Dear Sir/Madam

With all due respect, it is requested that you review this new book and website available at www.swissair111.ca   As indicated by the name, it deals with the faulty investigation of the Swissair 111 air crash of 98 SEP 02 near Peggy’s Cove, N.S.  The book covers details of the investigation that the CBC’s The Fifth Estate program of September, 2011, could not cover.  Those newly revealed details implicate former senior members of the RCMP and the TSB in some very serious infractions of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Please give this matter your attention as the book is now available to the public, as is the website with all its supporting documents.

Bob Paulson set to retire as RCMP commissioner

LINK TO CBC NEWS ITEM

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

After what will be almost 39 years of service,
32 in the RCMP and five and a half as Commissioner,
the time has come for me to retire.

My last day of work will be June 30, 2017
and I am excited to be able to focus on my family.

This will give the Government time to identify my replacement
and we will no doubt hear more about that in due course.

In the meantime though,
we have some challenges and work ahead of us.

- We must try to resolve these historical
yet persistent harassment claims;

- We will continue to build, expand and improve
our nascent mental health strategy
to preserve and restore
our employee's mental and emotional wellness;

- We must continue to improve our workplace for all of our employees
by focusing on respect, inclusiveness, tolerance and diversity;

- in April we will be tried on labour code charges
arising from the murder of our colleagues in Moncton;

-and of course I am committed to pursuing equitable pay
and providing a modern labour relations framework for our employees.

No small list.

These issues and those who follow them closely
will make for a busy and challenging spring
but we will - as we do - persevere
in order that we can keep delivering on our primary mission
- keeping Canadians safe and secure.

As I said when I was first appointed Commissioner in 2011,
it is a profound honour and a privilege
to be able to serve in this great Force
along side the good men and women who come to work each day
and commit to this vital mission.

Harassment persists in RCMP
outgoing Commissioner Paulson says

Last week, an Ontario Superior Court judge ruled against the RCMP in a harassment case, awarding Sergeant Peter Merrifield $141,000 for his mistreatment and denouncing the conduct of his commanding officers.  Commissioner Paulson testified at the trial, saying he had been led to believe Sgt. Merrifield was a disgruntled employee whose accusations against his superiors were groundless.

After the ruling, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked whether he still had full confidence in Commissioner Paulson.

“The fact is, we have an awful lot of work to do. And I know that the RCMP is taking very seriously the responsibility to shift the culture in a way that makes sure that in any workplace – whether we’re talking about police forces or Canadian Forces members or anyone in any workplace across this country – that we are protecting them from harassment and intimidation,” Mr. Trudeau said.

Lately, the Mounties have also been facing challenges in their primary responsibility: to investigate major crimes. A series of big-ticket investigations – involving a human-trafficking ship from Sri Lanka, alleged overseas corruption by a Canadian company, a Vancouver terrorism sting and the trial of Senator Mike Duffy – have fallen flat, with judges and juries finding that evidence gathered by Mounties was not persuasive enough to convict suspects.

Forwarding the complaint to the RCMP by the CRCC
fails to meet the need for a complete and independent investigation.
The RCMP has had several opportunities to investigate this matter,
and they have
failed to take proper and legal action each time.
Instead, they lied to the public, to the media,
and have threatened or intimidated those who would be witnesses.

One can only wonder if
Commissioner Paulson and his soon to be announced replacement,
and indeed the Federal Government,
want this matter opened to the public.

CANADIAN TORTURE VICTIM ABDULLAH ALMALKI CALLS APOLOGY A VICTORY FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

It was one of the darkest chapters in Canada's so-called war on terror. 

Soon after the 9/11 attacks, four Canadian citizens were detained and tortured in Syria and Egypt based on faulty intelligence originating in Canada.

It was over a decade ago that one of those men, Maher Arar, received an apology and settlement from the Canadian government for his ordeal.

But it wasn't until March 17, for the other three men, Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad Abou-Elmaati and Muayyed Nureddin, to finally receive apologies and settlements of their own.

LINK TO CBC NEWS ITEM

APOLOGIES FOR TORTURE SEEM TO BE THE HARDEST WORDS

What the Trudeau Liberals felt was a worthy apology for the damage that Liberal governments past and present had done to Almalki, Abou-Elmaati and Nureddin was issued on Friday, March 17 at 4:58 p.m. on a government website.
. . . . .

