INSPECTOR SCOTT THOMPSON
DISTRICT ONE COMMANDER
I want to welcome you and our guests, Mr. Wynne Powell, the CEO of London Drugs, and Valarie MacLean of the Vancouver Police Foundation to the Vancouver Police Mounted Unit. I also want to acknowledge North Command Superintendent Andy Hobbs of the VPD who is also here today.
The Mounted Unit has been a fixture in Vancouver and Stanley Park since 1909. The horses and police officers of the Mounted Unit patrol the park, but they also engage the public and engage in youth outreach.
