Time for B.C. police force?

It's simply outrageous that (Surrey Mayor) Brenda Locke continues to promote the RCMP in Surrey.

A 2022 all-party MLA committee on policing unanimously recommended the formation of a British Columbia provincial police force to replace the RCMP.

That report acknowledged a Grade 12 education and six months training wasn't enough (for recruits) and oversight with the Citizens Review Complaint Commission is not adequate.

The commission been described as useless and toothless, with no authority over an RCMP officer. That is left up to the local RCMP superintendent.

Contact your local MLA if want to see change.
