RCMP forced to sideline 300 criminal cases thanks to absurd immigration policy

Counter-terrorism Multiculturalism work has ‘sidetracked’ 300 RCMP criminal probes

“We have over 600 officers reassigned to counter-terrorism, so that brings us up to 870 people [working on it],” he said.

“It’s a question of priority setting, right now we’re putting the priority on counter-terrorism … it’s very labour intensive.

“So then the question is, at what cost? And the cost is these other [investigations] – I think we’ve sidelined about 321 significant criminal investigations outside counter-terrorism. That’s going to have an effect after time.”

He also said the RCMP’s watchlist is growing, with people in Alberta, Ontario and Quebec who either want to go abroad for reasons that concern police, or have gone and come back.

    It’s been said many times, but the easiest way to handle this is the simplest and cheapest as well! “So you want to go to Syria/Somalia or other Islamic hell-hole to fight the infidel and their decadent Western ways? Well I’m from the Government and I’m here to help. Here’s your plane ticket, I just need you to sign this document renouncing Canadian Citizenship. I can wait while you pack and we’ve got a limo outside now to take you to the airport.” Easy-peasy!

      you are so right.
      I simply don’t understand it. These people do not want to be here, they are enemies of Canada so why should we prevent them from leaving Canada. Why we are spending tax payers money to cuddle them, to pay people to monitor them, to support them in jail (maintaining jails also costs money). These money should be put to other, better uses.
      It is so strange.

      And it’s going to be said time and time again that simplistic answers are simple-minded. You don’t want a lot of terrorists wandering about. They are costly to catch, they don’t millions of dollars of damage and destroy innocent life and infrastructure. You’re nuts.

      • Sharkibark

        If they’re not wandering about in Canada, they can’t do any damage here.

        It IS simple.

        There are only two choices – kill them, or deny them entry.

        Pick one.

        I am OK with both.

    • Exactly.

    Legalize Ganja, and free up another 10,000 cops…

    • That’s long overdue.

    • Gary

      To do what if they are smoking dope and high while on the job just as the Fire Fighter and Surgeon would be and Pilots if it was legal like cigarettes. Good luck when it’s your daughter at Sick Kids getting brain surgery and the Doctor just smoke pot outside because it calms them down .

        If all your “ifs” and “buts” were candy and nuts…what if, what if, what if..well, they ain’t. Must be hard getting out of bed in the morning, living in fear…

        • Gary

          So only you have a job that is so trivial you’re OK with smoking pot on the job , but all those other people can’t do it because you might get harmed.

          wow , and they say that pot is harmless.

    160,000 Muslims in Canada agree with violent jihad. Of those a few hundred are mentally ready to act with the right sort of leadership and encouragement. When they decide to engage, can Canada afford the cost of having Muslims. Islam’s texts clearly teach military aggression. Muslims who do not conduct jihad are rejected by Allah.

    • Our government must be held to account for the insane decision to allow mass immigration by adherents of a cult who openly advertise their antipathy to our society and values.

      It was a criminal decision.

      That’s where we in the west are making a terrible mistake when we try to differentiate between ‘moderate’ & ‘extremist’ muslims, it’s not only 160,000 muslim terrorists. As long as they call themselves ‘muslim’ it’s their religious obligation to wage violent jihad against Non-mohammedans until they are subjugated. Polls can be mislead easily to make us believe; ‘it’s only a tiny minority’ and mohammedans are known to use ‘taqiyya’ (another religious obligation for mohammedans to further their agenda) when dealing with infidels. Some are active participants while others are passive in implementing their agenda but all working on one absolute agenda: absolute destruction of Non-mohammedan people, culture, religion.

    Maybe they’ll stop going after kids with pot and gun owners.

  • Gary

    The Lawyer and SCOC Judges will get us killed one day because they turned the RCMP into Keystone Kopps that leave the terrorist alone and go after the person that tried to scale a building .

    • MRHapla

      cue the piano music,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  • WalterBannon

    Why are these people allowed to come back after going on Jihad. This is where I expect the govt to do whatever is needed, including having some nebulous agency assassinate these individuals.

  • Bataviawillem

    870 people working on counter-terrorism, do the math, that is close to a 100 million a year.

    i wonder how many of those 300 criminal probes are of ‘new’ canadians? …just wonderin’
