PM Justin Trudeau addressed the media today for the first time since the explosive report alleging interference in the NS mass shooting police investigation to advance his gun-grab agenda.

“We did not put any undue influence or pressure. It is extremely important to highlight that it is only, umm, it is only the RCMP—it is only police—ah that determine what & when to release information.”

“…The Commissioner’s statement, the Minister’s statement were very clear on that. Yes, I still very much have support in Commissioner Lucki,” he said.

Trudeau continued, his tone now defensive:

“I will highlight, however, that when the worst mass shooting in Canada’s history happened, we had a lot of questions. Canadians had a lot of questions. And I got regular briefings on what we knew, what we didn’t know, uhh, and, those answers continue to come out, even as the public inquiry is ongoing, so families can actually learn, ah, what happened, and we will continue to take responsible action.” [Emphasis added]

In other words, Trudeau denies coercion but admits he talked with RCMP Commissioner Lucki several times while the investigation was still active.

Sound familiar?

Lucki has also denied the allegation against her.

The report from the Halifax Examiner includes the handwritten letter of an RCMP officer that alleges that Lucki “promised” Trudeau’s 2020 Public Safety Minister and the Prime Minister’s Office that the RCMP would release information about the guns used by the shooter, adding that it would be tied to future gun control legislation.

As per RCMP Support Services Officer Darren Campbell’s handwritten notes that were reported: “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]

The Liberals have voted against Trudeau appearing before a committee to testify on this alleged interference.
