    Things must be a bit slow at the Saanich Police Department right now, maybe they can dust off all the evidence they do have, review it all and make a couple arrests.
    Better yet why don’t you put all the evidence together and give it to IHIT. I’m sure they could make arrests within a week.
    I won’t hold my breath with hope since that won’t happen because the SPD need complete control so there aren’t arrests. To bad the politicians won’t stand up for Lindsay like they do for a virus.

    What happened to the call history of victim.
    If Mexicans were there at scene definitely an intimation to victim would have given through call/ msg before their meet up..
    What does the autopsy says about the stabbed wounds..
    How depth the wound is and any guesses what kind of weapon used to perform the conspiracy..
    The witnesses should be re-investigated..

    • Svetlana says:

      Everything should be reinvestigated. Totally unacceptable in Canada. And they should charge on suspicion of murder, and show all evidence that police were hiding.

    • Svetlana says:

      This was no hired hit. They wouldn’t dare show how sick they are to anyone but to themselves. It’s someone who knew Lindsay. This is why no one talked.

      I did see Jason had a strange look in his eyes in the photos of Lindsay’s birthday party. I can only presume that the day was November 2 2007 since she was born on November 2nd. His look was as though he was angry and masking something. I don’t know if it was directed to the person who was taking the picture or not. But if someone knows anything, let Jeff know.

  4. LLC says:

    This is and always has been such a great tragedy. So senseless. How, in this day & age can there be no suspect (s), no arrests? It’s beyond alarming. I’ve followed this case since it happened. I cannot wrap my head around it. Something is very, very wrong here. As always, my heartfelt condolences & continued support for Jeff. #WeWillNotForget #JusticeforLindsay is needed & long, long overdue.

    • anon says:

      Has anyone ever visited Paul Bergshoeffs’ Brentwood Bay B.C. coffee shop before he sold it? Maybe he saw Lindsay and Jason as barriers to doing something he wanted to do. Maybe his original intent was to kill both Lindsay and Jason, but maybe Jason agreed never to open his mouth and Paul let him off the hook. What inspires someone to go into retail foods? an entrepreneur vs a individual interested in the public…

    How many of you have ever heard of the term GASLIGHTING? Its a horrible, insidious technique used by manipulators, abusers, those in power or those wanting to gain power over you. Usually someone who is trying to drive you mad to have their way. When you try to expose the “gaslighters” they jump all over you and use every means at their disposal to squash you. There should really be a law against this with harsh penalties but it is often hard to prove. Over time these “gaslighters” hope they are able to wear you down; break you in any way they can! They covertly try to tell you that you are mentally unstable. They tell others that you are crazy. They try to turn people against you, they threaten, they project untruth on you, they bully, they try to confuse you, they ignore you and they use others who believe them to support their campaign of attempting to break you down mentally and try to make you question your sanity. Its horrible to be on the receiving end of this and it is certainly psychological torment at its most extreme. Its Evil at work!

    This folks is sadly what Saanich police and now the current Mayor of Saanich have been doing to me and others for years along with individuals they can convince to support and believe them. A father mourning the loss of his daughter and hoping for justice. Supporters and a public, a community demanding justice and safety. The really insidious part is they are believed to be the authority, supposedly our friends and protectors, and the honest ones but sadly not in this situation. Saanich police also have the power of local media mostly on their side. In Victoria I have been told more than once by some local media that they cannot attack or criticize Saanich police because they have to live there. Constable Horsley of Saanich police even goes so far as to refer to local media as “our media partners” which is complete corruption in our day and age. Media are supposed to be unbiased and reporting the news. If so, why does the media always tell me they have to check with Saanich police first before reporting anything? Why does media never check with me about what crap Saanich police tell them and report what I say about Saanich police or about what is going on with Lindsay’s unsolved murder and with Saanich police? Why are media not reporting the truth? Saanich police do not tell the truth!

