Dziekanski: the Harper factor

My, what a coincidence. A cooperation treaty between Canada and Poland, which enabled the RCMP to go on a dirt-gathering expedition to Robert Dziekanski's home town in Poland, was unilaterally suspended by the Harper government as soon as the cops returned.

This will effectively block any attempt by Poland to gather information for possible charges against the four officers involved in Dziekanski's death, presently sweating under the bright light of the Braidwood Inquiry.

With the usual transparency, a Department of Justice spokeswoman stated:
"Communications between Canada and a foreign country are confidential. As such, it would be inappropriate to comment on the specific circumstances of this or any other matter."

Good to have friends in high places about now.
