RCMP 'Horribly Broken' Special Investigator Finds
OTTAWA — Former RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli was an “autocratic” leader who punished whistleblowers, and the force's entire management structure is “horribly broken,” a government-appointed investigator in the Mounties' pension-fund scandal has concluded.
Lawyer David Brown called for a task force to conduct an “urgent review” of the force's management and recommend sweeping changes by Dec. 14 of this year.
In a report released in Ottawa on Friday afternoon, Mr. Brown not only vindicated RCMP whistleblowers but blasted senior Mounties and especially Mr. Zaccardelli.
