Ottawa man who discovered police officer’s comments talks about Chief’s response

Man who outed Ottawa police officer’s racist comments speaks out about chief’s response.

APTN National News
Earlier this week, Veldon Coburn ignited a firestorm in Ottawa when he outed a senior police officer for making racist comments.

The comments were linked to the death of Inuit artist Annie Pootoogook.

The officer made a number of disparaging comments about Indigenous people including:

“It’s not a murder case….it’s could be a suicide, accidental, she got drunk and fell in the river and drowned who knows…..typically many Aboriginals have very short lifespans, talent or not.

“Because much of the aboriginal population in Canada is just satisfied being alcohol or drug abusers, living in poor conditions etc.” They have to have the will to change, it’s not society’s fault.”

According to Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau, the officer is still working. ‘

Coburn took his concerns to the chief of police.

  1. straight talk
    He needs to take a look at himself and wonder is he speaking for the rest of his partners in the force. He should check weather he is a good role model for children. Can he go into a school and talk to children about his role as a protector of society. I think not and offer u a chance to resign before u are found out about your other attitude eh
