Breaking: RCMP reveal that Blair and Trudeau interfered in NS shootings

Post by Gone_Fishin »

Unreal.

Blair and Trudeau ordered information released that could jeopardize the investigation for political gain.

Trudeau's no stranger to interfering in criminal investigations, but I thought he'd learned his lesson after the last uproar.

RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki tried to ‘jeopardize’ mass murder investigation to advance Trudeau’s gun control efforts


RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki “made a promise” to Public Safety Minister Bill Blair and the Prime Minister’s Office to leverage the mass murders of April 18/19, 2020 to get a gun control law passed.

A week after the murders, Lucki pressured RCMP in Nova Scotia to release details of the weapons used by the killer. But RCMP commanders in Nova Scotia refused to release such details, saying doing so would threaten their investigation into the murders.

The Trudeau government’s gun control objectives were spelled out in an order in council issued in May 2020, and were encapsulated in Bill C-21, which was tabled last month, but the concern in April 2020 was the extent to which politics threatened to interfere with a cross-border police investigation into how the killer managed to obtain and smuggle into Canada four illegal guns used to commit many of the 22 murders.

The RCMP subsequently learned the killer paid a man named Neil Gallivan to purchase one assault-style rifle at a 2019 gun show in Houlton, Maine. The killer also obtained two illegal handguns from a close friend and collector named Sean Conlogue.

No charges have been laid against either Gallivan or Conlogue, and it’s still unclear why.

Shortly after the news conference Campbell, Asst. Commander Lee Bergerman, Leather, and Nova Scotia Communications director Lia Scanlan were summoned to a meeting. RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki and a deputy from Ottawa were on the conference call. Lucki was not happy.

Campbell’s handwritten notes made immediately following that meeting describe what happened:

The Commissioner was obviously upset. She did not raise her voice but her choice of words was indicative of her overall dissatisfaction with our work. The Commissioner accused us (me) of disrespecting her by not following her instructions. I was and remain confused over this. The Commissioner said she told Comms to tell us at H Division to include specific info about the firearms used by [the killer]….However I said we couldn’t because to do so would jeopardize ongoing efforts to advance the U.S. side of the case as well as the Canadian components of the investigation. Those are facts and I stand by them.

Campbell noted that Lucki went on at length and said she was “sad and disappointed” that he had not provided these details to the media. Campbell continued:

The Commissioner said she had promised the Minister of Public Safety and the Prime Minister’s Office that the RCMP (we) would release this information. I tried to explain there was no intent to disrespect anyone however we could not release this information at this time. The Commissioner then said that we didn’t understand, that this was tied to pending gun control legislation that would make officers and the public safer. She was very upset and at one point Deputy Commissioner (Brian) Brennan tried to get things calmed down but that had little effect. Some in the room were reduced to tears and emotional over this belittling reprimand.

snip

Contravening the agreed protocol, throughout the early hours of Sunday evening, RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki agreed to a number of one-on-one interviews with reporters. At 7:36pm, CBC News quoted Lucki as stating there were 13 victims; at 7:40pm, CTV reported Lucki had said 14 victims; and at 7:56pm, the Canadian Press quoted Lucki as having confirmed 17 dead, including the gunman.

The public and the press corps were both confused and alarmed.

“So how does it happen that Commissioner Lucki….?”, MCC lawyer Krista Smith started to ask Communications director Lia Scanlan during an interview last February.

“I don’t know, ask National Headquarters,” retorted Scanlan.“The commissioner releases a body count that we (Communications) don’t even have. She went out and did that. It was all political pressure. That is 100% Minister Blair and the Prime Minister. And we have a Commissioner that does not push back.”

Yup. blueliner pointed to that here

I suppose the Trudeau Liberal excusers are waiting for their talking points - my guess is "throw her under the bus".

Beats me why they won't just hold him accountable for what's going on under his watch.

Good God Bill Blair, you are a compulsive liar

"The issue was raised in the House of Commons on Tuesday, where the Conservatives accused the governing Liberals of interfering in an active police investigation. Bill Blair, minister of emergency preparedness, insisted that no one from the government issued directions to Lucki."

"It's apparent that the Opposition is more interested in drama than in truth," said Blair, who was public safety minister in April 2020. "The commissioner has confirmed that no direction and no pressure was given by me or by any member of this government to direct her in any way."

More.
LILLEY: Trudeau interfered with RCMP in Nova Scotia shooting, says report


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau used the mass shooting in Nova Scotia to advance his political goals, and interfered in an active police investigation to do it.

That’s the evidence presented at the inquiry into the April 2020 shooting that took lives of 22 people.


The evidence, including interviews with senior RCMP officers and officials — including handwritten notes — are enough to call for Trudeau and RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki to resign.

The report, released Tuesday by the public inquiry into the mass shooting that took place in Nova Scotia on April 18-19, 2020, paints a grim picture.

It shows a national police force that is in disarray and clearly prone to political interference — something that should never happen.

