In Committee from the Senate of Canada - National Defence - May 6, 2013 - Part 1

National Defence

Senators hear from three panels made up of government officials and RCMP members as it continues its study of legislation (C-42) to increase accountability at the national police force.

Treasury Board of Canada officials Dennis Duggan and Kim Gowing and RCMP Superintendent Michael O'Rielly respond to technical questions during the first panel.

Mounted Police Professional Association of Canada representatives Rae Banwarie and Lloyd Pinsent, along with Gaëtan Delisle with the Association des membres de la police montée du Québec Inc., then express their grave concerns with the bill in its current form.

Staff Sergeants Abe Townsend and Mike Casault, who are both with the RCMP Staff Relations Representative Program but are appearing as individuals, also outline their concerns in the last panel of the meeting.

UPDATE: Bill C-42 received royal assent on June 19.
