Cop denies stalking woman in child custody battle with wealthy ex-boyfriend


Bradford McNish (L), Bryan Morton (C), and Anthony Braile
One of three Calgary police officers facing criminal charges denied ever conducting covert surveillance of a woman who says she was a victim of harassment. Bryan Morton, currently suspended from the CPS, said he was never paid to do background searches. But Morton, who faces charges of criminal harassment, bribery, breach of trust by a public official and unlawfully using a police computer system, acknowledged working for former officer Steve Walton.

Morton said most of the $1,000-a-day work he did for Walton involved security detail for an oil company and its CEO. Morton admitted he received multiple cheques from the account of Walton and Walton’s wife, Heather. Payments in 2013 and 2014 totaled $81,520.

Morton did admit going to Edmonton to do surveillance on the woman. Morton admitted doing police data bank checks on the Canadian Police Information Centre for Walton and Braile.
