Canadian Mounties

It is Canadian Mounties you asked for, and it is Canadian Mounties you shall have. People appeared to like the picture yesterday, so I thought I would show this one today. This is a group of six Canadian Mounties on a porch in Dawson City in the Yukon Territory.

I got an email from someone yesterday from Canada commenting on the picture, but then they said that it is too bad the organization has become such a national disgrace. I had never heard of anything going on scandalous about the mounties. Is there some problem I have not heard of? Inquiring minds want to know.

  1. Did you know that the red coats that they wear are just for show. Their normal uniform is brown.

  3. Actually, their working uniform can be either brown or blue depending on which division they are assigned to.

  5. Google RCMP scandal or RCMP corruption. But I thought they had cleaned up their act quite a bit.

  6. If anyone like the old time serials from Republic Studios check out "King of the Royal Mounted". A 12 part rip roaring adventure about squared jawed Sgt Dave King of the RCMP.

  8. Alas, the Mounties who patrol the streets in my northern Alberta town wear black stab-proof vests and ride around in clapped out Fords.
