The latest incident involves a suicide jumper, each side accusing that the other was at fault for possibly not preventing the death. Kaspar, the police complaints commissioner, has decided to pursue fire & rescue's complaint regarding the grow-op shooting. Da Vinci warns Kaspar, being part of the RCMP which has in the past had strained relations with the Vancouver Police Department, that the investigation should be impartial. Welles is satisfied that the complaint is moving forward and he will accept whatever the outcome, whereas Jacobs is pissed off that it is proceeding at all. Jacobs and Klotchko advise their members not to cooperate with Kaspar, Ferris and Arkin who agree. Chick may be a tougher one for them to convince. With other business, both Da Vinci and Jacobs try to muscle in on the Prime Minister's upcoming visit to Vancouver. This task seems difficult, especially for the mayor, who wants the PM to tour the Red Light District. Jacobs does whatever he can to kibosh the mayor's plans, but the mayor does manage to get his wish, in part because the PM wants to recruit Da Vinci to run for his party either federally or for the provincial premiership. The tour, however, does not go as smoothly as Da Vinci would have hoped. With the Hastings Racecourse, the slot machine vote does not pass due to some unexpected councilor votes. The vote ends up being somewhat immaterial as Manning, the day previous, sold the racecourse to Roger Woo, who expects some concessions from the mayor to keep the track operating, namely three casino licenses. But Sandra Ferlinger, the councilor who switched her vote against, explains to Da Vinci that a better option is to declare the racecourse a heritage site, in which case it would revert back to the city for operation. Da Vinci learns through other sources that Manning's sale of the track to Woo was a grand scheme between the two to divert track business to another site owned by Woo in the suburbs. With the pedophile case, Leary receives a first hand account from a young male prostitute, Andrew, who was taken to the Century Club two weeks previous. Jacobs wants to proceed with charges against Dubreau, however Leary wants to wait to uncover more evidence as the ring seems to be larger than just Dubreau. The latest possible group involved in the ring is the BC judicial society. With the Stanley Park gay bashing, Katie tries to plea bargain - information of who did the killing for a guarantee of any prosecution against her. And Friedland suspects that Zack may be the mole at the squat. Written by Huggo See less
