Canadian Mounties heading to Sudan for UN mission

Two Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) members are heading to Sudan to assist the UN mission in southern Sudan, Canadian Press reported April 21, 2006.
RCMP Sgt. Richard Davis and Cpl. Barry Meyer are expected to arrive in Khartoum in late April, when they will begin training and supporting Sudanese police and, where possible, advising them on policing methods.

Founded in 1873 to maintain peace in the Canadian west, the Mounties became a cultural symbol of Canada. Nowadays they usually travel by car, boat, airplane, or snowmobile rather than on horseback.
