Did you know that horses in the Toronto Police Mounted Unit have trading cards? One of the mounted officers at the East York Canada Day celebration had a giant wad of cards for Spencer, one of the horses attending the party, and was going through them quickly as dozens of kids (and Risa) mobbed him. The front, above, has a formal portrait taken at the top of Riverdale Park. The reverse has short bios for both human and horse officers:

Now I know why the police budget is $1 billion plus.
Actually, the cards are donated to the unit and the photographer (me) volunteers her time to do the photos. No money comes from the unit and the cards forge a link between kids and cops.
BOOM! You tell them, Anne!
