Anti-Asian attacks rise in Canada amid pandemic | AFP

Vancouver resident Trixie Ling recalls her disgust and anger after a passing stranger taunted her with racial and sexual slurs in early May. Then he spat on her face. “I was feeling a mixture of shock, the disgust, the sadness that it happened to me,” says Ling in an interview with AFP near the scene. “But I knew I’m not the only one this has happened to.” Ling is indeed not alone. A new survey obtained by AFP suggests the problem is deeply rooted: One in four British Columbians of East Asian descent said someone in their home had been targeted with “racial slurs or insults” since March, according to the ResearchCo poll of 1,600 adults.

How Canada’s Iconic Mountie Uniforms Are Made | Boot Camp

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, or “Mounties,” are known for their iconic uniforms that feature the iconic scarlet tunic referred to as the “Red Serge.”

Senior video correspondent Graham Flanagan visited the RCMP Academy Depot Division in Regina, Saskatchewan where future Mounties are trained and issued their uniform “kit.”

While modern Mounties’ everyday uniforms are more in line with standard police attire, the wool and satin-lined Red Serge is still used for ceremonial events. Each cadet gets fitted for their tunic about halfway through training.

We visited the tailor shop where a team of 20 tailors performs the alterations for the approximately 1,000 cadets that graduate from the Academy each year. We also stopped by the leather shop, where leather crafters custom-fit each pair of high-leather Strathcona boots before being issued to the cadets.
