For some time now, we’ve known that Julian Fantino was a lame duck commissioner. Sure he can still talk to the few who would want to listen, or rabble about how he is the commissioner, but we all know he’s on his way out, and nobody is crying the blues about it.
What we’ve not known until today is who would be hand picked by Dalton McGuinty to replace him. Would he find a genuine law and order police officer, or another lap dog to take Julian’s place? Speculation gave way today as McGuinty announced that deputy commissioner Chris Lewis will take the reigns when Julian steps down on August 1st.
I don’t think I’ve ever met Mr. Lewis, but after nearly 4 years of steady involvement in Caledonia, I do know a few things about him.
