Men have vanished on Vancouver Island. What happened to them?
"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Laura palmer is a veteran reporter and broadcaster rate. Now she is the host of island crime which launches season two on the frequency. Podcast network on monday. Hello laura hey jordan. Why don't we start before we get to the general topic violent crime and and how you ended up in this business in the first place who are the gone boys so In in this series. I focus on half a dozen stories. there are more but I'm i'm focusing on these guys. For a few reasons. They are men between the ages of fourteen to fifty who have disappeared in recent years from vancouver island and when i say disappeared i mean. They're just gone. They all have a few things in common. And one of the main things is that they have some measure of disability or trauma in their lives and they all are known to be not if not exactly loners guys who spend a lot of time alone and spend a lot of that time walking or biking along the highway on vancouver island and so while there are a number of other men currently missing on vancouver island. These are the men that i focused on in the series men. Who have those things in common. Why did you tell the stories of those men in particular. So i learned. Crime is something. I started last year and in the first season of violent crime i was telling the story of a young indigenous women who had gone missing from the community of nanaimo in two thousand in two and in my research on her story i joined a number of different groups here on the island of that are focused on crime and missing people and that sort of thing and once i was part of these communities. I noticed number of people asking the question. Why isn't anyone talking about the missing men. Where are the missing men. And this was something. I saw popping up in virtually every group i was part of and so of course i was curious about those stories and when i started digging around i found that sure enough there were these cases out there that had received really very little attention there. Was you know one or two stories that had been written about these cases. But you know with some of these men. There hadn't even been a single story done and some of these guys aren't even Featured on the rcmp's website. So i felt like there hasn't been much attention. Paid and i guess the other thing i would say on. This point is You know i. I was a journalist in vancouver in the late. Nineteen ninety s when women were going missing from vancouver's downtown eastside. And i remember a similar kind of thing happening where people from the downtown eastside community family and friends of these women. Were you know trying to get people to pay attention and what was happening. Was the you know the police the authorities were saying. Look these women. are you know leading lifestyles. That are chaotic. And there's nothing unusual about them being missing being off the grid and so police the public the media were all kind of not

C. M. time the RCMP said the killings appear to be in part very random in nature and that some of the victims appeared to have no relationship with him at all but but they don't know an exact death toll because there were so many crime scenes the RCMP said they didn't know what the final death toll will be it's unclear how many people were injured except at least there were two and the details the the circumstances around workman's death are still incomplete there was that report though that that he was such a shot fox news calling it the deadliest attack of its kind inside that car inside Canada while in history wow mmhm well just just but you know just completely and totally you know bizarre yeah in our area we had a Dallas area rapid transit bus that was that was hijacked and the first thing when that was breaking we were I was thinking well why would someone hi Jack a Dallas area rapid transit rapid transit bus and it turns out that the suspect they said who was shot and killed two officers by the way were wounded and expected to be okay one of Dallas police officer in the other was a or or Dallas area police officer the other a Dallas area rapid transit officer that was wounded the suspect was shot and killed turns out the suspect was also suspected in the slaying of his girlfriend so it seems the the hijacking was a desperation essentially to try and flee one RCMP commissioner said they believe there was an initial motivation that then turned into random that's right we don't know for sure yeah and we're gonna do a lot of work and finding out the motivational lot of background lot of profiling type events analog crime scene processing mmhm said she doesn't believe that terrorism was a factor here in in in this particular shooting at will we'll keep you updated on it and was always our thoughts go out to all of our Canadian friends up there and we know we have a lot of listeners from Canada yeah and we've always appreciated their input to the show and we know it's a it's a it's a time a shocking cannon just lecture with thinking of you mmhm in other news an organized protest group rather than a gather in northern San Diego county on Sunday to demonstrate what they call local government over reach and responding to the cove in nineteen pandemic the protest held about twenty five miles north of San Diego he must in a week after the

recreating it is important for the mental Jimmy recreation I got a response wrong is important for mental as well as physical health the city encourages residents to run or walk within their own neighborhoods but to do so safely with the amounts of the current orders look that's one of the things that really came out this weekend people are saying wait a minute doesn't make any sense to keep people from being outside we understand congregating and everything else but Hey if people are outside odds are they're not going to spread the virus right well and and and again we have to honestly we have to reset this whole thing of people being able to to go out and do things be outdoors first of all for moral purposes if nothing else so that people don't go stir crazy beyond that there's a benefit to it there's a great benefit to and the benefit outweighs what from what we know right now outweighs the risk and that's what you're looking for people need to be need to remain as healthy as possible part of that includes exercise being able to get outside then I you know watching the protests over the weekend we said this a few weeks ago people are going to get it's gonna get beyond stir crazy it's going to be about limiting their behavior the government's not gonna be able to limit their behavior for long well we said there will be because this is something that is in pain national locked down it's always done by governors or mayors or judges depending on you know where you live in the United States and there was going to be over reach and we said expected there was going to be over reach involved here and expect that politics is not going to die we hear this all the time what we need to all get