Saskatchewan Party Gives Conflicting Stories On How They Came Into Possession Of Stolen Police Reports
Buckdog told you in February how the governing Saskatchewan Party Caucus was under investigation by the Regina City Police when it became public that they were in possession of two stolen police files.
"Since the Sask Party originally released the stolen police reports last spring, Justice Minister Don Morgan and Deputy Premier Ken Krawetz are on record as saying they were received just weeks earlier. Krawetz told reporters they arrived at the Sask Party caucus office in a brown envelope.
Two weeks later, Brad Wall told reporters the reports were received in the spring of 2006, and his chief of staff, Reg Downs, revealed just last week that he found them in a brown envelope in his mailbox at home that same year.
Last week, the Regina Police Service issued a news release stating that the “removal and dissemination” of the reports from police headquarters was “unauthorized.”
“To sum up, the Sask Party had illegally obtained police reports in its possession and posted them on its website,” said NDP MLA, Frank Quennell.
“We have four of the most senior members of the Sask Party telling very different stories. It’s clear that someone is providing inaccurate information.”
Here is the key to this mystery ... Reg Down's address and phone number is not listed in the Regina City phone directory - how did an 'anonymous' person from the Regina City Police know where to drop the envelope?!
