NANAIMO – Nanaimo Mounties invited Joy Livingstone to the detachment for a photo

Canadian citizenship was the culmination of a lifetime dream for Livingstone, as was having her picture taken with Canada’s iconic police force.

Since there was no Mountie available for her citizenship ceremony, Nanaimo Mounties invited Livingstone to the detachment for a photo.
