This is a deeply troubling development. I think if one looks carefully at the actions (or inactions) of the RCMP since the now famous, unlawful statement on their part that they were actively investigating Ralph Goodale, it is becoming increasingly clear that the national police force is profoundly corrupted. There should be little question in people's minds that the RCMP is directing itself or is being directed to ignore the CPC's legal transgressions while pursuing everyone else's. Each step in this direction, like the one today, takes it further from the realm of conspiracy theory and into the realm of stunning and dangerous, banana-republic style police corruption. If you aren't troubled, you're not paying attention.
