According to a report by Jennifer Henderson, RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki allegedly pressured her subordinates into jeopardizing the Nova Scotia massacre investigation to support Justin Trudeau’s incoming gun grab.
An RCMP officer’s notes allege that RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki “promised” the Prime Minister’s Office and Public Safety Minister that the weapons used in the 2020 Nova Scotia mass shooting would be released early, despite the risks that posed to the integrity of the murder investigations, and that it would be used to support future gun control legislation.
Gabriel Wortman massacred 22 people in Nova Scotia using four illegally obtained guns, including two handguns in 2020.
According to the Mass Casualty Commission documents, “At the meeting [following a news conference detailing the shooting], Commr. Lucki expressed disappointment in the press briefings carried out by the Nova Scotia RCMP.”
This was confirmed and elaborated on in the handwritten notes of RCMP Support Services Officer Darren Campbell:
“The Commissioner was obviously upset. She did not raise her voice, but her choice of words was indicative of her overall dissatisfaction with our work. The Commissioner accused us (me) of disrespecting her by not following her instructions… The Commissioner said she told Comms to tell us at H Division to include specific info about the firearms used by [the killer]….However, I said we couldn’t because to do so would jeopardize ongoing efforts to advance the U.S. side of the case as well as the Canadian components of the investigation.”
He continues, writing that she had allegedly pressured the RCMP and “promised” Public Safety Minister and the Prime Minister’s Office that the RCMP would release the information, adding that it would be tied to future gun control legislation.
As per Campbell’s notes:
“The Commissioner said she had promised the Minister of Public Safety and the Prime Minister’s Office that the RCMP (we) would release this information. I tried to explain… we could not release this information at this time. The Commissioner then said that we didn’t understand, that this was tied to pending gun control legislation that would make officers and the public safer.” [Emphasis added]
Following the shooting, Trudeau wasted no time pursuing gun control legislation doing so just weeks later through an order in council. This would be realized in May 2022 after passing Canada’s national handgun freeze, which will prevent the purchase of all new handguns in the future (a de facto ban).
“We’re introducing legislation to implement a national freeze on handgun ownership,” Trudeau said.
“What this means is it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer, or import handguns anywhere in Canada. In other words, we’re capping the market for handguns.”
“… And we will require the permanent altercation of long-gun magazines so they can never hold more than five rounds.”
