RCMP shouldn’t deal with “non-scandal”

Dear Editor,

In response to Mr. Russ Horner’s quite legitimate question as to where the RCMP is on SNC Lavalin, I think I might be able to help him.
The RCMP is very busy enforcing laws, preventing and solving crime and, generally, trying to make Canada a safe place for all of us.
Where it is not is in the position of acting as an arm of the Conservative Party to facilitate its opportunism and false outrage over this non-scandal.

Much as Doug Ford would like to make the OPP into that kind of body, it does not work in Canada where law enforcement serves the people, not demagogues.
I hope this puts Mr. Horner’s mind at ease.

John Peate
