Kitimat vs Terrace Crime rates
Comment by MaggieJo Johnson on 31st January 2012
Funny comment, Ted. You had me there at first when I was like.."WT?! OF COURSE there's ongoing crime in Kitimat!"

In response to your querie: Yes, we do have something in the drinking water here in Terrace; added flouride - HA HA!

Keep in mind: The RCMP are extremely busy tending to intoxicated related after intoxicated related crimes .. and then with repeat offenders over and over (as we can clearly read from all these activity reports). Perhaps some Detachments do not have adequate personnel to be assigned yet another job to report on these matters.

In any event, 'glad to have you on board from Kitimat in joining what I call "TAC" - the Team Against Crime.

Now remember, the Police can't be everywhere at all times as we can clearly read their time is so consumed with preventable situations in the first place. In the interim...let's help reduce the crime rates by remaining counsciously engaged in getting to know our neighbors and those in our Communities; while building relationships of trust and expectations with those around us.
Kitimat doesn't have the same crime as Terrace.
Comment by Ted Bergen on 31st January 2012
There must be something in the drinking water in Terrace. It makes the people in Terrace do crazy things which wastes all sorts of valuable RCMP's time. However, the water in Kitimat must be just fine. We have very little crime in this town. Ask anyboby. They will honestly tell you that they haven't heard of any crime in this town, just read the daily RCMP report for Kitimat. If we don't hear about it in the media it just didn't happen, right????
I am proud to live in a community with "little to no" crime.
Shhhhhh, don't tell the Kitmat people that they have the same issues as Terrace, that will just bring the truth out.
Obviously, my artical is meant to be a little sarcastic to bring attention to the lack of current information regarding RCMP activities in our community. I think we have a right to know what is going on in our community in a timely manner.
What does Kitimat & Terrace think.
