PAC investigation started in November


A source familiar with the Glenwood Parental Advisory Committee said the investigation into the group’s finances goes back to November.

Glenwood parents are scheduled to meet Thursday evening to hear more from their PAC about the RCMP investigation and the finances.

The Langley Advance reported earlier this week that both the Mounties and the Canada Revenue Agency are looking into the PAC’s financial records [RCMP eyes Glenwood PAC, Feb. 25]. 

PAC president Kara Novakowski said financial records going back several years are missing or lost.

A source familiar with the PAC said that the situation began when requests for copies of the financial statements began earlier this school year. When the records were not forthcoming, there were more requests made, and still the documents were not produced.

In November, said the source, a District PAC member was appointed to head up an internal audit.

Enough information was uncovered that the PAC went to the RCMP. The Canada Revenue Agency has also been contacted, as has the B.C. Gaming Policy and Enforcement branch, which deals with grants of money collected from lotteries and gambling.

No one familiar with the case has been able to say on the record whether or not money is missing from PAC accounts.

Thursday night’s meeting will be a general meeting of the PAC membership, and will start at 7 p.m. at the school.

The Glenwood PAC, unlike most Langley PACs, is a registered charity.

The Langley School District, which does not organize or control the independent PACs, said it is cooperating with the investigations any way it can.
