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!
