Officers who illegally conducted surveillence on her in 2017 abused their power as uniformed officers and have been handed inappropriately light punishments

Alberta Environment Minister Shannon Phillips speaks with the media during a news conference in Ottawa on Oct. 24, 2018.The police officers who surreptitiously photographed and conducted surveillance on a former provincial cabinet minister meeting with Albertans should be fired, according to the politician who was the target of the rogue operation in Lethbridge.

“This is an egregious and serious matter and should have been dealt with in that way,” Ms. Phillips said in an interview. “The sanction that is commensurate with the seriousness is termination.” A year later, then-chief Davis sent her lawyer a letter that said Sgt. Carrier and Constable Woronuk acted in a way that could discredit the police department, according to the report obtained by The Globe and Mail. Constable Woronuk sent information gathered from his rogue operation, as well as pictures, to a conservative operative in hopes the Ethics Commissioner would investigate Ms. Phillips, the letter revealed.

The officers should be fired!! Absolutely!

But one must acknowledge that you never really know what an NDP cabinet minister is actually up to.

Welcome to regime, folks!

Politics aside, I agree. This is chilling regardless of who you are (unless you’re a threat to safety then they should have you in cuffs.)!

agreed....trust is the most important part of policing and there is none there for these culprits

She is right, unlawful surveillance by police officers.

They haven't been already? Fire them.

This is despicable behavior from these police officers and from the people who investigated this matter. This should have an immediate termination.
