Re: the Oct. 8 letter from Kamloops lawyer Joe Killoran (‘Head of Kamloops RCMP ‘baselessly attacking Crown counsel and judges’) in which he criticizes Kamloops RCMP Supt. Syd Lecky for comments he made about the judicial system.
Don’t attack our judiciary?
I find it shameful that anyone, let alone a lawyer, would tell another Canadian not to speak out on a subject, especially one they probably know more about from first-hand experience.
Also, why would I look to the U.S. when I believe Canada’s problem is big enough? Let’s not deflect to somewhere else, but own up that we have a huge problem of our own.
As for Lecky saying what he said “on the public’s dime,” I hope he said it because he is on the public dime.
I would hope, as a lawyer, Killoran would defend all Canadians’ right to voice their opinions.
With regards to Killoran’s opinion that the RCMP is on the wrong side, I think he demonstrates his lack of knowledge about what the national police force does.
Parliament makes the laws and the police attempt to enforce them. If anyone is being robbed, I recommend they call the police first, not a lawyer.
I hope Lecky does run for office some day because Canada needs politicians who are not afraid to speak out for true Canadian values.
