Toews put across his frustration in the letter asserting that he was not given any action plan from Paulson that “we (you and I, the RCMP and the Government) could present to Canadians.” Toews claimed in the letter, that he has only received an analysis of the existing situation within the force. The letter also indicates that the analysis report submitted by Paulson, on the state of women within the force, did not surprise Toews. He alleged that “in many ways the analysis confirmed issues that we have all known to exist within the force.”
Currently, a total of 15,000 male officers and about 4,000 female officers reside in the RCMP task force, out of which the majority of the women officers have lower ranks. Toews suggested that RCMP shall reduce the number of harassment complaints, and address any complaints more quickly.
