Langley RCMP eyes Glenwood Elementary PAC

The Langley RCMP and Canada Revenue are looking into financial issues of an elementary parental advisory committee.

Cpl. Holly Marks confirmed that the RCMP have started an investigation into the finances of the Glenwood PAC.

She could not say more about the investigation.

Kara Novakowski, the current PAC president, said she was also unable to comment on much of the investigation, but said a letter was going home to parents Thursday.

The PAC has lost its financial records going back several years, she said. The letter to parents will be asking for help finding the documents.

“We have definitely tightened up our procedures,” Novakowski said.

If anyone, including parents of children who have graduated from Glenwood in recent years, knows where the PAC’s records have gone, they are asked to contact the Langley RCMP or the PAC through Glenwood Elementary, Novakowski said.

The Langley School District has also been aware of the investigation, said Ken Hoff, the district spokesperson.

“We’re of course cooperating in any way we can,” Hoff said.

The district doesn’t organize or control the PACs, which are independent non-profits.

“Generally, we allow them to operate independently,” Hoff said.

He said he was not aware of other incidents involving PAC finances in recent years.
