns
Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
British Columbias Top Cop John Les, Former small town Mayor and Dairy Farmer has resigned over a 9 month investigation from the attorney generals office where accusations over his benefitting from illegal land deals in his small town of Chilliwack when he served as Mayor.
Mr Les is quoted as being surprised he was under investigation for over 9 months, not learning of this until yesterday afternoon. Certainly suprising since his Ministry of the Solicitor General and Public Safety and the Attorney Generals office are tied at the "Hip" . How anyone kept this secret is anyones guess? If John Les is guilty of anything, it is cashing a Paycheque every two weeks, when ongoing accusations of incompetance by British Columbians and Federal Politicans for the state of Catch and Release or reduced sentencing of multi repeat Super criminals (Super Criminals are his Ministries brainchild of identifing Criminals who have criminal records and offences amounting in dozens of convictions or charges) One wondered why Criminals are allowed on our streets after the 2nd offence let alone over 50 offences.
I have written on his ineptitude over the years, both in mainstream media, crime articles, and Now Public, sometimes recieving mail from Mr. Les personally whereby he expressed his dissatisfaction with my reporting. I always duly responded to him in kind, quoting every statistic, fact, media story and crime journal from the media on multi, multi repeat criminals allowed to walk free on our streets to commit even more crimes against the taxpaying citizens of this province.
Mr. Les is quoted in the media that he is innocent of all accusations and resigned on moral grounds, a resignation on moral grounds many British Columbians believed should have been since day one when he took office, when many did not understand how a Dairy Farmer with no police experience could rise to the top as Solicitor General, when it has been clearly demonstrated over the years that Mr. Les was totally out of his element when it came to Fighting Crime, judging by the rampant increase in Gangland shootings and criminal enterprises operating with little impunity on the lower mainland of British Columbia certainly showed his inept ability to grasp crime.
Mr. Les will sit as a lowly MP where some believe he can do little damage.
Below is my previous Story on the Liberal Governments reigning "Gene Pool of Government Ministers" who may be the next Solitictor General and Public Safety Minister, I have also included their official resumes before they were Political Stars, including one former Politican who was a Fast Food Operator-part time Volleyball coach and now a sitting Member of BC's Provincial Parliament. What I fear is a Government reaching into a ever decreasing Gene Pool of non existant Police experience and appointing a Fast Food Proprietor as our next British Columbia Top Cop and Defender for our security and public safety.
Here is a list of Political appointees complete with the Resumes, who may chomp at the bit to wear the Golden Gun and Badge of Top Cop. This is a story I wrote last year, resulting yet again emails from the Liberal Government Politicians and Minions who lambasted me, though my employer backed me up completely, as I was only stating facts garnered from these Politicans official biographies where they state their previous occupations.
BC Solicitor General John Les resigns, accused of benefiting from a land deal
10 hours ago
VICTORIA — B.C.'s top cop resigned Friday after learning he is part of a police investigation involving allegations he may have improperly benefited from a land deal while he was mayor of Chilliwack.
John Les, now B.C.'s former solicitor general, said he knew there was some kind of investigation underway involving his former employer, but he didn't pay much attention to it because he believed it had nothing to do with him. But when he found out Friday he was part of the investigation into Chilliwack city hall, Les said he knew he must resign.
The criminal justice branch of the Ministry of the Attorney General issued a statement that it had appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the matter last June.
But the Chilliwack-Sumas MLA, who said he will retain his seat on the Liberal backbench, was vigilant about his innocence.
"I have no doubt whatsoever that at the end of this that I will be totally clear of what the allegations are," Les told The Canadian Press.
He said he did not know he was being investigated.
"I became aware late this afternoon that I'm apparently the subject of an investigation," said Les.
