Good morning. Today, I'm sitting in (virtually) on the testimony of RCMP Deputy Commissioner Brian Brennan before the Mass Casualty Commission. These threads can be quite long; you can avoid this by muting the hashtag #MCC
Brennan will be asked about:
• after-action reviews
• the H Division Issues Management Team
• communications within the RCMP and with the public
• H Division leadership challenges including the wellness review and summary report.

Here's Brennan

Cst. Greg Wiley's testimony before the Mass Casualty Commission will NOT be broadcast, and only those registered can watch the webcast. However, I WILL be live-tweeting his testimony, which is scheduled to begin in 10 minutes. You can avoid this threat by muting the hashtag #MCC
Both @skimber and I wrote about the #MCC's decision to grant Wiley special accommodations. Here's Kimber: halifaxexaminer.ca/province-house…

The #MCC opens today’s proceedings with a report from Australia 🇦🇺, points to the #PortArthur mass casualty event, rapid policy reaction.

Here’s the report: masscasualtycommission.ca/files/commissi…
It should be noted that the perp of the NS mass casualty event was unlicensed and his guns were illegal, rendering the gun control regime in Canada useless. 🇨🇦
The research shows that even though gun suicide and homicide rates continue to decline, the number of registered, legal guns has steadily increased 🤔

More guns = less death? 🇦🇺

#CLRJames' deceptively benign question: “what do they know of cricket, who only cricket know?”, was a challenge to the public to re-consider the game in England’s elitist orthodoxy.
Given James failed in this task, what is the story of #cricket from a people’s perspective? 1/14
Although no #history is ever ‘definitive’, cricket has always been particular about whose voices are heard.
Like James, the game has had other maverick historians of course. But the likes of Bowen, Birley and #Marqusee all suffered at the hands of the game’s establishment. 2/14
Given Birley recognised “cricket lovers do not like to be told new things”, #cricket in England is still defined by 'gentlemanly amateurism'.
But rather than a handful of gentlemen associated with the #MCC, the game’s growth owes everything to the efforts of ordinary people. 3/14

ICYMI, based on her (uninformed) testimony before the #MCC, this morning I called for Brenda Lucki to be removed as Commissioner of the RCMP: halifaxexaminer.ca/featured/the-v…

Good morning. I'm at today's proceedings of the Mass Casualty Commission. Brenda Lucki is continuing her testimony. You can avoid this thread by muting the hashtag #MCC
My takeaway from yesterday's testimony: It became apparent to me that Lucki rose to her position because she masterfully uses the lingo and distracting babble of bureaucracy to navigate through difficult waters without being drowned by the reality of, well, fact. #MCC
Lucki talks fast and broadly, owning success and placing the blame for failure on a stagnant institution — what are you going to do? #MCC

Good morning. I'm at the today's proceedings of the Mass Casualty Commission. This morning, Lee Bergerman is being asked a few final questions by the commissioners, and after a break, Brenda Lucki will begin testifying. #MCC
I'm purposefully late this morning, because I found yesterday's testimony from Bergerman underwhelming. As I wrote for this morning's Morning File (not yet published)... #MCC
Bergerman's testimony wasn't hugely revealing. At one point she said she had not been following the proceedings of the commission because she was out of the country with spotty internet.... #MCC

Today, Lee Bergerman is testifying. I expect this will last all day and possibly into tomorrow #MCC

Good morning. I'm at the Mass Casualty Commission; RCMP Chief Superintendent Chris Leather will testify today. This will be a long thread; you can avoid it by muting the hashtag #MCC
I've been trying to process Darren Campbell's 2-day testimony but I am both tired and feeling like I need more time to contemplate it before writing a coherent article about it. But some comments... #MCC
There's a lot of anger out there, which is both understandable and warranted. But I think we need a bit of nuance: a lot of things can be true at the same time. #MCC

Good morning. I'm at the proceedings of the Mass Casualty Commission. Today, Darren Campbell will be cross-examined by 8 lawyers representing participants, mostly victims' families. You can avoid this likely long testimony by muting the hashtag #MCC
The first lawyer is Rob Pineo, with Patterson Law, who has about 2 hours worth of questioning. #MCC
Discussion is about Campbell not having a "scribe," which is the person who writes down everything going on to make sure nothing gets lost. Incident Commander Jeff West had one on April 18/19, but Campbell never had one #MCC

Today, the #MCC is looking at the "psychological autopsy" of the killer. I was skeptical of it, and when I read it yesterday, I found my skepticism was entirely warranted.

Good morning. Today, Lisa Banfield is testifying at the Mass Casualty Commission. Her testimony will likely last all day, and will involve detail discussion of violence against her and others. If you want to avoid this, you can mute the hashtag #MCC

Yesterday, the commissioners released a ruling on Patterson Law's request for directly questioning Banfield and other issues. You can read the ruling here: masscasualtycommission.ca/files/document…

(1/3) #Attenzione a questa tecnica per rubarci l'account di #Instagram.

Ecco come funziona: ci contatta in privato un nostro amico e con la scusa di aiutarlo a vincere un concorso online ci chiede di inviargli uno #screenshot del link che riceveremo...
(2/3) #Attenzione, perché a scriverci non è veramente il nostro amico ma un #truffatore che gli ha rubato il #profilo.
(3/3) Mi raccomando, non rispondiamo e blocchiamolo subito, perché sarà proprio questo screenshot a permettere al malfattore di entrare nel nostro profilo e sottrarcelo.

Occhi aperti amici e diciamolo a tutti.

The Mass Casualty Commission #MCC has provided a detailed schedule of proceedings for the next 2 weeks...
I'm told that *each* of Lisa Banfield's five interviews with #MCC investigators is "multi-hours." I asked for as early access as is possible to the transcripts of those interviews in preparation for her oral testimony on Friday, July 15.
The schedule is as follows:
July 11 — Foundational document: Violence in the Perpetrator’s Family of Origin
July 12 — Foundational document: Perpetrator’s Violence Towards Others
Witness: Brenda Forbes
