RCMP from BC to PEI to help out with G8/G20 security

RCMP officers will be flown in from across the country to help Toronto and Huntsville with the G8/G20 security.

A federal contract tender is searching for charter planes to “transport a large contingent of personnel and their personal and duty related belongings from across Canada to Toronto and back to perform various site security functions for the 2010 G8/G20 summit.”

Each aircraft must be capable of carrying a minimum of 110 RCMP passengers per leg, as well as between 42 to 52 passengers from the Ontario Provincial Police (who will be hitching a ride with their federal friends).

The flights will begin June 10.
