Vancouver 2010 (Part 3): Mounted Police Post

February 11, 2010

This post might not be so relevant to the Olympics…, well, it’s still Canada related. I usually have very little interests in the typical touristy souvenir shops, but this one caught my attention when I saw the walls filled with a variety of police badges. (a similar reaction to the Olympic pins.)

Located just steps from the Vancouver Convention Centre, the Mounted Police Post shop specializes in RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) collectibles, Mountie memorabilia and Canadian gifts (Map). Every item in the store is approved and licensed by the Mounted Police Foundation in Ottawa.


The store continues to fill the walls with the police badges that come from many places in the world. (They are not for sale.)
