Once again we have had thefts from vehicles and attempted break-ins in our downtown building.
The RCMP officers come, take a report, and nothing changes. My wife and I just returned from reporting another car prowl and theft from vehicles in our parkade.
This must stop!
The officers we spoke with told us they simply do not have the manpower to police effectively and are doing the best they can. The drug dealers run rampant, the thefts continue, can anything be done about this problem?
On their advice we will again start reporting all illegal activity we witness in and around our building for whatever good it will do. We stopped reporting the public drug abuse, the vagrancy and assaults which we often see.
I would be happy to see my taxes increase if it meant adequate police protection and service.
