Conservatives call for investigation into if RCMP, Liberals interfered in N.S. shooting probe to push gun laws

Speaking during Question Period in the House of Commons Wednesday, Interim Conservative Leader Candice Bergen called on the Liberals on to hold a full, transparent investigation amid reports RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki and the former public safety minister, Bill Blair, interfered in the investigation into the Nova Scotia mass shooting in order to push gun control measures. Blair, the current emergency preparedness minister, responded saying the government "at no point" pressured or interfered in the "operational decisions of the RCMP."
