    Interesting the RCMP is experiencing such a staffing crunch. One would think it would be an appealing career to many without a university education or trade to rely upon.

    I get the impression based on the wording of the article that the issue they're having revolves more around not being able to attract women and visible minorities (whatever the fuck that means)

    That being said, I've known a few RCMP new hires. They don't exactly make the job appealing.

    I was so afraid of what was happening in my country that I left my country. Then left the country I had fled to.

    Yeah, it’s baffling. We should have Canada’s greatest and brightest minds drop everything to ponder it.

    Still better than being unemployed or labouring on a construction site.

    Labouring on a construction site is surprisingly an effective way of obtaining an apprenticeship. A lack of an apprenticeship would drive someone to settle with the RCMP, according to you.

    (This is typically the point where you would deny the contradiction in your logic)

    Also, I would sooner financially support a female family member than have her work for an organization that has over 3131 sexual harassment claims against its members.

    This may come as a shock to you, but some people would rather work manual labour than be an RCMP officer.

    This.

    Manual labour is honest and difficult work, while police can lie in order to build a case against a suspect. They can also sexually assault people and retain their wage for over two years while working another job in the oilfield.

    Red Deer is ground zero in terms of RCMP sexual assault and a lot of it is covered up.

    Labouring on a construction site with out the ability or means to complete trade school is not an effective way of obtaining an apprenticeship.

    Point was, RCMP should be an attractive route to a well paying career for many without access to post secondary.

    Best paying job anyone will find without post secondary, a trade or a specialized skill.
