Here in Moncton, some years ago, the RCMP replaced the city force because they were "cheaper" and could be "more efficient". That's what the newspaper said so the force and the politicians could save face. The corruption was unreal. Gambling, prostitution, booze, drugs, "violence" (a buddy of mine told me that they kept the press away from the morgue when a John Doe was brought in.)

There was great debate last month about going back to our own force but a 10% subsidy was authorized by the feds... and, man-o-man, the RCMP are handing out traffic violation tickets left and right! Win-win, I think.
