NORTH LETHBRID6E MO-TIRES 305-13th St. North Phone 327-3181 The North West Mounted Police came to Alberta a hundred years ago They built outposts that grew into towns and cities. They brought law and order to the west The Mounties paved the way for our pioneers. Unfortunately, they didn't pave the roads. When Greyhound started getting people together in Alberta, we faced formidable odds. Back in 1930, some roads were little better than the old patrol trails. In winter, Greyhound buses sometimes had to plow the roads themselves Right from the start, Greyhound travel was a family affair When a mudhole blocked the way, the passengers rolled up their sleeves and helped push the bus through Just as they did in the old stage coach days. Greyhound travel is a lot easier today. But we're proud that our routes often cross the paths of the early Mountie patrols This year, our province celebrates 100 years of Mounted Police service. At Greyhound Canada we're proud that our origins and our home base are here in Alberta GREYHOUND CANADA Greyhound Lines of Canada Ltd. years clpinq Albertanv- 1332 ;
