Winnipeg police Chief Devon Clunis hasn’t had a single doughnut in the entire 30 years he’s been a police officer. He told CBC, “I haven’t had once since I became a police officer because I refused to feed the stereotype.” Thirty years is a long time to go without a doughnut though, so on Friday, his last day before retirement, the force treated Clunis to a round one to celebrate. He didn’t seem very thrilled at the idea, but everyone deserves to get a little crazy on their last day of work. And for some, “crazy” is taking one bite out of a chocolate doughnut.
Chief Clunis will be greatly missed at the WPD. His list of accomplishments is long enough to inspire a whole generation of little police officers. He has raised over one-million dollars in support of Winnipeg charities, has a contagious dedication to community and was the first black Canadian appointed as a police chief in Canada. We’d give up doughnuts, too, if it meant we’d do our jobs that well.
@wpgpolice Hey! If anyone deserves a nice gooey doughnut, it’s Chief Clunis!

He may have broken his fast, but it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing Clunis hanging around the Tim Horton’s pastry case very often. Sounds like one was enough to last him another 30 years.
