Personal Recollections of John HART by Supt. Ric HALL , #24394 / O.1330 John Hart, Reg # 20290/O.160, was born in Guildford, Surrey, England, in 1933 and was raised in the village of Sutton Green. The following bio was written up in a newsletter where John now resides due to the onset of Alzheimer’s: “He was the second youngest of 14 children . He went to Kingsfield County Secondary school. John said the one thing he remembers about his childhood growing up with so many siblings, “You learned how to duck and run!” Sadly, John is the last surviving member of his immediate family . John’s father had moved to Manitoba from England as a hardworking young man in the early 1900’s, encouraged by the opportunity to build a homestead in Manitoba as per a Canadian government land grant settlement program. His mother had moved there from the Isle of Lewis in Scotland, and they met and married in Canada. The land they’d been assigned proved very rocky and unsuitable to support their family, and times were very hard during the depression years. After struggling for years to try and make a go of it, his parents and most of the older children moved back to England prior to the Second World War. John and his youngest sister were thus the only children in the family not born in Canada. Eleven of the siblings served in the Canadian and British militaries over the years; several during World War II. One was killed during service, three were wounded, and one was a POW in the Pacific. John’s father died of a heart attack during this time, when John was eight years old, and one of his teenaged brothers died suddenly not long afterwards. In the years following the war, John’s oldest siblings helped his mother relocate back to Canada with the younger children and they stayed in Winnipeg with his oldest sister’s family for a time. When John was 17 years of age, two of his older brothers and friends had signed up with the Canadian military to go to the Korean War and he wanted to go with them. He went through all the preparations, and remembers all the vaccinations he had to get. He remembers having to walk through a line with nurses on each side of him, getting a series of needles jabbed in both arms as he went. John was boarding the ship in Seattle to go to war in Korea when they found out he was under age. They pulled him off and he was later sent to Europe to serve with NATO instead, primarily in Holland and Germany. When you enrolled in the military at that time you had to sign up for 3 years of service. After he completed his 3 years, he signed up for another 3 years, and served for a total of 6 years. Following his military service, he decided he wanted to become a member of the RCMP. He was sent for training at “Depot” in Regina and his first posting was in Fredericton, NB. This is where John met his wife Sharon, who had just started working as a stenographer there. He had gone into the HQ building one day and the girls were whispering and giggling, he didn’t know it was about him. He later found out that Sharon wanted to meet him, and says the rest was history! . He had some memorable experiences over the years, including search and rescue operations, serving as the NCO i/c Drill Staff at “Depot” and taught drill to the RCMP’s very first female troop. Leading the RCMP Ceremonial Troop to open the Commonwealth Games in Edmonton , all of the operational police work, and meeting and getting to know such a wide variety of people. The family had been posted to central Alberta briefly during the 60’s, and John loved the province and chose to seek a return posting later in his career. John enjoyed living in and exploring every part of Canada, and loved meeting and learning about people along the way. He had an excellent memory, and took the time to get to know people so that he could always greet them by name when they met again. His career advanced to the rank of Inspector, and he retired in his chosen home province of Alberta in 1986. John touched many lives during his service, and his daughter has had countless people remember him fondly to her over the years since his retirement. John used to enjoy taking dance lessons, loved playing bridge and cribbage, and his favorite things to do included fishing and camping. He had a terrific sense of humour and loved a good practical joke – having more than a few played on him in return by friends, colleagues and family over the years! He remembers good times with Sharon and friends at lakes in northeastern Alberta, as he had been stationed in St. Paul for several years. His favorite meal is steak and mushrooms, and his lifelong drink of choice a cold rum and coke. . Some personal memories of my new boss on the Drill Staff in 1974. “It seems we worked together for a long time but it was only a year and half, packed with a lot of good memories. When we were transferred to “Depot” John’s wife Sharon was our real estate agent. During the house hunting trip from hell we met John briefly, certainly a pleasant enough man. John Hart, in my books, was a prince of man. But in the Drill Hall and on the parade square it was a different guy. John had the craggy looks of a maritime man, because he was a maritime man. Suzan was scared of him. A couple of times Suzan and little David had come down to watch the Sgt. Majors parade and she did not want to meet John, of course she had on our HHT, but his public persona was not what she was used to in our RCMP friends. John had two of his own sons at home and a daughter, so he had no shortage of kids. John, took a liking to our David and would swing by our little duplex and take David out for ice cream. Nice man. This was a good deal for Suzan because she was now expecting our second kid. There were lots of stories that came about the “Depot” Sergeant Major, Bill Pomfert, but the best one had to be: One day on parade, summer, so we’re in shirt sleeves. The Drill Staff gets the parade of recruits all formed up ready for the Sgt. Major. Bill lived at the rear of the parade square past the Post Hospital. So, we would wait for him to walk down the sidewalk towards the square. On this particular day John Hart comes up to me and says let’s go to the back of the parade square and watch. It is a hot day and the sprinklers have been put out. The sprinklers were the big jobs that went halfway and then quickly swung back, so if you timed it right you could get through and not get wet. Timing was critical. The Sgt. Major was apparently not very good at timing. John and I are at the back of the parade and watch. Here he comes, chewing on his tooth pick as he came down the side walk. Swoosh, he gets the full force of the sprinkler. Shirt is soaked. S/M comes to the rear of the formed-up parade and John marches up to him and halts in front of the S/M, “good afternoon Sir, you appear to be a little wet”. “Jesus Christ, Sgt. Someone turned the Gawd damn sprinkler on me!” “that’s really too bad Sir”. How John kept a straight face I will never know. Women were being introduced into the RCMP in 1974. There was a lot of hype about this first crew. Those on high had decided that in all the physical subjects, PT, Swimming and Drill, the unit Senior NCOs would instruct the female troop. The day of arrival has come, women are arriving from the airport. John Hart and I were walking out of the “C” Block, the Drill office was in the basement. This little female person was struggling up the stairs with two big suitcases. When she asked us if we could help her with her bags, John, bless his heart, told her “you’re in a man’s outfit now lady, you gotta learn how to handle things” and off we went, chuckling to ourselves. Set the tone right away. Our little shack on Arthur Street was not in the most exquisite area of Regina, but it was close to work. One evening I attended a Cpls Mess Meeting and it was pissing down rain. No big deal. During the meeting guys were getting called from home and leaving. Pussy whipped, hah, hah. “Ric, the phone is for you”, oops, be careful of what you say. My beloved is calling and informs me that we have water in our basement. Where the bloody hell can that come from? We live on the prairies. I leave immediately and get home, yup, there is definitely water in the basement. It is clear and just covers the floor. Unfortunately, we had just finished one half of the basement for a TV room and it was carpeted. We run around and lift things up off the floor. Water gets a little higher. Lift things a little higher one more time. It keeps on rising. This is not looking good. At the time we did not realize a tornado had passed through Regina and the downpour had tasked the sewage system to the max. We had one of those sump areas in the corner of the basement and that is where the water is coming from. The water is now getting a little scummy looking. Not good. Basically, it keeps on rising and getting dirtier. It is now panic time. I get a call from John Hart. “How are you doing, got any water?” – “Yup” – “I’m fine, I’ll be right over”. God bless him. John has to drive by “Depot” so he stops in and finds one of my troops and tells them to get their ass over to my place. John arrives with, give or take 32 guys, they empty everything out of my basement and put it in the back yard. Still raining but at least it is clean. The basement keeps on filling. Fortunately, with those troops of 32 you seem to have someone who is knowledgeable in almost everything. There we are roaming around in knee high water and the electricity and gas are still on. Someone knew how to take care of that. This is like around 2:00 am by now. The boys hit the street and go from house to house to see if anyone needs assistance. The best in people, it was quite a thing. We eventually went to bed with the water still rising in the basement and it was dirty. Get up in the morning and take a look down stairs and it’s still there. The water level has increased a little bit more. My RCMP Centennial rifle is still hanging on the wall downstairs, got to get it in case the water level comes up. Put on a bathing suit and an old pair of high brown boots and go down stairs. The water flows over the top of my boots very quickly and it is about waist high. It is cold and there is toilet paper and human waste floating in the water. Ugh! Save the rifle! John is back in the a.m. with another troop. Training was canceled as so many instructors’ homes had been hit with flooding. He has also procured a gas pump from the “Depot”. So, we start pumping the water out, it was slowly dropping on its own, put the pump helped it along. Once the water level dropped the troop started to clean and disinfect everything. By the end of the afternoon, except for the soggy carpet you would never have known what had happened. The boys again went to see if any of the neighbors needed assistance. A couple of houses down there was a guy who was a Bruno Gerusey look alike who not that long before had just finished his whole basement. I ask him if he needs some help, I got the guys here to give him a hand. “Nope”, as he stood on his porch with a glass of sherry in his hand. OK, fine. I cannot say enough about the help those young guys gave us. I ripped the carpet out it was unsalvageable and threw it in the back yard. I talked with John on a couple of occasions after he left Regina. He went to St Paul in “K” Division as the 2 i/c of the detachment. There was a S/Sgt. in charge who did not like John, because he was one of those “Depot” pukes. This was not an uncommon theme for “Depot” instructors when they went back into the field. . Aside from me, “Depot” instructors were usually a notch above the rest, energetic, some pretty bright and lots to offer when they went back in the field. In the end they usually surfaced to the top and did well. Anyway, back to John. Unknown to me John had gone through the commissioning process and was successful. When he was made Inspector, he was appointed the OC of St Paul Subdivision. The S/Sgt. who had been giving him a hard time was now reporting to John. We had a laugh over that. Karma is a wonderful thing. We ran into each other a couple of times when I went back to “K” Division after “Depot”. He was on an appeal board when I was given a “reprimand” for the loss money, which had been stolen from my police car during a street fight. A long story, but I won my appeal. He was also one of two Incident Commanders during an ERT operation. The first death by ERT in the Force happened. It is another very long story. You will have to buy my book to get the full details.

