RCMP staff stated that Commissioner Brenda Lucky was not involved in the 2020 Nova Scotia mass shooting for political reasons. pressured by the government to release information about

Lucky later said it wasn't, but it does indicate that Chief is both of his Supts. Darren Campbell and former RCMP Strategic Communications Director Lia Scanlan are sticking to their story. The was revealed at a House Public Safety Committee hearing on Tuesday.

According to them, LuckiBill indicated that she was pressured by Public Safety Minister Blair to prematurely release information about the gun used in the shooting. It is said that Because she will help the Trudeau government enact gun control laws.

In this space in June, Lucki wrote that she could no longer be RCMP Commissioner. it remains true.

Canadians have no doubt that Lucki is in a politically precarious position, but we are still here.

We added at the time that the Liberal government was responsible for causing this chaos. Yes, Lucky seems to have gone along with the politicization of her work, but that only happened because liberals urged her to do so.

Lucky's fault is that she goes along with it. to do she should own it.

She is not on the liberal staff. She is the head of RCMP. She could - and in this case certainly should - say no to a request from the government, yet she did not.

But the origin of this story It is in the way liberal governments have clearly seen the national tragedy as a political opportunity for them and sought to mobilize the police to act in line with their agenda.

We see an obsession with useless gun laws that do nothing to reduce crime. We don't endorse it, but we know they will continue to propose laws that affect legal gun owners, but actually stop illegal guns from being used in crime.

What we don't get is why liberals think it's okay to use the Nova Scotia shootings as fodder for their partisan agenda. This is embarrassing content.
