Bon anniversaire Surete du Quebec: consistently corrupt for 38-plus years.

Commemorating 38 years of incompetence, amnesia and subterfuge:

Responding to reports that Quebec police spied on journalists’ emails and phone calls Edward @Snowden simply Tweeted “Oh Canada”, mocking us for our naivety:

screen-shot-2016-11-02-at-5-58-41-pm

The Globe and Mail’s Les @Perreaux writes,

“If you don”t care about cops spying on reporters you should care that the cops need reporters to do their investigating for them.”

And to that I would add, “and citizens”.

Meanwhile, the Quebec Union of Professional Journalists @FPJQ is calling for a full public inquiry into the matter. To which I say, get in line.

The FPJQ can have their inquiry AFTER we get our inquiry into the police mishandling of unsolved murders in Quebec, and the destruction of physical evidence (a matter equally systemic across Quebec police forces as the monitoring of media email and telephone calls).

With all due respect to the journalism profession in Quebec, let’s not lionize the media. Over 38 years I can count on my hands the number of reporters who were dedicated and thorough. Most of the hard investigative work was not done by police, NOT BY JOURNALISTS. It was done by private citizens like myself.

Radio Canada weighed in with the resounding, “Qui Police la police?”:

Really? You’re just now realizing how this works?

In a presser last night Chief Public Security Bobblehead, Martin Coiteux opened his mouth and offered nothing but his persistent and unconvincing performance that he was just as shocked as all of us.

The Minister is out of step with the people: None of us are shocked. The game is rigged. The fox is guarding the fox-house.
