Isn’t this interesting? Looks like Big Daddy and Doris are not quite as accountabilicious as they’d like you to think they are. Via the Globe and Mail:
Internal documents from the Canadian Border Services Agency show it was more concerned about protecting its reputation than providing information about a Polish immigrant who died at Vancouver International Airport, last year.
The documents, obtained by CTV News, show significant co-operation between the airport, RCMP and border services officials in controlling the release of details following the Oct. 14, 2007 death of Robert Dziekanski.
“Hopefully things will be quiet on this until tomorrow AM,” reads one document.
“The material has been cleansed too much,” reads another.
The documents show the federal agency and the Vancouver airport authority worked closely with the RCMP to ensure the three had their media messaging synchronized after an agitated Mr. Dziekanski died.
“Worked closely with the RCMP” ... that sounds like, oh what’s the term I’m looking for? Oh, I know — like they were getting their stories straight. Now why would they need to do that if everything was just fine and nobody did anything wrong and Mr. Dziekanski was dealt with in a perfectly appropriate manner? I don’t really need to answer that, do I?
Canada’s New Government™, boys and girls — still putting the “hip” back in “hypocrisy” after more than two years.
