Call to Action #25 - New federal policy
6 years after its release, I am finally digging into the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 calls to action. There are 68 days left in the year and the goal is to read and reflect on at least one call to action daily for the remainder of the year. Thank you for joining me on this journey. May our endeavour together be a catalyst for lasting progress and affect meaningful change in Canada.
Under the Justice category, the 25th Call To Action is:
“25.We call upon the federal government to establish a written policy that reaffirms the independence of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to investigate crimes in which the government has its own interest as a potential or real party in civil litigation.”
Indigenous Watchdog Status Update: Stalled
"Response “reaffirmed” independence of RCMP through a “Mandate letter” and not through any official statute or policy other than reference to “pursuant to section 5 of the “Royal Canadian Mounted Police Act” and an existing protocol “Principals to Implement Legal Advice on the Listing and Inspection of Royal Canadian Mounted Police Documents in Civil Litigation”.
Significant Deletion from Federal Government Response
Deletion of “from the executive branch” in April 8, 2019 government update eliminates the specificity that this C2A asks for."
