Tuesday, 10 June 1919 - A few good men

The following ad is in today's Winnipeg Free Press. Note that you apply to the now deposed Chief Constable !

Despite the offer to re-hire police officers if thy denounce their association and refuse to ever strike, only 22 of the original members sign back onto the force. In the night a new force of special constables, referred to as "specials", are sworn in.