Souvenirs personnels de John HART par le surintendant. Ric HALL , #24394 / O.1330 John Hart, R é g # 20290/O.160, est né à Guildford, Surrey, Angleterre, en 1933 et a grandi dans le village de Sutton Green. La biographie suivante a été écrite dans un bulletin d’information où John réside maintenant en raison de l’apparition de la maladie d’Alzheimer : ‘Il était le deuxième plus jeune de 14 enfants . Il est allé à l’école secondaire du comté de Kingsfield. John a dit la seule chose dont il se souvient de son enfance avec tant de frères et sœurs, “Tu as appris à esquiver et à courir!” Malheureusement, John est le dernier membre survivant de sa famille immédiate .’ Le père de John avait quitté l’Angleterre pour le Manitoba alors qu’il était un jeune travailleur acharné au début des années 1900, encouragé par la possibilité de construire une propriété familiale au Manitoba dans le cadre d’un programme d’établissement de concessions foncières du gouvernement canadien. Sa mère y avait déménagé de l’île de Lewis en Écosse, et ils se sont rencontrés et se sont mariés au Canada. La terre qui leur avait été attribuée s’est avérée très rocailleuse et impropre à la subsistance de leur famille, et les temps ont été très durs pendant les années de dépression. Après avoir lutté pendant des années pour tenter de s’en sortir, ses parents et la plupart des enfants plus âgés sont retournés en Angleterre avant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. John et sa plus jeune sœur étaient donc les seuls enfants de la famille à ne pas être nés au Canada. Onze des frères et sœurs ont servi dans les forces armées canadiennes et britanniques au fil des ans; plusieurs pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Un a été tué pendant le service, trois ont été blessés et un était un prisonnier de guerre dans le Pacifique. Le père de John est décédé d’une crise cardiaque pendant cette période, alors que John avait huit ans, et l’un de ses frères adolescents est décédé subitement peu de temps après. Dans les années qui ont suivi la guerre, les frères et sœurs aînés de John ont aidé sa mère à revenir au Canada avec les plus jeunes enfants et ils sont restés à Winnipeg avec la famille de sa sœur aînée pendant un certain temps. Lorsque John avait 17 ans, deux de ses frères aînés et amis s’étaient enrôlés dans l’armée canadienne pour participer à la guerre de Corée et il voulait les accompagner. Il a passé en revue tous les préparatifs et se souvient de tous les vaccins qu’il a dû se faire. Il se souvient avoir dû traverser une file d’infirmières de chaque côté de lui, se faisant piquer une série d’aiguilles dans les deux bras au fur et à mesure. John montait à bord du navire à Seattle pour faire la guerre en Corée quand ils ont découvert qu’il était mineur. Ils l’ont retiré et il a ensuite été envoyé en Europe pour servir avec l’OTAN à la place, principalement en Hollande et en Allemagne. Lorsque vous vous êtes enrôlé dans l’armée à cette époque, vous deviez vous inscrire pour 3 ans de service. Après avoir terminé ses 3 ans, il s’est engagé pour 3 ans supplémentaires et a servi pendant 6 ans au total. Après son service militaire, il a décidé qu’il voulait devenir membre de la GRC. Il a été envoyé en formation au “Dépôt” à Regina et sa première affectation a été à Fredericton, au Nouveau-Brunswick. C’est là que John a rencontré sa femme Sharon, qui venait de commencer à travailler comme sténographe là-bas. Il était entré un jour dans le bâtiment du QG et les filles chuchotaient et riaient, il ne savait pas que c’était à propos de lui. Il a découvert plus tard que Sharon voulait le rencontrer, et dit que le reste appartenait à l’histoire ! . Il a vécu des expériences mémorables au fil des ans, notamment des opérations de recherche et de sauvetage, en tant qu’état-major d’exercices sous-officiers i/c au “Dépôt” et a enseigné l’exercice à la toute première troupe féminine de la GRC. À la tête de la troupe de cérémonie de la GRC pour l’ouverture des Jeux du Commonwealth à Edmonton , tout le travail opérationnel de la police, et rencontrer et apprendre à connaître une si grande variété de personnes. La famille avait été brièvement affectée au centre de l’Alberta au cours des années 60, et John aimait la province et a choisi de chercher une affectation de retour plus tard dans sa carrière. John aimait vivre et explorer toutes les régions du Canada, et aimait rencontrer et apprendre des gens en cours de route. Il avait une excellente mémoire et prenait le temps d’apprendre à connaître les gens afin de pouvoir toujours les saluer par leur nom lorsqu’ils se reverraient. Sa carrière a progressé jusqu’au grade d’inspecteur et il a pris sa retraite dans la province de son choix, l’Alberta, en 1986. John a touché de nombreuses vies au cours de son service, et d’innombrables personnes se souviennent de lui avec émotion au fil des années depuis sa retraite. John aimait prendre des cours de danse, adorait jouer au bridge et au cribbage, et ses activités préférées étaient la pêche et le camping. Il avait un sens de l’humour formidable et adorait les bonnes blagues pratiques – en avoir plus que quelques-unes jouées contre lui en retour par ses amis, ses collègues et sa famille au fil des ans ! Il se souvient de bons moments avec Sharon et ses amis aux lacs du nord-est de l’Alberta, car il était en poste à Saint-Paul depuis plusieurs années. Son plat préféré est le steak et les champignons, et sa boisson de choix un rhum froid et un coca. . Quelques souvenirs personnels de mon nouveau patron au sein de l’état-major en 1974. « Il semble que nous ayons travaillé ensemble pendant longtemps, mais cela n’a duré qu’un an et demi, plein de bons souvenirs. Lorsque nous avons été transférés au « Dépôt », la femme de John, Sharon, était notre agent immobilier. Pendant le voyage de recherche de maison de l’enfer, nous avons brièvement rencontré John, certainement un homme assez agréable. John Hart, dans mes livres, était un prince de l’homme. Mais dans la salle d’exercice et sur le terrain de parade, c’était un type différent. John avait l’allure escarpée d’un marin, parce qu’il était un marin. Suzan avait peur de lui. À quelques reprises, Suzan et le petit David étaient descendus pour regarder le Sgt. Les majors ont défilé et elle ne voulait pas rencontrer John, bien sûr qu’elle avait sur notre VRD, mais sa personnalité publique n’était pas celle à laquelle elle était habituée chez nos amis de la GRC. John avait deux de ses propres fils à la maison et une fille, il ne manquait donc pas d’enfants. John, a pris goût à notre David et passait par notre petit duplex et emmenait David prendre une glace. Gentil homme. C’était une bonne affaire pour Suzan car elle attendait maintenant notre deuxième enfant. Il y avait beaucoup d’histoires sur le sergent-major du “Dépôt”, Bill Pomfert, mais la meilleure devait être : un jour à la parade, l’été, alors nous sommes en manches de chemise. Le personnel de forage obtient le défilé de recrues toutes formées pour le Sgt. Majeur. Bill habitait à l’arrière de la place de parade devant l’hôpital de la poste. Donc, nous attendrions qu’il descende le trottoir vers la place. Ce jour-là, John Hart s’approche de moi et me dit d’aller au fond de la place de parade et de regarder. Il fait chaud et les arroseurs ont été éteints. Les arroseurs étaient les gros travaux qui allaient à mi-chemin puis revenaient rapidement, donc si vous chronométriez bien, vous pouviez passer et ne pas vous mouiller. Le timing était critique. Le sergent. Major n’était apparemment pas très doué pour le timing. John et moi sommes à l’arrière du défilé et regardons. Le voici, mâchonnant son cure-dent alors qu’il descendait le trottoir. Swoosh, il obtient toute la force de l’arroseur. La chemise est trempée. S/M arrive à l’arrière du défilé formé et John marche vers lui et s’arrête devant le S/M, “bon après-midi monsieur, vous semblez être un peu mouillé”. “Jésus-Christ, Sgt. Quelqu’un a tourné le foutu arroseur Gawd sur moi ! » “c’est vraiment dommage monsieur”. Comment John a gardé un visage impassible, je ne le saurai jamais. Les femmes ont été introduites dans la GRC en 1974. Il y avait beaucoup de battage médiatique au sujet de ce premier équipage. Ceux d’en haut avaient décidé que dans toutes les matières physiques, physiothérapie, natation et exercice, les sous-officiers supérieurs de l’unité instruiraient la troupe féminine. Le jour de l’arrivée est venu, les femmes arrivent de l’aéroport. John Hart et moi sortions du bloc “C”, le bureau de Drill était au sous-sol. Cette petite femme se débattait dans les escaliers avec deux grosses valises. Lorsqu’elle nous a demandé si nous pouvions l’aider avec ses sacs, John, bénissez son cœur, lui a dit “tu es dans une tenue d’homme maintenant madame, tu dois apprendre à gérer les choses” et nous sommes partis en riant tout seuls. Donnez le ton tout de suite. Notre