I thought maybe I was depending a little too much on the Globe, so I found this in Macleans, and sure enough, a slightly different and more detailed take on it: 29/03/07, Kady O'Malley & Chris Selley, RCMP scandal deepens, (Source).

"While trying to expose these wrongdoings, which were both criminal and code-of-conduct violations, I had face-to-face meetings and complaints up to and including Commissioner Zaccardelli. I was met with inaction, delays, roadblocks, obstruction and lies. The person who orchestrated most of this coverup was Commissioner Zaccardelli."
Ron Lewis, retired RCMP staff sergeant.
"The cover-up of wrongdoing and the protection of those favoured by senior management has become a common thread running through the members' complaints. In fact, RCMP management's practice of transferring officers facing legitimate complaints by regular members is now being likened to the conduct of the Catholic Church in protecting its priests accused of misconduct."

That Bernard Shapiro should pick this week to walk away says it all for me. There is very little moral ground anywhere near these governments and their agencies. Rotten nearly to the core. Ethics? Morality? In Ottawa? Not! And there is a time for good people to walk away from it without disgrace. Difficult for him no doubt.
Maybe the winds of Climate Change will blow them all clean; and if not clean, then at least away.
