I finally took the kids to the RCMP Sunset Retreat Ceremony. RCMP stands for Royal Canadian Mounted Police, commonly known as "Mounties" and internally as "The Force." The RCMP are unique in the world, for they serve nationally, provincially, municipally, and even internationally. But no matter where they end up, they all train at the RCMP Academy, Depot Division, in Regina, Saskatchewan.
The Safety Bear was popular with the kids!
