In the 1930 Canadian General Election, Mackenzie King`s Liberal government was ousted from power and Conservative Calgarian R.B. Bennett assumed the presidency as Canada`s eleventh prime minister. Bennett appointed General James Howden MacBrien as COMMISSIONER of the RCMP and enthusiastically supported the idea of a single national police authority that is becoming more efficient with economies of scale over broken provincial police forces. In 1917 Bennett had publicly opposed the NWMP`s withdrawal from the prairie provinces as a member of Prime Minister Borden`s caucus and saw the RCMP as an opportunity to maintain federal control over police work, particularly in the area of the labour movement and left-wing political parties.  Brownlee recognized the opportunity and faced considerable financial pressure on Commissioner MacBrien on December 3, 1931 to seek a new federal treaty.  Bennett`s government in 1931-32 provided Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island with good conditions for policing that encouraged the provinces to support the rural growth of the RCMP. Alberta was awarded a contract that required the province to pay $225,000 in the first year. and $250,000 for the next four years in return for 200-225 RCMP services, which represented half of the cost of maintaining the APA.  “Even if you end up spending a little more, the hope would be that if you judge him provincially and directly accountable to the local provincial police authorities, you will get a police service that is tailored to the preferences, needs and standards of your territory,” he says.

It was replaced in 1932 by the RCMP as a cost-saving measure during the Great Depression, according to the Archives Society of Alberta. According to Robert Gordon, professor of criminology at Simon Fraser University, part of the appeal is part of the appeal for a province that wants to dissociate itself from Ottawa. The RCMP has serious problems and public trust challenges. According to a Global News report, more than $220 million has been spent over the past two decades, from sexual harassment complaints to human rights complaints and federal investigations into nepotism issues, workplace harassment and lawn warfare with other police departments.