    Saanich police are the ones who have put out false and misleading information about Lindsay’s unsolved murder as we proved by reviewing all news releases quoting Saanich police but yet Saanich police accuse others, the lindsaybuziakmurder site and myself of putting out false and misleading information when in fact we often use media information from Saanich police as our source. Certainly Saanich police and now the current Mayor have mislead and ignore me. They have lied to me and certainly threatened me by their visit to my place of work in Calgary. They use Lindsay, her case, as a tool against me to stop informing everyone the truth. They are supposed to tell the truth! They have told others I am a liar, a drunk, have no friends and am crazy when in fact I do not drink, do not do drugs, lie, take any medication and have participated in 6 years of counselling following Lindsay’s murder. In reality, people tell me of Saanich police officers abusing alcohol and illegal drugs, of lying and bullying. I make it my mandate to be as transparent as I can be and always tell the truth. Why would I lie? I just want arrests and charges in my daughter’s murder after 12 long punishing years. I have nothing to lie about.

    Saanich police even convinced some has-been, “I used to be guy”, falsely claiming to have inside information, to spout their cause when in fact he is simply a self absorbed narcissistic wanna-be looking to attach himself to Lindsay’s murder for monetary gain. How low can they stoop? In reality what he really does is work as a pee collector up island collecting human pee and delivering it to a lab for testing. A pee collector cum cheerleader for Saanich police personally disparaging everything supporters of Justice for Lindsay and I say. How low! This isn’t about you “I Used To Be Guy”…..or me so quit your lowlife posturing for personal gain pee collector. This is about Lindsay’s savage killing and Justice. Keep your nose in the pee instead of my daughter’s unsolved murder. No one wants to hear some nonsense from a pee collecting “I used to be guy”.

    The goal of Saanich police right now and for some time is to use gaslighting in hope they drive me crazy and/or turn everyone against me so I will go away and/or die and they can blunder along unsuccessfully with Lindsay’s case until it solves itself or people just forget about it and they continue to merrily play their police game and look good publicly playing police.

    We/I am holding them accountable and they can’t stand it because they have failed at their sworn duty and can’t face the shame! Lets not let Chief Scott Green and his Saanich police get away with not doing their job and lets certainly not let the conspirators and killers of Lindsay get away with murder also. Saanich police need to stop this horrible conduct with Lindsay’s murder investigation, stop their horrible conduct towards a public desperately trying to help while waiting for arrests and stop their horrible conduct of gaslighting me/us. They need to step aside as over Six Thousand One Hundred concerned members of the public demand them to by a petition everyone should sign if they care about justice for a murdered woman. Saanich police need to apologize, hold their heads in shame and take responsibility for their failure. They need to stand down.

    Justice for Lindsay Buziak.

      I think everyone here is doing a great job. There are-in my opinion no “dead-end” zones in Lindsay’s murder. We need to keep looking closer to the circle of people around her. This is where the key to her murder is.

  6. Jeff Buziak, father says:

    This I received from a friend of Lindsay’s who is upset by the way Saanich police have tried to disguisedly portray Lindsay in the media, which I am offended by, but like everyone have always hoped they would just do their job which they have obviously failed to do:


    I met Lindsay when she was around 14 through high school friends and later when she was with Matt and then Jason Zailo. She was so cute and little and sweet and soft in her way of being a real down to earth kind of girl. Lindsay was very personable and friendly to everyone. I remember the first time she came up to introduce herself to me at Mayfair mall with her little sister Sara. Lindsay wasn’t afraid to meet new friends at all and went after whatever she wanted with all her heart and was the kind of girl that wore her heart on her sleeve, a very lovable and a brave soul. She was very stylish, petite and she stood up for the things she believed in with all her heart and was and is so special to this day to me as a dear friend.

    Lindsay was really inspiring as a friend and person to us all as her friend. Lindsay’s smile would light up any room she was in and her laugh made you want to laugh with her. I really miss that about her. I miss her laugh and her jokes as she was really funny and had a good sense of humor. We would poke fun about our boyfriends when we got chances to talk together, she was always so busy working we both where . It’s really sad how things have been made up about Lindsay in this situation. Mainly so many things have been twisted up. Lindsay has been dumbed down a bit with people saying she was a girl mixed up.

    She wasn’t mixed up with the wrong people she was just polite with good manors and friendly to everyone. Lindsay was a well raised girl. She was polite and kind to everyone who came into contact with her. She was kind yes to friends of mutual friends that had bad reputations here in Victoria. This is a small town and the circles of friends here can mix sometimes. Lindsay was kind to all because she had a non judging heart. She was open to everyone and did not deserve this to happen to her as no one does. How can her other girlfriends allow people to taint her reputation when she was not mixed up with anything or anyone bad if she could help it. Lindsay was good and a great friend to have.

