CIU asks CBSA to reinstate the three suspended officers from Manitoba

August 28, 2014

Following CBSA’s decision to suspend three members without pay, CIU sent a letter to CBSA President, Luc Portelance.

The disciplined officers were on duty at their port in Emerson, Manitoba, when an RCMP officer contacted the port with an urgent request for assistance to help apprehend a reportedly armed individual who was a suspect in a kidnapping and wanted on outstanding warrants.

While CIU writes it is committed to helping the suspended officers through the grievance process, it suggests that CBSA reinstate the officers with full back pay and proposes that a Joint Working Committee be formed to review the 2010 CBSA policy regarding assistance to law enforcement agencies.