together now all you do is see Nancy Pelosi I'm you know on with Chris Wallace yesterday you knew that wasn't going to be the the you know the the the case for saying that that you know good trump and others initiating and when she was asked about will you you're telling people it was OK to visit the China districts you know China town in in San Francisco you said it was okay well no I was just talking about trying to stop racism because of of the things that were said that that led to the targeting of Asian and that's ridiculous yeah I was a little out right lied by Nancy Pelosi the other thing is when she said I give Donald Trump and apps mmhm well if you talk to the governor of your own state you know we sure were saying the same thing about New York we've done this without any federal cooperation Cuomo has come on said every time they needed help or need to talk to trump or whatever he or pens were there and they came through for them but I mean without cooperation I mean it's just it's about any federal crime operation yeah if if you want to sit there and say okay let's judge trump from an aide to we see you can have a discussion on it yes we can always do that right away it's not over yet so let's be careful it's not great before the testing is done right but it but just sit there and say and after he doesn't cooperate at all with that well that's ridiculous but democratic governors had said how cooperative the federal government and specifically trump has banned cried so I mean the politics being played with that we know said look we said it wasn't going to end we said it was scorched earth a couple of months ago will continue to be scorched earth no matter what happened it would continue to be scorched earth and you know you may sit there and say well politics should be played will of course is played yep every day of course played every day yep and the fact of the matter is is that you know the governors of the two biggest blue states don't want to be governors during a massive massive recession they want to they want people to go back to work they also want people to be safe they have the same interests that the federal government or by the way anybody else in their right mind should have and they don't have to lie can you imagine if if Gavin Newsom and said that then she wants Nancy get away with it Chris Wallace lying about what the press saying the president actually said something about people targeting Asian Americans stopped her right there Chris that's a flat out lie and ask her for the quote when did he say that you have a responsibility to stop the line if she wants to say her great of his of of his performance is an F. that's one thing the flat out lie and say that the president's strides something that encouraged people to go out and target Asian Americans ages fall and a flat out lie stating that she wasn't at all encouraging people to go out right it was simply about racism was another flat out lie and everybody knows it that that's the the the tough thing that they have you know we're trying to convince people may have convinced a significant number of people that trump didn't act in time it's some of the same people that were saying that trump is a racist for banning travel from China and from Europe yes you know it's it's just I it isn't saying that we we allow that kind of behavior and that we have to have these discussions and they're allowed to happen you know it's it's not Chris Wallace didn't have control of his own show on Sunday morning and he should have if you want to get in we do have a line open would love to hear from you eight six six ninety eight right

Understanding 'Gender Impact' in Canadian Construction Work
"Might not say what is a gender lens have to do with building this new highway or this new pipeline or something. Well, there are gender impacts. When you bring construction workers into a rural area, there are social impacts that was last year and Buenos Aires, and you may remember some of the immediate reaction. We don't think that you need to have some kind of gender-based analysis when two thousand people come to create jobs to work to support hotels and restaurants as small businesses and families. It's unbelievable to watch. This prime minister refused to acknowledge that his arrogant and self righteous comments are an insult to tens of thousands of Canadians who work in construction in our communities across the country. Here's what that all comes down to whether or not you support pipelines and dams whether you think Justin Trudeau is a modern progressive example for the rest of us or a fake feminist who doesn't understand the real world. These construction projects which employ thousands of out of area workers for months at a time to have an impact on the communities that host, and yes, some of that is a positive contribution to the economy and local infrastructure, and yes, some of that is negative and when it gets bad it can get really bad. There are a couple of ways that we can measure these impacts one is with numbers, and that's being done. The other is the old fashioned way. You send a reporter he talks to everyone. And he tells us what he found today, we have both of those things. So we're going to try to answer the question. What are the real costs of Canada's worker camps? Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Kyle Edwards is a reporter from mcclain's who spent time at a massive worker camp enforce Saint John and British Columbia. Tell me why you went to fort Saint John. Well, it started in. I think it was August twenty eighteen there was this story out in Manitoba. After kind of this arm's length and agency provincial agency in Manitoba had released. A report they're called the clean environment commission, and they had released a report that had gained a lot of media. Attention, basically detailed allegations of sexual abuse. Dating back to the nineteen sixties at a work camp up in northern town called Gillam, which is just east of a city called Thompson Manitoba, right? And the it was involving several first nations communities one in particular was the FOX like creation, and there were members they kind of detailed these horrible issue. These horrible stories of sexual abuse at the hands of. Manitoba hydro workers one person in particular had said that the RCMP organized gangs back in the nineteen sixties. And so it was this very explosive report. I guess I guess you call it. And it it gained a lot of media attention in in Manitoba last year. And so we were talking about it at McLeans. And we want us to do a story we actually discussed the idea of doing a story on industrial camps last year around the time the report came out, and so that was kind of the time that was kind of when I started thinking about it. And I put in some f allies and started asking people if this was an issue that they're really concerned about and that took me to fourteen John which is where it's a city that is known for having a very large transient population. Which is which basically means there are workers that go there for work. What do we know