Just another posting. Nothing too serious. The MPCC investigation into my complaint against the CFNIS is still ongoing. Unlike last time around, I was able to file an Access to Information request prior to making my final submission to the MPCC. What this means is that unlike my previous complaint to the MPCC, I have … Continue reading Just another posting
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I think I know how the Provost Marshal and the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service (CFNIS) intend to play the game this time around. I gained that insight with a question the registrar of the MPCC recently asked me. The registrar asked me … Continue reading MPCC review part deux.
What could possibly be the reason that the CFNIS has been unable to bring charges against P.S. ? Liability. As I mentioned previously, if P.S. were to be criminally charged he would have to be charged under the Juvenile Delinquents Act (JDA). The JDA didn't really allow for any type of prison sentence for youths … Continue reading Liability.
I can only imagine how terrified the brass within the Canadian Armed Forces were at the prospect of the Canadian public discovering that the military couldn't protect children living on secure military establishments. This was contained within the Department of Justice paperwork from when the DOJ represented the Mininster of National Defence in P.S. vs. … Continue reading How embarrassing it must have been.
I submitted an Freedom of Information request with the Department of National Defence in July of 2018. I was looking for "copies of any reports, memos, letters, emails, or any other documents and communications indicating how many cases of child sexual abuse occurred pre-1998 and were brought to the attention of the CFNIS / MP … Continue reading Unfounded / Founded Not Cleared.
One thing that has struck me as odd is the editing that was applied to a document that formed part of the briefing that was sent to the Alberta Crown, first by Sgt. Hancock in 2011, and then by Sgt. Tenaschuk in 2018. Back in 2011, the CFNIS attempted to contact P.S. though his father. … Continue reading A peculiar thing.
Seeing as how Richard died back in January of 2017, we'll never get to know the truth about his interview with the CFNIS on June 9th 2011. This interview was conducted with Sgt. Cyr of the CFNIS. Yes, the same Sgt. Cyr who claimed that he flew down from Edmonton, AB and met with me … Continue reading Richard Gill vs. Reality
As I've said previously, I honestly don't remember anything about what occured during the visits to the rectory after the "sickly sweet grape juice". I remember the rectal bleeding, but I always attributed that to P.S.. On May 3rd, 2011 CFNIS investigator Sgt. Christian Cyr contacted me. He initially left a message. After checking his … Continue reading Why didn’t I tell the CFNIS about Captain McRae.
Interesting. Both Captain Father Angus McRae and Corporal Donald Joseph Sullivan were involved with the Catholic church. And both were molesting children. And both had their matters dealt with by military courts martial, and both were sentenced by their respective courts martial panels, and both had their sentences drastically cut by the Court Martial Appeal … Continue reading Captain Angus McRae and Corporal Donald Joseph Sullivan
Plea bargains are nothing new in the criminal justice system. The Crown makes deals all of the time. Plea guilty for a lesser charge, avoid the possibility of a substantial prison sentence, and get a shorter sentence, if any. Sometimes plea deals work really good in the case of a defendant. Take Karla Homolka and … Continue reading Military Plea Bargains and other things.
I'll post a copy of the email I received from the Office of the Information Commissioner. SAMPIS does not have searchable fields that would give the age of the victims. This is what DND itself has told the OIC. DND has also told the OIC that records outside of the SAMPIS system cannot be searched. … Continue reading SAMPIS and other musings
Why, after a successful investigation and charges have been laid, did the Ontario Crown decide not proceed with charges against former Canadian Armed Forces parde Brigadier General Roger Bazin.
A problem in the chapel.
So, is the jurisdiction of the CFNIS really set in stone? One has to wonder why the CFNIS weren't involved in this matter.
Trying to define the jurisdiction of the CFNIS and the military police is about as easy as trying to nail jello to the wall. Sadly, this is more to do with the failure of Parliament to close the holes in the National Defence Act than anything else. https://cfbnamao.files.wordpress.com/2019/10/standing-committee-on-national-defence.mp4 In 1987, the Crown of Canada took … Continue reading Jurisdiction of the CFNIS
One of the most signifcant examples of "Conflict of Interest" that I have ever seen is having the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service investigating crimes that could cause the Office of the Minister of National Defence to suffer civil actions. Much as when Mr. P.S. sued Angus McRae in March of 2001, anyone who wants … Continue reading Conflict of interest
If you thought that yesterday's post relating to the 3-year time bar flaw was interesting, you ain't seen anything yet. Legislative Summary LS-311E detailed another interesting flaw that existed in the National Defence Act prior to 1998. The flaw had been temporarily addressed via an administrative order in November of 1997, but nonetheless this flaw … Continue reading The Summary Investigation Flaw
I recently watched a Netflix series called "Unbelievable". This is a must watch program if you're ever interested in just how badly the police themselves can screw up an investigation. The story starts off in August of 2008 when an 18 year old woman named "Marie" makes a report to the Lynnwood Police Department that … Continue reading Unbelievable
