Keating school PAC theft investigation continues

Second business steps in to help school parents’ group recover.

CENTRAL SAANICH — The investigation into the missing $40,000 from the Keating Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is still ongoing, according to Central Saanich Police Chief Les Sylven.

The Peninsula Co-op came forward with a donation of $30,000 towards the building of a new playground. As well, $40,000 worth of design material and installation work was donated by Garden City Tree and Landscape. Their donation came days after Co-op made their announcement.

“They both quite happily have indicated that they would work together and in concert to create a combined play structure and nature scape,” said Assistant Superintendent, Scott Stinson.

The PAC is working on creating safeguards. Stinson said amendments to their bylaws and constitution will be some of them.

“I know that they’re working in collaboration with our district PAC as well as the BC PAC, which is the provincial organization, to ensure that they do adjust their bylaws and constitution.”
