My son, Brendan George, was arrested this morning on a drug related charge.

It is not appropriate for me to comment on the details of the case, other than to say my whole family and I love Brendan dearly.

I ask the media to respect our family’s privacy until the matter is resolved.

I now have further understanding of what families go through during this time.

I also want to in force that as a father and a community leader I have always and will continue to oppose illegal drugs.