The report includes testimony from Supt. Darren Campbell, who was the public face of the RCMP in Nova Scotia and Lia Scanlan, director of communications for the Mounties in the region. They both described a meeting they were summoned to on April 28, one week after the shooting.

RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki was upset that those leading the investigation in Nova Scotia had not released the kinds of firearms used by the killer, something investigators said would compromise their work.

“The commissioner said she had promised the Minister of Public Safety and the Prime Minister’s Office that the RCMP (we) would release this information,” read the handwritten notes Campbell took at the time.

“I tried to explain there was no intent to disrespect anyone; however, we could not release this information at this time. The commissioner then said that we didn’t understand, that this was tied to pending gun control legislation that would make officers and the public safer.”

Scanlan, in an interview with the inquiry, backed up what was in Campbell’s notes and said that Trudeau and then-public safety minister Bill Blair were interfering, “weighing in on what we could and couldn’t say.”

snip

“That is 100% Minister Blair and the Prime Minister. And we have a commissioner that does not push back,” Scanlan said in her February 2022 interview.

Just three days after that April 28, 2020 meeting where Campbell said that Lucki made clear she had promised certain information be released ahead of legislation being introduced, the Trudeau government acted. They announced that they were issuing an order in council effectively banning the AR-15 rifle and 1,500 other models from use in Canada.

snip

The massacre in Portapique was preventable if people had done their jobs properly. They didn’t and that is what the inquiry should be mainly focused on.

This latest report, though, has given us a window into the lengths that Trudeau, Blair and Lucki were willing to use the massacre for their own political agenda. It should be noted that Blair has denied any pressure was exerted, but I don’t believe him and neither should you.

He, along with Trudeau and Lucki should be run out of office and forever hang their heads in shame.

Will Blair fall on his sword, or will Justin go down with him on this one?

More of the same…dodge, deflect and duck, but NEVER answer a straight forward question. Ever.

What a distressing time to be Canadian.

This lousy, flea ridden, dishonest and hateful gov’t is rotten to the core. The rot has spread to besmirch what was once a very proud institution, our RCMP.

Whatever their filthy hands touch also catches the Niberal pox. No cure known but Off With Their Heads.

I mean, it's not as if the Trudeau government has ever interfered with a criminal investigation before, right?

When you need to convince Canadians to support your extremist, useless, partisan gun bans, Liberals lie in wait for a grieving nation to be vulnerable, then pounce. The brutality is shocking

Here the evidence is in B & W.

https://masscasualtycommission.ca/files ... 1655836035
255. At the meeting, Commr. Lucki expressed disappointment in the press briefings carried out by the Nova Scotia RCMP. In particular, Commr. Lucki felt that the Nova Scotia RCMP had disobeyed her instructions to include specific information on the firearms used by the perpetrator. In his notes, Supt. Campbell indicated that he had told the Nova Scotia RCMP Strategic Communications Unit not to release information about the perpetrator’s firearms out of concern that it would jeopardize the ongoing investigation into the perpetrator’s access to firearms, which was being carried out both by the RCMP and United States law enforcement.

• Handwritten notes of Supt. D. Campbell: COMM0058640 at p. 51

256. According to Supt. Campbell’s notes, Commr. Lucki stated that “she had promised the Minister of
Public Safety and the Prime Minister’s Office that the RCMP, (we) would release this information.”

• Handwritten notes of Supt. D. Campbell: COMM0058640 at p. 51

257. Supt. Campbell’s notes indicate that when he attempted to explain the reasoning for not releasing this information, Commr. Lucki stated that “we [the Nova Scotia RCMP] didn’t understand, that this was tied to pending gun control legislation that would make officers and public safer by or through this legislation.”
Just for fun, pull up the PDF and check the link to, “Handwritten notes of Supt. D. Campbell: COMM0058640 at p. 51”

Or it me who has a problem?

But I still think we would be safer if we could stop people from buying guns in the US and smuggling them across the border for whatever use. :biggrin:

Pull the coalition plug you loser.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh also called for a “full investigation” into the matter.

“The allegations that the Prime Minister’s Office or the Public Safety Minister’s office directed RCMP Commissioner Lucki to interfere in an ongoing police investigation are very disturbing,” Mr. Singh said in a statement.

“The idea that this government – that any government – would use this horrific act of mass murder to gain support for their gun policy is completely unacceptable. Not only is this inappropriate, it fuels cynicism about our democracy and the elected officials who participate in it.”

Hey Jagmeet, just yesterday you voted to pull the plug on debate after 3 hours on Trudeau's latest round of attacks on law abiding firearms owners, C-21, which was introduced while the bodies were still warm in Uvalde.

Dirty hypocritical pigs these leftists are!

Blair, Trudeau, and Lucki (remember she was rumoured to be married to Morneau's cousin when Justin appointed her?) should all resign immediately and be criminally charged for obstruction of justice and interfering in a criminal investigation.

He wants us to believe the minister answered the questions in a fulsome way. Can't give a straight answer.

Liars, the whole lot of them.
