Richmond RCMP recognize Project Rainbow
Published 10:54 PDT, Fri October 16, 2020
Richmond RCMP is now displaying a rainbow pride flag sticker on the front doors of their detachment, showing their support and inclusion of the LGBTQ2S+ community in the city as part of Project Rainbow.
Project Rainbow is a national awareness campaign that demonstrates the acceptance, diversity and inclusiveness of the RCMP as a modern employer. Visitors to Richmond’s detachment will see the sticker permanently on display near the entrance, along with the following explanation:
We can be approached without judgement.
You can feel safe speaking to us.
This is a show of support for diversity and inclusion.
We seek to create a positive and safe space for everyone.
We embrace the diversity of the population.
We are Canada’s national police: serving with pride.
“All Canadians have the right to live free from discrimination—free from hatred,” says Supt. Will Ng, officer in charge of the Richmond detachment. “Anyone who feels unsafe or unsupported can speak to any one of our officers knowing they can do so without judgement.”
