What do you say when the Chief of Police is reported to be in Florida?

Halton Regional Police Chief Stephen Tanner is reported to have been or is still in Florida.

Global News broke the story an hour or so ago.

No notice of a police convention in Florida.

There is a report that the Chief is in Florida on a property related matter.

Another report has police union members outraged.

The Gazette has reached out to Oakville Mayor Rob Burton, who is the current Chair of the Police Services Board – the level that hires the police Chief.  He has not returned our request for comment.

Public trust just goes down the toilet.

    These people should be fired!

    Apparently good judgment is no longer a requirement for leadership.

    If the report is true, enough !! Enough of the apologies from these politicians and others in position of authority, who are supposed to be our leaders.


    They all should have known better. If they did not know better they are not fit to hold their positions.

    If common folk likevyou and me understand foreign non-essential travel is off limits, any person in a position of authority clearly should have known. No question !
