THE MOUNTIE"
The scarlet coat of 'The Mountie" for nearly seventy years has been
the symbol of law, order and justice to Canadians, native born or
immigrant. ,
Since 1873, eight years before the start of construction of Canada's
first transcontinental railway—the Canadian Pacific—at first in the
western plains, later during the gold rush to the Yukon of 1898, and
finally, across the Dominion from coast to coast, the history of this
force of constabulary has been a thrilling story of tenacity, endurance
and high courage.
Organized originally as the North-West Mounted Police with the
simple equipment of horse, lance and carbine to handle Indian unrest
and protect settlers in the North-West Territories, the Force played
its part in maintaining order during the construction of the Canadian
Pacific Railway across the Prairies. Van Home, then General
Manager, wrote to Lt.-Col. A. G. Irvine, North-West Mounted Police
Commissioner at Regina:
"Without the assistance of the officers and men of the splendid force
under your command it would have been impossible to have accomplished as much as we did. On no great work within my knowledge,
where so many men have been employed, has such perfect order
prevailed."
In 1904 its name was changed to the Royal North-West Mounted
Police. In 1918 it was assigned the duty of the enforcement of
Dominion legislation for the whole of Western Canada, west of Port
Arthur and Fort William. In 1920 this jurisdiction was extended to
the whole of Canada, and the name of the Force was changed to
the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the headquarters being transferred from Regina to Ottawa. Regina, however, is the Training Centre
for the entire Dominion.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police today, among its other duties,
enforces the laws against smuggling by land, sea and air; is responsible for the suppression of traffic in narcotic drugs and exercises
supervision over aliens. Its strength on December 31st, 1939, was
3,875. On the outbreak of war authority was granted to re-engage
500 ex-members of the Force and 2,500 special constables, if
required.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police today makes use of every known
scientific aid to police protection in its well-equipped laboratories
and pursues the enemies of society ashore, afloat and in the air.
Just as 'The Mounties" played an heroic part in the carving out of
a new democracy on the western frontier so, today, they play a part
in the preservation of that democracy at home and, as one of the
Provost Companies of the Canadian Army, overseas.
