Why did police reduce patrols despite multiple warnings of a possible Parliament Hill attack?

Documents have been released which confirm that the RCMP had received multiple warnings of a possible attack, prior to the Parliament Hill shootings taking place. Following the warnings, the RCMP decided to reduce their patrols in the area, but why? It is believed that they intentionally decreased their presence around the parliamentary precinct just days before the attack took place. It is alleged that the area was understaffed by at least 29 positions, during the time that the attack took place.


For those who are unaware, back in 2014 a gunman (Michael Zehaf-Bibeau) approached Parliament Hill in Ottawa, is believed to have conducted a shooting; resulting in the death of a Canadian soldier who was stationed there. The shooter himself ended-up getting shot at least 31 times by at least six different officers who arrived on the scene. If the police had received warnings that such an event could take place, why would they decrease security in the area?


Documents that were obtained by CBC News under the Access to Information Act, reveal that a security memo was distributed widely to the force just days before the attack, from their own Criminal Intelligence Integrated Unit. The memo alleged that terror groups had been actively encouraging for actions to be launched against members of law enforcement from countries that were fighting those extremists overseas. The document called for the police force to take precautions, and yet that somehow translated into decreased security?

An Ontario Provincial Police Report (OPP) boldly declared that “security and protection of Parliament Hill” had been highly inadequate, in a report that was just released in March of this year. Some say that the shortcomings are due to a lack of resources. Since February of this year, the House of Commons and the Senate, have been in the process of having their security services integrated into one. The OPP proposes that this will help to provide “seamless rather than balkanized” security for those in the area.
