Richmond RCMP are saying a heartfelt thank you to the city’s frontline workers.
“COVID-19 has elevated our landscape beyond what we could even imagine, and has placed enormous strains on each and every one of us,” said Richmond RCMP in a release.
“Those that care for us when we are unwell, our community health care workers, face those stresses daily, now more than ever.”
Mounties drew a series of colourful heart-shaped drawings – admittedly with some help – to decorate the main windows of the Richmond RCMP detachment to show their appreciation, noting in the release that the “power of art is known to help the spirit and the soul.”
“We’d love to say that we have some mad art skills, but alas, we had to outsource some (okay, lots) of those skills to our families and friends,” reads the release.
RCMP said that while they aren’t going “challenge Mr. van Gogh anytime soon,” they are “filled with pride” for the drawings, which are prominently displayed alongside the RCMP’s logo.
“We at Richmond Detachment salute all the health care workers and send a special thank you to all those working in our community,” said RCMP.
