Political Interference in Portapique Mass Shooting Investigation
RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki made a promise to the Minister of Public Safety, and the Prime Minister’s Office, that she would release information on the April 18th-19th shootings. This even after Superintendent Darren Campbell said he thought this would jeopardize their entire investigation.
We now know that the federal government interfered in this investigation because they hoped they could use this tragedy to push new gun legislation.
This political interference undermines public confidence in the Mass Casualty Commission while re-victimizing families and all others affected by this tragedy that killed 22 innocent people and an unborn baby. Absolutely shameful.
