In September, 2007, Commissioner Elliott was asked to inverstigate the Water War Crimes. At that time, the death toll stood at about 2, former Deputy Attorney General of Canada John Tait and Mr. Justice James Taylor.
It is arguable that if Commissioner Elliott had done his job properly and carried out a proper police investigation of the crimes alleged some of the dead in the Graveyard of the Guilty would be alive today but, instead, they are dead. Sure, some of them should have gone to jail or been otherwise punished for their crimes but they didn't deserve to die for what, with a couple of exceptions, were a series of white collar crimes.
In our opinion, Commissioner Elliott had a conflict of interest due to his previous position in the Canadian Government where insiders facilitated and participated in the Water War Crimes. A complaint against Elliott was filed with the Commission for Public Complaints against the RCMP and the Commission has recently advised that the investigation is continuing.
So, you be the judge, did Commissioner Elliot announce his resignation because he was linked to the continuing cover up of the Water War Crimes?
