Keeping a Lowe profile
Stan Lowe finally made his public debut
as police complaint commissioner.
But he neednt have put if off
if this is the kind of media coverage he gets.
Stan Lowes Sept. 23 speech to a small group in Delta was probably the first time hes addressed the public or the media since being appointed police complaint commissioner last December. That seems odd, because in his previous job with B.C.s Criminal Justice Branch, Lowe regularly spoke to the media. In his new job, however, hes been leaving media duties to his deputy police complaint commissioner, former RCMP officer Bruce M. Brown.
But if Lowe had any worries, they seem unfounded. The modest media coverage he received, from CKNW and the Delta Optimist, ignored public concern about the police complaint process as well as Lowes infamous Dziekanski decision.

Two and a half weeks later the paper finally printed my letter, which you can read here.