petite cabane sur Arthur Street n’était pas dans le quartier le plus exquis de Regina, mais elle était proche du travail. Un soir, j’ai assisté à une réunion du mess des Cap. et il pleuvait à pisser. Pas grave. Pendant la réunion, les gars étaient appelés de chez eux et partaient. Chatte fouettée, hah, hah. “Ric, le téléphone est pour toi”, oups, fais attention à ce que tu dis. Mon bien-aimé appelle et m’informe que nous avons de l’eau dans notre sous-sol. D’où diable cela peut-il venir ? Nous vivons dans les prairies. Je pars tout de suite et rentre chez moi, ouaip, il y a bien de l’eau au sous-sol. Il est clair et couvre juste le sol. Malheureusement, nous venions de terminer la moitié du sous-sol pour une salle de télévision et elle était recouverte de moquette. Nous courons partout et soulevons des objets du sol. L’eau monte un peu plus haut. Soulevez les choses un peu plus haut une fois de plus. Il continue de monter. Cela n’a pas l’air bien. À l’époque, nous n’avions pas réalisé qu’une tornade avait traversé Regina et que l’averse avait sollicité le système d’égout au maximum. Nous avions un de ces puisards dans le coin du sous-sol et c’est de là que vient l’eau. L’eau devient maintenant un peu crasseuse. Pas bon. Fondamentalement, il continue de monter et de devenir de plus en plus sale. C’est maintenant l’heure de la panique. Je reçois un appel de John Hart. “Comment vas-tu, tu as de l’eau ? “ – “Ouais” – “Je vais bien, j’arrive tout de suite”. Dieu vous protège lui. John doit passer par “D è p ô t alors il s’arrête et trouve l’un de mes soldats et leur dit de se mettre le cul chez moi. John arrive avec, à plus ou moins 32 gars, ils vident tout de mon sous-sol et le mettent dans la cour arrière. Il pleut toujours mais au moins c’est propre. Le sous-sol continue de se remplir. Heureusement, avec ces troupes de 32, vous semblez avoir quelqu’un qui connaît presque tout. Là, nous errons dans l’eau jusqu’aux genoux et l’électricité et le gaz sont toujours allumés. Quelqu’un savait comment s’en occuper. C’est comme environ 2 heures du matin maintenant. Les garçons descendent dans la rue et vont de maison en maison pour voir si quelqu’un a besoin d’aide. Le meilleur des gens, c’était quelque chose. Nous sommes finalement allés nous coucher avec l’eau qui montait toujours au sous-sol et c’était sale. Levez-vous le matin et jetez un œil en bas des escaliers et il est toujours là. Le niveau de l’eau a augmenté un peu plus. Mon fusil Centennial de la GRC est toujours accroché au mur en bas, je dois le récupérer au cas où le niveau d’eau monterait. Mettez un maillot de bain et une vieille paire de bottes hautes marron et descendez les escaliers. L’eau s’écoule très rapidement sur le dessus de mes bottes et elle arrive à peu près à la taille. Il fait froid et il y a du papier toilette et des déchets humains qui flottent dans l’eau. Pouah! Sauvez le fusil ! John est de retour le matin avec une autre troupe. La formation a été annulée car de nombreux domiciles d’instructeurs ont été touchés par les inondations. Il s’est également procuré une pompe à essence auprès du « Dépôt ». Alors, nous avons commencé à pomper l’eau, elle tombait lentement toute seule, la pompe l’a aidé. Une fois que le niveau d’eau a baissé, la troupe a commencé à tout nettoyer et désinfecter. À la fin de l’après-midi, à part le tapis détrempé, vous n’auriez jamais su ce qui s’était passé. Les garçons sont de nouveau allés voir si l’un des voisins avait besoin d’aide. Quelques maisons là-bas, il y avait un gars qui ressemblait à Bruno Gerusey qui, peu de temps auparavant, venait de terminer tout son sous-sol. Je lui demande s’il a besoin d’aide, j’ai des gars ici pour lui donner un coup de main. “Non”, alors qu’il se tenait sur son porche avec un verre de sherry à la main. OK bien. Je ne peux pas en dire assez sur l’aide que ces jeunes nous ont apportée. J’ai arraché le tapis, il était irrécupérable et je l’ai jeté dans la cour arrière. J’ai parlé avec John à quelques reprises après qu’il ait quitté Regina. Il est allé à St Paul dans la division “K” en tant que 2 i/c du détachement. Il y avait un S/Sgt. responsable qui n’aimait pas John, parce qu’il était l’un de ces vomissures “D é p ô t”. Ce n’était pas un thème rare pour les instructeurs “Dépôt” lorsqu’ils retournaient sur le terrain. . À part moi, les instructeurs “Dépôt” étaient généralement un cran au-dessus des autres, énergiques, certains assez brillants et beaucoup à offrir lorsqu’ils retournaient sur le terrain. À la fin, ils ont généralement fait surface au sommet et ont bien fait. Quoi qu’il en soit, revenons à John. À mon insu, John avait suivi le processus de mise en service et avait réussi.

From moonshine to drugs: Changing times for RCMP NEWS SEP 18, 2014 BY DURHAMREGION.COM Staff Sgt. Ed Moreland, right, and Cpl. Judith Falbo at the RCMP’s Kitchener detachment, which is set to celebrate 60 years. – Peter Lee,Record staff Nelson Craig: “Being an RCMP officer was a dream come true.” – Peter Lee,Record staff 1 / 2
WATERLOO REGION — When John Nelson Craig was an RCMP commanding officer in Kitchener, he busted moonshine stills, stopped producers of counterfeit ration coupons and tracked local Communist party sympathizers. That was 1954. Six decades later, Craig, now 94, will be among a group to be honoured at the 60th anniversary of the RCMP detachment in Kitchener at a ceremony next week. The RCMP is also marking 40 years of including women in the police service. “Being an RCMP officer was a dream come true,” Craig said. “I’m very proud of my service. I worked hard and it was a challenge.” Today, the RCMP still focuses on intelligence but things have shifted, said Craig, who moved to the London RCMP office and then Toronto before retiring in 1965. He worked for the federal government on implementing the Canada Pension Plan, retiring again in 1983. “We didn’t have the drugs they have now,” Craig said. Craig recalls investigating a moonshine still at a barn in the Chicopee area. He and another officer tracked a fellow who that day didn’t go straight home after work but made a pit stop at the barn. They followed him and found 100 gallons of alcohol and about 30 45-gallon drums of mash. Today, the Kitchener detachment concentrates on serious and organized crime — many of the investigations drug related — said current commanding officer Staff Sgt. Ed Moreland. “It’s beyond the street level. We tend to come into the mix at a higher level, the upper echelon of criminals,” he said. This summer, the local office was part of a team of police services dedicated to eradicating outdoor marijuana grow operations. Police seized 4,000 marijuana plants and found 80 grow sites, from Grand Bend to Walkerton. In 1954, the RCMP had three officers and was located in a three-storey house on Frederick Street. Now, the RCMP has 20 officers at its offices off New Dundee Road with another 12 officers working out of the detachment for other projects. Their jurisdiction, covering 14,800 square kilometres, reaches west to London, east to Milton, south to Stoney Creek and north to Tobermory. Moreland, newly-minted in Kitchener, said investigations can shift gears quickly with a phone call from head office. Organized crime ranges from the importation of cocaine via transport trucks, importing goods, illegal gambling to human trafficking. Moreland said a good rapport with police services in Waterloo Region and Guelph, along with the Ontario Provincial Police, is essential. “We don’t have the first-contact advantage. The regional service gets the calls,” he said. “We need each other to work together.” In a joint partnership, the RCMP and the Waterloo Regional Police Service has officers who work together in freeing young girls from human trafficking. Cpl. Judith Falbo, an RCMP officer for 28 years, three of them in Kitchener, is one of four women who work in the Kitchener detachment. She recalls her first post after training at the Toronto airport in 1988 and meeting her boss. “I was sitting in his office and he said, ‘Don’t get me wrong. I love women but you have no business here,’ ” she said. “I remember looking at him and thinking, ‘Oh my God, what just happened here,'” said Falbo, 52. A few years later when her three-year-old daughter was in hospital with pneumonia and she called her supervisor, “he said, ‘You get to work. There are doctors and nurses there to take care of her.'” “It was a man’s world. You felt guilty for being a mother,” she said. Thankfully, attitudes have changed and the RCMP, like many police services, strives to hire and keep women on their roster. The RCMP is currently on a hiring blitz and hopes to employ 960 cadets over the next three years. “I was very comfortable with who I was and what I brought to the table,” said Falbo. “Gender stops being a deterrent.” The public is invited to the 60th anniversary open house on Sept. 25 at the RCMP detachment, 17 Executive Pl., from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
