North Vancouver, BC – 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 Thursday June 8, 2017, was organized by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to help celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.
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.
The RCMP would like to thank Capilano Suspension Bridge for their participation and support in helping to make it possible for this event to take place. Recognition also goes out to S/Sgt. Paul Duffy of the North Vancouver RCMP whose creative idea it was to produce this timeless photo.
Happy 150th Birthday, Canada!
