RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki says she can’t remember whether she used the word “promise” when speaking of an alleged promise made to Safety Minister Bill Blair to release information on guns used in the NS mass shooting.

Today, the Standing Committee on Public Safety questioned both Lucki and Safety Minister Blair in the House of Commons about the allegations of political interference during the active Nova Scotia investigation.

“So Darren Campbell’s account of the meeting that happened … where he wrote in his notes that you had made a promise to Minister Blair that that information of the weapons would be released – he was accurate…?” asked MP Raquel Dancho.

Lucki responded by saying that the promise wasn’t really a promise.

“But you used the word ‘promise,’ correct?” Dancho pressed.

“I don’t recollect that. I may have. I’m not going to question Superintendent Campbell’s recollection. But it was in the context of confirming the information that was asked of me,” Lucki responded.

Lucki argued that she “confirmed” to Blair that information on the weapons used would be released, which may have been miscommunicated to officers as a ‘promise.’

However, Lucki denied being directed to release information on the guns used in the mass shooting, as well as allegations that the information would be used to advance future gun control legislation.

“Specifically, I was not directed to publicly release information about weapons used by the perpetrator to help advance pending gun control legislation,” Lucki said.
