Dear Association Members,

Following on the circulation of the article by retired Supt. James Hardy regarding the current railway roadblocks a number of our members sent in comments.  We would like to thank you for taking the time to make your observations and those observations are shown below.

Opinions of Our Members

First and foremost these blockades are being funded by organizations outside of Canada that are intent on destroying our democracy. I am a firm believer that these incidents constitute treason and should not be placed on the RCMP but our military should be the first line of defence. It is time that Canada declares all Indians Canadian Citizens entitled to all the rights and privileges of every other Canadian and stop pouring billions of dollars into their organizations. They are bleeding Canadians of billions of dollars and it will never end. I and my grand-children are not responsible for the mistakes of our fore fathers. Get over it. Get jobs like all other Canadians and support your families. I am one eighth Indian and I consider myself Canadian and I have served my country as a member of the RCMP for 26 years. I know that there are many other Indians that put their country first are and not a part of the ones that are always demanding money from government.

Thank God we have people like you and our members watching over us despite being 99th on the canadian pay scale. Shame on those in government who have not supported our great Force. They will eventually regret their negligence!

Good article, but I think the RCMP has went too far being involved in the social community policing as compared to law enforcement. This might be part of the reason there is so much confusion in the police role both publicly and by members. We need to start doing more policing and less community style policing. Public know who we are and what we do. We don’t need to beg them to like us. They love us when we help them and hate us when the law is enforced on them. It’s a whole new world out there from when I completed my 31 1/2 years of service in 2008. This is true, but I believe the public expect us to enforce the law and we need to ensure governments allow us to do our job and back us up.

Kudos to the author of this piece… contains more logic and clarity than anything I have heard in the media. Hope you can send this to the new outlets. More Canadians need to read this.

Thank you, this world is really mixed up. Praying for our Canada
