The National Police force of Canada is the RCMP – Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
They are also the provincial police in most of the Provinces and Territories.
Some provinces, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec have their own forces.
Some major cities have their own forces and work with either their provincial force or the RCMP.
British Columbia, has almost half of the entire RCMP because they are the provincial and community police and most cities, plus The University of BC Campus.
The Three Police Forces of particular concern to the queer community is RCMP, Toronto and Vancouver Police forces.
These are the police groups that most harrassed the Federal Public Service during the 1950s and into the 1970s Fruit Machine witch hunts for queers.
They are also the enforcement establishment side of society that denied us personhood.
So, it is not enough for Toronto Police to say about the Bath Houses or the Vancouver Police to rainbow block watch and make it into a business marketing BIA scheme.
