 "The Mounted"
The scarlet coat of "The  Mounted"  has  been  the  symbol  of law,
order and justice to  Canadians since   1873, twelve years  before
Canada's first transcontinental   railway,  the  Canadian  Pacific,
was built.     In  the  western  plains,  during  the   1898
gold  rush to the  Yukon,  and  across the  Dominion, the  history
of the  Royal  Canadian  Mounted  Police  has  been  one of
tenacity, endurance and  high  courage.     Organized as the
North-West  Mounted  Police,  armed  with  horse,  lance  and
carbine to  handle  Indian  unrest  and  protect  settlers  in  the
North-West Territories,  the  Force  maintained  order during
the  building  of the  Canadian   Pacific  Railway across the
Prairies.     In   1904 the  Force  became the
Royal  North-West Mounted  Police.
In   1918,  it was entrusted with the enforcement of  Dominion
legislation  for Western  Canada.     In   1920,  this  jurisdiction
was  extended  to the  whole of Canada,  and the  name  was
changed  to  Royal  Canadian  Mounted   Police.     Headquarters
was transferred  from   Regina,  still  the  Dominion  Training  Centre,
to Ottawa.     The  Royal  Canadian  Mounted  Police
today enforces  laws  against smuggling  by  land,    .
sea  and  air, is  responsible  for the  suppression  of traffic  in
narcotic drugs and  exercises supervision  over aliens.     Use is
made of every  known  scientific  aid to  police  protection  in
its well-equipped laboratories.
Just as "The  Mounted"  played  an  heroic  part in  the carving-out
of a  new democracy on the western  frontier so, today,
it plays its part in the  preservation  of that democracy at  home.
