RCMP protest

The RCMP’s top cop says no Mounties will be subjected to retribution or discipline for altering their uniforms to protest their pay and working conditions, but Commissioner Bob Paulson is asking members to reflect on their actions.

Late last week, Mounties started to remove or cover up the yellow stripes on the pants.

The catalyst for the campaign was a long-awaited new pay package that virtually everyone at the RCMP, including Paulson, agrees is insufficient.
