Rob Wipond and the OIPC investigation of police chiefs, Ray Rogers and the Campaign to Stop Killer Coke for WOC Dec 19 2013

Rob Wipond is an award winning journalist who writes regularly for Focus Magazine.  While investigating the Vic PD’s licence plate surveillance program, he discovered two organizations of BC Police Chiefs that appear to be functioning as both private, and public entities.  Neither has a web presence, or clear mission statement, they appear to accept money both privately and from the public purse, though there seems little accountability to the public they claim to serve.  Rob tells us how he happened to find these organizations, what’s he’s been able to discern about them so far, and how all this led to the launch of an investigation by the BC Office of the Information and Privacy Commission (OIPC) into both the BC Association of Chiefs of Police (BCACP) and the BC Association of Municipal Chiefs of Police (BCAMCP).  Then, Eric Nordal from Social Coast with an update on local activist events and campaigns.  Finally, Ray Rogers from the Campaign to Stop Killer Coke shares some of the history of the Coca Cola Corporation, their connection to the importation of coca leaves, and alleged involvement in death squad murders of union leaders and environmental degradation internationally.