Man who went into cardiac arrest at St. Boniface Hospital’s ER taken off life support Social Sharing Terence Gee, 71, was unmonitored in the ER and waited 4 hours for care. He died on Friday. Peggy Lam · CBC News · Posted: Aug 16, 2021 5:00 AM CT | Last Updated: August 16 Terence Gee, 71, is pictured in the middle with his wife, children and grandchildren. Gee passed away on Friday after being taken off life support. Toivi Penner said goodbye to her father Terence Gee on early Friday evening, after doctors said he lost too much oxygen to his brain and will no longer have cognitive function. “It was just sad … it shouldn’t have happened this way for him,” she said.  This comes after Gee suffered from cardiac arrest on Tuesday evening after waiting four hours for care at St. Boniface Hospital’s emergency department.  A doctor and a nurse have told her he was unmonitored while he was waiting in the EMS area, Penner said. St. Boniface could divert some incoming patients to other hospitals in light of long wait times: memo Patient went into cardiac arrest after waiting 4 hours at St. Boniface ER, hospital staff say “He served his country for 34 years, this feels like a disservice to him. If he would have had a family member with him or been on a monitor, we feel he would still be with us,” said Penner.  Gee’s death comes in the midst of a severe staff shortage at St. Boniface Hospital. In recent weeks, emergency staff there have sounded the alarm on dangerous ER wait times and dire shortage of beds.  Penner said her father was a retired RCMP officer. He struggled with diabetes and kidney failure.  “I think we all fully expected that when he died, it would be from an infection or kidney related, but not like this,” she said.  Terence Gee pictured next to his wife, Debbie Gee Gee died with his wife, Debbie Gee, and two daughters, Jennie Gee and Penner, by his side. He was 71 years old.   CBC asked WRHA to provide comments. In an email, a spokesperson said the health authority cannot discuss an individual’s care with the public.  Father was found unmonitored while waiting  Penner said her father was at Seven Oaks Hospital for an iron infusion and doctors there said he needed cardiac care because had difficulty breathing, so they transferred him to St. Boniface Hospital by ambulance.  When he arrived at St. Boniface Hospital, he was on oxygen, she said.  After going into cardiac arrest, Gee was resuscitated by emergency staff in the middle of the hallway in front of other patients, emergency staff told CBC News.  Penner said around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, she received a call from hospital staff saying her father had a cardiac event.  Staff raise alarm over ‘exceptionally dangerous’ wait times at St. Boniface Hospital Penner said she was unaware her father was unmonitored in the ER until she read a CBC News article. She said when a doctor initially met with her, this information wasn’t disclosed — and she had to beg for it.  “I felt like the report she was giving us, which came from the ER, wasn’t complete and perhaps not even truthful,” said Penner.  In a second meeting, a doctor and a nurse told her he was unmonitored in the EMS waiting area and was prioritized to be checked on once per hour, said Penner.  She said staff doesn’t know how long Gee was unmonitored for, and he could’ve been down for 10 to 15 minutes before staff found him in cardiac arrest. Terence Gee pictured with his wife Debbie Gee on their wedding day. “That is basic care to give any person coming into a hospital,” Penner said. “Even if they don’t see a doctor, maybe they don’t even see a nurse, but somebody  to monitor their vital signs.”  Penner said after the event, her dad was taken to a resuscitation room. He then experienced seizures and was put on a ventilator.  “He had no basic reflexes anymore. He was completely brain dead and would never be able to recover,” she said.   Penner said that’s when she and her family decided to take her father off life support.   “He was not a person that wanted to live with somebody looking after him or live in a vegetative state, we all knew that,” she said. “It really wasn’t a question at all. We knew that that’s what he would want.” ‘This is a real person’  Penner said her father joined the RCMP when he was 18 and retired in 2008. He was a classic car lover and was part of the Manitoba Mustang club, she said.  “He just had a big heart. He would help anybody who would do anything for anybody, he would give anybody anything they needed. He adored his grandkids,” said Penner.  Toivi Penner said her father Terence Gee was a retired RCMP officer. He served for 34 years before passing. She said she doesn’t know what her next steps are, but her family is supporting each other through this difficult time and she doesn’t blame anyone at the hospital.  WRHA said a report has been made to St. Boniface’s Hospital’s patient safety team and they’re now reviewing if the event meets critical incident criteria under provincial legislation .  Penner said clearly, some type of change is needed for Manitoba’s health-care system — although she doesn’t know what the first step to fixing it will be. She hopes more health-care workers will speak up about systemic issues in their workplace.  “Everything is a big blur and overwhelming, but I felt it was important that other people hear this is a real person. This is a real scenario and it can happen to you next,” said Penner.  Man who went into cardiac arrest at St. Boniface Hospital’s ER taken off life support 3 days ago 2:09 The family of a man who died after going into cardiac arrest at St. Boniface Hospital ER want answers. He waited 4 hours for care without monitoring until staff noticed he was in distress. In recent days, staff have sounded the alarm on dangerous wait times warning of situations just like this. 2:09 ABOUT THE AUTHOR Peggy Lam Reporter
One man, police dog dead following confrontation in Campbell River RCMP say an area in the 2000-block of the South Island Highway has been cordoned off for an investigation. CBC News · Posted: Jul 08, 2021 3:02 PM PT | Last Updated: July 8 Police Service Dog Gator died while responding to a call in Campbell River, B.C. on July, 8 Vancouver Island RCMP say a man and a police service dog, Gator, have been killed following a violent confrontation near a Tim Hortons in Campbell River.  Just before 9 a.m. Thursday, an officer tried to stop a vehicle “in relation to an outstanding warrant,” an RCMP release says. The vehicle fled the area but was then located in a parking lot on the 2000-block of the South Island Highway.  An officer then “boxed in the vehicle,” and a confrontation occurred between the suspect and the officer who had a police service dog.  During the conflict, the dog was “stabbed and killed, and the suspect was shot and pronounced deceased on scene,” the release says. The officer also sustained a knife injury and was treated. Police Service Dog Gator joined the force in June 2016 where he spent his entire career with his handler at the Campbell River detachment.  “The loss of Campbell River’s Police Dog Service Gator today, is something I never thought I would have to endure. The importance of the role he played in keeping our community safe will not be forgotten,”  Insp. Jeff Preston, officer in charge of the Campbell River RCMP wrote in a statement.  Gator was previously named Campbell River’s Mountie of the Month for his work, notably assisting in an arrest following an armed grocery store robbery and locating a distressed man during snowy weather.  The area has now been cordoned off, as the Independent Investigations Office of British Columbia has been notified and will be investigating all aspects of the incident. Island District RCMP Sgt. Chris Manseau says no further information will be released by police.

Pendant le conflit, le chien a été “poignardé et tué, et le suspect a été abattu et déclaré décédé sur place”, indique le communiqué. L’agent a également subi une blessure au couteau et a été soigné. Le chien de police Gator a rejoint la force en juin 2016 où il a passé toute sa carrière avec son maître au détachement de Campbell River. « La perte du Gator du service de chiens policiers de Campbell River aujourd’hui est quelque chose que je n’aurais jamais pensé avoir à endurer. Jeff Preston, officier responsable de la GRC de Campbell River, a écrit dans un communiqué. Gator a déjà été nommé gendarme du mois de Campbell River pour son travail, notamment en aidant à une arrestation à la suite d’un vol à main armée dans une épicerie et en localisant un homme en détresse par temps de neige. La zone a maintenant été bouclée, car le Bureau des enquêtes indépendantes de la Colombie-Britannique a été informé et enquêtera sur tous les aspects de l’incident.

