British Columbia May Dump RCMP And Create Its Own Provincial Police

After incidents that involved pepper spraying an infant and a toddler and the killing of Robert Dziekanski, the Province of British Columbia may stop using the scandal ridden Royal Canadian Mounted Police and create their own provincial police force.

"The policing agreement between the province and the federal government expires in 2012 and will need to be re-negotiated. At present the RCMP has one-third of its entire force located in British Columbia. This amounts to more than 9,500 employees who police areas ranging from isolated Aboriginal communities and coastal villages to major cities such as Surrey.[...] One major change the province was seeking was to have the RCMP accountable for its conduct to the people and government of B.C., not just to the federal government in Ottawa, he said."

It's about damn time!

Does this mean Dudley will be out of a job, Dawg?

With civilian oversight, I hope.

...Mound ... Agreed

...TomCat ... Dudley will be able to continue tasering folks in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, as well as the Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut!

... Anne ... I couldn't agree more!
