Yesterday was the second day in a row Solicitor General Kash Heed pled ignorance in the legislature in a response to a question from the opposition. On Wednesday, he wasn't able to confirm the RCMP's integrated illegal gaming enforcement team had been shutdown - something that happened in April and was reported on by Public Eye. Nor, on Thursday, had he heard of the RCMP looking into a Cowichan sweater protest - even though that issue has been canvassed in the press and would have been part of his media clippings. Asked about the matter, the solicitor general said, "I wouldn't want to delve into some minute operational side of this. And I leave that up the experts in the integrated security unit for them to do it. I'm operating at the higher policy level."
