"Mendicino said Lucki's success will be based on whether she meets the objectives laid out in the new letter. We will be able to track that progress, I think, very specifically, because the language itself is specific,"

.@CommrRCMPGRC appeared before Special Joint Committee on Declaration of Emergency (DEDC) on May 10, 2022.

She (flat-footedly) tried to sidestep questions concerning the invoking of #EmergenciesAct; BUT ultimately; she failed, ... miserably! +

NO SURVEY IS REQUIRED to state that with the exception of a very few, NO ONE would be surprised if this government now views her as a ⟪LIABILITY⟫.

@giftedtypist⁩ This whole chapter piles on another layer of trauma and distrust for families who already feel they have been disrespected and left in the dark by this inquiry. #MCC #Portapique #RCMP…
(Imagine the family members of victims who’ve had to wait two fucking years to hear this and other important testimony!)

@GregMercerGlobe Chris Wortman, GW’s uncle, and a former RCMP officer, was interviewed 10 days after the mass shooting in April, 2020.…
Remember @RCMPNS’s Darren Campbell and the yarns he was spinning in 2020 about the #NSMassMurder?

Looks like RCMP kicked him upstairs. #MCC #Portapique Image

If you think #OttawaPolice & #RCMP went in alone, you’re living in a false utopia.

Mercenaries & Defence Contractors Are as #Canadian as Maple Syrup

Let me introduce you to Predator Security Defense™️

@JustinTrudeau knows these guys all to well Amongst others, Like #Academi / #blackwater .. He’s used them in his security detail in Canada and overseas.

These guys are the best of the best.

Security or paid mercenaries? 🤔

Let’s see what services the predators have to offer
Their employees 👉 Prior military combat veterans, US Special Programs (Special forces, navy seals) or Tactical Law Enforcement (Swat).

🇨🇦🚔🛩️ With the Ontario Provincial Police #OPP circling the anti-vax rally today, I figured I should make a thread about what we can tease out of the behaviour of their surveillance Cessna, and if any of that can be applied to other aircraft in the fleet. 🧵
First, consult the Canadian Civil Aircraft Register (CCAR), and search using the name the OPP has their aircraft registered under:

"Province Of Ontario, Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services"

Now you have a list of all their aircraft. 👍…
Pop that in a spreadsheet for later, and use the registration numbers to hand-roll a search for the aircraft using #ADSBexchange.

When @geoffmeggs delivered the news to the @bcgreencaucus that the @bcndp were going to support the #CGL #frackedgas pipeline I asked him how they would deal with the long-established blockades on #Wetsuweten territory. He said it was under control. Clearly not! 2/ #bcpoli

"In the past week, I have received what I would call threatening and harassing emails from the lawyer acting for the Government of Canada. Very distressing emails." (18:11)

@ps752justice #PS752 #Elxn44 #cdnpoli
WHEN GOVERNMENT lawyers are so audacious as to (brazenly) threaten and harass a lawyer acting on behalf of the families of Flight PS752, during an existing proceeding before the courts -

WHEN strong-arming becomes visible ...
'obstruct,pervert or defeat the course of justice' CAN'T be far behind.

☞ What is the likelihood that this government did not exert (political) pressure on @CommrRCMPGRC @rcmpgrcpolice to insure NO Canadian criminal investigation?

IF LEFT UNCHALLENGED to its present course, this Liberal government will bury this crime.

RUNNING ROUGHSHOD over rights of victims and families, this government together with the RCMP are turning a deaf ear to the cries for justice.

ENOUGH. We'll announce the NEXT STEP.

Speaking about Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752, a government spokesperson states the official position of this Liberal government:

"The Government of Canada does not consider this an intentional act."

Three (3) spokespersons (attempt to) explain what justice looks like to the Government of Canada.

AS A FORMER @rcmpgrcpolice #RCMP (Ret'd), Criminal Code of Canada «DOES SUPPORT» a Canadian investigation and prosecution of the downing of Flight #PS752. Period.

This Liberal government does NOT want a Canadian criminal investigation. It wants the easier route.

DON'T LET Liberal wordplay befog you.

