RCMP commissioner Bob Paulson has a bag just full of cash. He's hoping it's enough to make a huge problem just go away.
Paulson has $100-million tax dollars to settle harassment and sexual abuse claims by between 500 and 1,000 female members of the force. Oh yeah, Paulson upped the ante when he got teary and apologized at a press conference, praising the female officers for their bravery and courage.
So, what's missing? Oh yeah, that huge wicker basket full of heads of those who harassed and abused those female members and the top brass who, for so long, looked the other way until their hands were forced.
Then again this is Paulson, the commish who signed off on the 31-count indictment in the "immaculate bribe" case against Mike Duffy only to see each count, all 31, shot down in flames by the trial judge who pointed out the obvious - the RCMP not only didn't get their man, Duffy, but avoided getting the real culprits.
So Commander Cash & Tears appears intent on soldiering on. As for the rest of us, we have another demonstration that there's no limit on the amount of dirt that can be swept underneath the RCMP's carpet.
