Agreement with Leanne
Comment by Maggie Jo on 20th October 2011
Of course this has been going on in Terrace for ages. I agree with Leanne's comment that it simply wasn't common knowledge.

Perhaps next time we see a crew of Officers sitting at Timmy's to get a well-deserved break for a change (while they're still on call to deal with our residents' sillyness), we can buy them a coffee instead of judging them.

It is normal for Terrace, it just wasn't common knowledge.
This is not normal for Terrace.
Comment by Janice P. Robinson on 19th October 2011
This is Tsimshian territory, and we need you to know that shaming oneself in public is unacceptable to us too. We all have done it, but never with our crests flying. Those who put our regalia on do not drink, and we try our darndest not to bring shame to our families.

Terrace does have a wild reputation. I like it. I think newcomers, and there's been many, mistakenly assume we are not law abiding here. It's not a native/non-native thing. We're just a little crazy.....not a colour thing.

There is no excuse for public drunkeness. The drinkers who use the "damp" shelter should only be allowed to drink on shelter property. Period.

There's a real loud horn attached to firehall. A ten o'clock curfew for people up to grade twelve age (16) during the school year.

When it comes to evening babysitting duties and mental health crises.....if everybody fulfilled their mandates and mission statements, then the RCMP can get back to theirs.
A pot? A POT?!
Comment by Maggie Jo on 19th October 2011
A mother hit her daughter in the face with a pot? A POT?!?!!! HOLY CRAP!

Perhaps she's been watching too many episodes of Bugs Bunny and Wylie Coyote.

And what's with people pulling indecent acts in public. For heaven's sake...get a room!

Eiy yi yiiiiii....
