Unknown uniform

I am looking to identify a uniform worn by one of my Ancestors. I'm not even sure yet who he is but I know he comes from the English side of my family. They immigrated to Canada approximately 1885 and ended up in Portage LaPrairie, Manitoba. From there the family scattered from Ontario to British Columbia. I'm not sure if this is an English Uniform or a Canadian Uniform. He has a star on his hat so it might be a Provincial Police Uniform...

Anyone have any ideas about this??

Sorry if I haven't responded. All of a sudden, many replies. Yes we are related as my line goes to Gerard-1 and yours to Michael 1.
I can't remember if this was send.

Gerrard-1, William-2, William-3, Matthias-4, Timothy-5, Daniel-6. Joseph Arnold-7, Foster Wright-8, R. Milford-9, and myself Dana R. Spencer
My e-mail is and I would like to obtain a picture of Russell Gordon. Many of the Loyalist from the Spencers went to Canada--especially Nova Scotia but some went to Spencerville, etc.
Thank you for the nice letter.
