RCMP ‘dragnet’ raises questions

Dear editor,

Regarding a recent traffic "blitz", or perhaps "dragnet," some important questions must be raised.

Dear editor,

Regarding a recent traffic “blitz”, or perhaps “dragnet,” some important questions must be raised.

During this time when the RCMP is in negotiations with the BC Liberals, are the police trying to demonstrate that they can really be tough on crime?

Are the coffers so low that our government must rely on traffic violations to keep the province afloat?

The police haven’t mentioned how many people were given fines when normally they would have been given a warning and sent on their way.

And a far more reaching question: Is this an example of Harper’s vision for Canada?
