Canadians... What's it really like?

No. I knocked down an easy six figures as a cop. My daily commuter was a Porsche convertible that I custom-ordered new. My wife's car is a BMW Track Pack that I let her custom order new. We flew to Munich Germany to pick it up at the factory- we typically vacation in Europe a month a year.

Heck, I don't remember the last time I had a rookie officer that made less than $100K their first year on the road.
Shoot, I want to work in your department... when I started as an LEO, I made $32k/year, which was about $3k more than other local departments were offering. I made another $14k in overtime. While I wasn't killing myself, I was working quite a bit compared to some of my peers. After 15 years on the force, I still never came close to breaking $100k. I'm now in the IT field, which I like very much.

I think your case is more the exception than the rule, at least in a lot of the US. MTVR, please don't think that I'm picking a fight with you, just stating that at least in the area where I live, cops work long hours for small pay.

Lol the Liberals just voted against a motion to crack down on gun smugglers and people with prohibition orders caught with (usually illegal) firearms. (That's like triple illegal here BTW, no license, unregistered restricted firearm, AND a prohibition order)
But they are going to spend hundreds of millions on a "buy back" of the rifles and shotguns owned by licensed civilians who've been following the rules.
Can't even make up stuff this mind boggling.

The legislation proposed included 3-5 year minimum sentences. Minimum sentences are the most retarded thing since public hangings. If you want a bill to pass, focus on the goal and don't taint the goal with another agenda you know will not pass,,,,, that would be a no brainer......

Not that I disagree with your opinion of our current gun laws, just saying be sure the bill focuses on the goal.

Gents - moderating is a thankless task, but made much easier by those that stick to the terms of use agreement you all signed when you asked to participate here. These reported posts I chase now because you guys can’t keep political commentary to your selves is pushing me to the brink of pulling out the permanent ban hammer! if you want to discuss vehicle dependent exploration, have at it. If you want to continue these personal attacks, disagreements, bad language, and quite frankly non-welcomed commentaries, I’ll be happy to show you the door.
