Re: New Sidney North Saanich RCMP commander sets sights on big picture, March 26.

As a criminal justice student, advocate of feminine rights and long-term resident of Central Saanich, I am pleased to hear of the new detachment commander for the Sidney North Saanich RCMP, Anna Marie Mallard.

It is encouraging for youth to see a female leader, specifically someone who states that she is dedicated to positive youth restorative justice.

Small communities such as ours rely on this mentality as our youth deserve role models who believe in their ability to become responsible civilians.

I would like to see a continued effort from female officers dedicating time to empowering young girls in our local schools to pursue positions of authority.
