Hamilton's police chief says ombudsman misinforming public

Hamilton’s chief of police Glenn De Caire calls Ontario ombudsman Andre Marin’s report on the Special Investigation Unit ‘*Oversight Undermined’ *a “dramatic over simplification of complex issues” stating those who have not “read Overnight Undermined are uninformed, and those that have read it are misinformed.”

The chief’s statements are contained in a five page letter sent to the Attorney General of Ontario expressing De Caire’s disagreement with Marin’s report stating the Hamilton Police Service has been “failing to co-operate” with and “ignoring” the SIU.

De Caire proceeds to explain the police service’s viewpoint on cases cited by the ombudsman.

The letter is worth reading.
