新斯科舍省槍擊案。特魯多否認插手警方調查

"極其重要的是要強調,只有加拿大皇家騎警,只有警察才能決定什麼和何時發布信息。"

"專員說,她曾向公共安全部長和總理辦公室承諾,加拿大皇家騎警將發布這些信息,"他寫道,關於Lucki女士對加拿大皇家騎警在新斯科舍省開展的新聞發布會的反應。

"然後專員說,我們不明白這與懸而未決的槍支管制立法有關,該立法將使警官和公眾更加安全。"

坎貝爾先生在筆記中回憶說,專員對他的新聞發布會沒有披露更多關於暴亂中使用的武器類型的細節感到憤怒。

根據調查筆記,新斯科舍省皇家騎警的通訊小組決定不公布有關槍支的信息,因為他們擔心這將危及加拿大和美國執法部門對嫌疑人獲得槍支的調查。

據前加拿大皇家騎警通訊主任Lia Scanlan稱,Lucki女士被要求在槍擊事件發生後不要立即接受媒體採訪,但她還是接受了採訪,在此過程中提供了不準確的信息。

"專員發布了一個我們(加拿大皇家騎警通訊部)甚至沒有的屍體數量,"斯坎蘭女士告訴公眾調查的一名律師。"她[Lucki女士]出去做了這件事。這都是政治壓力。這百分之百是布萊爾部長和總理的意思。而我們的專員卻不推辭。"

在周二發表的一份聲明中,Lucki女士說,在大規模槍擊事件這樣的高調事件中,聯邦政府和警方之間的信息共享是正常的,但她承認她的做法 "應該更加敏感"。


"It is extremely important to highlight that it is only the RCMP, it is only police that determine what and when to release information."

"The Commissioner said she had promised the minister of public safety and the Prime Minister's Office that the RCMP would release this information," he wrote, about Ms Lucki's reaction to press briefings carried out by the RCMP in Nova Scotia.

"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."

Mr Campbell recalled in the notes how the commissioner had been angry that his press conference did not disclose more details about the types of weapons used during the rampage.

The Nova Scotia RCMP communications team had decided not to release information about the firearms out of concern it would jeopardise the investigation - being carried out by Canadian and US law enforcement - into the suspect's access to the guns, according to notes from the inquiry.

According to former RCMP communications director Lia Scanlan, Ms Lucki was asked not to give media interviews in the immediate aftermath of the shooting but did so anyway, giving inaccurate information in the process.

"The commissioner releases a body count that we (RCMP communications) don't even have," Ms Scanlan told a lawyer for the public inquiry. "She [Ms Lucki] went out and did that. It was all political pressure. That is 100% Minister Blair and the Prime Minister. And we have a Commissioner that does not push back."

In a statement released on Tuesday, Ms Lucki said information sharing between the federal government and police is normal during a high-profile event such as a mass shooting, but acknowledged she "should have been more sensitive" in her approach.
