Vic Toews and the Missing Women
Is there any truth Stephen Harper's Con regime won't try to deny? Is there anyone they won't try to muzzle?
The federal public safety minister’s office tried to scale back an apology the RCMP delivered earlier this year to the families of serial killer Robert Pickton’s victims, Postmedia News has learned.
The revised statement did not include any acknowledgement that the RCMP “could have done more” in the Pickton investigation and the apology was limited to saying “how very sorry we are for the loss of your loved ones.”
And how deep is the depth of Vic Toews' moral depravity?
Email records show that shortly before the RCMP statement was issued, Julie Carmichael, press secretary to Public Safety Minister Vic Toews, wrote to Daniel Lavoie, the RCMP’s executive director of public affairs in Ottawa, requesting changes to the text.
“Daniel — please find attached the revised product,” she wrote. The next line was underlined for emphasis: “Please ensure the statement issued is reflective of these changes.”
For he will use the grisly case of the deranged killer Luka Magnotta to shamelessly plug his totalitarian internet snooping bill.
Because once he's sunk his teeth into something, he just won't won't give up eh?
But he wasn't prepared to allow the RCMP to apologize for botching their investigation into the murderous activities of the butcher Robert Pickton.
Even though, along with the Vancouver police force, they mishandled the case from the very beginning. As this report clearly shows. (PDF)
It's almost impossible to deal with a situation if you not first recognize it as what it truly is. Both the VPD and the RCMP initially failed to recognize the Missing Women issue. When they did recognize the problem they failed to act appropriately and accept ownership.
While investigators tried to determine what had happened to the Missing Women they were not supported by Senior Management. This lack of oversight resulted in investigations that lacked direction, staffing, and resources.
But still Toews didn't want the RCMP to apologize to the victims and all those who loved them. Because for him and the other members of Stephen Harper's morally vacuous regime, power means never having to say you're sorry.
Oh boy. Keep your eyes on Vic eh? Because until his internet snooping bill is dead and buried, he's still dangerous.
Defeat the Cons before they drag us all into their ghastly sewer.
Never forgive what happened.
Never forget these women...
