|RCMP Commissioner Paulson|
The problem is so bad that Ralph Goodale, the Minister of Public Safety, announced on Friday that Commissioner Paulson was going to be fired.
Well... Goodale didn't actually come out and say the word "fired" but he used other words like "...Canadians will not tolerate any half measures in the response here," .... "It's an embarrassment" .... "this kind of conduct and behaviour is simply unacceptable in the most absolute of terms and it's got to stop" .... "my outrage at this situation".
These phrases and words are clearly preparing the Canadian public for a change at RCMP headquarters.

But there is more going one behind this story than just sex.
Sexual harassment within the RCMP is what is getting the headlines but sexual harassment is only a symptom of a much deeper malaise within the RCMP.
In 2012, the Commissioner Paulson was provided with video tape evidence by Mr. Lonie Lundred of Quesnel, British Columbia, that RCMP officers may have been involved in the disappearance of one or murder victims on the Highway of Tears. To the best of our knowledge, no one from the RCMP contacted Mr. Lundred to review or investigate his evidence.
Mr. Bush, a completely innocent young man, was shot in the back of the head at close range by an RCMP officer in Burns Lake and the same officer, to our knowledge, remains on "the force" which demonstrates that Commissioner Paulson is content that we may have a cold blooded murderer on our national police force. The officer in question should have been charged with murder and the case should have gone to court for trial, instead it was fixed "behind closed doors" and the public and the family of the victim were denied the knowledge of what really happened and a fair trial.
Then there is the whole story of the multiple murders in Vancouverr that took place at the Picton Pig
Farm that is back in the news with the release by accused and convicted killer, Willy Picton, of his book in which he claims he was set up by the RCMP.
According to a reliable source:
The Editors don't have any personal agenda against Mr. Paulson but he has obviously failed on some significant files as head of Canada's national police force and in our opinion it is time for him to step aside and allow someone with the appropriate qualifications to do the job.
