For some time, I have watched as the once proud and unassailable image of the RCMP @rcmpgrcpolice has steadily eroded. It grieves my heart.

Respectfully, @CommrRCMPGRC the buck stops at your desk.

I will speak directly and bluntly in this Thread. You deserve nothing less.
Under your leadership there's has been an undeniable hemorrhage of public trust and support.

What has become of Sir Robert Peel's Nine Principles of Policing?(LINK below)

The bleeding must be stopped and a process of restoration and healing begin.
Many actions will be needed in the coming months; BUT ONLY two (2) MUST occur immediately and without delay:

1. 🚨 STATEMENT - A strongly-worded and unequivocal statement reasserting the once sacrosanct independence of #RCMP from (any perception of) political interference.
☛ Of course, Minister @BillBlair will likely experience something akin to apoplexy and view this statement as insubordination (to put it mildly). No matter, though. To be clear, I am not advocating an 'ambush by press conference'.
Out of deference to Office of the Minister, he should be provided with advance copy and given 24 hours notice. Your statement will proceed, regardless. By strongly and unflinchingly reaffirming the independence of the RCMP, you will also be fortifying its unique place in the
Canadian judicial system.

Of course, to further underscore the seriousness of the situation and your sincerity:

2. 🚨 RESIGNATION - The "buck stops here" is NOT a meaningless phrase or cute bromide. Commissioner LUCKI, you bear ultimate responsibility for not only your
decisions and their consequences, but also for the continuing legacy of the RCMP. CDNs 🇨🇦 are now perceiving in such compelling numbers that your leadership has failed. By the act of your resignation, you will reclaim not only the integrity of the Office of Commissioner for
those who follow, but you will also be giving Canadians an opportunity to reflect upon your exit and the larger meaning it bequests, and to reconsider their judgement of your record.

Respectfully Submitted,
Signed Former @rcmpgrcpolice #RCMP
