The Ly’n King of the VPD
Constable Brian Montague
Media Relations Officer
Shortly after I published this post Constable
Montague replied and said he wasn’t going to deal with me any more. He also
advise the above picture is not him and asked me to remove it.
As far as the picture goes
I got it from Google Images after a search for "Constable Brian Montague
VPD" and all the pics with that name are that guy.
I said you're a liar and
I'm more inclined to believe Google. The picture stays until you can provide
another. I suggest you call Google and complain or provide me with another that
you approve of. Until then, the picture stays as is!
I am truly disappointed that you have failed to contact me. You made the mistake of putting your direct telephone number (Brian Montague T: 604-717-2807 ) at the bottom of your reply to my questions to the Mayor, the Chief and you about why the raids on the Jim’s Weeds Dispensaries and the SWAT team tactics used with no justification.
A reply from a Media Relations Officer was completely unexpected. I may only be a Blogger (http://goan-smee.blogspot.ca/) but I like to think of myself as half-assed decent Investigative Journalist asking a lot more relevant questions than the National Media lot who claim the title.
I replied to you and informed you who I was, the reasons for my complaint, and advised you I would phone you the next day tenth of September and did!
I have now phoned you twice, requested a return call, left my phone number and waited. Dead silence for over a week. Why did you bother to reply? I never expected one. If it was a compliment for the “fascinating approach”, Thank you!
If that was the only reason and you had no intentions of answering any questions then Fuck You! I truly wanted to deal with a Cop Mentality first hand. I have a degree in Psychology but no experience with the Abnormal.
I don’t want to talk any more because another Cop has a looser mouth than yours and disclosed what’s up. I was told by a VPD drug squad member that they are actively investigating all the clubs and dispensaries (prioritizing based on community complaints) by sending in undercovers to see if medical diagnosis is required as well as if minors are able to purchase. So it is advised that these protocols be adhered to.
Which brings me back to Jim’s Weeds and no probable cause and a couple of questions that you will never answer because your primary function is damage control and you would not be in your position if you were not a very skilled professional liar and distorter of the truth.
Your primary function is to put a lid on the problem until it goes away. The misuse of the exemptions in the Access to Information Act allows you to declare that there is an investigation in process and then claim any disclosure of information could damage the result. There is no time limit on investigations and given enough time the video showing the three cops beating the shit out the woman in the wheelchair will be forgotten and no answers or explanation are required.
- Did you have a warrant based on these anonymous allegations? I doubt it!
- Did you find anything incriminating during the raid? I doubt it?
- Were any unlicensed or under age customers present? No!
- What did you find that justifiged seizure of the shop’s contents?
- Was there a probable cause for that? I doubt it!
- What evidence did you get from the pot plants you seized?
- Did you return them before they died? I doubt it?
- Quite obviously you never discovered any evidence of a crime or there would have long since been charges:
- Have you returned all the seized products? I doubt it!
- Are you going to try to charge Jim for storage? Probably: he’s got no place to put since you bastards forced him out of business.
