The former Montreal police chief is back in the SPVM, after completing a loan of service contract in Fermont, on the North Shore. He was suspended in 2017, after the filing of a report that severely criticized the management of the SPVM.
In the documents filed in court, his lawyer speaks of a bogus warrant, without decision-making or administrative power, and with the strict directive not to speak to other police officers in his department.
