GRC, police montée

The Mounties

The RCMP is one of the world’s most famous police forces. It’s also unique: it is considered a symbol of national identity (ranked above hockey, according to a Statistics Canada survey). I’ve been researching how the RCMP’s position as a Canadian symbol shields it during times of scandal and how that impacts the quality of policing Canadians receive.