    Lindsay kept busy to herself and was always a relationship kind of girl. She never had time to be that social, to be connected and made into this gang type of girl by knowing some troubled people through other friends or boyfriends. That part really hurts me because people’s level of empathy towards what happened to her goes down thinking, well if she hangs around bad people then these things happen kind of attitude when that’s just not the case at all! It was a rare sighting if you saw Lindsay out on the town as she worked a lot building her new career and a life focused on her success in real estate as far as I knew as her friend.

    From a supporter who sent this to me and also to the Prime Minister and others:

    Hi Mr. Mike Farnsworth and David Eby,

    I have just signed a petition that has over 6 thousand signatures asking for the Lindsay Buziak unsolved murder file to be turned over to an outside agency so that this decade plus heinous unsolved murder can have fresh eyes take a look at it and hopefully at long last solve it.
    The Saanich police department has lost the faith of the people when it comes to solving this case. They clearly can not solve it and yet they refuse to declare it a cold case so that others can have a look at the evidence. In the mean time the people of Saanich are supposed to be ok knowing that the evil people who committed this horrendous crime are still walking amongst us. We are not ok with that knowledge.
    The Saanich Police Dept. are supposed to serve and protect the public, not desperately cling onto a decade plus unsolved murder leaving the perpetrators free to walk amongst us. Why has this case not followed the path of most unsolved murders? Why has this case not been declared a cold case as most unsolved cases are after a few years? Why does this case have the same person heading this unsolved murder after all these years?
    Something is not adding up here and we the public want to see change with regards to this case. This case clearly must be removed from the jurisdiction of the Saanich Police Department if it is ever going to be solved. When can we, the tax payers, expect that?

    • Svetlana says:

      Something’s definitely not adding up. Sounds crooked to me. Are there any decent police officers left in Saanich? Do all police have access to ALL evidence? Another investigative force needs to study this evidence and the people involved in Lindsay’s life. We must put a STOP to this game from Saanich!

    • Rosanne Day says:

      My message to the host of this new show. I sure look forward to the Lindsay Buziak case from a victims point of view. What is still happening to a victim’s family is a crime and needs to be in the public.

  8. Robin says:

    As of this morning the petition for Lindsay has 6070 signatures, that’s a lot of people trying to communicate they have an issue to politicians and police IMO.
    Communication is key but why is it that the SPD choose to up the bully behaviour and communicate less. I’m constantly shocked by the arrogance and lack of empathy that the SPD show toward Lindsay, her family and the media who represents the rest of us. The SPD work for the public and should be communicating to the public, so how is it they feel entitled to disregard the very people who are screaming for some accountability here? It’s just abusive behaviour on the part of the SPD.? It’s basic communication the SPD are incapable of here. Who chooses the bullying antic of “IGNORING”. How could a Police Department be so insensitive to a family who will forever be empty and wounded inside. Where’s the Mayor, the Chief of the SPD? We no longer even know who is the head of Lindsay’s investigation! That’s BAD, real BAD!
    I am disgusted by the behaviour of the SPD, all the more reason Lindsay’s file needs to be removed from the SPD, this investigation is tainted by the behaviour of the SPD. How could they possibly choose to ignore?

    • Just a Canadian Citizen says:

      Good reply Robin. From what I know police departments are paid by taxpayers money. Let it go SPD this is a frozen case. Time for someone to step up and take over. Enough

    • Svetlana says:

      This can’t go on anymore. TIME TO ARREST SZ. I do believe in a spirit world, not the kind that religions teach us..but nevertheless I was shown in my dream who the murderer was.
      But the key thing is that Saanich police have some kind of evidence and theories that must be released to the public, to the family, to the good of society, to humanity.

      Do it now. Because tomorrow never comes.

  9. chammie says:

    Was there video footage of the cell phone being purchased?

    • Svetlana says:

      Apparently they don’t keep them for so long. I question the store clerks. How can they not remember people who bought burner cell phones!!! Clerks remember many faces. What about video footage of all passengers on the ferries! Unless the police already have some information that they are not releasing. I think Saanich police botched everything.

