RCMP trial

The man who conducted an independent review of the Moncton shooting rampage for the R-C-M-P says officers had to make their own decisions because no one took charge.

Retired assistant R-C-M-P commissioner Alphonse MacNeil says the lack of co-ordination continued beyond the initial 20 minute window of the shootings. He says members from other detachments would arrive but not know where to go.  MacNeil also told the Labour Code trial that few front-line supervisors were trained to take control of situations like this at the time.
