Maintain the RightEdit

Someone had added the following reference:

  • When one of the mountees says "Maintain the right boys," he's referencing the 1970 book "Maintain the Right," by Ronald Atkin, which chronicles the birth of the Royal Mounted Canadian Police (the mountees), or the 1940 short film of the same name and general subject matter.

However, "Maintain the Right" is actually the common English translation of the motto of the RCMP, "Maintiens le droit." That's where the name of the book comes from. The book, however, is apparently one recommended by the RCMP as a good source for their history. Incidentally, there's a war on Wikipedia over this translation, even though that is the translation they use. I'm changing this reference, but I wanted to keep the info the other editor researched on the talk page because it is useful info. Rifter0x0000 (talk) 23:07, February 22, 2013 (UTC)
