In response to the lawsuit launched (and blogged here on May 9) against the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, and Golden and District Search and Rescue for failing to competently initiate a search and rescue (SAR) operation, three SAR teams suspended service. 

The lawsuit is the first of its kind in Canada and has SAR unpaid professionals (volunteers) on edge and government bureaucrats scrambling for a solution.  Officials insist the public is not at risk because of the service withdrawals.

This is going to get messy.  Stay tuned.
