I wonder what triggered this turn around by Blair from this:

Quote:
The panel won’t be able to subpoena witnesses to testify under oath. Its recommendations won’t be binding. All documents they use to arrive at their findings will be kept confidential. Testimonies from victims’ family members will not be made public.

to this:

Quote:
Blair says the inquiry will be conducted under the authority of the federal Inquiries Act, with powers to summon witnesses and require them to provide evidence and produce documents.

The three people who had agreed to serve on the review panel announced last week will remain as inquiry commissioners: Michael MacDonald, a former chief justice of Nova Scotia, Anne McLellan, a former federal Liberal cabinet minister, and Leanne Fitch, the former chief of police in Fredericton.


The only issues I have with this inquiry is that, once again the police are investigating the police which should never happen because you stand a very good chance of getting a completely biased opinion on the actions of the police. Well that and it's a former Liberal leading the inquiry.

Stacked deck to ensure a result?

Anything Blair is involved in is always a total fuck up. The "guy" should be put out to pasture.

Why is this inquiry happening? Public pressure and the great investigative reporting of the Halifax Examiner. None of this would have happened if not for the media coalition which includes the Examiner. If you have a few extra dollars do subscribe to the Examiner or drop them a few dollars in recognition of the great work they are doing on this file and on other files. Documents were un-redacted after the media coalition went to Court over this. Otherwise we'd all still be in the dark. As we are on so many other issues.

This looks to be the blessing of a minority government. There were cracks in the line and they didn't have to votes to shut it down. Instead of looking like they were being run out of town they decided to lead the parade.

Inquiries have a mind of their own. Facts will probably emerge that won’t be convenient to many parties. Once again we get a glimpse of what the world will look like without local newspapers when we’re all watching the Kardashians and cat videos full-time.

Here's a good point for the "inquiry" to start from because, alot of the leg work has already been done, had anyone in gov't been listening.

But my guess is that this "inquiry" will find a totally different conclusion regarding the actions of the RCMP in this debacle.

Another good article....

There’s something satisfying in watching a house of cards collapse. It’s reassuring to be reminded that there is, in fact, a level of absurdity that is unsustainable from people who depend on votes for their positions. And so, with due respect to the Kielburger brothers and their marathon testimony to the Commons Finance Committee on Tuesday, by far the day’s most heartening spectacle was the governments of Nova Scotia and Canada finally closing a show that had run too long, the Refusal To Hold A Public Inquiry.
“We’ve listened to Nova Scotians,” federal Public Safety Minister Bill Blair wrote on Twitter, where this government does all its best work. Well, yes, I suppose listening to Nova Scotians was an option. It seems to have occurred to the minister a bit late.