    • Svetlana says:

      I had a dream, maybe sounds weird but I am sure it was related to Lindsay. Dreams can say a lot and the only person who can interpret them is yourself. In my dream I saw, table don’t take, big glass thing no, wood cabinet yes, apartment building- maybe water closeby, shady types around, at the end of dream, one blurry photo and looks like Shirley Zailo.

  10. Jeff Buziak, father says:

    Lindsay’s murder is an international tragedy and I appreciate the support of all the fine, caring women and men from around the world. Basically, we are speaking of a femicide here. The terminating of the life of a wonderful young woman while at work because some depraved individual decided that who Lindsay Buziak was, said or did wasn’t to their liking so they executed her. This is more than a local issue in quiet little Victoria, B.C.
    The world should care and the world should respond because this simply adds to the plight of women if the world doesn’t respond or care. Saanich police unmistakably don’t care or there would have been arrests a long, long time ago. A precedent has already been set because of Sandwich police and their contemptible, dismissive attitude and performance surrounding Lindsay’s savage execution 7.5 kilometers from their police station on February 2, 2008.
    Psychologically, that precedent clearly is its safe to murder a woman in Saanich because police won’t act or get their act together in time to ensure there is swift justice and further Saanich police will do everything in their powers to quash anyone attempting to hold them accountable including using misinformation, psychological torment, threats and legal bullying funded by Saanich taxpayers to defend their less than shiny image. Really, their false image is whats important to them not some chick at work who got bludgeoned to death under their watch.
    Obviously, however, it isn’t safe to be a woman in Saanich, B.C. because there are killers on the loose that have got away with murder and all Saanich police will do is have another review and threaten to sue! Really, really pathetic Chief Constable Scotty Green and Mayor Freddy Haynes. Who the hell are you people? Who is in charge at Saanich. It appears the monkeys run the zoo there!
    How about arrests Saanich police or politely removing yourselves from something you have failed at. Save the taxpayers of Saanich more frivolous spending on lawyers defending your poor reps because of who you have obviously shown yourselves to be? Well over 5,700 people don’t want you on the job anymore and that number is growing. You just can’t fool us anymore like in the past even with your new amateur Greek pr rookie. So very sad when all you had to do was your sworn duty.

    This was sent to me from a friend in the USA:

  12. anon says:

    Keep in mind those peoples names you posted only want to hear complaints from Canadians. Others who live outside Canada receive messages back saying something to the effect of “thanks for your opinion but we correspond with issues and persons that are Canadian”. Of course it’s stated in a much more bucolic and beauracratic way. That doesn’t mean people outside Canada should try, but Canadians should try more. 😊

    • Jeff Buziak, father says:

      You are right.

      • anon says:

        I’m trying to think about Lindsay’s case in this way:
        1) the Saanich police may not know much more than the public does about who murdered Lindsay.
        2) There is a person out there who is better suited to solve this case. Seems like a retired officer from another Canadian tourist town (Vancouver?, Toronto?), on contract/ consulting basis to Saanich, that specializes in domestic abuse and specializes in homicide would fit the bill. That person must have several arrests under their belt. That person should have experience busting through bureaucracy/ busting through red tape and getting past BS.
        I know I may have asked before but since the fake prospect couple said they were coming from Vancouver and purchased a burner phone in Vancouver, how come the Vancouver police are not the lead on the case? Do we think they might do a better job? I personally would like to know what address was given on the burner phone and why the police do not think there is any connection to that building where the address actually was? Or is it just that they never found the connection so they assume there never was one?
        3) What about Paul Bergshoeff? Everyone seems to think he’s left Canada, but then why is it when you google him he’s got a facebook page AND it says that he owns JJ’s Coffee Shop in Brentwood Bay, Victoria. Who are the other owners? Is he the sole owner? He’s seemed to avoid a lot of press. What if Paul had a crush on Lindsay while he was dating Shirley and tried to get at her??- thereby making Shirley jealous enough to kill her? I can’t believe by looking at Paul online there that he was ever a cop or that Shirley would even date him. Appears to me, as a female, that he is a short guy and not that good looking. Was he on the Whistler trip with the Zailos and Lindsay before her murder? Did he have children of his own in the same age range as the Zailos or Lindsay? Has Paul ever been pulled in for a lie detector test in the matter of Lindsay’s murder? Has Chris Horsley ever been asked to take a lie detector test in the matter of Lindsays murder? Is there a petition for that that I can sign?

