Sergeant Preston of The North-West Mounted Police and his trusty dog 'Yukon King' stories ..... coming soon?

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Dear Mr. Enright:

The other day we attended a high-profile, lengthy murder trial we're covering in Winnipeg that's still underway. One of the many witnesses was an RCMP Officer from Churchill, Manitoba. Because of procedural delays, the Corporal had to be held over for a couple extra days. As word spread, he was increasingly asked by citizens during recesses about the polar bears.

We were particularly fascinated by a couple stories he told describing wolves which ran completely counter to the popular conception. You can read about it in our Friday, February 24 posting, Believe it!

Fast forward to this morning and your interview with new RCMP Commissioner Robert Paulson on occasion of his first 100-days in office. At one point the Commissioner mentioned there are countless success stories by Members that never get told given the media's tendency to focus more on the negative.

Well, we invite any Mountie with a feel good story to contact us. They can self-identify, use "Anonymous" or a pseudonym of their choosing.

Sincerely/Clare L. Pieuk