about what happens these camps, or I guess what's kind of the? The popular stereotype around them. Because the the reports detailing what allegedly happened in Manitoba is not kind of the only one of its kind. Yes. So in thousand seventeen a report from this organization called or this consulting group called the Firelight group. They released a report that basically raised a bunch of warnings about when there's a particular camp near in an area by other communities. There's a increase in issues like sex trafficking in the sex trade. There's an increase RCMP data and the report showed that there was a thirty eight percent increase in reported sexual assaults in Saint James fourteenth, James BC in two thousand and eleven and there were other issues like an increase in S T is in a particular area as well as other concerns regarding rampant drug. Use in alcohol use in in in a lot of these camps. And this is has been really as I kind of looked into it a little bit more. This was something that a lot of people have a lot of scholars and academics. Researchers had they've kind of looked into this issue for many many years. Yeah. And and it just seemed like it was nothing new and a lot of people kind of knew that there were a lot of social impacts to industrial camps. So that's really kind of drove the story. So you went to Ford Saint John to essentially see what the situation was like on the ground, and and what kind of social construct springs up around these camps. Exactly enforcing John. There's a huge strain on. So there they call them. They call it the shadow population. A lot of people that's a term a lot of people use the province of British Columbia is not really sure how many people are going to northeastern BC for work who live. Who live elsewhere who reside permanently? Elsewhere, right, and one of the challenges with that is s- things like health services and social services, the those those sort of things are funded by the province based on the resident population, and without taking into consideration, the thousands and thousands of people that most nearly double the actual population. When I got there. A lot of women spoke about a lot of indigenous woman, I spoke to you spoke spoke a lot about racism and sexual harassment and use and it was kind of alarming. Really? So can you tell me about some of the people you met in fort Saint John and some of the stories you heard so I
How secretive technology could be tracking your phone
"You've been lucky enough to find yourself. Wait. I can't tell you where while the police were investigating. I can't tell you that either using a piece of equipment that some forces may or may not possess. And no, they won't tell you that at a certain time. Then congratulations. You may now exist as a random bunch of numbers in a collection of evidence that the police are storing they won't tell you where until they eventually figure out what to do with it. And they might not tell you what they decide to do with it. Either good news, though, it's only a number not a name and some meta data. But there's no way they can identify you based on that. Right. Jordan Heathrow wings. And this is the big story. And are you being paranoid? If they really are watching. Yes. This is one of those episodes. Kate Allen is the Toronto Star science and technology reporter, what's the latest way. Thority if my city are watching. Well, the police service told us a few days ago that they have purchased a Stig Stingray or an emcee catcher, which is a type of cell phone surveillance technology that sweeps up data on also phones within its range. It's usually used on a criminal suspect. But sweeps up everybody within a trench. Oh, good. How does it work? So we don't really know because police have been extremely not forthcoming about how they work. And in fact, have in trials in cases where these things were used. They've applied to. Not disclose any anything about how they work or even the the manufacturer model of these devices. But roughly they sort of force your cell phone all cell phones, within range of the device to identify themselves to device, so they capture a bunch of different types of data. One of the one of the types of data is MC number which is just like a fifteen digit serial code associate with your sim card, and then a couple other types of you know, like a serial number. So she with the actual piece of equipment that you carry and things like that and cops where are using these things. That's a great question. We don't know the answer to that fully either. Why not well the police have been pretty tight lipped about it. I they would say that they're trying to protect investigative techniques. And so I mean, there's nothing compelling them to tell to reports to the public or to journalists they're using them. And so they it hasn't really come to light except for in a few core cases. And when journalists have done some. Digging. So what happens is that a kiss? We'll get into court and the evidence will be presented. And then you find out like, oh, this is how they gathered that vary. Rarely yes. And where have we found that they are being used the first we knew was that the RCMP own some of these devices and so a couple years ago after some court cases were a little bit of info came too late. The empty set down with some journalists and said, yes, we own ten of these devices we've been using them for more than a decade at that point. So we know the CPA uses them other forces have said that the the RCMP has operated those devices on their behalf. So we we actually put in some freedom of information requests with the Toronto police a few years ago, and it came back to us that the Trump service had used the devices on five separate occasions. And in the cases, where they would tell us you tells the AP had always operated it for them. Okay. But we know there. Being used in a few cities. Yes. Yes. So I can give you a couple of other cities so Calgary. Police service says that they own Stingray. Winnipeg please services they own a singer and Vancouver. Police have said that their law enforcement partners have operated it operated on for them. What kinds of data can this capture? The police are pretty clear that the devices that they owned do not capture private communications. So they're not capturing your text messages or phone calls or emails anything like that. It also is not capturing your name or your telephone number. What it is capturing is an identifier associated with their cellphone. So the main one they're looking for is this I m s I number which is just as I said, it's a it's a number associated with your sim card identifies you to the network as you what do they do with that? How does this help? Actually, this a better question. How does this help in an investigation? We don't know all of the uses thing and all of the times they've used it. So as I said only some cases have come to light. And in the one that I know best which was a major drugs and guns case in Toronto in two thousand fourteen the police use because they're trying to do is figure out. So so, you know, drug