  13. Robin says:

    Totally agree with this article-just do something to make a change at the SPD

    • Jeff Buziak, father says:

      It is pathetic Robin. They are supposed to be our friends and protectors not our enemies. They are supposed to uphold the law and arrest people who break the law not allow people to get away with murder for twelve years then threaten, intimidate and psychologically torment me and others because I call their lazy asses out. No wonder they are referred to as a type of farm animal. They are arrogant, deceiving, dishonorable people who have lost the meaning of the oath they swore to. They need to be replaced and sternly admonished by a higher authority for their horrendous mishandling of Lindsay’s savage UNSOLVED murder and people’s efforts to help.
      Its 12 years! They have failed miserably. They can spew all the bullshit they want now about phony reviews, they can covertly engage parrot leaches on the internet to support them and call their idiotic engagement a priority which is all crap! Time has proven their incompetence. I don’t have to defend that fact.
      Time is the ultimate teller of truth and the truth is they have nothing after 12 years so they need to be replaced by someone capable of doing the job.
      This is a plain and simple fact proven by time and their horrible performance.

  14. Robin says:

    Everyone is interested in talking about who murdered Lindsay Buziak. Except Saanich police.
    Taken from the Vancouver Sun today

    So the SPD now have a PR person to do the talking now . Why? The head of Lindsay’s file for years , Chris Horsely can’t inform the public, his employers about what he is doing to see that there are arrests for Lindsay’s brutal murder. He can’t keep his story straight. Well how about the new Chief giving an update then. Oh no we need a PR person who has extra training in saying NOTHING. How lame are the SPD. Just move this case FFS, just do what the 5300 people on the petition are asking for. They work for the public and that’s US.

    Markus Anastasiades, public information and communications officer for the Saanich Police Department, says the department has been working with RCMP since the initial crime scene.
    “We are currently moving forward with the recommendations of the most recent review,” Anastasiades said. “The Lindsay Buziak homicide remains an open and active investigation of the Saanich Police, and we remain committed to bringing this file to a successful conclusion.

    Yah-YAH-Yah, sure you do SPD. You’ve had 12 yrs already.

    • Just a Canadian Citizen says:

      The savage murder of Lindsay and this petition must stay in the news. At some point someone will have to remove this case from the Saanich PD. This case is not just cold it is flippin “FROZEN” Enough is enough. Thanks for sharing the articles Robin.

    • Svetlana says:

      What are they waiting for? What are they investigating for 12 years now! Totally UNACCEPTABLE. If they have some people in their radars then why don’t they just arrest on suspicion and let the rest fall into place! Some will certainly fall….

      I pray that this petition does something and that the case gets as much news coverage as possible. Keep writing to news channels as we get results with that. Media is powerful.

  15. Jeff Buziak, father says:

    Here is what the website Gangsters Out Blog has to say about British Columbia, The Attorney General David Eby and the head of Lindsay’s unsolved murder file, Saanich police constable Chris “Al Capone” Horsley:

    • Jeff Buziak, father says:

      I had become suspect of Saanich police detective Chris Horsley certainly after hearing he was a silent partner in the Upstairs Cabaret and Darcy’s Pub at the time of Lindsay’s murder. Further he was praised by the cop owner of LIDA Homes as being the millionaire investor enabling the company to start and flourish. Of course he owns his trucking company and is known as good time party guy (I say party guy lightly from what the reality is). This isn’t a dedicated, focused police officer and detective but this is how Saanich police operate. Anything goes.

