ex-Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum

Former mayor of Surrey Doug McCallum returned his city provided vehicle without bothering to repair his collision damage. A final FU to Surrey taxpayers. McCallum drove the city-owned $47k Buick Envision before losing Saturday’s election. He also had a $15k vehicle allowance. Running under the slogan “Doug Gets it Done,” McCallum faces a looming trial for public mischief with the City picking up his legal bills, even though he was on personal business buying groceries.
McCallum claims he was “verbally assaulted”. McCallum made a police complaint and a claim with ICBC for his injuries. Doug McCallum is 78 years old. The mayor of Surrey, B.C., has been charged with public mischief. The B.C. Prosecution Service announced the single criminal count against Doug McCallum. McCallum claimed he had been struck by a car driven by a woman with the group "Keep the RCMP in Surrey" in the parking lot of a Save-On-Foods store on Sept 4. He claimed he was ‘assaulted and run over’ at the pro-RCMP event. Video apparently says he's lying. The scandal plagued Surrey Police is his pet project. He has attacked "Keep the RCMP in Surrey" repeatedly, even banning the group from civic meetings with a court order.
