RCMP unhappy with Olympic Closing Ceremony

I wondered how the RCMP was going to react to their portrayal in the Closing Ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics. I watched the show on TV with a friend in Portland, Oregon and we both thought it was a bit on the cheesy side...and she's Canadian. The show may have played well in a nightclub, but as a global television broadcast, I give it a big thumbs down.

My least favorite part was the Michael Buble routine. Although I like the Burnaby boy's voice, I'm not a big fan of his on-stage presence, and the RCMP routine made him look pretty silly.

Well, the RCMP didn't like it either, as reported by CBC News: Olympic show mini-skirt irks RCMP.
