    Think of it this way, if it was your house and one of your neighbors witnessed this, would you want them to call the police?

    Nope - call the Mounties. If 911 is available in your area, it works. If not, here is a list of detachments. http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/mb/detach/index-eng.htm
    It's the Land of Opportunity, not the Land of Entitlements - Vote America!!!

    You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
