December 2, 2013
STATEMENT BY MAYOR CECIL
I have exercised my
authority, under emergency management, as it relates to the safety and security
of the citizens of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.
Today I have informed the
Attorney General’s office of my order to the Chief of the Cape Breton Regional
Police Service, Peter McIsaac, to request the RCMP, under their mandate to the
province as the provincial police service, to be prepared to provide emergency
police services for the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.
The CBRM has been advised
that specialized services have been withdrawn by members of the NSGEU
bargaining unit #1995. This action is in response to arguments surrounding a
recent case of a police officer charged and convicted of Breach of Trust and
Obstruction of Justice.
BACKGROUND: NSGEU Local 1995 has
informed the Cape Breton Regional Municipality they are withdrawing their
participation in four Police special units: Emergency Response Team (13
members), Public Safety Unit (23 members), Training unit (7 members) and Dive
Team and Marine unit (5 members). Total: 48.
