'Good to read regular reportings of the RCMP's efforts in our Community. It appears that not only are they upholding the law with apprehending criminals, but that they also take the time as "Community Officers" to assist in time consuming reconciliation purposes as well during some of their call outs. Good job.
'Proud to have the RCMP here serving this City!
