Dear Ms. Martin:
On behalf of the Honourable Rob Nicholson, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, I acknowledge receipt of your correspondence of August 16, 2012, in which you express concerns about the conduct of a particular person.
As Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, Minister Nicholson is mandated to provide legal advice only to the federal government. It is important to note that the Minister does not have the authority to initiate investigations or prosecutions. Similarly, neither departmental officials nor members of his staff are in a position to help resolve the matters you describe.
As you may know, the police are responsible for the investigation ofCriminal Code offences. I note that you have written directly to the RCMP in relation to this individual. As the RCMP is an agency of Public Safety Canada, I have taken the liberty of forwarding a copy of your correspondence to the Honourable Vic Toews, Minister of Public Safety, so that he may also be made aware of your concerns.
Thank you for writing.
