Incumbent Calgary city council candidate Sean Chu is facing backlash from a CBC News story that focuses on an internal misconduct investigation that was done when Chu was a Calgary Police Service officer in 1997.
The CBC story alleges he had inappropriate contact with a minor.
Chu released a statement in response to the story: “As many of you will have heard, there are serious allegations being made publicly against me based on a CBC News story that was released on Friday. These allegations misrepresent the truth of the matter and come at a time meant to hurt me the most in this campaign.”
Global News has been unable to verify the findings of the internal misconduct review.
We reached out to police for a response but have not heard back.
