Is deputy police chief Chris McNeil's suspension related to fire department investigation? 

The Shebib report into alleged fire department racism becomes relevant.

Halifax's deputy chief of police, Chris McNeil, has been suspended pending an investigation of possible perjury on McNeil's part, according to the CBC.

Besides being second-in-command at the HPD, McNeil is a lawyer, still in good standing as a "Non Practising Member" with the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society. This makes the perjury investigation all the more interesting---obviously a lawyer knows the gravity of willfully committing perjury.

Of course, McNeil has not been charged with perjury, much less convicted of it. There's merely a set of circumstances that evidently warranted a closer look by authorities.

So what's going on here?
