    NDP report out on costs for transitioning to Alberta Provincial Police.

    For a family of four in Rocky Mountain House, a provincial police force adds $2,248 to their property taxes over the six-year transition. In Camrose taxes rise by $2,576. In Cochrane and in Chestermere, it’s almost $4,000 more. In Canmore, a family of four pays $10,400 in new taxes.

    That's what you get with the NDP tho.

    I thought the NDP was all about making people pay more taxes for government services?

    They should love this as they are describing it!

    I have a hard time knowing if that's accurate, but they sure choose to present it in an obscure way.

    How about average lifespan of an Alberta resident? What's that, about 85 years?

    Silly NDP, it's the residents of Calgary and Edmonton that will see more of their tax dollars going to fund the extra costs of a provincial police force, not the rural residents.

    how amazing is it when the ndp decide to do something their ideas pay for itself meanwhile the ucp propose something and the sky is falling.

    Anyone see the article from the rcmp deleting phone recordings? Their covering their tracks..... we pay for their corruption and laziness.

    ^^^ I read about that yesterday and was going to post something. It's mind blowing. "Yes there was a recording, no we don't know where it is, it's gone".....just wow

    just met a neighbor I haven't met before on the side of the road. He pulled into his driveway as some thieves were making off with their truck. High speed chase goes down... guys on the phone with rcmp. They won't be able to assist for 45 minutes.

    Chase gets too dangerous as the thieves go through fields and across a highway.

    Again rcmp unable to help or assist.

    But Alberta Police would've sprinted into action because reasons?
    Would they also do your taxes and clean up dog shit?

    It’s just good manners to clean up the dog’s shit after fucking it.

    You guys are right the RCMP ade amazing, how dare anyone want more rural officers out there. High risk, high speed chases don't deserve a response. My neighbor probably deserved to have his truck stolen....

    High speed chase in persuit of stolen property is not behaviour anyone should support.

    You are right, the thief should be shot.

    The example of the aftermath in Nova Scotia is one of the reasons I would want a provincial police force. The Federal government pressured the commander of the RCMP to gather information that supports their agenda on guns. It's been discussed here before but the Federal agenda is not dictated by Albertans, it's dictated by big Cities in Ontario and Quebec.

    I don't really believe that the level of service would raise significantly, but it would reduce these distractions from command. The other side of it is if we pour more money into it, we know the money is staying in the Province serving our people.

    To properly patrol vast areas it's probably cheaper to invest in drones and strategic posts for ground troops.

    Who are the Alberta police going to hire? The same inept RCMP officers, or is there a cache of good people somewhere that for some reason aren't currently working as police officers?

    It kind of seems like the new police would just be the old police, with different stickers on the car doors.

    Cops follow orders. The fuckups come from higher up/in management.

    Think of it like AHS/healthcare; it's not the nurses that are the problem for the most part.

    I imagine recruitment would be much more successful if you're paying an extra 40k/yr, and applicants don't have to worry about being sent to Buttfuck nowhere in NWT. There's plenty of good people that have the desire for public service, but not self deprecating enough to submit themselves to what is involved in joining the RCMP.

    The potential of being sent to buttfuck any province is a big deterrent to recruiting for RCMP. Reason city cops have eaoser time getting applicants. RCMP is very undesirable career for people with options.
