RCMP want tent on Wreck Beach
This is the perfect example of everything that is wrong with the RCMP. Front page of today's Vancouver Province is an article about how the RCMP intends on pitching a collapsible tent each afternoon on wreck Beach from the May long weekend to Labour Day as a public-safety measure. A nudist beach. No other beach in Vancouver just on Wreck beach. The biggest tragedy is the fact that they can't even see how totally unappropriated this is.
What are they going to do have Jim Brown and Don Ray patrol that beat? Talk about creepy. How does this help overcome the RCMP's bad image of perverts and sexual harassment? Patrolling a beach? How about patrolling a high crime area like the DTES? Why don't they set their little tent up in Newton or Whalley where the crime is, not to spy on and creep out the general public on a nudist beach. Is there any hope left for the RCMP? I don't know where to begin.
The day after another shooting fatality in Surrey Bill Fordy says he's doing everything he can to make Surrey safe. He forgot one thing: TRANSFER. If he transferred out of Surrey that would make it a lot more safe. Then whoever replaces him can start addressing the drug realted crime in the big red circles on the map. In Surrey you're allowed to sell crack. You just can't jay walk.