Walter John BEATTY, Cst., , #37286 June 5, 1961 – January 12, 2021 Eulogy by Ian Ferguson
Wally passed peacefully 12 January 2021 after a long battle with cancer. On behalf of Hugh Stewart and many, many more of his friends, I would like to present a few words about Walter John Beatty. Wally came to Surrey from a brief stint in the Kootenays after Depot. I was in Court Liaison at the time and didn’t work with him on the road, although we did much later at West Shore Detachment. I remember this stocky young guy who never had a bad word for anybody. His work was thorough and professional, always. He was on General Duty in Surrey but his interests were in Marine Section and Traffic Services. He really excelled in those, acing all the courses and being very proficient in all his endeavors. I cannot recall receiving a complaint about Wally. He was very articulate and had no problem with his demeanor with the general public. As well, those enormous shoulders and forearms would scare the crap out of anybody. He could do anything from command a 75 person Tactical Troop, write an operational plan for a large scale crowd control situation or pilot large scale watercraft. He was particularly proud when he told me that he had passed his licence to operate 50 ton marine vessels. When I took over the Island District Tactical Troop in 1994, it was a relief to see an old Surrey chum on the team. I made him the commander of the gas rank and there was no better man for the job. He was one of the original “Smash Brothers”. When we got Big Blue, the Ford 750 support vehicle for the troop, Wally claimed it as his own, along with Brad Thompson. 2020 New Fragment Design x Air Jordan 1 “Glitter” Shoes CK5566-400 It was outfitted superbly, as those two rascals had an affinity for gadgets. Thanks to Rob Cook from MD Charlton for making a ton of money from those two. In 2001, we were part of the massive security unit at the Summit of the Americas. I needed an advance logistics team. Guess who told me he was going? Walter John, with Brad in tow. By the time the troop arrived in Quebec City, everything was done and in place. The only thing Wally didn’t do was learn to speak French. But who can blame him….. A few months before he was diagnosed, he was very busy with his job at the Commissionaires. I know now that his condition was starting to fatigue this powerful man. He called me and asked if I could help him out. It meant travelling to Yukon Territory and train and recertify all the RCMP guards and matrons. I drove 5,000 kilometers in 17 days. I didn’t really want the job, but after all that he had done to help me in my career, I couldn’t say no. I attended all 13 detachments in that time. Needless to say, all the logistical components of that trip were perfectly coordinated by Wally. Wally was kind enough to get my son, Stuart, taken into the ranks of the Commissionaires. In gratitude, whenever we went to the Gorge Pub or the Prairie Inn, I insisted on paying for his rueben sandwich. He didn’t argue at all, as he knew my pension was more than his. He used to suggest that my son was named after Huggie, but I assure you, that is not the case. He had a lot of love for his friends: Kevin, Charles, Colleen, Hugh, Brad and many others. But the absolute love of his life was Jessica. He agonized over his marriage dissolving, as most of us do, but he did everything he could to make sure she was his first priority. I have two regrets in my relationship with Wally. Firstly, I couldn’t get him promoted. In the old days, he would have been at least a S/Sgt. I could write all day about his skills, knowleddge, abiltiy, leadership, courage and caring. But he struggled with writing about his achievements because he was, if nothing else, a humble man. This is very evident when he refused to get any more units of blood to maintain his life. He had received in the neighbourhood of 100 such units. Quite simply, he no longer wanted to be a burden to the health care system. With his passing, he has surely given others a chance at life. There can be nothing more noble. He was a proud Mountie. The number of parades and ceremonies we attended together were incredible. Remembrance Days, Depot Memorial Parades, Legislature Ceremonies, the Royal Nova Scotia Tattoo for a month, Parliament Hill in Ottawa and Hugh Stewart’s Regimental Farewell. In 2005, at the Memorial area in Victoria, Wally and I carried out the trophy, in red serge, for the opening of the World Curling Championship. The handle was broken on Wally’s side of the cup. He was worried that he would get blamed for it. I told him not to worry, that the Swedes had broken it the year before. He gave the organizers shit for it. He told them he would take it and get it repaired and then he would polish it because it was covered in dry beer foam. He told them this would NEVER happen to the Grey Cup! My second regret is that I wasn’t able to attend this service because of Covid restrictions. Walter John Beatty – respected police officer, loving father, exceptional friend, a truly fine human being. Rest in Peace, Brother.
Walter John BEATTY, gendarme, , # 37286 5 juin 1961 – 12 janvier 2021 Eulogie par Ian Ferguson
Wally est décédé paisiblement le 12 janvier 2021 après une longue bataille contre le cancer. Au nom de Hugh Stewart et de nombreux autres de ses amis, je voudrais vous présenter quelques mots sur Walter John Beatty. Wally est venu à Surrey après un bref passage dans les Kootenays après Depot. J’étais en liaison avec la cour à l’époque et je n’ai pas travaillé avec lui sur la route, bien que nous l’ayons fait beaucoup plus tard au détachement de West Shore. Je me souviens de ce jeune homme trapu qui n’a jamais eu de mauvais mots pour personne. Son travail était minutieux et professionnel, toujours. Il était en service général à Surrey, mais ses intérêts étaient dans la section maritime et les services de trafic. Il excellait vraiment dans ces domaines, en suivant tous les cours et en étant très compétent dans tous ses efforts. Je ne me souviens pas avoir reçu de plainte à propos de Wally. Il était très articulé et n’avait aucun problème avec son comportement avec le grand public. De plus, ces énormes épaules et avant-bras feraient peur à qui que ce soit. Il pouvait tout faire: commander une troupe tactique de 75 personnes, rédiger un plan opérationnel pour une situation de contrôle des foules à grande échelle ou piloter une embarcation à grande échelle. Il était particulièrement fier lorsqu’il m’a dit qu’il avait obtenu son permis d’exploiter des navires de 50 tonnes. Lorsque j’ai repris la troupe tactique du district de l’île en 1994, ce fut un soulagement de voir un vieux copain de Surrey dans l’équipe. Je l’ai nommé commandant du rang gazier et il n’y avait pas d’homme meilleur pour le poste. Il était l’un des “Smash Brothers” originaux. Lorsque nous avons eu Big Blue, le véhicule de soutien Ford 750 pour la troupe, Wally l’a revendiqué comme le sien, avec Brad Thompson. Il était superbement équipé, car ces deux coquins avaient une affinité pour les gadgets. Merci à Rob Cook de MD Charlton pour avoir fait une tonne d’argent avec ces deux-là. En 2001, nous faisions partie de l’énorme unité de sécurité du Sommet des Amériques. J’avais besoin d’une équipe logistique avancée. Devinez qui m’a dit qu’il partait? Walter John, accompagné de Brad. Au moment où la troupe est arrivée à Québec, tout était fait et en place. La seule chose que Wally n’a pas fait a été d’apprendre à parler français. Mais qui peut lui en vouloir ….. Quelques mois avant son diagnostic, il était très occupé avec son travail aux commissionnaires. Je sais maintenant que son état commençait à fatiguer cet homme puissant. Il m’a appelé et m’a demandé si je pouvais l’aider. Cela signifiait se rendre au territoire du Yukon pour former et recertifier tous les gardes et matrones de la GRC. J’ai parcouru 5 000 kilomètres en 17 jours. Je ne voulais pas vraiment du travail, mais après tout ce qu’il avait fait pour m’aider dans ma carrière, je ne pouvais pas dire non. J’ai assisté aux 13 détachements pendant cette période. Inutile de dire que toutes les composantes logistiques de ce voyage ont été parfaitement coordonnées par Wally. Wally a eu la gentillesse de faire entrer mon fils, Stuart, dans les rangs des commissionnaires. En guise de gratitude, chaque fois que nous allions au Gorge Pub ou au Prairie Inn, j’insistais pour payer son sandwich rueben. Il n’a pas du tout discuté, car il savait que ma pension était plus que la sienne. Il avait l’habitude de suggérer que mon fils portait le nom de Huggie, mais je vous assure que ce n’est pas le cas . Il avait beaucoup d’amour pour ses amis: Kevin, Charles, Colleen, Hugh, Brad et bien d’autres. Mais l’amour absolu de sa vie était Jessica. Il a souffert de la dissolution de son mariage, comme la plupart d’entre nous, mais il a fait tout ce qu’il pouvait pour s’assurer qu’elle était sa première priorité. J’ai deux regrets dans ma relation avec Wally. Premièrement, je n’ai pas pu le faire promouvoir. Dans l’ancien temps, il aurait été au moins un S / Sgt. Je pourrais écrire toute la journée sur ses compétences, ses connaissances, sa capacité, son leadership, son courage et sa bienveillance. Mais il a eu du mal à écrire sur ses réalisations parce qu’il était, à tout le moins, un homme humble. Cela est très évident lorsqu’il a refusé de recevoir d’autres unités de sang pour maintenir sa vie. Il avait reçu environ 100 unités de ce type. Tout simplement, il ne voulait plus être un fardeau pour le système de santé. Avec son décès, il a sûrement donné aux autres une chance de vivre. Il ne peut y avoir rien de plus noble. C’était un fier gendarme. Le nombre de défilés et de cérémonies auxquels nous avons assisté ensemble était incroyable. Journées du souvenir, défilés commémoratifs des dépôts, cérémonies à l’Assemblée législative, tatouage royal de la Nouvelle-Écosse pendant un mois, colline du Parlement à Ottawa et adieu régimentaire de Hugh Stewart. En 2005, au Memorial Area à Victoria, Wally et moi avons réalisé le trophée, en serge rouge, pour l’ouverture du championnat du monde de curling. La poignée était cassée du côté de Wally de la tasse. Il craignait d’être blâmé pour cela. Je lui ai dit de ne pas s’inquiéter, que les Suédois l’avaient cassé l’année précédente. Il a donné la merde aux organisateurs pour ça. Il leur a dit qu’il le prendrait et le ferait réparer, puis il le polirait parce qu’il était couvert de mousse de bière sèche. Il leur a dit que cela n’arriverait JAMAIS à la Coupe Grey! Mon deuxième regret est de ne pas avoir pu assister à ce service à cause des restrictions de Covid. Walter John Beatty – policier respecté, père aimant, saufio

Clearly, that’s no longer the case.
Of course, brands like COMME des GARÇONS, A Bathing Ape, and UNDERCOVER have been fashion heavyweights for a long time, but it’s only in the past few years that the global fashion audience has begun to learn about the wealth of Japanese clothing brands that have been pushing the envelope of style and creating amazing, high-quality product just out of sight of the masses.
