Braidwood Inquiry to subpoena RCMP officers

After two delays in a year because the Crown can't decide whether or not to lay charges against any of the four RCMP officers involved in Robert Dziekanski's death at Vancouver Airport a whole freakin year ago, it would appear Thomas R. Braidwood, QC, has run out of patience :

Thomas R. Braidwood, QC, Commissions of Inquiry :
"The Braidwood Inquiry is looking for anyone who witnessed the events at Vancouver International Airport on October 14, 2007 concerning Mr. Robert Dziekanski death. Please view the Braidwood Inquiry's Call For Witnesses page if you would like to participate in the hearings as a witness.
Braidwood Commission of Inquiry will subpoena the RCMP officers involved in the incident if Crown counsel has still not made a decision on charges by the time the inquiry resumes on January 19, 2009. Read the full details on the Press Releases page."

G&M Nov 3 2007 :
"The RCMP paid a communications consultant almost $25,000 in taxpayers' money to help Giuliano Zaccardelli prepare for parliamentary hearings that ultimately led to the commissioner's resignation. Documents obtained by The Canadian Press show the Mounties hired Ottawa firm McLoughlin Media at a cost of more than $400 an hour in advance of Mr. Zaccardelli's ill-fated autumn testimony on the Arar inquiry report."

Dear RCMP : Suggest you use a different fluffer firm to prepare for this inquiry.
