It depends on what you choose to remember

Glen McGregor notes that the police commissioner for whom the Harper government named the new RCMP headquarters left a debatable record.

The Mounties’ new shop is named for former RCMP Commissioner Maurice Nadon.  Pop open any of three volumes of the McDonald Commission reports into the RCMP’s barn burning, mail opening and other illegal activities in the 1970s, and you’ll quickly come across Nadon’s name.

Vic Toews says of Nadon that “the good certainly outweighs any criticisms he might have been put to.”
