I am incensed at the police raid on the home of Mission council critic Ron Taylor. I also feel a chill at the prospect of such a police visit because I, too, am openly critical of my vindictive village council.
Mr. Taylor is doing sterling service in questioning his local council on some dubious policies and practices. To have the police raid his home and seize his computer smacks of a police state.

A former Mission district councillor -a leading critic of the city’s controversial marijuana growing operation inspection process -had three computers seized Monday after RCMP officers raided his home in connection with a breach-oftrust investigation.
“I regard this as political intimidation by the district,” said Ron Taylor, who served on Mission council for 12 years until he retired from office in 2005.
Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks said the seizures were part of an investigation by Mission RCMP into an alleged breach of trust and breach of the Community Charter.
But the RCMP would not elaborate on the nature of the allegations, which concern a suspected leak from Mission council to Taylor.
