Former high-profile BCSC enforcement director is gone

BC Securities Commission says Teresa Mitchell-Banks' departure 'a personnel matter'

Teresa Mitchell-Banks, a high-profile former Crown prosecutor hired by the BC Securities Commission in 2012, is no longer with the BCSC, but it’s not clear whether she quit or was fired.

She could not be reached for comment.

The BCSC confirmed she no longer works there, but declined to comment on whether she quit or was let go.

“Teresa was a valued colleague, and we wish her well,” Richard Gilhooley, media relations officer for the BCSC, said in an email. “As this is a personnel matter, we will not be commenting further.”

Banks is a former high-profile Crown prosecutor who is best known for her prosecutions against organized crime, and who was part of a special prosecutors unit that worked on the famous Bacon brothers trial.

She was tapped for the BCSC’s director of enforcement post in 2012.

According to the BCSC’s annual filings, Mitchell-Banks made $286,048 in 2014, including pension and other benefits.
