RCMP Day Proposal

A group in Vernon has been collecting signature on a petition to make February 1st RCMP Appreciation Day.

They've collected about 1,000 signatures so far and will present it to Vernon Monashee MLA Eric Foster Thursday afternoon in Vernon. E-mails have been sent to all 85 MLA’s and 40 MP’s from BC looking for support.

The plan is to start the tribute on February 1st, 2020, which would be the RCMP's 100th anniversary.
