Opinion: No more RCMP presence at Victoria airport
from The Times Colonist
So, if they're pulling the Mounties out of the Victoria airport, that must mean the War on Terror is over. Which means Ottawa is cancelling the security fee that's tacked on to every airline ticket, right? Well, no.... They are doing away with the RCMP presence at Victoria International, though, meaning we're going back to pre-Osama days. Back then, the airport would call the Sidney/North Saanich RCMP if the police were needed. Then, in 2006, Ottawa expanded a post-9/11 program that paid for beefed-up policing of major Canadian airports.
