Found on the RCMP website:
“In 2005, RCMP created the Division Diversity Liaison Officer. This member acts as a liaison/ facilitator between the different ethnic groups and the operational personnel across the province. In addition, this position provides the organization with the opportunity to further one of the key commitments to our communities: becoming more culturally sensitive.”
My antenna went up this past summer when after the arrest of 4 people in a terrorist plot, the CBC reported that:
“The chair of the RCMP Cultural Diversity Committee said in light of the arrests, police wanted to see if the community had any concerns.
“It’s just to open the lines of communication within the communities, to dispel any rumours,” said Cpl. Wayne Russett, the RCMP’s aboriginal and ethnic liaison officer in Ottawa.”
Today, Brian Lilley is reporting that:
“The RCMP’s “ethnic liaison office” was promoting the event to members of the national force and one of the participants is a member of the Mounties’ cultural diversity committee. On Wednesday, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews told the Mounties to have nothing to do with events promoting hatred”
So what was the RCMP doing promoting an event that featured groups that are anti-Semitic and people who are close to Iran’s regime?
Once again it was RCMP member Wayne Russett who signed off on this and why does he still have a job? (see here)
Also: Note it is the Green Party who is organizing this event (see here)
