More money for the RCMP

Dear Editor;
Hey, do I have a plan that will mean money galore for our local RCMP. They won’t have to call for donations for their old-timers hockey anymore. My plan involves cooperation. Here’s how it works.

Dear Editor;

Hey, do I have a plan that will mean money galore for our local RCMP. They won’t have to call for donations for their old-timers hockey anymore. My plan involves cooperation. Here’s how it works. Our local Tim Hortons must set up a satellite store on Highway 53, roughly half of a mile west of Highway 2. When our members go for coffee at this new place, they can set up their radar traps and tag those gravel trucks that come off Highway 2 at speeds exceeding 100 km/h. From what I see, the exit speeds are either 40 or 60 km/h – easy picking, don’t you think? What do you say members, can we put this plan together?