With that in mind, here’s a guide to some of the best Japanese clothing brands that all Highsnobiety readers should know about. For the already familiar, it’s a chance to reflect on the best of the best. For those less informed, the door’s about to open to a whole other level of style.
Working out of Tokyo’s bustling Shibuya, and Wander was founded in 2011 by Keita Ikeuchi and Mihoko Mori. This burgeoning brand has experienced a quick rise to popularity over the past year having been carried by the currents of the techwear revolution. Known for second-to-none technical fabrics and craftsmanship, And Wander has wooed a fashion-conscious audience thanks to a collection of stylish clothing, outerwear, and utilitarian accessories.
Think utility basics like taped seams, GORE-TEX, and a plethora of toggles, then combine all of that with an understated, earth-tone color palette with the occasional explosion of vivid color. Inspired by a deep love for the natural world, and Wander’s collection is intended to get you up, out, and into the wilderness.
Started in 1994 by Shinsuke Takizawa , NEIGHBORHOOD or NBHD is one of the OGs of Japanese streetwear. NEIGHBORHOOD was part of the original Harajuku streetwear scene of the early ’90s, a Tokyo-based movement of friends and peers who effectively founded the Japanese streetwear scene, birthing labels including BAPE, UNDERCOVER, WTAPS, Hysteric Glamour, and GOODENOUGH.
NEIGHBORHOOD draws from Takizawa’s deep passion for historic motorcycle subculture, creating classic American clothing such as leathers, shirting, sweats, flannels, and headwear, all with a distinct biker gang twist.
Though recent collections have seen NEIGHBORHOOD expand into military, prep, Native American, and even early-20th century industrial workwear styles, the brand is still best known for its authentic selvedge denim, manufactured to strict traditional specifications and customized with intricate, natural distress washes that range from classic indigo fades to their iconic “Savage” series.
Porter Yoshida & Co. has long been synonymous with superior Japanese craftsmanship. Established in 1962 as Yoshida’s first private brand marketed under Yoshida & Co., Porter uses the highest quality of materials, including a durable nylon that repels dirt and water. Porter bags are characterized by their timeless appeal, with each model being produced exclusively in Japan.
There’s not too much information on designer Miyagi Hidetaka, founder of MIYAGIHIDETAKA, online. But there’s a lot to be said about his quality-first approach to fashion. It’s an approach that has led to him keeping a pretty low profile, focusing on producing the clothes that he and his peers want to wear, while shunning seasonal collections.
MIYAGIHIDETAKA revels in Japanese fashion’s decade-spanning flirtation with the paisley bandana, a garment steeped in history and subcultural paths. Miyagi Hidetaka started his design career with Mythography, a footwear brand formed in 2012. It was in 2016 that his beloved paisley print was applied to his footwear for the first time.
From sandals and shoes, MIYAGIHIDETAKA has gone on to apply the bandana print to puffer jackets, pants, vests, shirts, and everything in between.
Auralee finds beauty in subtlety. Here, you won’t come across over the top brand narratives or bold flashy clothing. The Japanese label is driven by the evolving traditional notions of minimalism. Its garments and color palettes are gentle, always thoughtfully placed on the cusp of sophistication and comfort. Collections are streamlined, with only the most essential pieces produced, and with textiles always taking center-stage. Consciously-sourced wools and cottons make up the brand’s earthy winter coats, fluffy knitwear, versatile oversized trousers. Auralee will quickly find a home in your rotation.
Now in its 20th year of operations, the Medicom Toy company is deeply interwoven with Japanese fashion and streetwear, as strange as the crossover of toys and clothes might sound on paper.
Though digital culture has revolutionized the world, Japan remains in many regards a physical culture: purchases are made in cash, as the idea of spending money you don’t have is frowned upon; vinyl, CD and even cassette sales are still strong; and much of the stories of subcultures and tribes that you read about are because fashion in Japan is about going out and being seen.
With this considered, Medicom Toy’s popularity is no mystery. From replica dolls of cultural icons like Andy Warhol and the Sex Pistols to reproductions of street culture characters such as Futura2000’s Pointman, KAWS’ companion, and A Bathing Ape’s Baby Milo, Medicom Toy has built a name for producing physical representations of the culture we all obsess over.
Most notable of this is the brand’s Bearbrick series, adorning a distinctive bear figurine with all manner of graphics and visual artifacts celebrating everything from the Grateful Dead to Star Wars to Daft Punk and beyond. Perfect for any maturing streetwear fan thinking of a move into the homewares department…just check with your partner first.
Tetsu Nishiyama, aka TET, was a protégé of Shin in the early ’90s when he started FPAR, a T-shirt brand inspired by the DIY aesthetic of punk and anarchic movements. In 1996 he started WTAPS, pronounced double-taps, taken from the military term for two shots at the same target in quick succession.
As the name suggests, WTAPS is a Japanese fashion brand inspired by authentic military designs, infusing this with streetwear sensibilities and contemporary perspectives to create some of the most sought-after pieces in Japanese streetwear. In Japan, WTAPS is as notorious as Supreme for long lines on release days and rapid sell-out product.
Their Jungle Stock cargo pants and M-65 jackets sit alongside Supreme’s box logo hoodies and BAPE camouflage in streetwear royalty and are essential to any wardrobe — if you somehow manage to get hold of them.
Jun Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER is probably the epitome of Japanese streetwear. For nearly 30 years, the designer’s distinct visual perspective has been influencing design to where contemporary fashion stands today, and early UNDERCOVER designs are now some of the most coveted and sought-after pieces for collectors.
The aesthetic of this Japanese clothing brand is best explained by its own motto: “We make noise, not clothes.” UNDERCOVER is about disruption, subversion, and rebellion, blending pop culture iconography with punk, bondage, goth, and post-modern aesthetics to create the quintessential “punk” streetwear brand.
Founded in 1949 by Kihachiro Onitsuka, ASICS has grown to become one of the leading names in the world of sportswear, above all for its range of footwear. The name ASICS is an acronym of the Latin phrase: anima sana in corpore sano, meaning “healthy soul in a healthy body”, referring to the sporting foundations of the brand. ASICS’ running trainers constitute the company’s biggest focus, consistently ranking among the top running models of the year.
In recent years, ASICS has succeeded in breaking the lifestyle boundary by pushing silhouettes such as the 360 Quantum or Gel Lyte 3 which acted as the blank canvas for a number of high-profile collaborations with names like Ronnie Fieg, Afew, Atmos, and more. With sneaker tastes shifting further in favor of utilitarian, running, and hiking styles, ASICS looks set to dominate both technical and lifestyle markets in coming years.
With perhaps the most fascinating backstory of all, Wacko Maria was founded by Nobuhiro Mori and Keiji Ishizuka, two J-league professional footballers. Starting out as the Rock Steady bar in Tokyo, the venture eventually evolved into Wacko Maria, a Japanese menswear brand inspired by Latin American style and rockabilly subcultures.
Known for its ornate shirting and outerwear with elaborate, embroidered details, and combining traditional artwork such as religious iconography and classic Americana with oversized slogans, the brand has carved out a niche for larger-than-life clothing with an addictively absurd twist, making it a favored brand of style pioneers.
This season the brand created a capsule collection with notorious graffiti artist Neck Face, finding a perfect partner to their unique approach to the no-holds-barred psychobilly aesthetic.
Perhaps one of the most famous contemporary Japanese clothing brands of all, visvim was started in 2000 by Hiroki Nakamura after leaving his position as a designer at Burton Snowboards. Inspired in equal parts by the technical elements of his previous position and the traditional crafts of different cultures that he learned about traveling the world, Nakamura founded Cubism Inc., whose “Free International Laboratory” or F.I.L. endeavors to blend natural, traditional techniques with pioneering contemporary perspectives to create the pinnacle expression of classic clothing.
Dyes made from indigo, mud, and cochineal beetles are applied to textiles as intricate as linen/hemp/silk/angora blends, then treated with modern technologies such as Gore-Tex to find the perfect balance between the functionality of modern manufacturing and the timeless appeal of traditional techniques.
The most famous expression of this technique is Nakamura’s reconfiguration of Native American moccasin, the FBT, a shoe that blends natural leather construction and ornate tassel details with a durable Vibram® outsole and has grown to be one of the most coveted footwear designs of the 21st century.
First founded by designer Masaaki Honma in 1997, mastermind JAPAN is a case study in timeless cool from a Japanese perspective. At its core, mastermind is characterized by two raw ingredients: the color black, and its iconic Skull & Crossbones logo. While so few elements might sound limited on paper, mastermind demonstrates how far you can push the envelope, and in doing so has created one of the most iconic Japanese clothing brands ever.
Fundamental inspirations come from punk and goth aesthetics, but highly technical production techniques such as form-hugging silhouettes, multiple-layered T-shirts and Swarovski® crystal detailing — combined with the brand’s notoriously close-chested operations from which virtually no information ever leaks — have culminated in a brand that creates the pinnacle of streetwear cool at eye-wateringly high prices.