dealers and gun runners and people like that often change their cell phones. So the police like them and use them because they can operate this thing at a location where suspect is and gather also gather all of the cell phone data in within range of that location. Public him pro everybody everybody within range of the device, including hopefully suspect, and then they followed us to another location. Do it again. And then you know, let's say to another time and other times they're finding the one number that is comment all of those locations, which they will then assume as the suspects empty number and then they get a warrant to connect. That number to that person's name, and the reason that they are doing this is because I mean, at least in the cases, I'm aware of these are usually big cases that involve wiretapping. So they are trying to make sure they know all of the cell phones and land lines that these their targets are using. So that they are wiretapping all of the numbers of their suspects. What happens to the rest of the data that they get? Well, they're using this machine from I'm assuming some of these are used in crowded public places. Yes, that's a really good question. The RCMP has said that when they capture all of us unique identifiers from all of your cell phones in a given location. They only so there's a person who's operating the device and they only pass on the suspects data to investigators. How do they know which one is the suspect by process of elimination their their funding the one number that's comment already the patients that they track the suspect to. And that's the number that they want. So now with the hundreds and sometimes thousands of other numbers that they capture of innocent bystanders who they're not looking for the have said that they keep that information sort of fire walled off from investigators. They securite in a location that you know, it's it's just away from the rest of the. Nothing bad will ever. Yeah. And they have they have said that they will destroy the the this data after any court cases finished after any appeals periods of finished. This is an interim policy developed by the so it's not a finalized policy. It's also not a law. It's a policies rate. It's something they've decided to do what they what they decided. How did you guys find out then that the Toronto police were using these devices so back in I believe it was twenty fifteen I was working on this topic with some of my colleagues, and we asked the Toronto police service do you own and do you use Stingray? And a spokesperson told us we do not own and do not use one of these devices. Then we put in a series of freedom of information requests with the Toronto police asking essentially for you know, anytime they had use it and a full two years later. We got information back that they had actually used. And it on five separate occasions. Okay. To them. They wouldn't tell us about because they were either before the courts are still under investigation. And the other one's range from like, a Bank robbery was missing persons. When was this big, drugs and guns case? But you know, so therefore was not true that the Trump had never used one of these devices. What was true is that they had always used the RCMP's devices in their investigation. Okay. So that was a year ago. So we reported that they said they never used it. They actually had in five separate occasions and just this past week when I was reading about the topic again, I thought okay? Well, we haven't really asked Toronto police in a little while if they if they own a device or asked him again, and they told me actually they had recently acquired one of these devices for

"Deeper lack at the problems within the RCMP organization. Global news did an investigative report led by Jane Gerster. My name is ginger stir. And I may national features reporter with global news. And I am currently investigating the p. So let's go back to the nineteen eighties. Because it was around that time that we heard about the first big sexual harassment case in the force, right? Yeah. That's when Alice clerk made the decision that she was gonna sue the fourth. Alice Clark is a British Columbia woman. She always wanted to be mounted. She's one of those people kinda grew up thinking I wanna wear the red Serge. And when she was growing up you couldn't be amount. He as a woman, so realistically, it was a totally farfetched remain until all of a sudden they started letting members in and then a couple years after that Alice became a Mountie. And then she basically realized that the force was pretty awful to win. So on the more minor, and she, you know, people would leave plastic breasts center desk, they would make comments her supervisor would call all of her colleagues by name. But then he'd say, hey, Deary. How's it going and sort of pattern the shoulder? You know, people saying, oh, yeah. You are prettier. Oh, you need to go home and have a baby or a woman's places at home, or, you know, get out of here and let a real man take this on. So that's kind of the verbal the verbal issues that she experienced within it also just groove. She was sort of left left hanging in certain in certain cases of she, you know, go out, and, you know, be responding to call or be trying to track down a suspect and she'd radio in for backup. And you know, she sort of details in it's quite heartbreaking. The no one came. You know, when she talks about how you know, sometimes she would she would radio in an for help. And the no one would come and she'd go back and she'd get yelled at for not ready. Doing in for help. And at a certain point, you know, she says the radio operators just stopped telling people that she needed help because they knew nobody would come. And that's you know, that's basically what she describes going on and on. And when she finally when she finally left, she was just heartbroken when she talks about giving in her red Serge, which was the piece of the Mountie the conic Mountie uniform that she just really really adored. When did it really become apparent to the public that the RCMP truly had a culture problem? Depends on who you ask. I mean, if we're looking from a sexual harassment perspective that really started to come out in two thousand eleven with women like Janet merlot, and Catherine Galliford, I don't, you know, I think from a sexual harassment perspective that started to become something that was hard for people to ignore only really in the last five five or so years, and then in terms of you know, broader cultural issues, I think that really came to the fore in two thousand seven with David Brown's investigation into the pension fund scandal because he actually came out and said, you know, our humanity is horribly broken. Coming up later in this episode the ways in which trying to do the right thing when it didn't seem to benefit before publicly. Really wrecked. His career to the extent that has wife says he just couldn't he just couldn't cope anymore, and then he killed himself. You're listening to this is why a national radio show and global news podcast.

