about

Boxer. Pilot. Roughrider. Mountie. One man lived it all. As a young man, Constable McNeil spent his summers on the Mackenzie River and his winters crisscrossing Canada's North on dogsled patrols for as many as 700 miles, earning $2 a day, plus "food, uniform, underwear and toothbrushes." He was one of the first pilots in the RCMP "Air"Division.

In the Second World War, he flew with the RCAF, and rose to the rank of Wing Commander. In peacetime, he led the RCMP Musical Ride across North America to Hollywood and made friends of movie stars. A devoted family man and dedicated community leader, he made a difference in every posting-and left a lasting legacy.

Editorial Reviews

“Stirling McNeil’s life … was one of incredible breadth of activity and geography, and through it all there was a remarkable level of caring, humility, acceptance of others, loyalty, dedication to duty, good citizenship, good humour, and a truly remarkable level of ethical conduct.” —Supt. E.C. MacAulay (Rtd), BBA, MBA, LLB