      Saanich police protect themselves by officers going to work for The Office of The Police Complaint Commission after retirement as did the 3 heads of Lindsay’s file preceding Cocaine Horsley (Ross Poulton, Craig Samson, Rob “Bad Memory” McColl) along with Shirley Zailo’s former boyfriend retired Saanich cop Barry MacLachlan. So Minister Farnworth thank you for your recommendation that if we are disgruntled we can approach the OPCC. Nice try my friend! Open your eyes and see what is going on in your portfolio. This is why we are coming directly to you!! Watch our Petition grow and get ready for us to appear on your doorstep with it. Everyone please sign the petition:

      Back to El Patron. When Chris Horsley came to visit me in Calgary and threatened me while also commanding the other person with him not to identify himself, who I later found out was Trevor Dyck, head of Standards and Practices at Saanich Police (HAHaHaHa are you kidding me), I began to see El Patron Horsley was more than just a Saanich police officer with interests on the side. My wisdom as an elder told me by his demeanor, history, reality and actions that he is up to a way more outside police work than in and he is a cop on the side for convenience and to complement his other more serious activities outside police work. In Calgary in front of me El Patron was flexing his muscle and his ego was present in a big way. The real Chris “El Patron” Horsley showed his true character for a moment in time, a slip and a mistake in judgement due to ego. Oops! BUT, Saanich police superiors allow him to remain head of Lindsay’s unsolved murder! What the Hell is going on at Saanich police?

      Recently I have also found out El Patron Horsley was involved with Len Barrie of Bear Mountain fame in real estate dealings and other ???? ventures. He hides as a silent partner with the money. More seriously, he was also silent partner in Sauce Restaurant where Lindsay met with Jason Zailo for a meal, her last, before she was savagely executed at a house owned by a friend of Shirley Zailo. This is very serious stuff here for a police officer to not only be investigating, but be the head of the file and personally have his nose right in the middle of the whole mess called Lindsay Buziak’s Unsolved Murder. Do you sense anything out of place here yet? A conflict? Do you smell things are rotten?

      Minister Farnworth, are you seeing anything here or are you choosing to turn a blind eye to this mess called Saanich Police & Lindsay Buziak’s (UNSOLVED) Murder and continue to allow the once Beautiful British Columbia to deteriorate further into the hands of criminals like is happening right under your nose while you make excuses for not taking action? C’mon Minister Farnworth you have a chance to make a difference here and make a mark in BC’s history by doing something meaningful as opposed to ducking and hiding, slippin and slidin, smoke and mirrors politician talk.
      Step up. Be responsible. Take action. Remove Saanich play police from this investigation, please.

      Jeff Buziak, father

      • Just A Canadian Citizen says:

        Wow Jeff. Time for this case to become a “cold case” so someone not involved in the BC corruption can conduct an unbiased review. Do the Saanich PD have any evidence? Did they ever keep anything ever? If not that would be a serious issue to be looked into. Onward……………

      • Svetlana says:

        CTV news on Feb 20 says this. Something not right with this! RCMP helped only 2 times? Yet Saanich Police seem to be so proud that it is a joint investigation. I see nothing joint about it.

        Saanich police provided a statement to CTV News saying the department’s joint investigation with the RCMP “continues to this day.”
        “In fact, the RCMP assisted the Saanich police by conducting comprehensive reviews of the Saanich police investigation in 2008 and again in 2019, where RCMP subject-matter experts worked at the Saanich Police Department,” the statements said.
        “We are currently moving forward with the recommendations of the most recent review. The Lindsay Buziak homicide remains an open and active investigation of the Saanich police, and we remain committed to bringing this file to a successful conclusion.”

        • Jeff Buziak, father says:

          I wonder how much time Saanich police think they need? 100 years? They are so full of it. Former Chief Bob Downie said to me in the presence of El Patron Horsley that, “he wasn’t going to have officers sitting around with their feet up on their desks waiting for a confession”.
          He was The head of Saanich police, The Chief calling it like it was under El Patron Horsley’s leadership and still head of the file under Chief Scott Green. (I will polygraph to this being true)
          Now does this sound like an, “open and active investigation of the Saanich police, and we remain committed to bringing this file to a successful conclusion.” HaHaHaHa. They don’t fool me at Saanich play police.

      • Donald Kimble says:

        Silent partner at Sauce is the best lead to go on.This needs to be exposed to the max. Especially considering the missing video, the fudged up timelines and all things nonsensical leading up to the “showing” along with Jason’s fabrications.

        For retiring Saanich police chief, a bittersweet finish

        Saanich Police Chief Mike Chadwick, who serves his last day on the job today, says one of his biggest regrets is that the slaying of Lindsay Buziak remains unsolved.

