Where have all the Mounties gone?

Another legend bites the dust, as Macleans reports that these days, the Mounties don't always get their man - and worse yet, can't be arsed to even try in a lot of cases because they're so short-staffed due to the demands of contract policing. Via Newsbeat One through Instapundit.

For this post alone, I wish I had revolutionaryjo's "Brokeback Mountie" icon, although the context here is completely different. I was appalled to read that the RCMP does so much local police work - it would be like the FBI manning patrol cars in International Falls, MN or New Market MD. I thought that stuff went out with Dominion status in the 1950s.

EDIT Updated with special Mountie icon goodness thanks to revolutionaryjo!

Icon just for you.
Noooo! My beloved mounties! What have you come to? I blame all of this on the cancellation of Due South. That was some good honest promotional mountie material.

Indeed. That was a fine, fine show...and the opening song has a certain melacholy to it now, after reading the Macleans story.
