Status Quo Not an Option for RCMP in Truro

The Information Commissioner has launched an investigation into the RCMP’s handling of an Access to Information Request made by Bill Casey.

According to the Office of the Information Commissioner, the RCMP has been deemed to have refused Casey access to a 2004 report, as it has been almost 100 days since his request was filed.

The 2004 report concerns the decision to locate a Operational Communications Centre in Truro. Now the RCMP is studying the possibility of moving the centre to its “palatial” headquarters in Halifax.

Casey says he was told a new report being prepared for Assistant Commissioner Brian Brennan, Commanding Officer of Nova Scotia “H” Division, on the Truro facility should be done in early March, and he hopes to receive a copy of that report, too. So far, Assistant Commissioner Brennan has not responded to the October 31st letter.
