Or could it be part of the 3 fraud cases under review worth big dollars that colonel klink refers to?
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

Good catch. Let's hope.

Fraud is not a victimless crime. If these things get swept aside it isn't much of a deterrent to the next person who sees an opportunity to take advantage of the trust that has been placed in them and take that which isn't theirs.

They could go on to a new position and do the same again to another community/group/organization.

Or maybe they go into politics where the pot gets really big. :)

You are right Oily, look at the fiasco with the woman that embezzled money from the Hospice Society in Kelowna. She also ripped off the Hospice in Nanaimo.

That's a great example. Once these folks have some success doing this they become a little more emboldened each time they are given that trust.

I am concerned that the folks being investigated might have some influence in high places which may be impeding the process.

I hope that's not true but you never know these days. The people whose money has been misappropriated need to keep pushing for a resolution. They are entitled to answers.

The system seems again and again to be stacked in favour of the wrong doers and against the victims.

Wonder if crown has closed the file on this one? It is now September, 2019.

I would say at this point that is a pretty reasonable assumption.
I guess the perpetrator(s) will get away with it. My suspicion is that it helps to have friends in high places.

Hopefully, I am wrong.

The investigation has not been closed. Can't say anything more than that.
As for the perps getting away with it, this is Canada so most likely a slap on the wrist then a hug for inflicting the corporal punishment of wrist slapping. Then a healing circle and so on.....
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

Well, another year has gone by and Crown appears to be still MULLING:

https://www.castanet.net/news/Penticton ... g-DPA-file

Will this situation ever have a conclusion? Only Crown knows for sure. So I will sit back and wait and wait and wait … wait another year. Unbelievable.

That article mentions Kerri Milton and quotes her. The insinuation is that she may be involved.
As someone who knows Kerri, haven't seen her in years, I would be very surprised and disappointed if she acted inappropriately when running the DPA.

That is how people get away with this kind of thing.
By being the type of person you trust and wouldn't expect.

If it was exactly the type of person you'd expect then they wouldn't be in a position of trust.
That is why these crimes (if there is a crime) are usually taken very seriously.

But look at the facts.
Was abruptly fired after years at the theatre without explanation, left DPA under a cloud of controversy and unaccounted for funds lost, left the save the Penmar society under a cloud of controversy and unaccounted for funds lost, lost job at Victoria abruptly and after only a year without explanation... only one common denominator there. Maybe she just has bad luck.

And all that was just what was published online in the press. Seems fishy.

Well OllyV ... what can we say? Another month gone by and to coin the old Christmas saying … "and all through the courts not a creature was stirring … not even crown council". Wonder when? Wonder when?

Sadly, my pessimistic side thinks this ship has sailed.

It's like a television series that was cancelled before getting to see the final episode.
I suppose we'll have to get used to not knowing how this one ends.

I cannot believe the DPA membership isn't up in arms over this loss of money. I wonder if the DPA or City is communicating with the membership as to where this case is or isn't. Something tells me … they are not. Unbelievable.

Yeah, I doubt it as well.
Unfortunate. If some folks hard earned money was misappropriated they deserve to know what happened.

But, maybe they have been informed and it just wasn't reported.
