Toronto Police Services Board Chairman Alok Mukherjee under fire for Facebook post

Mayor John Tory says Toronto Police Services Board chairman Alok Mukherjee committed an “error in judgement” with a Facebook posting that sparked the Toronto Police Association’s call for his resignation. TPA President Mike McCormack called for Mukherjee to quit on Friday in the wake of a Facebook post he shared Thursday that compared the numbers of Americans killed by ISIS, Ebola and police officers. Mukherjee didn’t resign and instead issued a statement saying he “regrets the reaction” the posting caused. Tory — a new member of the police board — said he didn’t think Mukherjee’s response to the outcry was adequate.