Karl Lagerfeld, notorious Creative Director of Chanel, once cited mastermind JAPAN as one of his favorite labels, and MMJ is one of very few brands to have collaborated with historic French luggage manufacturer, Maison Goyard. Honma closed the brand’s doors unceremoniously in 2013 after 15 successful years, though the brand has recently resurfaced with modest collections and collaborations with the likes of adidas Originals.
Born from true passion, like so many of the most revered Japanese brands, Needles is one of many brands that were created as an offshoot of Nepenthes. Nepenthes was founded by friends Daiki Suzuki and Keizo Shimizu, starting out as a menswear store that imported classic American brands with a heavy influence from Ivy League and prep style.
Over time, the business birthed a number of labels including Nepenthes New York, Engineered Garments, and Needles. Though each brand is worthy of note in its own right, Needles’ bold reworking of classic American military and casual clothing has cemented the label as a wardrobe essential amongst discerning retailers like Haven, Goodhood, and END.
The people behind Cav Empt are a bit like those elusive musicians who write hit songs but never chase fame themselves: though you might not know them, you definitely know their work.
Founders Sk8thing and Toby Feltwell have deep respective histories in the Tokyo fashion and music scenes: Sk8thing is a graphic designer who has created graphics for heavyweight Japanese clothing brands like BAPE, NEIGHBORHOOD, UNDERCOVER, Bounty Hunter, and many more, as well as designing the logos and graphics for NIGO® & Pharrell Williams’ Billionaire Boys Club and ICE CREAM lines; British-born Feltwell started out working in the UK music industry running A&R operations at James Lavelle’s iconic Mo’Wax records, subsequently moving to XL when they acquired Lavelle’s label in the early ’00s.
An invitation to Tokyo to provide legal advice to NIGO® led to positions as Operations Director and Creative Consultant for BAPE, BBC, and Ice Cream. Following the sale of BAPE to IT, Feltwell reconvened with Sk8thing and productions expert Hishi on a new project helmed by three creatives with no financial direction — “Debt through chaos.”
C.E’s collections are a visual exploration of post-modernism, blending far-flung references like 20th-century Italian horror films, French post-structuralist philosophy, Internet 1.0 iconography, and digital archaeology to question the very nature of physicality, permanence, value, and truth. Even the brand’s name is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase, “caveat emptor” — or “buyer beware.”
One of the world’s most respected contemporary menswear designers, Japanese or otherwise, Junya Watanabe worked under Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons before launching his own label within the CdG family in the early ’90s. Much like the output of COMME des GARÇONS itself, arguably the originator of Japanese avant-garde, Watanabe plays heavily with cuts, textiles, and form to create bold reconfigurations of classic menswear designs.
In recent years the Japanese brand is perhaps best known for its use of multiple fabrics in patchwork designs, such as in its ongoing collaborations with Levis, but at the heart of Watanabe’s work is a fascination with different styles of clothing and how the wearer uses them.
As a result, workwear designs are reimagined with modern cuts and futuristic touches, elaborately decorated jackets are designed to be just as easily worn inside-out, and classic pieces like suits and overcoats are disrupted with unexpected touches and textures. If Kawakubo’s avant-garde is a disruption of the visual elements of fashion, then Watanabe’s might be argued to disrupt the functional: it’s a denim jacket like any other, but unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
Launched in 2010, TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist is a pure continuation of Miyashita’s previous work, though some argue the name suggests an even stronger focus on the designer’s own personal perspectives. The designer’s distinct style is present as ever, though arguably with a slightly more refined, matured touch than NUMBER INE.
Collections have taken inspiration from cultural phenomenons such as Oasis, David Bowie, and Country & Western, bringing Miyashita’s impeccable eye for evolution and elevation to each subject.
Yosuke Aizawa’s White Mountaineering is one of a number of Japanese clothing brands that transformed the power of functional, utilitarian clothing into stunning fashion design. Aizawa worked under Junya Watanabe before launching his own label in 2006, producing arctic and climbing-inspired clothing with beautiful details such as embroidery, jacquard weaves, elaborate patterns, and unique fabric blends.
Geometric patterns are particularly prominent in Aizawa’s work, spanning knitwear and shirting to the beautiful parquet floor of the brand’s Tokyo flagship store.
In recent seasons the brand has branched out to collaborate with a number of major labels, including British outerwear specialist Barbour, Saucony sneakers, and adidas Originals — the latter of whom have received widespread acclaim for their elaborate Pitti Uomo presentations.

Ironically, Aizawa has admitted in interviews that his designs are probably unsuitable for genuine mountaineering, but his fascination with the aesthetic and visual elements of cold-weather climates has nonetheless created some of the most interesting creations in Japanese fashion in recent years.
The brainchild of the godfather of Japanese streetwear, Hiroshi Fujiwara , fragment design is but one of a huge roster of labels that leads, one way or another, back to Fujiwara. From launching iconic labels like Goodenough, Head Porter, and Uniform Experiment, to playing the H in Nike’s HTM line alongside Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker, to continuing to reinvent the fashion retail landscape with recent projects The Pool Aoyama and The Parking Ginza.
It’s difficult to choose just one brand that represents Fujiwara’s work, but fragment design is a window into one of Japanese fashion’s most fascinating designers. Distinguished by its unmissable lightning bolt logo, over the years fragment has collaborated with a list of brands as long as your arm, producing subtle elevations of iconic pieces from the likes of Converse, Levis, Oakley, Disney, Starbucks, Stüssy, Casio, visvim…you get the idea.
에어조던 1 하이 OG 디자인 스튜디오
Often Fujiwara’s adjustments will consist of little more than a material upgrade and a tasteful lightning bolt logo placement, but it is precisely this approach that makes Fujiwara such a revered designer and tastemaker — a sort of aesthetic Occam’s Razor that understands that often the simplest and most straightforward version of a product is the most effective.
And, though you might not like every piece fragment releases, when they touch on something that’s significant to you, be it a pair of Air Jordans or a Carhartt jacket, the appearance of that lightning bolt logo becomes a mark of that piece’s timeless, untouchable cool.
Truly, no list about Japanese fashion would be complete without a special mention to COMME des GARÇONS. Founded in 1969 by Rei Kawakubo, COMME des GARÇONS grew in popularity in Japan throughout the ’70s before debuting in Paris in 1981. At first, Kawakubo’s collections were dismissed by critics as “ragged chic,” and her avant-garde approach to fashion design continues to attract praise and scorn in equal measures from across the fashion spectrum.
And so it should, because COMME des GARÇONS is inarguably fashion’s avant-garde. The Japanese brand’s modus operandi has always been to turn things on its head — exemplified by Kawakubo’s recent collaboration with Louis Vuitton, where she cut huge holes into a tote bag, defying the bag’s primary function of holding things.
From designs that bloat and transform the natural human form, to perfumes that some have described as smelling of burnt rubber, to Dover Street Market – a department store that turns the entire retail experience on its head – the essence of COMME des GARÇONS is disruption of the norm.
And between high-end lines such as CdG Homme and CdG Shirt and diffusion lines like CdG Wallet or the CdG Play line and its inimitable heart logo, COMME des GARÇONS truly offers something for everyone in a way that no other brand has, or perhaps even could.
Besides Rei Kawakubo, Yohji Yamamoto is arguably the most famous Japanese fashion designer of the 20th century. At its foundation, Yohji Yamamoto’s designs are a cross-pollination of traditional Japanese design with contemporary perspectives, and the Japanese brand has produced consistently stunning pieces throughout its 35-year history.
What makes the label more interesting, however, is the impact Yamamoto’s work has had on broader fashion, when one considers how many of his signature elements have become commonplace, from extended silhouettes and drop-crotch to asymmetric design and draped, layered style. And yet, with all this considered, the only constant of Yamamoto’s work is the color black, a color the designer himself has described as saying, “I don’t bother you — don’t bother me.”
Beyond his own label, Yamamoto has worked with adidas Originals on the hugely successful Y-3 line, birthplace of the Qasa, one of fashion’s most coveted sneaker designs — no mean feat when you consider revered labels like Chanel, Louboutin and Balenciaga still struggle to make a shoe with half the appeal of a simple Air Jordan. Such is the magic of Yohji Yamamoto: decades of craft and timeless appeal like no other.
Don’t let the Papyrus font logo fool you: nanamica has been one of the true pioneering Japanese fashion brands combining form, fashion, and function for nearly 15 years now. Eiichiro Homma founded the brand in 2003, creating product that combines weather-ready technical elements with a rustic, natural aesthetic.
Maybe you don’t have to dress like a nylon Gore-Tex ninja whose whole outfit rustles with the slightest movement just to stay dry? Maybe you can dress in your usual style, but know there’s a wealth of hidden touches that mean your canvas chore jacket will see you through the day? Enter nanamica, bringing with them a wealth of iconic styles that slot into any outfit, but with a technical edge you’re unlikely to see anywhere else.
Still need convincing? The brand is also responsible for The North Face’s highly coveted Japanese sublabel, The North Face Purple Label, revered across the streetwear landscape for its elevated takes on classic TNF pieces. These guys don’t just get technical style, they define it.