On Dec 8, 2006, the Toronto Star editorialized that then prime minister Stephen Harper's job was to restore confidence "in the RCMP, an iconic national institution," as opposed to ensuring the Mounties would never again be engaged in torture complicity. The Globe and Mail similarly called the Arar saga one of the "great RCMP bungles," as if it were some unfortunate mistake instead of the result of a calculated, dangerous, racist game targeting individuals because of their faith and heritage.

When then-RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli issued an apology to Arar, it suffered from the same linguistic deficiency as the Trudeau government's 2017 apology. Zaccardelli simply said sorry "for whatever part the actions of the RCMP may have contributed to the terrible injustices that you experienced." There was no mention of torture, and the actions of the Mounties were treated as speculative. The Toronto Star's headline that day also showed a particularly disturbing institutional bias: "Top Mountie's Tough Day."

Some Mounties swapping red serge for blue as they seek jobs with other forces

Heavy caseloads, a toxic workplace culture, officer safety and low pay are among the reasons Mounties are choosing to leave the RCMP for new careers at other Canadian police forces.

.... he started thinking about leaving ....
once he became fully aware of, as he put it, a "cut-throat culture" where he felt training, promotions and transfers were awarded based on favouritism.

Someone in RCMP Headquarters was tasked to check out my website.

It seems that the RCMP provided the information to the Minister
so his office could offer this memo.

The foxes have been asked to offer their opinion on who stole the chickens.

It is quite apparant that the Federal Government
does not wish to open this matter.
Perhaps that says something
about the initial demand to have the crash ruled as an accident.

RCMP Headquarters and "H" Div again checked out my website.
There are only 65 pages on the website,
so it is likely that several very highly placed members viewed the site.

Since it is an RCMP proxy server,
any searches conducted by 'H' Div Halifax
would be processed through this server.

Because of the Chronicle Herald's book review
and its Question & Answer column,
it is possible that questions were asked
of the Commanding Officer for 'H' Div.
by the
Nova Scotia Government's Dept. of Justice
Those questions would then likely have been forwarded
to the Commissioner's office in Ottawa.

WHY OMAR KHADR IS GETTING $10M
FROM THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT

Zackerdelli and Elliott were the RCMP's Commissioners during this period.
Is there any wonder that his civil rights were broken?

LINK TO GLOBAL NEWS REPORT

"In February 2003, Canadian Foreign Affairs intelligence officer and an official from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) were allowed to interrogate Khadr.  For three weeks prior to the Canadian visit, the US guards deprived Khadr of sleep, moving him to a new cell every three hours for 21 days in order to "make him more amenable and willing to talk."
. . . .  Protesting that DFAIT and CSIS had been allowed to interrogate Khadr, but not the RCMP, Supt. Mike Cabana resigned his post in Project O Canada."

PROJECT O CANADA

It was later criticised for bringing together forty members from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's (RCMP) Commercial Crimes, IPOC, and National Security Investigations branches, Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), Customs and Revenue Agency, Canada Border Services Agency, the Quebec and Ontario provincial police, and local officers from Hull, Gatineau and Ottawa. The team was composed almost entirely of individuals with no knowledge of intelligence gathering, Islam, or human rights issues, and was simply told to cooperate fully with the American Federal Bureau of Investigation and Central Intelligence Agency, turning over all information without hesitation.
The project was ultimately found to have played a "central role" in the wrongful rendition and torture of Canadian citizens, including Maher Arar, who was tortured for ten months before being found innocent of the officers' claims that he was "suspected of being linked to the Al Qaeda terrorist movement".

Once The Fifth Estate program aired in September of 2011,
a memo was sent to the Commissioner, RCMP HQ
asking if they intended to doing anything further regarding my complaint.
A response was received from Joseph HINCKE,
Professional Integrity Officer.
As I did not like his response, a rebuttal was forwarded,
which was then answered by his stand-in.
I always wondered where Joseph HINCKE had gone.
Today, a very observant reader gave me the answer.
I have included his bio in the section dealing with this matter,
and my link follows.
THE JOSEPH HINCKE MATTER
This bio was copyied from the
Transportation Safety Board of Canada website.
He joined that agency in 2012 April,
one month after he responded negatively to my complaint.
He would have been previously interviewed for the job,
and would have given notice to the RCMP,
all of which would have taken more than one month.
How much integrity did he have?
Corruption and Conflict of Interest seem rampant!
