Government agency runaround: Is THIS how terrorists get away with murder?

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator

As my investigation into the Peterborough plane crash continues, it’s increasingly apparent that no government agency wants to answer any questions.

I shared a video last week detailing my researching the August incident wherein a young Muslim man stole a plane from a Markham airport, and, without training or experience, flew it to Peterborough before crashing it near a mall.

An early investigative report, which I obtained under Access to Information provisions, revealed that the government hadn’t retrieved data from the plane’s on-board GPS. I was told by a representative of the Transportation Safety Board of Canada that this had since changed, but such a change wasn’t included in the ATIP, and no one was prepared to tell me what, if anything, was found.

An investigator with the TSB told me to contact the RCMP.

A media relations corporal with the RCMP sent me a press release from August, which didn’t address the GPS question. When I followed up, she emailed me telling me that I needed to get the information from Transport Canada—the parent department of the TSB—rather than the RCMP.

I followed up with Transport Canada, who told me, again, to speak to the RCMP.

Being a glutton for punishment, I did, indeed, go back to the RCMP with this information—even forwarding the email from the Transport Canada official saying that Canada’s national police agency was responsible for giving me the information—and was told, yet again, that my answer lay with Transport Canada.

When I circled back to the transportation agency, I received no response.

No wonder the terrorists win.

It’s easy to roll one’s eyes at bureaucracy in action, but it becomes less funny when one realizes that these are the people tasked with actually getting to the bottom of what happened during this—and other similar events.

Feeling confident?

We were told by the RCMP that the GPS had sustained too much damage for anything to be retrieved from it. As the owners, we are getting just as much runaround as anyone investigating it. We are glad to hear that someone is still asking questions.

@stephen E…..The bureaucracy is not micro managed by the prime minister.

I have a complaint about how the RCMP collected, used, disclosed, retained and/or disposed of my personal information. What are my options?
Only the Privacy Commissioner of Canada can investigate complaints of this nature. Provide a detailed letter to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner outlining your complaint to the following address:

Isn’t this all part of Baby Doc’s “transparency”? Now if it was’t a Muslim but a white guy, I bet you that the information would have been released within a day or two.

I suggest Andrew, if Ezra approves, you start accusing the Feds of a cover-up. Blaming it on bureaucracy is letting them off the hook. Do your due diligence – as you’ve done – then start hurling allegations. It gets answers!! Next headline . . . .

@andrew Lawton….they are not giving you a deliberate run around …you ARE dealing with the Keystone Cops. Nigel Wright was amazing at cutting through this. He would assign people who were assured they would not be punished for breaking rules or not following procedure as long as they delivered results……anyone who was obstructive got transfered, golden parachuted or promoted to harmlessness. Political appointees who were obstructive got disappointed.

Andrew, hold your breath until you get a straight answer out of either of these bureaucracies, I love the color of blue your face will turn. Have fun trying though

Maybe you should approach Maryam Monsef herself about this. She is an illegal Canadian citizen and Peterborough just happens to be her riding. As an esteemed and illegal cabinet minister, she must know something. But good luck getting the truth. That is not her strong suit.

This is that favorite dance we know so well, called the Government Two-Step. They are extremely proficient at it. Fred Astaire would be envious.

Andrew is certainly getting the run-around from some of the highest Branches of Gov’t. Rather than going to the official opposition party and receiving more run-around, why not go to the Human Rights Commission . Andrew could make the case that he is being treated unfairly. The HRC probably has nothing else to do!

Feeling confident? Ahhhhhh no.

There is waaaaaaaaay too many swamps to drain in this country.
