I can almost see the same thing happening to Alberta CPO's that happened to Sask Highway Patrol when they tried to get side arms. They asked for sidearms because of the danger of stopping private vehicles, the Government turned around then told them to stop pulling over private vehicles :crazy:

Although it is of my own personal opinion that any LEO conducting any type of traffic stop should have a side arm, I don't see this happening in my lifetime.

The Sol Gen's Office made it very clear that there were six things that they would not be looking at during this review and sidearms was one of them. So nothing is going to happen.

What were those six things that they weren't going to be looking at?

They are not going to be changing any of the current rules requiring any of the following things. Sidearms, unmarked vehicles, impaired driving, criminal code, 1 & 2 digit highways and file review requirements.

I 110% agree!
