Dressed in their iconic red serge, over 100 Mounties posed shoulder-to-shoulder on North Vancouver’s Capilano Suspension Bridge – one of Canada’s top picturesque tourist attractions. The event, which took place yesterday and was organized by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to help celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. (as pictured below)
The officers, volunteering on their own time, came from the various detachments located across the Lower Mainland.
This was a once-in-a-lifetime and once-in-a-career opportunity to be part of an historic photo occasion, said Supt. Chris Kennedy, Officer in Charge of the North Vancouver RCMP Detachment.
It was a proud moment for all those of us who stood together on the bridge, showing support for the country we serve and protect.
Happy 150th Birthday, Canada!
