The escort affairMetro Police Chief William McCormack has reacted angrily to allegations that the force supressed a sex-for-money scandal involving force members.
He insists the Metro force conducted a "thorough" inquiry. Yet contradictory statements by a key player in the scandal have raised more questions. For example:
To his credit, McCormack has now invited the Ontario Police Commission -- a body with investigative powers -- to go through files on the case and put the doubts to rest.
However, even without seeing the files, commission Chairman Douglas Drinkwalter yesterday called it "a tempest in a teapot," saying "we don't have any big, grave concerns."
If that's his attitude, then Drinkwalter and the commission are off to a rocky start. What's needed is a thorough, independent review of this case, followed by a public accounting. Nothing less will do.
