$15.3 Million dollars worth of gold, unaccounted for.
"Junior Transport Minister Rob Merrifield, who's responsible for the mint, called in the RCMP on June 9 after he learned that an audit would not "rectify the problem" of the missing gold. That's about 10 weeks after the government first learned of the missing gold"
Maybe it is just me, and I could be mistaken - sure. But the RCMP is such a politicized agency, by politicized I mean, they do the work of the political bodies, the government.
I gotta question there use in this situation.
Recalling, it was the government that told the Mint to call in the RCMP
The mint has asked the RCMP to help account for the mystery metals after being told by the government to call in the Mounties.
However the RCMP, has got their man, or in this case they have resolved the issue of the missing gold.
Mint officials double-counted some gold bullion they sold, and also underestimated the shrinkage of the gold during processing."
