Sun’s Gunter exposes CBC story on High River RCMP gun-grab to be a lie

Unfortunately for CBC reporter Alison Crawford, Sun News’ Lorne Gunter got a hold of the same documents she did to write her false version (see here) of what happened in the aftermath of the flood in High River Alberta.

Gunter:

The destruction Mounties inflicted on High River is unprecedented, yet the CBC insisted officers were engaged solely in “basic police work.”

The only problem the CBC could see: Federal Tory cabinet ministers were putting “political pressure” on the national police force to give back whatever guns they had taken as quickly as possible.

But a deeper examination of the documents, obtained via access to information, reveals that Mounties weren’t just acting as compassionate rescuers and heroes. (see here)

I’ve asked Crawford if she is going to respond to Gunter’s assertion that her story was misleading at best:

    Sadly all the taxpayers will pay for the damages done by the uniformed break and enter gum shoes, they’ll get a slap on the wrist for show.

    I doubt they’ll even get a slap on the wrist. Good old Jonathan Denis the Menace says that he was even at the RCMP headquarters in High River on the day of the floods, yet denies he gave any orders. Yeah right. Then again, Redford was found lying about her role in hiring her ex-husband’s law firm for the tobacco law suit and yet she was exhonerated from any wrong doing (not even a slap on the wrist) by the ‘independant’ ethics commissioner.

    It’s definitely time for a change here in AB!
