The father in law of one of the Mounties killed on June 4th, 2014 is frustrated with the answers to his question about the patrol carbine roll out at Codiac RCMP.

In December, Charlie Goguen, father in law of Doug Larche, asked the Codiac Regional Policing Authority what happened to money put aside for carbines, and when exactly they were purchased.

He was disappointed with the answers he was given.

"They're not worth the paper they're written on, they didn't really answers my questions that I had, they're kinda dismissing them I think," says Goguen. "And there's not much they can do, that's just the way things are."

He says the answers he received simply aren't enough.

"I want to be here for basically to help others, that's my goal, the ultimate goal is for the safety of the citizens of Canada, and police forces all across Canada," says Goguen. "That is my only goal, I don't want anybody to go through what my entire family's gone through."

Codiac RCMP Superintendent Tom Critchlow provided an update saying they currently have 39 carbines at the detachment.

"The majority of our members at Codiac are trained on carbines, and we have enough," says Critchlow. "There's enough for those that work every day, and for those that are trained they have them, and they're available."
