Tell the provincial government to Keep the RCMP in Alberta
Dear Alberta MLAs,
I am writing to express my serious concern with the proposal to replace the Alberta RCMP with an expensive new provincial police service.
If we switch to a provincial police service, Alberta taxpayers will be on the hook for an additional ~160 million, currently funded by the federal government, as well as significant transition costs. The result will be a more expensive and less effective police force.
Further, recent polls show that the vast majority of Albertans are satisfied with the police services they receive, and that they are opposed to replacing the RCMP.
Please don’t put our community safety or economy at risk. Let’s keep the RCMP in Alberta, and work to improve police services.
I look forward to your response.
