A tank or an APC? A tank has a large turret in the front.

Pretty sure it would have been an APC. Likely one of the Cougars donated to the RCMP from the Canadian Forces in 2010.

Armoured vehicles adopted by B.C. RCMP - British Columbia - CBC News

Perhaps the RCMP can borrow a tank from the Canucks now that they are well into their offseason:
