PAC cash missing

RCMP investigating money missing from Parent Advisory Committee funds

Surrey RCMP have confirmed it is investigating allegations that money has gone missing from a Surrey Parent Advisory Committee (PAC).

The PAC for École KB Woodward, at 13130 106 Ave., sent a letter to parents this week expressing “very sad and frustrating news” that the PAC bank account was empty.

PACs raise money to pay for playgrounds, computers and other items not funded adequately by the provincial government.

After learning of the missing money, the committee gathered bank account records and gave them to Surrey RCMP.

Mounties confirm they are investigating, but say it’s early, and the claims are only allegations at this point. The letter to parents dated Sept. 27 does not say how much money was supposed to be in the account.

“We are all devastated to hear the news,” the letter to parents states. “We hope the police investigation will result in a better understanding of what has occurred and perhaps even provide the possibility of recovering some or all of the missing funds.”

The investigation continues.
