Liberals made it easier for sex predators & other unsavoury LPC members to beat system says RCMP

RCMP raising concerns about Liberals’ changes to criminal background checks

The RCMP is taking issue with changes the Liberal government made to criminal background checks and the pardons system, pointing to cases of people with “disturbing” records applying to work with vulnerable individuals, CBC News has learned.

The force’s concerns were summarized in a briefing note prepared by public safety staff to update Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale on the changes to the system.

The issue is how criminal background checks conducted by police for people applying to work with individuals considered “vulnerable” — children and the elderly, for example — are handled in cases where a person has received a record suspension, commonly known as a pardon.
