According to the story: “The document, obtained by CTV News, was signed earlier this summer by Senate Speaker Leo Housakos, House Speaker Andrew Scheer, as well as Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney and RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson. The document outlines how the various security services on Parliament Hill will collaborate, including House and Senate security, and the RCMP. Ultimately, the RCMP is responsible for all security on the Hill, however responsibility for selecting personnel remains under the purview of the Senate and House speakers.”
