Canada is famous for its Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). Its peculiarity lies in the fact that it combines international, provincial, federal and municipal components in its structure. Police in Canada is considered as one of the major national symbols. It was established back in 1873. At that time, the Canadians fought for the western part of the state.
Among other items, the everyday uniform of police officers include the mounted police hat and the bright red-and-blue uniform is worn on holidays, for official ceremonies or during trips to other countries. The most memorable and unusual event with Royal Canadian Mounted Police is a parade called the Musical Ride, which takes place in the capital of Canada. Initially, the event was intended to demonstrate a high level of riding of academy graduates, but, after some time, it turned into an ordinary ceremony. The parade was founded in 1876. At that time, the event was held in the city of Regina. Now the ceremony is held in the capital, in the city of Ottawa on Canada Day.