        “There’s not a day that goes by I don’t think about the Buziak homicide,” Chadwick told reporters earlier this week. “And it is a regret that that one is unsolved, because we have so very few unsolved homicides in our jurisdiction. … To have that one outstanding, it’s definitely something I would have liked to see resolved before my retirement.”

        Hired by Saanich police in June 1975 at age 20, Chadwick today caps 39 years of policing with the force. He has been chief since Aug. 1, 2009.

        Chadwick, 59, said some of his most fulfilling work was his time as a road sergeant, when he got to work the front line and saw rookie cops grow in maturity and experience.

        One file he said he’ll never forget was his investigative role helping to solve the murder of Marguerite Telesford, who went missing Jan. 18, 1987, while jogging in Saanich. Scott Ian MacKay was convicted because of a key piece of evidence — a blue pompom that was discovered wedged underneath his pickup truck.

        “As a result of that, her parents had closure on the disappearance of their daughter,” Chadwick said. “That was a long haul, but at the end of it, there was a real sense of satisfaction.”

        The Saanich department was criticized for not joining the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit when the homicide investigation team was formed in 2007. Chadwick reversed that decision and the department joined the unit in 2012.

        Chadwick has remained staunchly against the creation of a single police force in Greater Victoria, saying he’s an “integrationist” who supports individual departments working together through specialized integrated units.

        When he announced his retirement late last year, Chadwick told the Times Colonist he didn’t think the province should mandate participation in certain units. The Regional Crime Unit, set up in 2008 to target the region’s most prolific offenders, has repeatedly lost support from police departments citing budget constraints.

        Saanich has always put a focus on community policing, with a “no call too small” mantra, which Chadwick supported, saying he loved talking with residents to find out what’s important to them.

        The Saanich force has a long history of promoting within the ranks, unlike Victoria, which tends to hire from outside police departments. Deputy chief Bob Downie will step in as Saanich’s top cop effective Feb. 1 and Insp. Scott Green is being promoted to deputy chief.

        Chadwick said his leadership style has always been to not “hold the reins too tight” because he has trust in the great people who work for the department.
        He’s retiring now, he said, because he promised his wife he would slow down before his 60th birthday.

        Chadwick said his fourth grandchild is on the way and he and his wife expect to do some travelling.

    I’m not saying the same thing is going on in Saanich BUT it sure could be AND we know there are some cops living beyond their means in Saanich. Not naming anyone but there could be a dark horse that lacks integrity like this DEA agent.

    AND what about this?

    Dix promises review of BC Rail sale-April, 2013

    VANCOUVER – A New Democrat government would not hold a referendum on the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion but they would conduct a review of the BC Rail sale and the criminal charges that resulted.

    Dix says there are still unanswered questions about the BC Rail sale itself and the trial of two former Liberal government aides whose legal fees were paid by government after a guilty plea.

    No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.”

      I’m now thinking that the laws should be changed in every port city because of the tourists and the criminals who seek after quick cash in those areas at any cost. The penalty for any crime should be 2x’s that of a non port city. I would like to find out Saanich’s policy on police to person ratio – not just residents but accounting for average tourist influx. That would be good information to have as a way to force the issue about changing Lindsays case to another task force outside of the area. I can only guess that the day to day Saanich police coverage is fractional, and that tourist numbers are low-balled because of under the table cash tourism. City managers don’t want to spend the necessary cash just to maintain a level of quality.

    I just can’t stand people who bullshit me. People like Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Mike Farnworth and his pal Attorney General David Eby who have both bullshitted all of us who write into them and recently heard the Minister of Public Safety Farnworth on the news telling us he can’t do anything about the police doing nothing but playing with Lindsay Buziak’s savage murder. Well, read this legal quote about these two bullshitters claiming, “I can’t personally do anything about the police”.

    In BC, police powers derive from the Police Act 1996 (the “Act”). As a whole, policing falls within the responsibilities of the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General, but the area of “Independent Investigations Office” falls within the responsibilities of the Attorney General.

    Throughout the Act “Minister” is generally referred to, but Ministry of Attorney General is specifically referred to as such (in Part 7.1 sections ss. 38.01-38.13) when referring to what falls within whose responsibility. The Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General is responsible for policing and therefore the “minister” in the Act.