Evisu is another label that’s easy to take for granted in the present day, now that their iconic seagull logo is part of the cultural fabric, but the story of its origin is actually one of the most fascinating out there. Started in 1991 by Hidehiko Yamane, initial production could only support up to 14 pairs of jeans being made, producing raw selvedge denim jeans of exceptionally high quality.
There are several stories about the origins of the brand’s name, a popular one being that Evisu was a deliberate misnomer of Levis — even more convincing when you consider the brand’s origins in Osaka, the knock-off capital of Japan, and the similarities between Levi’s and Evisu’s rear pocket “seagull” designs. In fact, Evisu is a reference to Ebisu, a Japanese god of money, something Yamane was keen to make when he founded the brand.

During World War II, however, rationing and conservation meant Levis was not allowed to stitch the pattern into the back of their jeans, much like their hollowed-out “donut” buttons that saved metal during the war effort. As a result, the brand had to paint their branding on instead, something that Evisu references in their own painted logo.
Like many of his contemporaries such as Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake is a true revolutionary. Where Kawakubo introduced the avant-garde and Yamamoto collided tradition with progression, Issey Miyake brought the power of technology and technicality to fashion.
From pleated garments produced in such a way that they “remember” their pleats through washes to his iconic prism handbag, covered with geometric panels that fold and fluctuate like pixels in a computer game, there’s a thread that runs through all of Miyake’s creation that points to a true understanding of fashion design as design — as the creation of a functional item with purpose that should improve the quality of life of the wearer.
Perhaps it’s this mentality that made the Japanese fashion label one of Steve Jobs’ go-to brands, leading to Miyake producing dozens of black turtleneck sweaters for the Apple CEO, eventually becoming part of the legend of the man himself.
In recent years, Uniqlo has made itself comfortable in the streets and shopping malls of numerous major American and European cities, so it’s easy to take the Japanese fast-fashion brand for granted, but when they first appeared in Western countries a few years ago, they really shook things up.
Established in the 1980s as the “Unique Clothing Warehouse,” an administrative error led to the brand being registered as Uni-qlo. What separates Uniqlo from other mass-market fashion brands is their approach to collections, an equal balance of straightforward, uncompromising classics, and fun, wildcard designs.
On the one hand, their jackets and pants feel like the archetype: no superfluous pockets, silly zippers, or whacky decorations. But then their UT T-shirt line consistently comes through with lighthearted, everyday T-shirts with fun graphics from the likes of Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Disney, KAWS and many more.
Round all this off with the fact that even mainstream Japanese fashion brands have to manufacture product to a higher quality to satisfy their domestic customer, and you’ve got an affordable, everyday brand making quality staples to work into your rotation .
Cult Japanese brand Suicoke opened its doors for business in 2006 selling small accessories. Since then, the label’s direction has changed, now centering on performance sandals. Offering a modern take on the sandal through the use of high-quality components and a string of coveted collaborations, Suicoke has opened the style up for a new demographic of customer.
Famed for its technical aesthetic, numerous straps, and neoprene panels, Suicoke has received so much attention thanks to its distinctive visual identity. That’s not to say that durability and comfort are any lower on the priority list, though. Vibram sole units are a common denominator throughout the Suicoke collection, from the most minimal iterations such as the Depa to intricate, engineered models like the Moto.
In the arena of modern Japanese culture, few names loom as large as Nigo. Founder of A Bathing Ape and long-time friend and collaborator of Kanye and Pharrell, Nigo began his life as the DJ of Japanese rap group Terriyaki Boyz. Human Made began as a side project for Nigo as a place for the creative to release things that did not align with A Bathing Ape.
Human Made has grown to become a coveted brand in its own right, testifying to the endless appreciation of NIGO’s creativity. With a more homemade, playful aesthetic, Human Made ticks all the boxes for the Japanese market and has become a major player in America during its 10 years of life thanks in large part to ongoing collaborations with adidas.
Informed by a seasonal trip to the wilderness by founder Kobayashi Setsumasa and close friends, Mountain Research returns each season with a fresh offering of highly technical clothing that also takes design cues from modern style. Originally founded in 1993 under the name General Research, Setsumasa changed the name to Mountain Research in 2006 in honor of the brand’s main source of inspiration.
Mountain Research distinguishes itself from the multitude of Japanese technical brands with an eye for subversion. At its core, the brand deals in engineered pieces for the outdoor, but where others often fail, each Mountain Research piece is equally as comfortable slotting into a modern everyday wardrobe.
Originally established as a physical store, South2 West8 was born in Sapporo in Northern Japan. Founder Kaname Nagaoka styles the label after Tenkara fly fishing, borrowing the technical aspects of the waterproof fishing gear while imbuing each piece with urban sensibility. South2 West8 makes up part of the Nepenthes, an umbrella company founded by Keizo Shimizu which also includes Engineered Garments, Needles, RANDT, and AIE.
While many brands take inspiration from sports and activities, few hold it as closely at South2 West8. Instead of borrowing styles and materials from the world of fly fishing, South2 West8 still makes items specifically intended for use within the sphere of fishing. This commitment to the founding inspirations has garnered a cult following for the brand thanks to an honest dedication to effective utilitarian design.
In recent seasons, South2 West8 has taken a more modern approach, with each collection featuring a handful of heavily patterned or brighter pieces intended for an urban environment. The brand’s most recent collection married tie-dye prints to traditional netted fishing vests, showing that staying true to outdoor roots doesn’t mean ignoring modern style.
Originally founded in1985 by Toshikiyo Hirata, Kapital was originally called Capital after its hometown of Kojima, otherwise known as the denim capital of Japan. At first, Capital was a sewing and dyeing factory that laid the foundations for what would grow to become one of the world’s most highly respected denim specialists in the world.
In 1996, after honing its craft designing and manufacturing for other companies, Capital was renamed Kapital and began to perfect its signature artisanal, handmade, cut-and-sew style. Over the past 30 years, Kapital has become known for perfecting Americana style with innovative crafting and dyeing techniques as well as premium-quality denim.
Kapital clothing can usually be recognized thanks to its unusual levels of detailing and high-quality materials, but other tell-tale signs include patchwork bandana prints and the brand’s favorite motif: the smiley face.
Beginning life in 1996 as the in-house brand for Tokyo clothing shop Okura, Blue Blue Japan outgrew Okura relatively quickly. Now known worldwide for its own sake, Blue Blue Japan takes inspiration from classic workwear styles and classic dyeing processes using indigo.
As the name suggests, Blue Blue Japan is best known for its traditional use of indigo. We can trace the tradition of indigo dyeing back to ancient times when kimonos that displayed the deep blue hue that ties together all of the label’s clothing were treasured.
Blue Blue Japan honors its home country’s history by producing seasonal collections of understated, timeless workwear styles lacking overt branding that emphasize the patterns and colors associated with Japanese history.
Founded in 1976 by Etsuzo Shitara and Osamu Shigematsu, Beams began life as a lifestyle store in Tokyo.

Beams released Beams Plus in 1999, the menswear line of the company which has overtaken the other verticals in the international market. The label is known for its workwear-inspired collections that place a central focus on traditional style and premium quality materials.
Beams has maximized its reach and cultural weight through a string of highly successful and sought-after collaborations. From Clarks to Arc’teryx, Timex, Levi’s, and many more, Beams has positioned itself as one of Japan’s most relevant sartorial exports in the 21st century.
Sacai was founded in 1999 in Tokyo by Chitose Abe who had previously worked at Japanese powerhouses Junya Watanabe and COMME des GARÇONS. Having learned from the best, Abe set about breaking boundaries with men’s and women’s collections that blurred the line between formal and casual.
As well respected in high-fashion circles as it is in the world of streetwear, Sacai has been led to such high praise thanks to intelligent positioning by Abe. Sacai’s main collections look to androgynous silhouettes with subtle design flairs for impact while Sacai’s collaboration collections often steer more to the world of streetwear.
Perhaps best known for its recent collaboration with Nike on the LD Waffle silhouette, Sacai’s future looks bright. At a time when luxury and streetwear are merging more by the week, Sacai looks comfortably positioned to garner attention from both sides of the spectrum.
Sasquatchfabrix is the offspring of Tokyo design collective Wonder Wonker Guerrilla Band . Hiromichi Ochiai and Daisuke Yokoyama design each collection with a distinctive 90s skate aesthetic as well as a sprinkling of unique unorthodoxy. By connecting the dots between experimental, conceptual design, and more accessible streetwear, Sasquatchfabrix has secured a niche in a market in which it’s becoming increasingly hard to do so.
Taking inspiration from skate and graffiti culture, Sasquatchfabrix’s collections are fundamentally rooted in street style, but in keeping with the brand’s founders — a multidisciplinary creative collective — the collections encompass much more than that.
It’s in this ability to touch on multiple cultural references throughout each collection that has really distinguished Sasquatchfabrix from the crowd. Traditional Asian motifs sit alongside technical fabrics, eye-catching modern graphics, and workwear silhouettes in one harmonious whole. 2020 New Fragment Design x Air Jordan 1 “Glitter” Shoes CK5566-400
