Conservative Law Enforcement Officers’ Caucus.

FORMER OFFICERS FORM CONSERVATIVE LAW ENFORCEMENT CAUCUS

And here’s another stupid idea from our reigning CONservatives. A group of retired police who have been elected as MP’s in the past election have decided that this country really needs a CONservative law enforcement branch so they struck a committee that is comprised of four retired or on leave officers(including Oxfords’ MP…who has his hands full already shuffling paper around)that will act as a liason between the Prime Minister and the justice minister. (who must not be speaking with the justice minister,,,,hence the need for some old fogeys to send messages back and forth)
This comittee hopes to “influence” the government in its’ law enforcement decisions as they claim “they are in a better position to understand what crime is about” as they worked the front lines in law, and they are the only party that has elected police officers.
Well….
Our local MP was retired for many years before he ran for office. His policing techniques are reminiscent of a kinder more gentler time in policing…(oh I am laughing so hard I think I will pee now)
Four MP’s were picked for the committee…
Shelly Glover from Manitoba,Rob Clarke from Saskatchewan and Dave Mackenzie and Rick Norlock from Ontario.
Dave has come a long way from the last election when the Prime Minister called him and his team in Oxford “terds and idiots“.

    Your (incomplete) quote makes the law enforcement caucus sound like a silly idea. The complete quote paints a quite different picture however. The complete quote from the Winnipeg Free Press reads, “the group will be a liaison between police officers and the prime ministers’ office and the justice minister.” You left out police officers.

    The idea is to create lines of communication from front line police officers to caucus and justice to keep our isolated political class informed of the realities of living outside the fuzzy bubble that surrounds Ottawa.

    Seems like a good idea to me.

    Sounds like a waste of time.

    If they are going to do this then there should be members of this group from the Libs & the NDP so that it is "non-partisan". Fat chance.

    Penlan:

    Setting asidde the ridiculous idea that a sub group of the Conservative caucus should include members from other parties, it’s called the Law Enforcement Caucus because it’s made up of past and present members of law enforcement. Neither the Libs or NDP have any elected members who are law enforcement officers. I’m sure any input from the Libs or NDP would be welcome. Unfortunately they don’t seem to have any members who are qualified to participate.

    A new and highly advanced form of lobbying? Perhaps?

    “Unfortunately they don’t seem to have any members who are qualified to participate.”

    I’m not sure the ruling party has either:)
