June 18, 2018: Din­ner, Toronto Po­lice Chief In­vi­ta­tional golf tour­na­ment

The Globe and Mail (BC Edition) - - NEWS -

Fresh off his vic­tory in On­tario’s 43rd gen­eral elec­tion, Mr. Ford ar­rived at the Mark­land Wood Golf Club for the tail end of the an­nual Toronto Po­lice Chief In­vi­ta­tional golf tour­na­ment. When he ar­rived, he grav­i­tated to­ward a fa­mil­iar face.

A pho­to­graph from the event shows Mr. Ford seated for din­ner be­tween two po­lice of­fi­cers: Supt. Tav­erner to his left and then Staff Su­per­in­ten­dent Di Tom­maso to his right. At the time, Supt. Tav­erner was the su­per­in­ten­dent for three west-end Toronto po­lice di­vi­sions and Mr. Di Tom­maso was his boss.

Wanita Kelava, the tour­na­ment di­rec­tor, said she didn’t know who in­vited the Premier to the event. “It was a last-minute thing,” she said. Seats were not as­signed, and par­tic­i­pants were wel­come to sit wher­ever they wanted.

One day after The Globe made a num­ber of in­quiries with Supt. Tav­erner and oth­ers about the din­ner, all pho­tos of Supt. Tav­erner were re­moved from the golf tour­na­ment’s web­site.
