The Royal North-West Mounted Police
Misc. Notes

Note 1

I was fortunate to talk with Harold Nelson of Riverdale in Toronto as his father had been a sergeant in the Royal North-West Mounted Police and he related a story which I include here. I will try to get other stories to add when I next see him.

Harold told me that the police were very much like a local police force with the obvious difference that they had hundreds of miles of territory to cover. I was told that every two years these police officers were transferred to different areas as the Ottawa government were concerned that they had undue political influence on the local population and so by moving them around they would be less likely to influence the people in an election.