Other state, and we're forcing find ways on their own to cope with his infused condition since they did not see an organization that was willing to change. Still courageously tried to make themselves heard by management. Only to find the tonight movement and opportunity or adversely punished within the RCN for their efforts on behalf of every year superbugs or management every I stand before you today solely offered sincere apology, but sexual harassment is just part of the problem. It was exposed the RCMP has a culture of workplace bullying and covering up scandal that ultimately led to the death of sergeant Pierre LeMay Trie his suicide prompted an inquiry that revealed a new level of corruption in the force. It was during the wildfires of two thousand and three in the interior when things really heated up on a personal level between Pierre LeMay Trie, and is immediate supervisor staff sergeant grant learned both were media spokespersons a reporter had complained to the true that she felt learned was sexually harassing her. The major wrote a report the next day. He was relocated to another detachment Sheila maitre testify that a sudden transfer in two thousand and three really bothered. Her husband four years later Lemaigre was called a handle media, and the can't ski affair where he was handed talking points that the next day he realized were inaccurate and insisted to superiors that they be corrected that poor sergeant was told to not tell the truth in order to protect the RCMP this organization, unfortunately has no morals or ethics testifying via Skype was a toy a Montague who was the communication strategist during all of this. She testified he LeMay Tra was ordered to not correct. He was helpless. So distraught said crying, she recalled the matrix sink. You can't hang out like this. And she said, they knowingly did she described it as the biggest institutional betrayal. Enter fifteen years. There's no doubt his suicide was because of this on the bay the Bill Bentley was found not guilty of perjury for his role and Robert Caskey's airport death, peer LeMay, tree was hanging himself in the basement of his home his wife, retired RCMP member with significant disabilities to previous horse riding accident found him she tried using scissors to cut them down. But wasn't strong enough. So you started sawing at the rope. It was so slow and tried to hold them. When the last thread, let go he landed in my arms, his head hit the floor with a thumb is something always remember. She was crying. She said this tetrahedral news. Here's global news. Reporter Jayne Gerster. Yes. That's a pretty it's heartbreaking story as well. Sound like a broken record there? But you know, if you I've been through the letter that he that he wrote applying for veterans affairs pension, you know, south through the testimony of his his widow and kinda gone through as many of the documents in watches, many of the clips as I can. And you know, he by you know, by the accounts of those who worked with him, and by by the letters he wrote, which is such a principle person who really joined the force again like Alice Clark, because it was a lifelong dream, and he wanted to do the right thing, and you wanted to help people, and he talks about, you know, the ways in which trying to do the right thing when it didn't seem to benefit the force publicly. Really wrecked. His career to the extent that has wife says he just couldn't he just couldn't cope anymore and then. Killed himself. And you've had a conversation with a former RCMP member Lawrence Chung, and he also discussed with you a lot of the frustrations that he felt related to the force that drove him away as well. Yeah. So it's really interesting about Lawrence shown to me is you know, he describes himself as not the Mountie that you would ever see very much an under the radar guy who's not walking around and red surge and who's not on your TV. I'm not a high profile Mountie. I wasn't her sexually harassed or anything. I don't have a civil suit or anything like that. I'm not on the news. I was just an operational. Sergeant trying to do my job in the RCMP and holding people accountable for their time in actions. Basically, I was prevented from doing that job. He says he just he learned through the force that kind of one incident, and this is kind of how he describes it can really follow you around that again like doing the the right thing as purely Maitree talks about can really have a negative impact on your career and for him. You know, he went public about allegations. That were brought to him about hot tub with witnesses drinking witnesses and a major kidnapping case is the general public in the tax payers. I really should have concerns because the RCMP is their priority. There is to look after themselves members or their to do as little work as possible and get as much. Overtime as they can. You got members who go shopping on company time during on duty. I've seen this or long-term off-duty sick involved in grievances frivolous, coda conduct's harassment's civil suits class action lawsuits. This is all costing the taxpayers money. And he he's two struggling still even now in it's really apparent from the conversations we've had with with how you're trained in the forest to do the right thing to speak up when you see something bad happening. He you know, he just kinda had his hands up. Like, that's what I did. You know, how am I here? He wants to get twenty five years in he'll to quit twenty one. So we think Lawrence's case is really indicative of some of the internal struggles. And this is happening to me is probably happening to other people across the country as well too. Now, there have been commissions in an attempt to change the force. But how those commissions panned out? Well, they've been very expensive, and they have been long lasting and they've covered a wide variety of issues not all explicitly saying front. You know, what's talk about how the man the CPS run. Although alternately they all touch on on that. I think really how those commissions have gone depends on who you ask some of them have just people have been furious. With kind of the end result. Some have been furious with the process and said it hasn't even gotten into Canada the root of the issues, and I think at the end of the day the underlying concern or the repeating concern for a lot of Mounties that they don't seem to go anywhere. I mean, I I spoke with Janet Merlo who is one of the two women who are part of the kind of the head of the Merlo Davidson hundred million dollars sexual harassment settlement from two thousand sixteen that's still sort of being dealt with you know, and she was so frustrated because you know, she knows so many people who have participated in so many of these commissions enquiries think she was mentioning one of her friends have been almost a dozen and her she herself had spoken before the Senate and spoken before parliament spoken before numerous core. Arts, and she's just kind of sitting here now going, you know, when are they going to do like, we have all these roadmaps from these commissions? They offer up really good road mats and things to consider that that many feel just sort of been left there collecting dust. In two thousand one. There was a ten million dollar. Federal APEC inquiry, then in two thousand six the auditor general's probe into the pension fund scandal that cost two hundred fifty thousand dollars. Also in two thousand six was the O'Connor commission that came with a price tag of fifteen point two million dollars. Then there was the five point three million dollar braid would inquiry the thirty one point nine five million dollar air. India inquiry and the nine point eight million dollar missing women inquiry. The two hundred fourteen thousand dollar Sheila Fraser workplace review came in two thousand seventeen the CRC harassment report in twenty seventeen as well that cost six hundred thousand dollars just to name a few of the inquiry commission reports from the past few years.

