I do hope if it was an office victim they do a thorough investigation.
I do hope if it was ANY victim they do a thorough investigation.
Some do and some don't it helps the probability of conviction when done properly. Truly any slack a$$ investigation can be dismissed!

He will be damaged goods, whether he wins or loses in court. The stigma will never disappear.

It would be pretty unfair to both the accused and the alleged victim if the investigation isn't thorough.

If Colin had been re-elected and is now being charged with a sexual assault would Kelowna taxpayers foot his legal defense? If so, Kelowna citizens got lucky and didn't know it.

You can bet that City Manager GilCHRIST knew about this investigation through his position of City Manager and liaison with the RCMP. One has to wonder about what else has been covered' up.

Victims of sexual assault are usually protected by the Courts. Let's face it they have gone through enough already why spread their names through the media.

Chances are there will be a ban on naming the victim and should be.

Because until he is formally charged it would be pretty irresponsible to publish anything and could be charged with libel if proven wrong.

I mean really shake your head and think about it. Peoples lives can be ruined over false accusations.

If he's guilty then I have no sympathy for him but if he's innocent then I feel sorry for him.

It's can be an underage assault thing, or it's can be an adult sexual assault thing, or it's can be a false accusation. Your inference to pedophilia is definitely a standard unsubstantiated "the truth" thing.

Well, spending hasn't changed. The mayor has a good opportunity to show some leadership and slim down City Hall.

No, there has to be sufficient evidence the allegation may be true.
