RCMP airplane fleet subject of integrity probe

A report into alleged wrongdoing with the RCMP's small fleet of aircraft will be released just after 10 a.m. ET today.

Public Sector Integrity Commissioner Mario Dion had to fight the federal government in court to release the report.

In a release, Dion said the report has "findings of wrongdoing" following an investigation into the Ottawa air section of the RCMP. 

The report is expected to be significant after the government went to Federal Court to try to prevent Dion from tabling it, arguing it would undermine public confidence in the RCMP. The court dismissed the injunction motion.

The report was supposed to be tabled the week of Nov. 17, but was delayed by the court proceedings. 

RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson told reporters Monday that he couldn't comment on the case, but the RCMP would respect the court's decision.

The government's Federal Court application and the integrity commissioner's response aren't being released publicly yet, so there is little available information about the case. But the judge's reasons for denying the injunction are public.
