The RCMP is recently celebrated its 150th anniversary and the Prince Rupert RCMP wants to celebrate with the community we serve.

Seafest is this weekend and the Prince Rupert RCMP wanted to join in on the festivities by celebrating our 150th of existence, or birthday! The celebration will be held at the Prince Rupert detachment, 100 6th Ave W from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Staff will be serving up birthday cupcakes to celebrate and there will also be hotdogs and cold beverages by donation, with all proceeds going directly to support Constable Jacque Van Wyngaardt's Cops for Cancer fundraising efforts. Constable Van Wyngaardt will also be present peddling away on his bike!
