In Committee from the Senate of Canada - National Defence - May 26, 2014

Former defence ministers David Pratt and Bill Graham testify as part of the committee’s ongoing study of missile defence. The two former Liberal ministers both tell senators that Canada should participate in the United States’ ballistic missile defence program. In 2005, Paul Martin’s Liberal government rejected calls to join the program. Pratt and Graham provide some historical and political context in which the decision was made.
The committee then returns to its review of the RCMP. Senators hear from Ian McPhail, interim chair of the Commission for Public Complaints Against the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Richard Evans, the Commission’s senior director of operations, Staff Sergeant Abe Townsend and Superintendent Doug Anthony, national executives from the RCMP Staff Relations Representative Program, Gaëtan Delisle, president of the Association des membres de la police montée du Québec, John White, president of the Mounted Police Association of Ontario, and Rae Banwarie, president of the Mounted Police Professional Association of Canada.