"It almost makes me cry. It's such a shame that they've taken such an iconic police force and turned it into this narcissistic harassing bullying abuse of power organization that actually hinders all the good officers on the front lines from being able to do the best of their jobs. Can the RCMP survive an internal culture fraught with problems? I'm Nikki right Meyer. And this is why. The number of sexual harassment allegations being leveled against the RCMP is soaring in west of problems, including frontline members complaining of being over tasked underpaid and under resource recruitment retention issues. And a four spread too thin from small town policing to counter terrorism with an escalating number of female Mounties claiming harassment, discrimination and sexual abuse. And so we are taking steps immediately. This winter to put in place, a new civilian management advisory. The information is contained in an internal Email of pained by global news Donnie over called the two prior lawsuits focused on gender discrimination, and it resulted in a one hundred million dollar settlement in two thousand sixteen. This is new legal action that goes beyond sexism, CENA matter if you man or woman bosses at the RCMP fostered a climate enabling bullying and harassment both the government of Canada and the RCMP are determined together. To maintain a modern healthy safe and truly respectful work environment for all members and employee's every time there was an inquiry. It's yet another nail in the coffin of the same p there's almost need to start over to recognize that this was a police force of its time period. And you know, you can remember it in a museum that poor sergeant was told to not tell the truth in order to protect the RCMP this organization, unfortunately has no morals or ethics. I don't think critical outrage from the public is going to necessarily make a difference. Unfortunately, because they'll ride it out the Disney is Asian of the CMPS always going to to win. Can you believe more than two hundred and twenty million dollars has been spent in the last two decades on trying to mend a culture of dysfunction within the RCMP? Now that covers everything from sexual harassment lawsuits. Two human rights, complaints federal inquiries into nepotism workplace. Bullying just to mention a few places where that money went. Rob Gordon is a professor of criminology at Simon Fraser university. The mount is one single organization say they have a variety of functions encounter is very large organizations. In my view in the view of many others to lodge and their problems. Come from the fact that they are too much to spread out trying to be too many things to many people, and they're not able to accomplish what they should be country, which is a specialty federal policing. As a consequence of that dispositive f- at resources. There's about twenty eight thousand active personnel in the RCMP, they serve in more than one hundred and fifty municipalities six hundred first nations communities three territories and provinces and a force that size and that spread out requires uniformity. Basically have a clear message when you stopped. Conform leaves? No other middle ground. You joining this organization. Right from the very beginning from day one. We will train new to be all CNPF's. And that means that that's what you're gonna be doesn't matter. What you've been before what you intend to be later. You've signed up for the paint. We will create a new human being it's almost robotic. And that creates frustrations for people who go in a more critical suddenly want to be mounted that can make a difference. But when they get in they realized that in fact is a very rigid organization, the tolerates David's, and it will punish in different ways. Those who stray from the straight narrow. Deeper

"Either really dangerous or really interesting and the authorities should know. And maybe I should tell somebody that this is what's happened. So like a like a like a naive person. You know, he he picks up the phone, and he he calls the newspaper and says. Listen, I've had this weird incident. But nobody will talk to him. Nobody was there to talk to him. So when he finally did speak to somebody at the one of the local newspapers here, they obviously the reporter with a with a photographer and that picture that you referred to at the beginning of the show when you talked about the man with the shirt open that was dead in his pajamas lying on his bed. And the photograph was taken the day after this occurred. And here we are saying to ourselves years later, we regret, and we hate, and and, you know, all this media circus in media attention, but unfortunately, dad's notion that he needed to tell somebody something got got us into this hot water in the first place. Chris you've collected the paper trail from multiple angles share with me the story of. Police or law enforcement involvement when they come to talk to him about it. And then the military, well, certainly the Royal Canadian Mounted police where among the first to take an interest in this. He had actually encountered a ours GOP officer what he stumbled out of the Bush. He he was trying to get back to his hotel room. And he, you know, he managed to get out to the road and cabbage RCMP officer, Rhode told the RCMP officers story, and you can just well imagine what the RCMP officers thought of him that here's this fellow with no-shirt on very very busy. He had had vomited repeatedly because of the the the the chemical gas, and he was shaking is is red. So the RCMP officers seal that he was drunk consistently spent much time talking with Mr. Golic himself. But you know, I probably shouldn't get too close to you. Because who knows what the heck I have got from this encounter. So that began the series of investigations, but you know, when he got back to the city RCMP officers of the sued after that, so Royal Canadian Air force officers came by and they also began the investigation later on tonight States Air Force. This was a case investigated by two countries..

