"Red serge" at Trudeau's wedding?

A watchful CTFer has noted that CBC footage of Justin Trudeau’s wedding shows RCMP officers in traditional “red serge” uniforms. Are our Mounties simply taxpayer-funded mascots for political elite social events?

We have a call in to the RCMP to find exactly what their policies are for loaning out national symbols to celebrities.

May be I can borrow a couple of Mounties for my eldest boy's first communion coming up. Do let us know what they say, please.

PS. Their image was already contracted to Mickey Mouse, so pimping RCs to the Trudeaus for a wedding could be regarded as a slight move up. Maybe it's a step down.
