The B.C. Civil Liberties Association is demanding the province release the findings of an audit into RCMP services, but the solicitor general says releasing the information could jeopardize the ongoing talks over a new contract for provincial policing.

Rich Coleman said yesterday the audit will eventually be released, but not until negotiations are over.

“It’s in draft form, so it’s not completed yet,” Coleman said.

“Since we’re the lead negotiators for the contract with the other provinces, and it’s not in a final form, it hasn’t been released yet. When it’s in final form and it won’t compromise any of the negotiations, we’ll release it.”
