Paul Kennedy, chair of the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, addresses one of the issues with certain statements made by certain persons regarding certain events:
I do not accept the version of events as presented by the four responding RCMP members. The statements provided by the members are sparse in terms of detail of the events and the thought processes of the members as events unfolded. When tracked against the witness video, the recollections of the members fall short of a credible statement of the events as they actually unfolded. The fact that the members met together prior to providing statements causes me to further question their versions of events.
A former Warrant Officer of my acquaintance addresses certain other statements made by a certain other person regarding certain other events, in words that are nonetheless apropos:
I gotta tell ya, I’m gonna call ya a fuckin’ liar.
