WINNIPEG — Red River College has called in Winnipeg police to investigate allegations the former president took marble from a campus project to have installed in her own home.
Allegations came to light in October that Forsyth also took marble from the Union Bank Tower project and installed it in the kitchen of her Wellington Crescent home.
“As of yesterday, the board made the decision to engage Winnipeg police to undertake a review of the allegations,” said Lloyd Schreyer, chair of the Red River College Board of Governors.
“The board looked into this to the best of its ability but determined we do not possess the necessary legal tools to adequately conclude the investigation. Once the police review is complete, appropriate action will be taken.”
Earlier Wednesday, the Manitoba government released a review of the college’s financial and human resources practices. A total of 45 recommendations were made, which the college plans to implement by June 30.
