The humble licence plate has but one job, positively identifying the vehicle it is attached to. Without license plates, how would we know who owned the vehicle? How would you complain about an erratic driver or report your stolen vehicle?

During this time period the Oceanside RCMP received 221 complaints.

Oceanside RCMP, Oceanside Community Safety and Save on Foods Parksville teamed up for a food drive in support of the Mount Arrowsmith Salvation Army Food Bank. Thanks to you, we appear to have raised over $3,500 in donations and a pallet of food items at the Cram the Cruiser event today. We will get an exact count on Monday, March 14th, from the Salvation Army.
During this time period the Oceanside RCMP received 224 complaints.
