MOUNTED POLICE AT MACLEOD


On the Orders of the Day:

George Gibson Coote

Progressive

Mr. G. G. COOTE (Macleod) :

A report is current that the Government contemplate removing the detachment of mounted police that is at present stationed at Macleod, and I have been asked by the citizens of that town to point out to the Government that at Macleod is located the oldest established mounted police station in Alberta. The town of Macleod and the mounted police are so closely associated that the citi-

[Mr. Lapointe.|

The Budget-Mr. Lapointe

zens feel that if a detachment of the Royal Mounted Police is to be maintained anywhere in southern Alberta it should be at Macleod. I would ask permission to read one or two sentences from a letter I have received upon the subject:

If the police are to be maintained anywhere in the south then Macleod should have first claim as tihe town owes the fact of Its existence to the police post here and nowhere I believe outside of Regina have they a more complete equipment in the way of buildings, grounds, horse pasture, etc. The history of Macleod and the police is so interwoven that it is hard to disassociate one from the other, and it would be with keen regret the citizens would see this association broken.

I do not wish to make the question lengthy, but I would ask the Government to consider carefully before removing the detachment from Macleod, and if possible to give some assurance to the citizens of that town that the matter will receive every consideration.

I shall be pleased to call the attention of tne Minister of Justice (Sir Lomer Gouin) to the representations of my hon. friend. But the Government would like to be clear on this point: Do I understand that the hon. member, on behalf of the citizens of -Macleod, asks that the mounted police be retained in Macleod irrespective of whether or not they are to be retained in other parts of the province of Alberta?

Mr. COOTE:

The citizens of Macleod, in telegrams they have sent to me, ask that the detachment be retained. I have also a letter pointing out that if a detachment of the mounted police is to be removed from any part of the province, Macleod is the last station that should be abandoned, because it is the oldest established mounted police station in southern Alberta and the one best situated from a strategic point of view. I should be glad if the Government would state as early as possible whether it is intended to remove the detachment from Macleod.

I think my right hon.

friend appreciates that while Parliament has been in session the Government has been very busily engaged. Great care should be given to the carrying out of this amalgamation, and such delay as has taken place will, I think, in the long run prove to the advantage of the country.
