There has been a major change, for the time being, at the Edmonton Police Association.
As of Wednesday Bob Walsh has taken over as interim president replacing the suspended Maurice Brodeur.
“He has been removed, as per our bylaws,” Walsh explained. “They state we can remove an individual executive from the board while there’s an investigation going on in regard to some infractions in the bylaws.”
Walsh said Brodeur was relieved as president after the Association received numerous complaints. “There are two separate infractions in the allegations against him right now. One, generally, is that he is to report to the executive of the Association on issues. The other is in regard to willfully engaging in conduct that’s detrimental to the reputation of the association or its members.”
Brodeur now has 30 days to respond to the complaints, and to provide his version of what the allegations entail.
