The RCMP’s 86% Solution

“I commend the RCMP for their approach.There are people who have been denied opportunities for much too long simply because they don’t show ability in their desired field. Our belated recognition as a society of the emotional wounds caused by overly strict hiring standards is a watershed event.

Together, we can make this a better world.”
