On Wednesday, March 5, 2014, Chief William Blair wrote to Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Chris Lewis:
Dear Commissioner Lewis,
As discussed in our recent phone call, I am writing to make a formal request that the Ontario Provincial Police assume an oversight role with respect to Project Brazen 2. As you are aware, Project Brazen 2 arose from the Toronto Police Service’s year-long Project Traveller, focusing on organized crime, violence, guns and drugs.
I am taking this step to avoid the distractions that have assumed such recent prominence. The only public interest here is the continued investigation, without fear or favour, into evidence of possible criminality.
William Blair, C.O.M.
Chief of Police
