Should RCMP Commissioner Stay or Go?
The last few years have been quite turbulent for the RCMP. There have been a number of high profile cases that have “gone astray”….so to speak…such as the Airbus and Arar affairs. If you remember, during the last election, his blockbuster announcement related to the sponsorship scandal had a major impact on the political landscape.
Now RCMP Commissioner Zaccardelli is once again on the hot seat for some inconsistent comments as to what and when he knew about the false allegations against Maher Arar, the Canadian Citizen sent to Syria by US authorities based on false information provided by the RCMP.
Is this serious enough to merit Stephen Harper firing Zaccardelli? What do you think?
