Newly Disclosed RCMP Email Shocks Dziekanski Inquiry On What Was To Be The Final Day!

"The inquiry into the RCMP's fatal confrontation with Robert Dziekanski was put on hold today until September after a potentially explosive e-mail exchange between RCMP brass surfaced just as closing submissions were about to begin.

Inquiry Commissioner Thomas Braidwood says he's “appalled” that the information didn't come out until now and said further testimony is needed to sort through what the exchange means.

The Braidwood inquiry was thrown into disarray with the release of a previously undisclosed e-mail between two senior Mounties which suggests the four RCMP officers who went into the fatal confrontation with Mr. Dziekanski were planning to use a taser before they even saw him.

That would be in contrast to testimony from the Mounties that they did not talk at all en route to the confrontation at Vancouver International Airport.

Commission counsel Art Vertlieb, who outlined the e-mail between a chief superintendent and assistant commissioner, is proposing to recall the Mounties to testify again.

The e-mail, written on Nov. 5, 2007, was disclosed only recently by the federal Justice Department to commission counsel."

I'm wondering if instructions came from the PMO? It seems Harper likes to be all-controlling and this is right up his street.

Or else, it could be his public safety minister Peter Van Loan.

Just a feeling I get about the whole situation.

This last-minute matter rather derails months of work, doesn't it and undermines the entire system of
commissions and hearings.


When it comes to the RCMP, or any police force for that matter, I am always torn between feelings of absolute admiration and utter disgust. It is so difficult to accept that with in the group of men and women in the RCMP, a group that on a daily basis puts themselves in harms way to protect and serve the general public, that the vile and disgusting human garbage who murder Robert Dziekanski actually co-exist. What is even more shocking is how apparently good officers, (and I believe the overwhelming majority are good) will go to great lengths to defend the scum amongst them.

I’m too angry to write more, but thank you Leftdog for posting this thread so quickly.

This saga will continue ....

Seems like they need some finer toothed combs.
