RCMP mess hall best for all concerned

Re: Mess hall at RCMP headquarters in Surrey.

I worked for the RCMP for over 30 years so I feel I can actually comment on this (I am not a member).

I worked for the RCMP prior to them having their own mess hall in Vancouver and it is best for everyone that the members have a place where they can go to let off steam with their peers. They  can talk to each other without being afraid that someone from the outside can “overhear” anything they say, etc.

And with today’s new rules around drinking and driving, I know that they will be very responsible and not let anyone drink and drive.

I also think the mess hall should be open for longer  hours, not just for official functions.
