Meh. I really don't care about anyone's sexual orientation except when they flaunt it, and my gay friends feel the same way.
I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.

That video makes me very proud of those particular members who participated in making it and equally as proud of the RCMP for backing them and being on the leading edge amongst police forces in doing this. What an outstanding message to all of those people [especially the youth] who are struggling with this issue and the bullying that goes with it. Bravo!!

Mike the harassment complaints have nothing to do with this topic and should not be used to bring a good thing down. The topic at hand is a GOOD thing regardless of what else may or may not be going on. Besides the only thing you have `knowledge` of in the area you suggested is from the media coverage. Be cautious as to what you believe...

i personally find it offensive and wrong to waste taxpayers funds set aside to stop crime to hear about these issues.
why use money to finance silly video's when the department cant even support their woman members.
and yes thats a fair question in this thread as thats what its about.
on one hand the RCMP puts out a great PR video and on the other slams abused woman members.
sorry i say NAY

What I find offensive is that people think the `PR` video is a waste of money. It not a PR video its a recognition video recognizing the demographic exists and as I said previously...I damn happy to serve along side any member in that video as well as many other male or female members.

My condolences to the family as well.