    Very simplified, the Minister is responsible for the governance and function of the police structure, and ultimately responsible for all aspects of ensuring adequate and effective levels of policing and law enforcement (the Act gives the Minister discretion to do whatever is necessary to ensure this). The Attorney General is responsible for making sure that justice is served through the independent investigation office.

    So you two are in charge and can do what is necessary. Do something then bullshitters. A wonderful young woman was murdered 12 years ago while at work and you two bozos can do something about it. DO IT and quit bullshitting the citizens you represent in British Columbia. I’ve had enough of the lies from everyone. How about do your jobs and enforce the law and show there is justice in your messed up province that used to be Beautiful British Columbia.

    Thank you

    • Jeff Buziak, father says:

      I apologize for my bluntness to all of you who are sensitive to that. Please let me explain. My sweet daughter was savagely murdered 12 years ago while working in Saanich, BC and the Saanich police force has fiddled (blundered and stumbled) with the investigation accomplishing nothing except publicly clearing a family who should be suspects not cleared. How can you clear anyone until there are arrests, charges and a trial?

      Over this time there have been three Mayors, 4 police chiefs and 4 heads of Lindsay’s murder and NOTHING Zero. They all failed but yet the brilliant politicians allow this less than mediocre circus of monkeys continue to fiddle with my child’s unsolved murder producing nothing but stupid statements veiled to sound important, excuses, explanations, blaming and even threatening me to stop everything I do.

      Enough folks. Please help me to bring this all this to a conclusion and not now allow the politicians in charge to give us more of the same crap we have been hearing for the last twelve year from Saanich police. They have brilliant answers for everything but can’t figure out how to arrest and charge!

      Arrest, charges and trials are what needs to happen and Saanich police need to be replaced because their b.s. is no longer tolerable and they are not capable period. They’ve proved that over twelve years. Enough.

      Thank you

    • see closely says:

      I agree with you wholeheartedly.AG is the one with the power to do something.I don’t believe that SPD did report to the AG as Jeff said and was told by the AG office. Instead they are hiding behind”it is an active file.”Why?

      • Jeff Buziak, father says:

        If Saanich classifies Lindsay’s murder as a cold case then the family and the media have access to the file. Saanich told me it was a cold case year two so I demanded the file. They had a meeting and the same day said they changed their mind and it was active and have said it’s active ever since for that reason and that reason only! That was Rob McColl now retired who went on to work at the Office of the Police Complaint Commission like his three predecessors from Saanich police did. Corrupt.

    • Anon says:

      Right now is the time to get assistance from victim services when it’s an open police file. They can get the resources necessary to get the active case moving once if he comes in active or closed as a Cold Case file it’s more difficult to get victim services to help

      • Jeff Buziak, father says:

        Let’s not get sidetracked. What we need is Minister of Safety Mike Farnworth to replace Saanich police with an agency that is capable of accomplishing the job of arresting and charging people responsible. Minister Farnworth has that ability and he needs to fire their asses and put an end to this nightmare and make the province safe again. Right now it’s okay to kill women in British Columbia because there are no consequences!

        • anon says:

          You can do both. If you register yourself at victim services they will help you get the case file out from the hands of the same police department that threatened you.
          I also agree w/ comments and speculation on this website that the couple that contacted Lindsay could have been 2 men w/ one being dressed like a woman. Likewise the 6ft tall “man” that was seen could have been a woman dressed as a man. It could also have been 2 women with one dressed as a man.. ..Did Lindsay have a couple in her circle that was a 6ft tall woman and a 5’5″ man? Or a 6ft tall man w/ a 5’5″ male friend? Again I wonder why the “eye whitness” thought the couple was “well dressed”. …

      • Robin says:

        Good idea Anon

        • Veritas Fabula says:

          Maybe a good “idea” but total nonsense. Victim Services is run by volunteers and has ZERO input in police matters. You would have a better chance of asking the clerk at 7-11. Victim Services do great work, but have no authority on policing.

  18. Jeff Buziak, father says:

    From a supporter:

    Tony Floyd: I hate Victoria so much. They could have closed this case a decade ago but they prefer to play ball with the criminals (and let the money exchange hands) instead of justice. This case was about sending a message that you don’t mess with drug dealers. When the police could have sent a message to the gangs by prosecuting them they cooperate with them (and take their money) instead.
