Lots of people are talking about the recruitment video from the Royal Nfld Constabulary Association.  It's got lots of action, including images of a riot squad and drawn weapons. Some love it; some hate it. We're asking for your thoughts: Does the video take the right approach? Ramona's guests are Cst Warren Sullivan of the RNC Association and video instructor and producer, Peter Walsh. Oh, and if you haven't seen the video, here's the link: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/rnc-chief-defends-hard-hitting-recruitment-video-1.2807330
