RCMP mutiny?

First it was Statistics Canada, now uh oh.

Senior RCMP members have complained about Commissioner William Elliott to some of the highest levels of the federal government on two separate occasions in the past seven days, the CBC has learned. The complainants, possibly as many as 10, include some of the force's top officers, including deputy commissioners Tim Killam and Raf Souccar.

They have accused Elliott of being verbally abusive, close-minded, arrogant and insulting. One complaint described Elliott, who became the first civilian to head the Mounties in July 2007, in a rage, throwing papers at another officer.

Verbally abusive, close minded, and insulting? Seems to be SOP for the uniformed cops these days. But anyway, if the RCMP brass are rebelling against Harper's choice of commissioner, hot on the heels of Munir Sheikh's resignation... Is this the beginning of a federal civil service rebellion?

Can't prorogue your way out of that one Stevo.

This is shaping up to be an interesting summer.
