Roll back wages for RCMP

Recommended Posts

I thought I would pass this along to fellow Canadians here. I received this from my cousin in NS, he is currently a member of the RCMP in Bridgewater.



"For the last 135 years, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have been at the heart of our communities, serving Canadians and keeping us safe.


The question facing you today is what role our national police force will be able to play in addressing the key security challenges in the next chapter in our history.


Recently, the Harper government took the unprecedented step of rolling back RCMP wages. Without the resources to compete for the best and brightest new cadets and retain experienced members, the RCMP stands at a dangerous disadvantage–one that poses significant challenges for the future of Canadian public safety.


CallForBackUp.ca is a forum for ordinary Canadians, RCMP members and friends of the Mounties to stand up for public safety in Canada.


Please look around, join the discussion and take action.


Thank you for your support."

It's really unfair for the government to due such a thing to the men and women of the RCMP that help the communities and put the their lives on the line to protect citizens. They don't make enough as it is, but to actually roll the wages back is so disrepectful.

Beyond disrespectful, that is awful if they go through with that. I think it's like 43K /yr the first 2-3 yrs and 75K after, which to me that is not enough for putting your butt in the potential line of fire each and every day and end up seeing half of what they see on a daily basis. Heck, they even protect the PM on a daily basis. How easily people forget situations like Mayerthorpe when they make these decisions. I really hope this doesn't go through.


I think this wage rollback on raises or wage cap is being applied to all our federal employees here in Canada.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
