Commissioner Bob Paulson said he would accept all of the recommendation from complaints commissioner.” – Jane Hall



Power & Politics had an MP panel of Candice Bergen, Randall Garrison and Francis Scarpaleggia to discuss RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson’s appearance before a Commons committee to discuss issues facing the Force. Bergen spoke of the need to change the culture in the RCMP before changing the composition, with a target of 30 per cent women by 2025, and the need to pass Bill C-42 to establish the new framework. Garrison said there is a crisis of confidence for women in the RCMP, and the government needs to settle and reconcile with the 300 women litigating against the Force for sexual harassment. Scarpaleggia said the Liberals are supporting C-42, and he was pleased to hear Paulson said he would accept all of the recommendation from complaints commissioner. Check out the associated video

    My quote about Commissioner Bob Paulson was taken from his
    testimony at the Status of Women Committee hearings. I am very sure of the
    source. Jane
