In this post I will critique the Military Police Complaints Commission Final Report MPCC 2018-030. This will be a somewhat long read, but it will be worth it. I'm not going to critique each and every item in MPCC 2018-030. I'm just going to critique the items that I feel need to be critiqued or … Continue reading My two-cents on MPCC 2018-030
I might have the ear of a news reporter that is willing to look at my matter. This reporter is more interested in some of the results I have recevied from the Department of National Defence in response to my various Access to Information requests.
