The Mounties may have been our first official military, but they haven't been for a long time. Today they are a corrupt federal organisation. As a police force, only the Ontario Provincial Police, and maybe some municipal Quebec police forces, are more corrupt.
As for China's anti-satellite satellite... kind of obsolete, in some ways. With all our fibre-optic cables and drones we use today, satellites are not the wave of the future.
