Project Rainbow is a National incentive created by Corporal Brendan Harkness who was looking for a simple way to demonstrate that the RCMP is as inclusive and diverse as the communities it serves. He believed that it would be profoundly meaningful to employees, as well as the LGBTQ2S+ community, if every detachment were to prominently display a Pride Rainbow sticker. He called the initiative Project Rainbow.
The Sunshine Coast RCMP is a proud supporter of the LGBTQ2S+ community on the Sunshine Coast and will now be displaying a Pride Flag sticker and a declarative sticker at their Gibsons and Sechelt Detachments.
The sticker will be on permanent display near the entrance and includes 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.
Detachment Commander Staff Sergeant Hallam says
The public should feel supported by Canada’s national police service and the Sunshine Coast RCMP will continue to support people who are openly of the LGBTQ2S+ community. S/Sgt Hallam later adds
Everyone should have the right to live their lives free of discrimination and hatred.
