RCMP’s reputation tarnished yet again

Dear editor,

Again again the once sterling reputation of the RCMP has been tarnished.

Dear editor,

Again again the once sterling reputation of the RCMP has been tarnished.

Mr. Ron Francis has failed to consider the more than 20,000 of his RCMP peers who strive daily to preserve public tranquillity in our country.

He, by his actions has managed to make their job just a bit more difficult. Francis also ignored the plight of aboriginal people everywhere by dishonouring his heritage and adding to the negative stereotype.

The thousands of First Canadians who proudly wear the red serge will not thank him. The contradictory nature of his actions is stark.

He sullies the uniform he is so proud of and sobbed when ordered to turn it in.

His choices would indicate a mind in deep distress. He must be relieved of his duties until his thought processes become more lucid.

Ian Parsons,

Courtenay
