Tell the provincial government to Keep the RCMP in Alberta

Dear Alberta MLAs,

 

I am writing to express my serious concern about the Alberta Government’s lack of transparency and information sharing regarding their proposal to replace the Alberta RCMP with an expensive new Provincial Police Service.

 

Albertans deserve to know the details of such a transition, and the government needs to be accountable and transparent with us. That’s why I am asking you to immediately make public the PricewaterhouseCoopers LLC (PwC) report that was submitted to Government on April 30.

 

Albertans need to know all facts to make an informed decision.  If we move to build a new provincial police service, taxpayers will be on the hook for an additional ~160 million, currently funded by the federal government, as well as for millions of dollars in transition costs. In the end, we would end up paying more for less police service.

 

Further, recent polls show that the vast majority of Albertans are satisfied with the police services they receive from the RCMP and are opposed to replacing the RCMP.

 

Please don’t put our community safety or economy at risk, especially when the majority of Albertans do not support this transition. Let’s keep the RCMP in Alberta and work together to improve police services where needed.

 

I look forward to your response.
