Re: An ‘impossible’ task?; Ottawa’s expectations for the next top agent high – maybe too high, July 26

To the surprise of none but Eli El-Chantiry and the Ottawa Police Services Board, the qualifications demanded by residents for the new chief are impossible for one human being to embody. Even the company contracted to conduct the investigation admitted that this person may not exist.

Engaging Hefid Solutions is an insult to the board members whose duty it is to hire a chief, so we certainly didn’t have to spend untold thousands of tax dollars to outsource this hiring to a third party. spend.

Once the floodgates of the investigation were open to the public, each special interest group demanded that their needs be met. Now that this is known to be impossible, the OPSB will feel their wrath no matter who gets hired, and the new chief will be the center of their bull’s-eye. What a shame.

You already have a great candidate for acting chief Steve Bell. Hire this man and let’s get on with the Ottawa policing. Enough doubting and doubting, give the badge to Bell.

WHO TO BELIEVE?

While I’ve seen and read about RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki and Bill Blair testifying to what has or hasn’t been said about the “inappropriate” political pressure related to the NS shooting, I wonder what oath they took. To be honest, I don’t believe either one because it seems like what the King of Scandal (Trudeau) wants, the King of Scandal gets. How many times has she given him a pass when an investigation into his actions was clearly needed?

Maybe in the future those government lackeys called to testify before committees can be hooked up to lie detectors so we can see if we get the truth out of them because right now I think Canadians are being fed a load of you -know-what.

POLITICAL TWO STEPS

As for Andrea Horwath running for mayor of Hamilton, is this a trend for MPPs in Ontario? Andrea Horwath was an Ontario MPP, a new Democrat who plans to run for mayor of her hometown of Hamilton. Patrick Brown, in a complicated career, was a conservative Ontario MPP who became mayor of Brampton and is now running to keep that job. Jim Watson was an Ontario Liberal MPP after serving as mayor of Ottawa and then returned to be our own mayor until 2022.

Representatives from all three major political parties have done this provincial to municipal two-step plan. Is it a new wrinkle in political retirement planning to increase retirement benefits or just another way to torture taxpayers?

Oh, sorry, they are “contributing”. But to whom?

IF HARPER WON ALONE

If Stephen Harper had been re-elected, we wouldn’t be in this mess with the fool on the hill with the stupid haircut. This country would be a lot better with an economist who really thought about monetary policy. Fire up Trudeau – now. Save our country. Yes, yes, wait for the elections. No, get rid of him – now.
