Canadians have become alarmed at the revelations that their RCMP Commissioner may not be independent of the Prime Minister’s Office. Unfortunately, they haven’t come to realize the full scope of the situation. RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki is already under a pending code of conduct investigation for her refusal to open a criminal investigation into the downing of flight PS752 – a flight that was taken down by two missiles and resulted in the loss of 55 Canadian citizens and 30 permanent residents.
There was much controversy and disagreements between the Federal Progressive Conservative Party under Peter Mackay and the Reform Party under Stephen Harper, however they did realize that they would never be able to win a general election without uniting.
After many machinations and negotiations, the new Conservative Party of Canada was formed but not until Progressive Conservative leader, Peter MacKay secured a weighted ballot system for voting within the party.
