I really like the black and white paint schemes of Calgary and Edmonton. West Grey's Charger, the First Place winner is sharp.

I'm anxiously awaiting an update to the RCMP's livery. Wishful thinking?

Don't hold your breath on the RCMP to change their decals.. We are cutting 200 millions of our budget, we are so short and we are lacking proper and quality equipment. The last thing to do right now is spend money on decals my friend.

Well, I'm a fan of Edmonton and Calgary going back to Black and White, I don't really like what Calgary did in terms of their door decal. I feel something better than just uniform patch could have gone on there. Also I think Calgary should have done both front and rear doors white, not just the front ones.
I do like the use of Gold lettering over the black however

My 2 cents

Not a fan of the all blue or all black with striping or swooshes.

CBSA scheme kicks ass though.

I think those black (or dark blue?) CBSA cars with the similar branding with slick tops look badass. There are quite a few of those kicking around the Niagara POA's.



The Ford factory brandings are blaaaaaaaaaah.

Its nice to see the CBSA vehicle package win. They've put together a professional striping/marking scheme.

If only CSC could get a striping/marking scheme down. We don't have a standard so it varies so much.

So who drives the CBSA vehicles? G4S security guards doing prisoner transport?

No.

CBSA transports their own...for the most part. G4S is contracted to transport regulatory immigration cases. Anything criminal, is dealt with by our own...or police.


And those "regulatory immigration cases" are responsible for the vast vast vast vast majority of CBSA transports...

In order for a car to be considered a "slick top" I think there has to be a premeditated effort to make a vehicle more "stealthy" by removing a light bar that would otherwise be on said vehicle.

The cars you speak of simply lack light bars and only have very basic lighting packages on them... (Maybe that's because the CBSA doesn't really need emergency lighting, but I'm sure that's a conversation lots of people here are eager to have!)

Oh, and the fact that some of the cars are white, some are blue, and some are black with several different styles of markings (at the same POE!!!) is just proof that there really isn't a cohesive policy for ordering and dressing these vehicles.

I also don't understand why there is gold in the CBSA markings. Someone should have reminded them that the official CBSA colours have been Blue and Silver since like 2006!

Why do you insist on coming back to speak on topics you continually demonstrate to have zero knowledge or experience of? The CBSA does have a policy, and it is white vehicles. It was put into place a couple of years ago. The differing colours of vehicles deployed in the field is not a clear demonstration of a lack of cohesive policy, but rather a clear demonstration of the new policy being phased in. Get lost already.

I would think that many of those vehicles are: (1) Being replaced and, as such, not having their markings redone. (2) Are in line to have their markings redone. You see this all the time with police services when they go to a new decal scheme. Some have old, some have new. Its time consuming and costly to redo cruisers.
