"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⟫.


The below-referred Public Complaint against RCMP Commissioner Brenda LUCKI is serious and in the vernacular, it's already breathing down the neck of this government.

ONLY ONE THING can stop it.

ONLY ONE THING can possibly prevent it from proceeding: +
the (timely) retirement or resignation of @CommrRCMPGRC.

Should Commissioner LUCKI take her own 'walk in the snow', the investigation would come to an abrupt end as the RCMP Act would no longer have jurisdiction over 'Citizen LUCKI'.

Questions around her conduct would end. +
BUT, BEFORE THE READER 'all hope abandon[s]' (nod to Dante Alighieri's work, Inferno), find attached a copy of Press Release, dated 27 August 2021, issued by Coalition for Criminal Accountability for Flight PS752.

On Page 2, 1️⃣ specifically seeks a Canadian criminal +

This aspect survives regardless whether Commissioner LUCKI chooses to abruptly exit ... 'Stage Left' - as a new Commissioner would face the very same decision.

2️⃣ includes the deliberate phraseology: "and all the circumstances surrounding that decision". +
Even though the decision bears the signature of RCMP Commissioner, that doesn't mean it is her decision. Only her signature on it. Nonetheless, she remains responsible for it - hence the Public Complaint.

The spectre of political pressure (and of political interference) +
is alleged. While certain aspects of a code of conduct investigation would fall away in the event of her departure, the overarching question of whether political pressure and/or political interference - in whatever manifestation - had entered the decision-making process, +
... that would survive.

SEEN IN THIS LIGHT, the new mandate letter provides this government an opportune mechanism with which to remove Commissioner LUCKI.

THAT'S HOW MUCH TIME @CBCNews has spent on reporting the following THREE (3) critically important aspects of Flight #PS752 story. (by Frame)

CBC is eminently selective - meaning, it reports nothing which challenges or illuminates the 'narrative' of this government. +


OFFICIAL POSITION of this government #GoC:

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

** ONLY KNOWN because family remembers recorded a private meeting with gov't lawyers. Used with permission.+

@CBCNews has NOT reported this aspect.

1️⃣ (Cont'd)

The OFFICIAL POSITION #GoC conflicts and is at odds with decision of Ontario Superior Court of Justice (May 20, 2021) in ZAREI v Iran.+

ULTIMATELY, and indeed appropriately, a future Judge acting as the final 'trier of fact' will ultimately determine what constitutes "exigent circumstances" in relation to "reasonable limits" that Charter #CCRF permits.

THAT SAID, PLEASE SEE attached four (4)Threads, with Links:

COURTESY NOTE: Please be advised that this Thread is lengthy.

HAVING ALREADY ADDRESSED the requirement for search warrants AND pointed out (the spectre of) possible "improper complicity" between agencies -

CANADIANS will need to pay close attention to any police operation.
IF CANADIANS should end up seeing that @OttawaPolice @OPSChiefSloly have failed to obtain necessary search warrants, AND if instead, they see police 'piggybacking' on authority of @CASO_SAEO for anything other than being limited to assisting by 'standing by to keep the peace'

AS A FORMER RCMP (Ret'd), I defended and respect Canada's Constitution and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

THAT defence and respect did not end with retirement.

RISKING SERIOUS UNDERSTATEMENT, I am concerned about the appearance of mounting
political pressure (and ultimately, interference). One doesn't have to 'see' it. It's like anchovies in a Caesar salad. You man not be able to see them, but your discernment tells you they are there.

WHATEVER @OttawaPolice operational plan for #FreedomConvoy2022, it must act
in accordance with Canadian law.

Some trucks are being lived in and as such, those trucks will be deemed a dwelling house. They cannot be entered without a search warrant. Period. The provisions of Section 487 of the Criminal Code of Canada apply. (PART 1)(See 6)
