RCMP investigate two senior legislative staff
Two senior staff members at the B.C. Legislature have been suspended while the RCMP conduct an investigation.
Clerk of the House, Craig James and Sergeant-at-Arms, Gary Lenz were escorted out of the building after question period yesterday (Tues).
B.C. Solicitor General Mike Farnworth says the men were suspended after a unanimous vote in the legislature.
The nature of the investigation has not been released.
The sergeant-at-arms ensures the house and its members are protected during sessions, while the legislative clerk helps direct and administer the legislative assembly.
