Canada's surplus military gear goes mostly to museums, not police
Toronto Star
As the debate over the militarization of police continues in the United States, new data reveals surplus military equipment in Canada is more likely to end up in a museum than with a municipality. Data compiled by the Department of National Defence shows approximately a third of surplus military transfers over the past four years have gone to museums. A smaller proportion of surplus equipment made it to local and national police forces, according to the data, released to the Star under access to information laws.

Editorial: Police do more than nab crooks
Times Colonist
Numbers don’t lie, goes the saying. Perhaps, but neither do they tell the whole truth. Greater Victoria police forces are overstaffed, says the Fraser Institute, drawing that conclusion from its study called Police and Crime Rates in Canada. The study of metropolitan regions across the country analyzed policing levels, local crime rates and factors such as median family income, unemployment and youth populations. It used Statistics Canada data over a 10-year period to calculate the optimal number of police officers.

Experts: Little research and training being done to combat police suicides
Yahoo
There’s almost no systematic research being done in Canada into the causes of suicide among police officers and other first responders, an expert on the issue says. There’s been media-wide coverage of suicides in the military related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) since the end of the Afghan mission. But far less about cops, paramedics, corrections officers, firefighters and even social workers who kill themselves because what they experience on the job becomes too much to bear.

Railway industry targets emergency response plans
Canadian OH&S News
The railway industry in Canada continues to tackle emergency response assistance plans (ERAPs) in the aftermath of the Lac-Mégantic train derailment last year in Quebec. Andy Ash, director of dangerous goods with the Ottawa-based Railway Association of Canada, said that Transport Canada had issued four protective directions to the industry since the July 6, 2013 derailment, which claimed the lives of 47 people. One of those, Protective Direction no. 33 (PD 33), placed new ERAP requirements on certain flammable liquids, such as petroleum crude oil and ethanol.

Why Canada is surprisingly impotent at dealing with violent sex offenders
National Post
On July 21, 1991—a Sunday—19-year-old Raymond Caissie walked into Trethewey House, a quaint Abbotsford, B.C. museum, and found it empty save for a fourth-year teaching student at the front desk. Brandishing a knife, he raped the woman on the spot, before kidnapping her, forcing her to withdraw cash from an ATM, and taking her to a remote field near the U.S. border. After forcing the woman to perform oral sex, he jammed a gag in her mouth and used string to bind her tightly to a tree. There she remained until her cries were heard by passing farm workers.

What price policing? The aftershock of Kal Ghadban's tragic end
Ottawa Citizen
Is being a police officer this crippling an occupation? It is an inevitable question today, given the shocking loss of Staff Sgt. Kal Ghadban, the sad-eyed officer who, among many things in a long career, took pity on a generation of lost reporters. We’ve turned police into the city’s largest roster of psychiatrists and social workers. What toll, on them?

Chinese police start carrying guns, fatal effects have rippled across country
National Post
Invoking the threat of terrorism, Chinese police for the first time in years have started carrying guns and, with little training, using them. The fatal effects have rippled across the country, reaching even this tiny mountain village. China’s removal of a ban on police guns came in response to a gruesome attack on a train station several hundred miles from here, but it has given the police almost blanket authority to shoot whenever they see fit.
