And we have the nerve to ask..."Don't the Police have anything better to do than give me a seatbelt ticket?!"

Well, apparently they do.

They're inundated by responding to multiple calls for repeat offenders and repeat drunks lining our streets. Nice. Real nice.

What a waste of our RCMP resources by these repeat offenders. But then again...the RCMP have to do what they have to do to keep the rest of us Citizens safe, by pulling up their sleeves to go tend to yet another repeat offender. It's part of their job and they have to do just that...the same as handing out tickets.

'Realizing that a majority of their call-outs are intoxicated-related is a true embarassment to our Community. But, again...thank you to the RCMP for keeping the rest of us safe while these destructive, careless, bullying hooligans are ruining the party for everyone else.
Road maintenance
Comment by Dave on 30th January 2012
How many accidents have there been in the north this winter due to inadequate road maintenance?
Slush, ice and hours before they are dealt with!
We as taxpayers are paying for MAINTENANCE and we are also paying through ICBC for unsuitable contracts.
Wish the Ministry took back control and providing the service.
