While folding review of the CBSA into the existing RCMP civilian watchdog may be effective, the lack of consultation and details is troubling. And the likelihood of this being passed before the fall election seems close to nil. cbc.ca/news/politics/… #cdnpoli
As per @Safety_Canada backgrounder, new body will be called the "Public Complaints and Review Commission" & will replace the @rcmpgrcpolice Civilian Review and Complaints Commission. Full legislation still not up online, tho. canada.ca/en/public-safe… #cdnpoli
@Safety_Canada @rcmpgrcpolice And here, finally, is the full legislation - bill #C98 - that would create the Public Complaints and Review Commission (PCRC). Mostly builds on the existing RCMP review body, the CCRC.
Interesting to note how it handles national security related @CanBorder review and complaints: The PCRC would send them over to the proposed National Security & Intelligence Review Agency, which would be created with the adoption of Bill #C59
This is the same way that national security related reviews and complaints related to the @rcmpgrcpolice are being handled. #c98 #c59 #cdnpoli
Would note that since #C59 was introduced in 2017, @ICLMG & others have argued that NSIRA should be able to hear complaints regarding @CanBorder. So this is a positive development... except that, again, the chance of #C98 passing before election 2019 is close to 0%. #c98
Result being that we end up with no independent review body for @CanBorder, and the agency tasked with accepting complaints on #nationalsecurity can't take any related to problems travellers have at Canada's borders. #cdnpoli #c59 #c98
@CanBorder Aaaannnndd, apparently I forgot to include the link to Bill #C98 - the whole reason for this thread in the first place: parl.ca/DocumentViewer… #CBSA #cdnpoli #C59 #cdnnatsec
