How extensive an investigation is necessary to determine how the Nova Scotia tragedy could have been prevented?
"So far this year, the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP has concluded 168 investigations and disagreed with the RCMP's initial findings in almost half of them."

"The highest proportion of the expenses — about 42 per cent — went toward salaries and benefits for the Mass Casualty Commission's staff of 68 people. This also encompasses the per diems of the three commissioners."
"The commission said it has spent about $1.8 million on meeting rooms and office space, which is paid for until November of this year. Another approximately $1.8 million has gone toward preparing reports, the inquiry's website, printing and designs costs."
In the Marine Corps. investigations into what went wrong during an operation, it is the Gunnery and Master Sgts. who are asked.
I suspect the RCMP is similar but seldom used.
