Threat suspect's seedy past

The man who allegedly made an online threat against Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran has a long criminal history, including assault and uttering threats.

Bruce Edward Taylor, 52, is alleged to have made the threat Tuesday after the mayor asked council to reconsider a previously defeated development in South Pandosy. It narrowly passed Monday.

Public court documents show Bruce Edward Taylor has been arrested and convicted on numerous charges dating back to the late 1990s.

These include multiple charges of uttering threats in Coquitlam and Burnaby in February of 2002. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Taylor was also charged with assault causing bodily harm for incidents in Surrey in November of 1999 and August of 2000. He was handed a one-year probationary sentence for the 1999 incident.

Over the years, he was also charged with resisting a peace officer, mischief under $5,000, theft under $5,000, breach of probation and undertaking, fraud and production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking.