"House. So he came to my house late night wearing black leather gloves. And and I suspect that he was going to do something. I just felt that way. And he came to my house. He's banging on my door two three in the morning. And I said, you know, put your hands on my wind on the window of the door. So I could see you don't have anything. And I said you'll I know why you're here. 'cause I I know why you're could tell look different. And I said he he's coming to kill me. So and I said, and I had a hunting knife with me at the front door, and I turn around let me see if you have anything, and he wouldn't turn around. So I think he had a knife. They'd meet again another day in Joseph's living room. Gil was still wearing the black leather gloves and Joseph stood behind a counter clutching, a hunting knife has the discuss strategy, but they would soon stop talking. They both hired high profile lawyers and the former best friends were now working against each. Other. Joseph blamed Gil for getting him back into insider trading after he'd stopped Gill Josefa big liar who taken advantage of his whole life, eventually both of them decided to plead guilty. We're supposed to meet a police. Station, the RCMP to get fingerprinted, and he didn't show up on the night of October twenty six two thousand nine Gill corn bloom jumped off of a bridge and killed himself. His wife would tell reporters that this was the culmination of a lifelong battle with severe depression, and that he was a wonderful friend too many and the finest husband and father possible in total Joseph Gill were found to have made over ten million dollars while insider trading making it the biggest scheme uncovered in Canadian history. But fifteen years after it began their lives were destroyed. So no, I didn't think of these consequences whatsoever. So you think when we started again, the first deal is one hundred eighty dollars. We could just stop there not heard of us ever again. In fact, when we split the money, the first time half-and-half, you know, X millions each we could've stopped there. And know what a Herve us. We could have great life. So at that point. You're not thinking of consequences. But then at the end of the day, you look at it, you say, okay. Well, you know, my best friend is dead lost access. My children lost all the money. Lost career a loss. Hurt the family. The shame. Everything else. So there's so many consequences that never crossed our mind. When we started Joseph was sentenced to thirty nine months in prison. He's still the only person to ever serve time in a Canadian prison for insider trading. But why is that the case the cynical answer is I think it's easier for the regulators and candidate to get someone to plead and pay a fine. So that they can go towards their budget as opposed to take the chance of going to trial and being found not guilty and hurting their credibility before Joseph's conviction. Other people have been charged with criminal insider trading. But there wasn't enough evidence to prove it. And insider trading is happening in Canada Joseph says when he was doing it he could sometimes tell just looking at the markets that someone else was doing the same thing as him. So for example, when I was being interviewed by the regular as I said, well, there are deals that I knew about that. I didn't buy because it was so obvious. Someone else was inside trading on the I didn't want to buy it. Because I thought I would be swept up in someone else's crime. One case involved a large gold mining company that owns shares in the silver mining company. Joseph had insider information about how a deal was going to go down this particular deal was just so clear. Cut matching the deal flow. That might coke us was working directly on. And I told the regular as I look if you know, this is the deal that I didn't touch because of so obvious that these big underwriters are clearly whoever's involved in that bought deal was inside trading. But no one seemed to care any claims that while he was committing his crimes there were people who knew and didn't turn him in in fact. Sometimes they'd profit off of it. So one morning, I put a trade in with inside information on buying whatever X millions of dollars of stock..