This government is maneuvering toward settlement and reparations, and away from criminal accountability.

IN MY OPINION - AS A FORMER @rcmpgrcpolice #RCMP (Ret'd), the decision by @CommrRCMPGRC is unjustifiable. (Attached) She has sloughed off (or if one prefers, sluffed off) and shirked her sworn responsibility under the laws of Canada onto the Ukraine.
Maintiens le Droit [Fr, "Uphold the Right"], the official motto of the ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE.

MY INTEGRITY, EVEN IN RETIREMENT, will not allow me to sit idly by or remain silent as this travesty

In the (lengthy) 16-Part Thread below, ask yourself after reading it: What is the likelihood that political interference has not cast its (ugly) shadow across this decision?

.@CommrRCMPGRC makes the decision «NOT» to open Canadian criminal investigation into the intentional shooting down of Flight PS752.

AND, @JustinTrudeau is content to accept it.

TRYING TO APPEASE 'Who', we don't know, perhaps the Iranian regime itself.

AS A FORMER @rcmpgrcpolice #RCMP(Ret'd), it is my opinion that what is referred to as Canada's 'Forensic Report' [hereafter, 'the Report'] is underwhelming and deeply disappointing. And, I wish that was the extent of it. But, it's not.

WHEN ALL IS SAID, the Report has effectively created a road map for the Iranian regime as it enters upcoming state-to-state negotiations.

'Connect-the-Dots' or 'Paint-by-Numbers' would be equally appropriate as descriptors. It reads like an 'Open-Book exam' with acceptable
answers provided.

FIVE (5) EXCERPTS THAT follow allow the reader to see for themselves examples from Report of areas where arguably a form of 'guidance' [italics] is being offered.

IF IT ISN'T amateurishness or incompetence, THEN one wonders whether it is 'by design'?

TWENTY-NINE (29) WORDS were all Prime Minister Trudeau needed to complete the steering away of his government's narrative from justice AND SHIFT TO negotiations and reparations.

TAKEN TOGETHER, the 'Forensic Report' [hereafter, the 'REPORT'] and the RCMP

Commissioner's letter [the 'LETTER'] to the families of the victims of Ukrainian International Airlines Flight PS752 #PS752 < CLEAR THE WAY > of the only potential obstacles and hindrances that might have prevented this (cunning) shift.
DON'T OVERLOOK these eight (8) seemingly innocuous-looking words in personal 'Message From The Prime Minister To The Families.'

NO MENTION of justice, ONLY reparations. The families view this as [quote] "blood money" in the absence of criminal culpability and prosecution.

"AS A FORMER @rcmpgrcpolice #RCMP (Ret'd), and as a Canadian, I am outraged."

I will NOT sit idly and I will NOT remain silent. 55 Canadian citizens (and their families) deserve nothing less than knowing THAT we, too, feel anguish.

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.” (Benjamin Franklin)

AS A FORMER @rcmpgrcpolice #RCMP (Ret'd), and as a Canadian, I am outraged.

WHAT FOLLOWS is my opinion.

@CommrRCMPGRC has recently conveyed her decision NOT to open a Canadian criminal investigation into the murder of 55 Canadian citizens aboard Ukraine

@ps752justice #cdnpoli
International Airlines Flight 752.

WHEAREAS,the attack upon Flight #PS752 has been ruled as "intentional" and "act of terrorism" in a recent Ontario Superior Court ruling.

AS SUCH, it's the second deadliest terrorist attack against Canadian citizens in Canada's history.
THIS ATROCITY is second only to the bombing of Air India Flight 182 (1985).

IN MY OPINION, this decision by RCMP Commissioner is clearly unreasonable as it has been made with a clear disregard for the provisions of Criminal Code of Canada.

An RCMP Commissioner who decides not to investigate the mass murder of 55 Canadian citizens HAS NEGLECTED HER DUTY.

Former @rcmpgrcpolice #RCMP (Ret'd)

Previous Thread

THE DECISION by the @CommrRCMPGRC @rcmpgrcpolice departs from and flies in the face of the provisions of Criminal Code of Canada.

It is indefensible.
