Because the Quebec English media does not feel it important to report it, I will say it in broken English:
Yesterday the demand to form a special police squad to investigate missing persons in Quebec was defeated in the National Assembly on the first vote. I say to you this: Keep speaking the truth though your voice may shake.
Madame Marois? Keep toying with us. Continue to obfuscate with pathetic radio appearances on the plight of Parizeau and his separatiste dreams. Victims don’t forget and we are very patient… we can afford to wait.
M. Charest? Keep avoiding us… it’s OK, you have been doing this for 8 years. You remember my phone call to you in 2002? There will be a reckoning. You think we are so stupid that we don’t see the connections?
We crime victims are very patient. Michel Surprenant has waited ten years, I have waited 31… that’s fine. Soon you will realize the reason we wait is because we are playing chess, not checkers.
Alors… de Quebec Secours:
” We learn today, November 19, the bill for a specialized team for missing persons was beaten in his room at first reading. While Quebec would have hoped that for once we can get away with the small politics that leads nowhere. QUEBEC RELIEF, like 83% of the population of Quebec, and welcomes the proposal unconditionally support the member for Chambly and spokesman of the official opposition in public safety, Bertrand St-Arnaud, claiming the minister of Public Security, Jacques Dupuis, the establishment of a specialized team dedicated to searching for missing persons. The member submits, rightly, that at present, Quebec is the last class in this field in Canada.
This squad has the advantage of allowing investigators to not only devote their energies to solving cases of disappearance, but to ignore jurisdictional boundaries.These files are processed directly by allowing better monitoring and continuity which is not slowed by the emergence of other issues that are delaying those of missing persons.
M.St Arnaud reported in Ontario since 2006, a brigade established in this area has helped to clarify 41 cases of disappearance and suspected to increase the resolution rate of 15 to 30 per cent. The demand of the opposition joins that of Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu, founder of the Association of Families of people killed or missing (AFPAD) which in the past has rebuffed the government to train a squad of its kind . AFPAD was even ready to form his own brigade if things were not evolving as quickly.”
