Lucki, Blair tell Commons committee they didn't meddle in N.S. shooting probe

  Lucki, Blair tell Commons committee they didn't meddle in N.S. shooting probe Emergency Preparedness Minister Bill Blair and RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki told a House of Commons committee Monday that they did not interfere in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police investigation into the 2020 mass shooting in Nova Scotia."Let me begin, and let me be clear. I did not interfere in the investigation around this tragedy," Lucki told members of the House of Commons public safety and national security committee.

FREDERICTON — The RCMP is seeking the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by a doctor who says he faced a barrage of racist abuse after he was accused of breaking COVID-19 rules in New Brunswick.

In a motion filed with the Court of Queen's Bench in Moncton, N.B., on July 22, the force seeks to strike out the statement of claim filed by Dr. Jean Robert Ngola on the grounds it "does not disclose a reasonable cause of action."

In late June, the Province of New Brunswick also sought to have the suit dismissed for failing to make a reasonable case against the province.

The province's motion said the suit's 61-page statement of claim is repetitive, unnecessarily complicated and "an abuse of the process of the court."

Top N.S. Mountie wanted an officer dismissed for sexual misconduct — but Commissioner Lucki disagreed

  Top N.S. Mountie wanted an officer dismissed for sexual misconduct — but Commissioner Lucki disagreed A Nova Scotia RCMP constable who violated the force's code of conduct after fondling co-workers will keep his job — even though the top Mountie in the province at the time wanted him dismissed for sexual assault. The case pits the wishes of the local division against Commissioner Brenda Lucki, who — while promising publicly that sexual assault would not be tolerated under her watch — agreed to let the member keep his job. In 2018, Const. Devin Pulsifer joined other Mounties for a night out at a local pub in Port Williams, N.S., capping off a day of tactical training.

Ngola's lawyer, Joel Etienne, said in an email today he is in the process of finalizing a response to the motions from the province and RCMP, and his client is steadfast in his pursuit for justice.

Ngola's suit names the province, the RCMP and Facebook's owner, Meta, as defendants.

He was working as a family doctor in Campbellton, N.B., in May 2020 when he was accused of violating the province's Emergency Measures Act amid a growing COVID-19 outbreak.

The Crown later withdrew the charge.

His suit alleges, among other things, that Premier Blaine Higgs should have known the doctor would face abuse when the premier referred to an "irresponsible"' health-care worker during a news conference in 2020 and said the matter was being handled by the RCMP.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published July 29, 2022.
