RCMP used cadets for Hill security for two years after 2014 shooting
Cadets were used to meet 'unexpected operational demands' following the Oct. 22, 2014 shooting on Parliament Hill, says an RCMP spokesperson. The Parliamentary Protective Service is forming a ‘special response’ team that will eventually assume some of the duties of regular force RCMP.
The Parliamentary Protective Service has been given more than $60-million to protect Parliament Hill this year. The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