A place where the travel ban doesnt matter
"Details. Tell me what it's like inside the library. What does it look like it's very sort of warm and inviting it's very small library. There's a main kind of children's reading room that's very brightly decorated. There's a sort of more kind of work like space that has some tables and and chairs and then computers for people to use. There's sort of a stacks area in the back of the library. And then there's like a main hallway, and that's basically, it's you know, there's wood paneling as an American. I was quite amused at there's a moose head on the wall, very true to form it's sort of has this Victorian feel but also very homey at the same time. And then of course, sort of like pretty innocuous on the ground. There's like this piece of black. I'm not sure if it's like electrical tape or actually just painted on. But it's this like thin black line, that's sort of cuts diagonally across the library. And that demarcates the. The international border. And so, you know, it's sort of almost like an afterthought, it's not really a formal marking and not I think also kind of represents that's this library like once you're in. There these borders. Kind of don't really matter that much and people can freely cross, and they don't really have any issues with that. How does this place even exist in two thousand eighteen given are sort of strong, borders, leaders and immigration law? These days, it seems like a total relic of the past it it really does feel that way. It felt to me like it was in this very tenuous situation. And that that it was a very fragile place. And I think that was obvious and the libraries attitude towards the visits, and in some of the interactions that I learned of as I was reporting this story, especially between US immigration authorities, and the Iranians the sense, I get is that it really depends on the agent and. There isn't like a set policy. One pair of sisters. I spoke to and who are in the story came there last September in the September. And we're we're actually blocked from going, and they were told that the reunions aren't allowed anymore, and then when a staff member invited them in for a tour because at that time the opera house was was having tours later that staff member was was chastised by border patrol. You know, I I heard a lot of stories that are also in the in the piece itself about border patrol agents trying to limit the visits to like twenty minutes to to prevent them from happening in other ways telling people they shouldn't be meeting there. I think when you're there when the is actually arrived there, it's it's hard to say no to them because they're usually like very sympathetic people. Are you know, some elderly parents some, you know, the young students even some children's sometimes come like the nieces and nephews of the students and so. There doesn't seem to be an easy universal policy. You know, we we did hear from a library staff member that both US and Canadian authorities had threatened to shut the library down over the visits. I should say that the Canadian authorities deny that and the Americans declined to respond to to our request for comments. But I had heard from, you know, people connected to the library, former board members just people sort of in the community that there was a lot of pressure that the library was facing over these visits. And it's it's not exactly clear to me, why the Canadians told me I I talked to RCMP basically, they have no problem with the visits. They say they're they're legal, and they don't have any fear of legal crossings because the area's very heavily surveilled. There's a lot of cameras around. So they they have a pretty good sense of who's going in and who's coming out. And you know, I put a lot of questions to the American thirties. They didn't answer they sort of pointed me to a general law against illegal crossings. But you know, there's no point in my story or any of the Iranians that I spoke to that indicates that they intended to legally cross they really just wanted to be at this library temporarily and then go back to where they came from. So I think that as long as the library itself remains open to people from Canada coming in without going through a port of entry that it would be very difficult to completely bar the visits from happening, and there's still this sort of grey zone. And you know, now we're into the winter. We don't like these visits are slowing down naturally anyway. And so it will be interesting to see if this continues when the weather gets nicer, and it's sort of more of the tourist season, Vermont and Quebec. But it it it's impossible to be there. And not sense kind of overall this overriding tension and not see it in the context of. The the US tightening its immigration laws and tightening its immigration policies in general, especially towards obviously people from Iran that very much sort of permeates the atmosphere when you're there, and and when you kind of talked to people about this issue to me, this entire story is just like a picture of a moment in time that you'll never be able to to recreate because we're like this nexus of changing immigration, and yet there's still these places that are like remnants of the relationship that we used to have I I mean, you know, for me, it was this was the story was important because I think like when the history of this era is written like, you know, you'll have the speeches you'll have the policies you'll have the executive orders. But how is the travel ban changing people's lives like that to me is an important question. And also, it's something that's really faded from the headlines and people don't really talk about much anymore because there's just so much other stuff happening. But it was the first thing that Trump did as president, and it was like a week after he. Took office that this happened. And it it's important, and it's like reverberated in thousands and thousands of people's lives. And and I just really wanted to sort of tell that story. And I don't think there's really anyone even in the story who's who even directly criticizes, the Trump administration, or or has any sort of partisan words or anything like that. But I do think you sort of get a very tangible sense of of the lengths that people will go to see each other and sort of what obstacles have now been put in their way. I remember walking around that library and picking out kids books to read or VHS movies to rent or whatever. And and not giving thought to anything about the US Canada border other than it's neat that there's a line on the floor, you know, and as a kid you would jump from back and forth on I'm in America. I'm in Canada. And there was no. But there was no thought back then of this being a heavily regulated border. I really think you know, that that's something that I kind of had some inkling of when I reported the story, and even when I published it, but hadn't thought a lot about there's this historian on Twitter. This guy Jacob remiss, and he was saying, you know, how these sort of spaces these kind of spaces that you can't really categorize that easily. How they mean different things different people when the US sort of starts to close down. It's very contested tradition of openness, and and the and the Canadians. I I don't really know enough about it. But my son says that the border is not as big of an issue to them as it is to the United States, especially after nine eleven I think that was a real turning point from when I talked to people seem like that was when you you could go from just from what you experience in your childhood that just sort of crossing and kind of saying hi to the border agent, but not really having to go through a formal process to what it is now which is. Like every single person has to show their passport and has to subject themselves to question, the questioning and possible searches or whatever it might be. And and these these like little areas are very rare, and maybe fading. I mean one one criticism I got a lot of both during the story. And when it came out was well now that, you know, you're publishing this it's going to end, and you know, there's not much I can say to that. I can't predict the future, and it's really not my position. So sort of try to ensure that something continues or doesn't continue. But, but there was very much that that anxiety among people that like if anyone finds out about this like our lives could change, and we we we won't be able to have this anymore. So it all just kind of felt very precarious and varies sort of fragile scientific maximum of you can't observe something. Like that without changing totally.
