Revelations convicted child sex offender James Conway is living in a Mission home, which is owned by an employee of the company contracted to house him, are raising concerns over a possible conflict of interest.
Global News reports the property was bought last month by an employee of WJS Canada, who then leased it back to the company.
That has Mission Mayor Randy Hawes furious.
“What you have is an insider, who sees an investment opportunity, and seizes it. And I can tell you, if it were working with the District of Mission, somebody might be out of a job.”
Community Living B.C., which subcontracts to WJS, tells Global it is working with the company to ensure proper guidelines were followed.
CKNW has not been able to reach WJS Canada for comment.
