Charlottetown Coun. Bob Doiron must be feeling somewhat satisfied today. It took two years or more, but the city’s police department is now on a level playing field with other police forces across the province. Santa Claus delivered over the Christmas holidays.A year ago Coun. Doiron went public about the need for city police to be armed with high-powered carbine rifles. He was getting frustrated. More than a year before he raised the issue at the Jan. 2016 council meeting, he was lobbying to have every police vehicle equipped with long-range rifles.http://www.theguardian.pe.ca/opinion/2017/1/11/editorial--city-police-ups-firepower---and-about-time.html
