Mountie stripe protest continues

Coast Reporter – The commander of the Sunshine Coast RCMP says he wants to reassure the public that a protest by some local RCMP members hasn’t had any impact on service delivery.

During his quarterly update to Gibsons council April 18, Staff Sgt. Vishal Mathura described the movement, which began with members at the Sunshine Coast and North Vancouver detachments removing or covering the yellow stripes on their trousers, as a “silent protest by some members of the RCMP related to their current wages and the current working conditions we have in the RCMP.”
