Alberta’s Minister of Justice Tyler Shandro torched RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki in an official statement that included a call for her to be fired.

“Alberta has lost confidence in RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki and is calling on Canada’s minister of public safety, Marco Mendicino, to immediately rescind her appointment,” Shandro said.

Shandro said Lucki has failed to manage systemic racism and “risked the integrity of an investigation into a mass shooting.”

“Further, as revealed last week, she failed to inform the federal cabinet of all law enforcement options available prior to the decision to invoke the Emergencies Act,” he added.

The Public Order Emergency Commission (POEC) investigating Trudeau’s use of the Emergencies Act revealed Lucki didn’t communicate crucial information in a meeting she had with Trudeau just one day before he invoked the never-before-used Act.

While testifying at POEC, Lucki gave mostly vague answers and repeatedly said she “didn’t recall” what was asked of her. 

Last week, Lucki told reporters that she’s confident Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will extend her for another five-year term beginning in March. 

But Shandro says she’s not cut out for the job. 

“The commissioner of the RCMP must be held to the highest of standards. So far, Minister Mendicino has stood idly by while commissioner Lucki has failed to meet even the most meager of standards for the past two years,” he said. 

“This is an abrogation of the minister’s core responsibility to Canadians and must be rectified before the RCMP’s reputation as Canada’s federal police service is further damaged.” 

Last week, Conservative MP Raquel Dancho echoed Shandro’s sentiment.

“She does not evoke confidence in her ability to do this job,” Dancho said.

“We need first and foremost an RCMP commissioner that has the confidence to effectively do her job and I don’t feel she has done that.”
