After much deliberation, the Vancouver Police Department has finally chosen a name for their newest member.

The VPD have spent the last two months assessing a four-year-old Clydesdale and he performed better than they could have imagined.

His name was shortlisted from a selection of four:

  • Juno
  • Vimy
  • Justice
  • Mason

Mason came out on top in an online poll from the last two weeks. Over 4,000 people voted and Mason was by far the most popular, and is, in fact, the horse’s original name when he came to the VPD.

A winner was randomly picked to come and visit Mason, and that lucky winner is Alison Meek.
